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

This short-sleeved dress from Quince looks like a great summer basic at a fantastic price. I know cap sleeves aren’t for everyone, but I find them to be one of the better options for wearing under a jacket or sweater.

I would pair the ecru dress with an olive blazer for a spring-y look, but it also comes in your classic black, charcoal, and navy if you’re looking for something a little more traditional. 

The dress is $49.90 at Quince and comes in sizes XS–XL.

A plus-size alternative in a slightly darker shade comes from Spanx (also available in straight sizes) — it’s $138.
