Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. The shade of blue of this collared knit dress from Reiss really caught my eye as I was scrolling through the Bloomingdale’s dress section. As we’re getting pelted with snow in the Northeast, I’d probably wear this with my coziest black tights and boots, but I can also dream of wearing it with a white blazer and heels when the temperature is finally above freezing. . The dress is $285 at Bloomingdale’s and comes in sizes XS–XL. It also comes in navy. Donna Morgan has a more affordable alternative at ..read more

Weekend Open Thread

Something on your mind? Chat about it here. January sales are always a great time to hunt for statement coats — after all, you might not want to wear a hot pink wool coat every single day. (ALTHOUGH: you could with this one — I can’t think of any totally clashing colors.) In general, Sam Edelman coats have been reader favorites because of their affordability and their warmth. The pictured coat looks like a great basic for all outfits; long enough for skirts and the oversized look means you can easily fit blazers beneath it. It was $220, but is now marked to $150 in sizes XS-XXL; it’s also av ..read more

Harper’s Bazaar talked to “Queen of Brows” Anastasia Soare for Anastasia Beverly Hills’ 25th anniversary. WIRED noted that Cartier is using AR to show customers what jewelry would look like on their hands. (The Jetsons, anyone?) The Muse announced its VIBE Awards for the Best Companies for Office Life and Perks. Harvard Business Review reported on how research has shown that “when men feel that their gender identity is being questioned or threatened, they are much more likely than women in similar situations to respond by engaging in harmful behaviors.” A Wall Street Journal writer explaine ..read more

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Cardigan with Faux Pearl Buttons
Corporette
by Elizabeth
3d ago
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This V-neck cardigan with faux pearl buttons from T Tahari is warming my preppy little heart. A pearl embellishment can look a little costume-y, but I think this one pulls it off perfectly. The length looks a little shorter than I would prefer (or maybe the model just has a very long torso?), so I would suggest pairing this with a dress or a pair of very high-waisted pants if you want to avoid a crop top look for the office. The sweater is $24.97 at Nordstrom Rack and comes in sizes XS–XL. It’s also ..read more

Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have. We haven’t done a roundup on cashmere sweaters for work in a long while — which are your favorites right now? If you work from home part of the time, do you find that you’re wearing them more with jeans at home? In terms of the “warmest sw ..read more

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Corda Sweater Polo

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. If you’ve spent time working in male-dominated industries, you’ve probably been to a lot of events where the unspoken dress code for attendees is “polo shirt and khakis.” Personally, I’ve never found polo shirts to be that flattering on me, so I’m always on the lookout for something that’s roughly equivalent. This sweater polo from Banana Republic would be perfect for those very casual business-casual events. I would wear this rust orange color with a pair of gray or navy ankle pants and a pair of l ..read more

Suit of the Week: Old Navy

For busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional. Old Navy hasn’t had conservative workwear in a few years now — they used to be a great source for really basic sheath dresses and pencil skirts, but no more. So I was intrigued to see that they have a TON of matching suit pieces right now. This crepe pants suit looks great, with (and is getting ..read more

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Grace Knit Jacket

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. As an elder millennial, it’s impossible for me to see a jacket like this one without humming the Cake song from the early aughts, but I do think this long blazer from Nic + Zoe would be an incredibly versatile business casual piece. OK fine, I probably wouldn’t pair it with a short skirt, but I think we can all agree that it would go beautifully with a pair of slim-fitting trousers or even layered over a pair of dark skinny jeans. (And fingernails that shine like justice are always in style.) To my ..read more

Oooh: this brand is new to me, but if you’re a fan of sculptural heels, these shoes look great! According to the brand’s website (which notes that she’s been around for 10 years and has won several awards), Andy Warhol once said that shoes can be art; it’s safe to say that Kat Maconie’s eye-catching designs fall into that category. From Taylor Swift to Rita Ora her statement heels have put a spring in the step of some of the world’s most fashionable women. Kat Maconie shoes are instantly recognisable by their dazzling colour palette, statement hardware fra ..read more
