Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Merino Sweater Jacket

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Merino Sweater JacketI always like a good sweater blazer or jardigan, and this one from Talbots looks really promising. It comes in a ton of colors in all four size ranges (regular, petite, women’s, and women’s petites) and is handwashable. If you’re on the shorter side, reviewers note that the sleeves and jacket run long, so you might want to try this one in petite.  It’s marked down today to $111-$126.  Merino Sweater Jacket

Psst: Nordstrom is having Triple Points days from September 19 to September 23! It’s a great time to stock up on basics like these hose, these pants, this dress, this comfortable pump under $100, these flats, or this line of awesome bags for work.

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Stretch Crepe Pants

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

comfortable magic pants for workWe’ve included these pants in a lot of roundups over the past year or so, but I don’t think we’ve ever featured them by themselves for a Workwear Report. Heralded by the readers as “magic pants” and “professional pajamas,” these pants are the thing you wear when you want comfort and style — certainly a solid pick for when you’re seeking comfortable workwear for late nights. They are a pull-on style, have no pockets, and have instructions to “dry clean or machine wash cold, tumble dry low.” They’re $168-$178, available in regular, petite and plus sizes, and come in a bazillion colors in the slim ankle pants (pictured in navy), as well as in straight leg full length styles.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Plus-Size Solid Knot-Front Empire Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This dress from Kohl’s is $110 full price, but right now you can get $20 off when you spend $100+ (and $10 off when you spend $50+). It comes in two really pretty shades of purple, aubergine (pictured) and berry (plus “posh blue”), and I like the knot detail, the v-neck, the sleeves, and the slightly-below-the-knee length. It’s machine washable, and it’s getting great reviews. The dress also comes in regular sizes for $95 and has some lucky size options on clearance for $33. Plus-Size Chaps Solid Knot-Front Empire Dress

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Plus-Size Classic Cap-Sleeve Wrap Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’m pretty sure we’ve featured this dress from Lark & Ro before in regular sizes — but the plus-size version looks great and is highly rated at Amazon. (Their description says this “new and improved version of [their] best-selling wrap dress” was made in response to customer feedback.) For a $45 dress that’s machine washable and comes in a ton of colors and a wide size range, it’s definitely worth a try if you’re on the hunt. Note that it’s a true wrap dress, not a faux wrap. The dress is available in sizes 1X–5X and is eligible for Prime and free returns (and Prime Wardrobe as well). Lark & Ro Plus-Size Classic Cap-Sleeve Wrap Dress

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Plaid Square Neck Sheath Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I am absolutely loving this dark emerald sheath dress from Ann Taylor, in part because it doesn’t seem like an Ann Taylor dress at all. It’s more like the kind of thing I’d find at ModCloth or Unique Vintage and then ponder the quality of, and whether it would be too tight or not pretty or not flattering, and so on, but it’s from Ann Taylor, so those things aren’t really in question. You pretty much know what you’re going to get, quality-wise, at Ann Taylor. I think it’s a really cute dress, and it’s different and cool. I wish it had pockets (and who doesn’t?), but it’s machine washable, so it has that going for it. Note that it also comes in black. The dress is available in regular (0–18), petite (00–14), and tall (0–18) sizes and is $129–$139. Of course, with Ann Taylor, things are often 40% off, so keep an eye out for sales. Plaid Square Neck Sheath Dress

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Pleat-Front Cotton-Knit Sheath Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This emerald green sheath dress from eShakti is gawgeous, and I really like the pleated waist. I also like it as styled here with the roundneck and the sleeves, but as with all eShakti styles, you can change the neckline to a V-neck or scoopneck or U-neck, and so on, and you can change the sleeves to puffed, or long, or elbow length, or whatever you want. (Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like you can add pockets.) The dress is machine washable and has a hidden back zip and bra strap keeps, too. It comes in sizes XS–6X in green, black, red, and a yellow floral — all are $59.95 except for the floral, which is on sale for $38.95. Pleat-Front Cotton Knit Sheath Dress
