Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Karen Kane Three Quarter Sleeve Jersey Cascade Faux Wrap Dress

stretchy cozy comfortable machine-washable dress for work Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This stretchy, cozy, washable dress has been in our Workwear Hall of Fame for some time, but I’m not sure we’ve ever featured it in plus sizes (only regular). Every year it comes out in new iterations — different colors, different prints, different sleeves. Nordstrom has the basics in neutral black and navy in regular and plus sizes for $108-$124, while Amazon has options as low as $27.  Karen Kane Three Quarter Sleeve Jersey Cascade Faux Wrap Dress

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Cropped Blazer

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

To me, this doesn’t really seem like a “cropped” blazer as it’s labeled, as much as a fitted/shrunken blazer. (Although it does look a little shorter in the back.) I like the darts and the very simple collar, and I think it would make a great basic. It comes in plus (0X–2X) and regular (XS–XL) sizes; the former is on sale for $49.99 from $70, and the latter, $43.99 from $64. The blazer is made from a rayon/nylon/spandex blend, so it has a bit of stretch, and it’s machine washable. Simply Vera Vera Wang Cropped Blazer

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Square Neck Blouse

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

Happy Friday, everyone! Loft seems to have decided that square-neck blouses are in right now — and I’m kind of into them, too. It’s not quite a boatneck and not as bra strap-baring as that neckline tends to be. It’s still pretty and feminine and has a bit of personality. This top, which is $49.50, comes in regular and petite sizes as well as plus sizes, and we’re picturing the plus-size model. Note that (since it’s not obvious in the image here) it has a high-low hemline. It’s machine washable and has a few positive reviews so far. Square Neck Blouse

Psst: Loft is offering 40% off dresses, skirts, and shorts today!

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Cotton Knit Shift Dress

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

Finding dresses with sleeves and pockets can be very difficult — and finding one that’s not too tight and clingy can also be tough — so this strikes me as a great dress, especially because it comes in sizes XS–6X. You could dress it up or down depending on the day, and because it’s eShakti you can change the neckline, sleeve length, and more — it’s totally customizable. I like it as shown here, a little loose around the middle — and if you add a set of pearls or a scarf with a pair of classic pumps, you’ve got a very easy outfit for the day. It’s versatile, so you could also wear it with Birks or other comfy sandals on the weekend, and it’d be nice for vacation, as well. It’s machine washable and has a hidden back zip and bra-strap keeps. The “base price” for the dress is $54. Cotton Knit Shift Dress
