The Find: A Work Dress for All Seasons

Jul 11, 2019

It’s mid-July, so it’s time to start thinking about clothing you can wear into the fall.  And nowhere is the summer-to-fall transition more important than in your work wardrobe.

This T Tahari Tonya dress ($118) has a pleated shoulder and a flattering v-neckline.  It comes in navy or black (or both).  And the reviews for this dress gush about the flattering cut and the versatility.

For work in summer, I would pair either color with a white blazer and coordinating pump.  I like this notch-collar open-front Calvin Klein blazer for under-$50.  For work in the fall, I’d go for a long black jacket (for either color), tights and ankle boots.

Plus-size?  Try this Calvin Klein dress.  Petite?  This Kasper v-neck is a nice option.

    Thanks for including petites in the recommendations once more – much appreciated by those of us who are vertically challenged…

    I have this dress. I bought it with the coordinating jacket, last-minute, for a job interview two years ago. Didn’t get the job but still love the dress.

      I have 2 Tahari dresses and find them way too short for work (I’m 5’8 and they show, like, 4 inches of thigh). What’s the length like on this dress?

    I own this dress and love it. It’s too dressy for my casual office, but I save it for events, occasions and meetings and always feel my best in it and get a compliment.

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
