Machine-Washable Work Clothes

Looking for machine-washable work clothes? Every Wednesday we include a wear-it-to-work recommendation that is machine washable -- you can see our most recent picks below. Don't miss some of our bigger articles on this topic, though, including:

Washable Wednesday: Silk Legacy Blouse

Ann Taylor Silk Legacy Blouse | CorporetteMomsThere are a TON of glowing reviews for this lovely silk blouse — it’s perfect for work! It has a nice weight (not too thin, but not too thick). It’s the perfect interview shirt! Sadly no one talks about whether it actually is machine washable without becoming a wrinkly mess, but then again my ironing skills leave something to be desired. The blouse is on a great deal: was $119, now marked to $99, and get an additional 60% off. It’s available in three colors, regular and petite sizes. Ann Taylor Silk Legacy Blouse

(Ladies, do you own this blouse — how is the care? Is something that requires ironing a deal breaker for you for Washable Wednesday? Do tell.)


Washable Wednesday: Pattern Knit Ponté Welt Pocket Sheath Dress

Lands' End Pattern Knit Ponté Welt Pocket Sheath Dress | CorporetteI’m glad to see that Lands’ End has created a sleeved version of their popular Welt Pocket Sheath. It’s a bummer it only comes in one pattern, but I happen to think the navy/blue floral combo is lovely. The dress was $89, but is now marked to $45 — it’s available in regular, petite, and plus sizes. Pattern Knit Ponté Welt Pocket Sheath Dress

Washable Wednesday: Straight Leg Ponte Pants

Eileen Fisher Straight Leg Ponte PantsThe Nordstrom Clearance Sale has started, and there are some great pieces. This morning’s washable find: these highly rated ponte pants from Eileen Fisher. The bad news here is that there are very limited sizes, unless you’re a petite — but there’s a highly rated pencil skirt and slim pants, both machine washable as well. The pictured pants are $208 (not part of the sale, alas), but the pencil skirt is 40% off and the slimmer pants are 50% off. Eileen Fisher Straight Leg Ponte Pants

I’ll be doing a roundup for general workwear picks on Corporette later today — but note that Nordstrom clearance sales are a great time to stock up on shoes for the littles. (I think this sale was historically focused on the men’s sale — and indeed they have a TON of men’s stuff 50% off and higher.)


Washable Wednesday: Drape Front V-Neck Top

Three Dots Drape Front V Neck Top Neiman Marcus is having some crazy sales right now — lots of nice brands marked down to mall store prices. This draped V-neck top doesn’t explicitly say it’s machine washable, but I’d be shocked if it weren’t — all of my Three Dots jersey pieces are. They’re soft and just a bit more lux than regular jersey. I like the two colors it’s offered in (plum and black), and I like the sale: the blouse was $98, but is now marked to $32.

Update: Note the crazy flash sale at Carter’s, with an extra 40% off clearance prices. I just bought a few things for the boys and had that rare thought right after I did the final click on the order: I shoulda bought more.

Washable Wednesday: Straight Leg Trousers

NYDJ Stretch Straight Leg TrousersLadies, what are your favorite brands for washable trousers? I always used to like the Gap washable trousers, but online the reviews suggest that they’re really hit or miss of late. These NYDJ stretch trousers are very highly rated, but mostly by older women — but then that is their demographic (NYDJ does stand for “not your daughter’s jeans,” after all). They’re $120, and were available in three colors but are sold out in everything except the black, which I take as a good sign. They’re available in regular sizes 0-14, and petite sizes 00P-18P.

Maternity Monday: Slash Neck Skater Dress with Belt

ASOS Maternity Slash Neck Skater Dress with Belt | CorporetteI’ve long admired this simple maternity dress from ASOS — it looks grown up and flattering, but fun and versatile. And the fact that it’s $53.06 doesn’t hurt. The black seems to be sold out right now, but it’s still available in this light blue/orange belt combo, as well as a rust orange/cobalt belt combo. It’s $53.06. ASOS Maternity Slash Neck Skater Dress with Belt

(Actually: it comes in a lot of colors, as well as different sleeve styles, some marked as low as $17.  Nice!)
