Washable Workwear Wednesday: Striped Tie-Neck Shirtdress

I really like the combination of elements in this dress. I like how the black and white vertical stripes are broken up by the elasticized waist that has a little bloused element to it. The elasticized waist makes the dress look like it could be separates. There are buttons down the front to the waist, which could be helpful for pumping at work. I like the v-neck with ties, although I would probably tie them instead of leaving them loose like in the photos. This dress gives me a “Kate Middleton attending Wimbledon” vibe — and I don’t know about you, but I’d like to be putting those vibes out into the universe. It’s $129 full price at Ann Taylor (but be on the lookout for one of their frequent sales). Striped Tie-Neck Shirtdress

Two plus-size options are at Talbots (on sale — and available in all size ranges) and Bloomingdale’s.

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Dillon Classic-Fit Elephant Print Washable Silk Shirt

Banana Republic seems to be making an effort to offer machine-washable clothing, and I am here for it. This is a washable silk shirt, which I don’t see too often. I like the drape of it, and the site describes the shirt as “skims your shape.” My favorite part, however, is that upon first glance, the pattern looks like a black-and-white houndstooth, but when you zoom in closer, you see that the pattern is actually little elephants joining together with their trunks. I think whoever looks close enough at the shirt to notice will definitely offer up a compliment — I know I would if I saw someone wearing it! The shirt is $98 and comes in sizes XXS–XXL. Dillon Classic-Fit Elephant Print Washable Silk Shirt

Talbots has a plus-size option that’s also available in misses and petites.

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Pointelle Polo

I went to college in the South. Technically it was the “mid-Atlantic” region, but south of the Mason-Dixon line. (If I reveal which state, I’m sure there will be a debate about whether this is really “the South” — anyone want to take a guess?) Needless to say, I wore a lot of pastel polo shirts during that time in my life, and they still have a soft spot in my heart. I really like this pointelle polo shirt from Zara. It looks like a good early fall transition shirt, and the khaki and eggplant colors are deep jewel tones. I also like that this has a polo collar, but is more fashion-y. No little-man-on-a-horse logo required. The shirt is $25.90 at Zara and comes in sizes S, M, and L. Pointelle Polo

For plus sizes, Talbots has a pointelle sweater that’s on sale for $49.50, is machine washable, comes in four size ranges, and is available in five colors; Macy’s has a pointelle cardigan that comes in 0X–3X, but note that it’s hand wash only.

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Plush-Knit Long-Line Open-Front Sweater

I really like this long sweater from Old Navy. I think it hits a good spot between being on the longer side but still looking tailored enough to be professional. In my opinion, some long cardigans can drift over to bathrobe territory, but this one has enough detailing (ribbed bottom, square pockets) to keep it from going there. I like that the edges are a little fuzzy and the shape makes it look higher-end. My preference is the camel, and I’d pair it with black and a leopard print shoe for fun, but I even like how it’s styled on the site with a shoe in the same color family but a different shade. The sweater is $39.99 at Old Navy — currently 40% off — and is also available in black, mushroom, white/gray marl, and “Icelandic mineral” in regular sizes XS–XXL and plus sizes, too. Plush-Knit Long-Line Open-Front Sweater (That’s a lot of hyphens!)

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Slim Perfect Bodysuit in Chambray

Hmm, OK, hear me out on this one. I am a big fan of the tucked-in shirt. In the mid-2000s when fashion belts were hugely in style, I was in heaven. Granted, this style definitely worked better for my pre-childbearing figure, but it still has a special place in my heart. All this is to say, I wish more companies would offer a button-down shirt in a bodysuit style. I can see how it could be tough to get the fit right so that the tuck looks neat, but I love the concept. I like how this particular version from J.Crew is chambray, collarless, and has long cuffs to make it a little less conservative. I would style it with my favorite pair of black work pants, colorful earrings, and of course, a belt. It’s on sale for $29.99, marked down from $78. Slim Perfect Bodysuit in Chambray

Washable Workwear Wednesday: Sweatshirt Blazer

One of my ultimate Marshalls finds was my gray sweatshirt blazer. I wish I had multiples of it, but alas, that is the downside of discount shopping. However, I came across this blazer that I think will make a great (albeit more expensive) replacement for when I have to retire my current one. I love having a sweatshirt blazer for those days when you just can’t deal with the thought of your shoulders being constrained all day, or even when you want to dress up a pair of jeans but still want to be comfortable. I love how this one, like my current blazer, is a light heathered gray — it matches almost everything. I wish the price were better (it’s $128 at Anthropologie), but I think my cost per wear for a blazer like this would be about one cent! Sweatshirt Blazer

Nordstrom has a lower-priced option that’s available in regular, petite, and plus sizes.
