As most of you know, we round up all of our Hall of Famers into our Wardrobe Essentials for Work — I thought I’d take a quick run through some of the pricier wardrobe essentials for work and see if I could find some great deals today.
(Please feel free to use this post as an open thread!)

Some of our favorite office pashminas as of 2021: black / beige / gray (lighter weight) / lavender ($15!!). If you’re looking for more of a ruana jacket, I highly recommend the Brooks Brothers’ ones!
- pink (far left) – Lots of their “pure cashmere wraps” are down from $170 to $84.50 — and go towards the $50 off every $200 offer.
- blue (far right) – MANY ruanas are included in the Brooks Brothers sale from $598 to $299 – this is a great deal. If you have a hard to fit woman in your life this is great; I’d say it works anywhere from size S-3X. It’s more of a coat, though; very heavy and elegant.
