The Range: Wrap Tops for Work

Jan 15, 2019

I’m living the uncomfortable life of being a women between two sizes.  I’ve been sedentary for a few months (plus the holidays), so I think the weight will come off without much effort and I won’t need to replace my whole wardrobe.  But until I’ve climbed the stairs to my office a few hundred more times, I need clothes with some give.

Enter wrap tops.  Chic, and adjustable.  Praise be.

Maje Printed Crepe Top ($265)

Cubicle Farm

C/MEO Wrap Top ($170)

Front Desk

Cupcakes and Cashmere Diego Top ($88)

    The cupcakes and cashmere top’s link is to a maroon sweater, FYI.

    very nice collection. Until this post I had never considered a wrap top to get me through the post holiday middle. Thank you very much

    Also great for post-baby and pumping at work! Thanks!

    Hi Abra,

    I’m suffering the same problem of being between sizes but I’m struggling with finding bottoms that are comfortable (tight waistbands are the worst!). I’m hesitant to buy new work pants one size up if I’m actively trying to loose weight. I honestly just want to wear leggings all day every day but that’s a no go with my current job .
    Do you have any good advise on how to navigate this issue?

    • Anna says:

      Check out Loft’s brushed sateen leggings. They don’t really fit like leggings and don’t feel like sateen, so I don’t know where the name comes from, but they’re really comfy. They do stretch out, but I find that when they stretch, they just fit how I’d like work pants to fit.

    • Belle says:

      Figure out which pair of your regularly fitting pants you wear most, buy one pair one size up, and one skirt one size up, then you can have them taken in later.

    • Caitlin says:

      I like Ann Taylor’s Ponte pants, they have a lot of give, and I believe right now they are $25(!?) so if you shrink a size you can always donate or consign them for a couple bucks back.

Shoe Week: One Last Summer Shoe

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
