Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Reader S wrote in to recommend this dress: “I’m always on the hunt for versatile pieces that I can wear to work and on the weekend. I find dresses are usually my best bet with this purpose in mind–but they can be tough to find. The “Delightful Day” dress fits that bill. I’m wearing it right now with a black blazer and high black heels for a corporate-environment-friendly Friday outfit. If I take the blazer off and switch to a more casual belt (something woven or weathered leather) and slip on some sandals or espadrilles, I have a pretty weekend dress. It’s very comfortable and is made from a thin-ish material perfect for a hot summer day. It’s also flattering on a curvier frame.” I think this is a great example of something that isn’t usually my style (beyond all the blue) but that I would totally want if I saw S in the hallway wearing it. I like the black blazer and heels with it, and I think the belt is a great way to switch the vibe from dressier to casual. The dress is $84.99 at Modcloth (limited sizes only, alas).
