Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Reader J wrote to us with a question about the plus-sized version of this dress: “What do you think about this? Sometimes its hard to know how it would drape but I think (from the picture) that it has good structure. I think I really like the print and am 5’10 so I can usually pull a print off. But at the same time I also kind of hate the print/think it could look ugly. What do you think? Could I get away with this at work, is it ugly?” We agree that prints can be very case-by-case — one print will look great on one girl, but hideous on another — and florals are a big trend right now, so this is something we should talk about. Here, we like the more abstract nature of the pattern, as well as the strong emphasis on dark brown and purple — for the office, we would focus on picking up those colors in a cardigan or blazer. As always with Donna Ricco, we do love the structure (all of our DR dresses are slimming and comfortable, but without the need for massive shapewear). You can get it at Nordstrom for $118 (in regular sizes) or $128 (in plus sizes). Donna Ricco Split Neck Stretch Cotton Sheath Dress
