We’ve been doing our Washable Workwear Wednesdays for a while now, and I’ve learned there are a few brands that one can reliably look to for washable clothes. So if you’re on the hunt, I thought we’d round them up:

Not only is Boden one of Corporette readers’ favorite places to shop on the Internet, but a TON of their dresses are washable, particularly their ottoman dresses. Bonus: they sell kids’ clothes too, so you can do one-stop shopping. The brand offers sizes up to 18, as well as short and tall styles. Pictured.
4. Lands’ End
Corporette readers love Lands’ End washable ponte dresses, but do note that their suiting pieces are mostly machine washable as well. The brand also offers plus, petite, and, occasionally, tall sizes. Pictured.

6. Eileen Fisher
Not only does Eileen Fisher focus on the human rights aspects and environmental impact of its supply chain through Vision 2020 (and is otherwise friendly to ladies who prefer slow fashion workwear), but most of the pieces are machine washable. Another pro: most pieces are also available in petites and plus sizes. Corporette readers love this pair of pants so much they call them the magic pants for work. Pictured.
7. Vince Camuto
Whether you’re a mother or not, Not Your Daughter’s Jeans (aka NYDJ) has a ton of washable workwear, some of it with a bit of secret shaping power, including blouses, dresses, pants and more. In fact, readers think they make one of the best pants for work! Pictured.
9. Hobbs London
As Betabrand explains on its website, “Brand-new ideas spring to life on our site every day [and] our fans co-design and crowdfund them into existence.” The brand (or “online clothing community,” as it labels itself) became known for their yoga pants for work, but they’ve expanded heavily — their WorkIt collection has a TON of dresses, blazers, and more, all of them blending athletic performance fabrics with traditional workwear shapes. (If you’re a new customer, use this referral link to get $15 off your first order!) Pictured: yoga pants for work.
11. Karen Kane
Karen Kane offers dresses, skirts, blouses and more for work, many of them machine washable and available in regular and plus sizes. This $108 dress — often on sale for even lower! — has been a reader favorite, and comes out in new prints and colors in long-sleeves and short-sleeves every season (you can often find previous seasons on Amazon!). Pictured.
There’s less selection at workwear startup Pivotte, but I must say I’ve been living in the drapey washable wool cardigan I bought for myself — I highly recommend — and as of 2019 they have a ton of great washable pants. Pictured.
Ladies, have you found any other reliable brands for washable workwear? What are your favorites?
