Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
If you’ve spent time working in male-dominated industries, you’ve probably been to a lot of events where the unspoken dress code for attendees is “polo shirt and khakis.” Personally, I’ve never found polo shirts to be that flattering on me, so I’m always on the lookout for something that’s roughly equivalent.
This sweater polo from Banana Republic would be perfect for those very casual business-casual events. I would wear this rust orange color with a pair of gray or navy ankle pants and a pair of loafers for an easy, comfy outfit for those conferences, trade shows, or networking happy hours.
The sweater is $95 and comes in sizes XXS–XXL. It also comes in black and white.
A plus-size option is from Reformation; it’s 90% recycled cashmere and available in two colors in 1X–3X (lucky sizes) for $148.
