Engineered Garments Mixes Sportswear, Workwear & Military Influences for Barbour Collaboration

Following on from a reissued capsule with Vans, New York-based Engineered Garments is back with another collaboration. Teaming up with BarbourDaiki Suzuki‘s label has reworked pieces from the British brands archive with influences coming from American sportswear, workwear and functional military clothing.

The capsule consists of five different outerwear silhouettes — the Cowen, Dumbo, Parka, Graham and Cape — with each one constructed from waxed black waxed cotton with detailing in navy, black and olive. Standout pieces include the oversized parka, the Dumbo — a mix between an MA-1 bomber and a varsity jacket — and the Cape, which is an updated version of a military policeman’s cape. The full collection will release at Barbour’s London flagship on August 6, with prices ranging from £349 to £599 (approx. $ 460 USD to $ 795 USD).

The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale: The Best Workwear for Women in the 2018 Sale

nordstrom half-yearly sale for women 2018I’ve been getting sale alerts for days, and it finally occurred to me: the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale is here! (It officially started this morning, but they started marking things down a day or two ago.) The dresses for work are the main attraction, I think — SO MANY GOOD ONES UNDER $ 100! — but there are also a bunch of nice blazers on sale. Specific brands of note: there’s lots to love in the sale from Hugo Boss, Boden (!), Tahari, HalogenTheory, Equipment, DvF, Kate Spade New York, and Lewit. Some of these finds may be a little party focused, but if you’re on the hunt or have a very feminine style they sales may be for you: Ted Baker, Maggy London, Adrianna Pappell, and Eliza J.

Good deals on underthings from NatoriHanky Panky, Chantelle, and Spanx – and great deals on workout items from Zella and Beyond Yoga.

One important note: things are selling out quickly in the sale — so if you find something you really like that’s in stock and in your size, you may want to check out quickly rather than let it sit for an hour (or day or two). I inevitably shop for myself while I’m doing these sale roundups and heard sad trombones a few times when things I wanted sold out while they were sitting in my shopping cart, so I just made a few smaller orders instead of one big one.

Anything we’ve previously featured that is now on sale (and still in stock) is tagged here.

Some particular picks for workwear from the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale of 2018, after the jump…

9 Fresh New Labels for Workwear

new labels for workwearOne of our most popular posts a few years ago was our roundup of 30 workwear fashion start-ups and independent brands — so I asked Rebecca Berfanger to update the list with nine fresh new labels for workwear! Here are 9 more office fashion stores every working woman should know about! – Kat

While we all have our go-to stores for workwear, they’re often the same stores your work friends have — particularly if there’s an Ann Taylor or Banana Republic near your office. So it doesn’t hurt to seek out workwear stores off the beaten path to spruce up the daily wardrobe, particularly when it comes to office clothes! Whether you want a more curated wardrobe, a custom-made skirt, a longer lasting and more classic style, or even just a button-down shirt that will actually fit, these 10 fashion start ups with internet-friendly shopping options will inspire you to at least consider your next fashion purchase, even if you might need to wait until payday.

Cuyana

Collage photo links: one / two / three

Embracing their “fewer, better” philosophy, the women behind Cuyana offer high quality classic pieces—lightweight Italian wool skirts, crepe de chine silk tops and dresses, Italian cotton cashmere silk sweaters—inspired by the their love of travel, and a desire to have a lean closet. In fact, if you buy with the “lean shipping” option, you’ll receive a bag to send them your gently used clothes and get $ 10 off your next purchase. Prices range from $ 135-$ 250 for tops, $ 95 for shorts, $ 195 for skirts, $ 95 to $ 315 for dresses.

La Ligne New York

Collage photo links: one / two / three

Inspired by the ever-classic stripe, former American Vogue editors Meredith Melling and Valerie Boster along with Rag & Bone alumna Molly Howard founded La Ligne New York. They offer a mix of staples and statement pieces fit for the office or a more casual (or less casual) setting. You can also check out hand-written profiles of some of their fans, including Mindy Kaling, Allison Williams, Nicole Richie, and Olivia Wilde on their website. Prices range from $ 85-$ 345 for tops, $ 195-$ 350 for bottoms, $ 300-$ 500 for dresses and caftans, and $ 295-$ 875 for outerwear.

Laveer

Collage photo links: one / two / three

If your office allows for a little more of a rock-n-roll style—perhaps you work for a boutique firm for musicians and artists—or just want to dress like you do, Laveer has you covered. Former Shopbop fashion director Kate Ciepluch started the company in 2012 to help women find more tailored pieces. Even if cropped flare pants and bustier-style button-up and snap-up vests aren’t quite en vogue in your workplace, Laveer offers a variety of styles of blazers, including its most popular military-style Kadette, to jazz up your wardrobe. Price range from $ 495-$ 546 for blazers, $ 282 for cropped flare pants, and $ 295 for button-up bustiers.

Maven Women

Collage photo links: one / two / three

Following her work as a labor and employment lawyer and later at a nonprofit with a focus on global issues and modern day slavery, Rebecca Ballard founded Maven Women, a clothing company that is in line with her own values. To start, fair trade, eco-conscious, artisanal clothing company Mehera Shaw in India manufactures the dresses out of 100% organic Indian cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard. You can also vote on the styles you’d like to see them offer next. Prices: The Amira and Sarah dresses, available in twilight, sapphire, and currant, are available for $ 200. Keep an eye on their website for presales and sample sales.

Ministry of Supply

Collage photo links: one / two / three

After its founders met at MIT, Ministry of Supply was born as a clothing company based around breathable and functional yet office-appropriate fabric and style. Their Easier Than Silk and Luxe fabric tops are wrinkle-free and washable, their Structure Your Day pants offer enough stretch that they feel like yoga pants without looking like you just left the gym, and their seamless blazer is “printed” using WHOLEGARMENT technology in New Jersey. Prices range from $ 45-85 for tops, $ 105 for pants, and $ 285 for blazers.

Modern Citizen

Collage photo links: one / two / three

With a similar aesthetic to Gap brands—wardrobe staples in mostly neutral solids and stripes—Modern Citizen was founded by Gap alum Jess Lee. Also based in San Francisco, the fairly new fast fashion brand posts new items on the site every three to five weeks. The website is organized by Weekend, Work, and Evening, to help you sort through what exactly you are shopping for. With the exception of a handbag, all clothing and accessories are priced under $ 200.

 

Rita Phil Custom Fashion

Collage photo links: one / two / three

Named for the lead characters in Groundhog Day, Rita Phil Custom Fashion offers a solution to always saying the same thing every day: “I have a full closet, but I have nothing to wear.” Provide your measurements and preferences in terms of fit and fabric, even the length and lining, and Rita Phil does the rest to help you through your existential crisis, at least when it comes to your skirt options. They also offer a video chat and a crazy good return policy if customers aren’t 100 percent satisfied. Prices range from $ 99-$ 180. (BuzzFeed’s Kristin Chirico also endorsed these custom skirts.)

Senza Tempo

 

Collage photo links: one / two / three

A worthwhile splurge, Senza Tempo, or “timeless” in Italian, is meant to be a staple in your wardrobe for years and not just for a season. It is inspired by the elegance of leading ladies in classic films such as Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, and Grace Kelly. In other words, it’s feminine by not too girly, classic yet modern, sophisticated and sexy. Plus, everything is manufactured in downtown L.A. Prices range from $ 150-$ 450 for tops, $ 450 for skirts, and $ 625 to $ 950 for dresses.

Thirteen Seven

Collage photo links: one / two / three

We’ve all been there. Getting ready in the morning only to learn your favorite button up blouse just doesn’t want to keep you modest that day. Thirteen Seven has engineered a shirt with reverse buttons to prevent what the company calls the dreaded “boob gape.” Available in dusty blush, matte olive, and the classic paper white, the shirts are machine washable and made of Japanese combed 100% cotton. All shirts are listed at $ 148.

The Underrated Workwear Piece You Should Always Have on Hand

We talk a lot about hero pieces. You know the ones; they singlehandedly make any outfit a seriously good one and they never fail to make you feel at your best, even when you just happen to throw them on and go. For us, shirtdresses are the one-and-done answer to our 9-to-5 lives. We count on them constantly to make us look polished (even when we don’t feel it) and professional (even when we’d rather be wearing jeans). They can be the simplest to style, whether with pumps or over pants for a more forward take. What about shirt dresses for winter? You’ll find a few inventive layering tricks in here, too.

With a bright handbag and a fun pair of mules, this look is proving the shirtdress can go much, much farther than the office.
As we mused before, the power of a shirtdress lies in its versatility. This look couldn’t illustrate better the simplicity in wearing it by itself.
If you work in a more casual office setting or a creative role, this look is for you. The dress makes her denim duster feel polished and her white shoes freshen up the whole outfit.
Try layering your sweaterdresses over your shirt dresses this winter for some extra warmth.
The street style set is teaching us all sorts of lessons on making the dress the coolest thing in your closet. Hint: It involves bold accessories and the fashion-favorite dress-over-pants combo.
Simple never has to mean lackluster. When you have really solid classic pieces, a shirtdress achieves an elevated look.
This winter, everyone seems to be layering their plain turtlenecks underneath more summery items, and we’re actually so into the “nerdy” styling trick.
In some instances, wearing a shirtdress over jeans really can be too casual. In this case, try opting for tailored trousers or fashion leggings with the work staple.
Or do wear them with jeans, but let your shoes and bag be the polished pieces that tie the look together.
Contemporary designers are re-thinking the traditional shirtdress, testing out wrap dress styles and deconstructed tailoring. Wear over crisp trousers for a forward look.
Ground a flowing shirtdress in the winter months with a puffer coat and your go-to denim.
This look is all the proof we need that a simple pair of heels can finish off a shirtdress outfit.
Try this outfit next time you need to freshen up your warm-weather dresses: a dress over jeans with pretty slides.
Swap out your classic pumps for a sultry lace-up pair and voilà, you’re ready for date night.

Following up on its collaborative collection alongside Burton revealed last month, NEIGHBORHOOD starts 2018 strong by unveiling images of its upcoming spring/summer range. The streetwear imprint incorporates military, heritage workwear and sportswear elements throughout — creating a lineup as diverse and functional as is stylish.

Lightweight outerwear plays a pivotal role, as bombers, field jackets, chore coats, coach silhouettes, denim trucker styles, amongst others, come to the forefront. Although design details remain subtle, typography, patchwork, and prints surface now and again, not to mention a small capsule from the brand’s Specimen Research Laboratory line. The collection will be arriving at select retailers in the coming weeks. Visit NEIGHBORHOOD’s website for a comprehensive look at the collection.

Nordstrom Thanksgiving Sale: Workwear Picks

nordstrom thanksgiving sale 2017I’ve been a busy bee going through the early Nordstrom Thanksgiving sale all day! Note that they’ve kind of got two sales going on right now: one is the big designer clearance sale they always have around this time of year, and the second is early markdowns hitting the racks in anticipation of their usual Thanksgiving sale — with TONS of workwear under $ 100.  On the designer side of things, I’m noticing a lot of sale items for Manolo Blahnik, Chloé, Max MaraAkris punto, Prada and more — and on the regular side of things, lots of good deals on J.Crew, Lafayette 148 New York, Kate Spade New York, Nic + ZoeAGLStuart Weitzman, and Tahari. Note that there are also lots of good deals on beauty, including on Urban Decay (some up to 50% off!), MAC, Philosophy, and Bobbi Brown — and of course some great deals on lingerie including NatoriChantelle, Hanky Panky, Yummie Tummie, and more. I’ll have to save the shoes and accessories in the Nordstrom Thanksgiving sale for another post — stay tuned!

Comfortable Workwear for Late Nights

Comfortable Workwear for Late Nights at the OfficeReader A wrote in with a great question that we haven’t talked about in a few years: What is the most comfortable workwear for late nights at the office? Here’s her question:

I’m starting my first biglaw job at a business formal law firm in NYC and would love to see a post about “comfortable” workwear, especially for late nights and weekends. For example, I bought the Betabrand dress yoga pants and am a big fan. I’m curious to hear about particular fabrics or brands known for being less constricting/more “cozy”. I would love to hear thoughts as to HOW casual is appropriate for late nights (e.g. can I change into leggings and a cardigan at 1am?)

Great question. We talked about working late and professional clothes before, what comfy clothes to keep at the office, and what to wear for a weekend in the office — but it’s been a while. Readers just had a great threadjack about super comfortable work clothes, as well, so let’s discuss.

My default rules, at least when I was junior, were that a) as soon as my secretary left for the day, I could get more comfortable, whether that was to take off heels and happily pad to the printer in flip flops if I needed something, or to take off skirts or dresses entirely and put on yoga pants and a black t-shirt. A couple of points that should probably be noted: a) my office culture was one of a lot of closed doors, so it really was just trips to the printer or the bathroom where I might run into colleagues, and b) everything I changed into was black, opaque stuff — no crazy patterns or mesh cutouts. This isn’t to say that you CAN’T wear that stuff, just that when selecting the default stuff you keep at the office, maybe choose the conservative option. It’s probably also worth noting that I didn’t change into more comfortable clothes every night at work, because I didn’t consider every outfit to be so uncomfortable that I needed to get out of it, and there were definitely differences between nights when I knew I had 6 hours ahead of me of document-intensive work and would need to stretch out on my office floor surrounded by piles of paper and highlighters and notes; regular nights where I thought I could get out by 8 or 9, or was meeting friends afterwards; and nights where I was working in conference rooms with other people or running around and managing other teams where it just didn’t occur to me to go put my comfy pants on.

As for WHAT to wear, I think these days you have a lot of options in addition to the classic yoga pants, from pull-on ponte pants that might be comfortable and appropriate enough to wear all day (readers were just singing the praises of these Lands’ End ones as their “holy grail ponte pants,” as well as NYDJ ones*), to more traditional leggings (I’m a big fan of the Hue leggings* for opacity, durability, comfort, price, etc.), to comfortable jeans/jeggings. (I also have the readers to thank for turning me onto the pull-on JAG jeans*.) Know your office, but I think the conservative take on “I might be going to or coming from the gym” might also work for weekends or late nights — by “conservative take” I don’t mean sports bra + running shorts or “strappy sexy yoga bra + leggings with daring mesh cutouts” — but again, know your office. (I say “daring mesh cutouts” because there are definitely some that seem more… well, daring… but obviously it’s hard to find workout leggings without mesh cutouts of some kind these days.)

Over to you, readers: What do you consider to be comfortable workwear for late nights? What do you think is off-limits — and what factors would influence your decision to change or not change on a particular night? (Slightly off topic, BUT two more Qs: a) what’s your opinion on mesh cutouts/gym looks, and b) do you think it’s ever acceptable to put on a “comfy bra”? The closest I have in my closet to an “18-hour bra” right now is the shorter version* of this one, so I might choose that one at the beginning of the day.)

What is comfortable workwear for late nights at the office? Can you change into leggings after 8PM, should you wear comfortable clothes at the start of the day, or should you just tough it out in your sheath dress and Spanx? We've got some thoughts...
