Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
I feel like this blazer has been around in seasons past, but this “lush green” color looks fresh to me. (It’s also in cobalt! A beeeyoootiful cobalt! But I’ve posted a lot of cobalt lately, so let’s post the green. It also comes in black.) Green, of course, is harder to wear than cobalt, but I think there are a lot of opportunities — try it with navy, gray, black, even a smidgen of dark purple (hello, purple pumps).
If you have a French blue or other light blue blouse, I might try it with that and gray pants for a very springy look. The blazer is $150 at Nordstrom, available in sizes 0-14. Vince Camuto One-Button Blazer
2017 Update: This simple cotton blazer is still available in regular, petite, and plus sizes, and is STILL in our Workwear Hall of Fame! It continues to come out in new and neutral colors, season after season, and wins rave reviews. (It’s often available in petite and plus sizes, too!) Nordstrom seems to have the best selection, but you can find the blazer elsewhere; 6pm.com and Amazon both have options.
