Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Cotton-Coated Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Want to try a fun experiment? Go to any department store website and do a search for clothing tagged as “workwear.” If you had a suspicion that no one knows what to wear to work anymore, your hunch would be confirmed. One silver lining to this sartorial confusion is that many of us have a bit more leeway in what we’re wearing to the office.

Three years ago, I probably would have skipped right over this Bottega Veneta dress, which is made from a coated cotton fabric that was used as outerwear in a previous season. Now I’m thinking that it would look fabulous with a pair of mules for an easy weekday outfit.

The dress is $2,400 at Net-a-Porter and comes in Italian sizes 38–48.

A couple of options that are more affordable are from Veronica Beard (00–16, $398) and Eileen Fisher (1X–3X, $378).
