9 Machine-Washable Pieces You Can Wear to Work This Summer

Because dry-clean-only styles and 85-degree commutes are not friends. In fact, they can barely be in the same room together.

By Madeleine Kim

No offense to dry cleaners, but there are many reasons to prioritize machine-washable pieces in your wardrobe. Maybe you want to lessen your environmental impact and save some money. Maybe you’re constantly spilling on yourself, and you need to be able to treat stains quickly. Or maybe you’re like me, and dealing with your to-dry-clean pile is one of those tasks you just never seem to get to.

Whatever your reasons, the solution is elevated, work-appropriate styles that you can throw in the washing machine at the end of the week. Here are nine of our favorites for summer.


The Renee Dress

Try dressing this breezy T-shirt dress up with a belt, heeled sandals, and a machine-washable blazer.


The Monica Top

A top so elegant, nobody will believe it’s machine-washable. Plus, did you know that fade-proof silk knits are super rare?


The Rory Cardigan

A classic cardigan, but cooler—literally and figuratively.


The Annette Top and Adina Shorts

Because it’s 2022, and we’re giving you permission to wear shorts to the office.


The Constance Dress

The platonic ideal of a versatile work dress.


The Peggy Top

When you’re in the mood to wear a sweater, but it’s 80 degrees, reach for this knit tank instead.


The Foster Pants

Our best-selling pants in our best-selling jewel tone. Need we say more?


The Moreland Jacket and Colby Pants

Breathable, packable pieces you can wear as a complete suit or paired with other styles in your wardrobe.


The Mori Henley

To wear under your blazers when you’re tired of classic T-shirts and button-downs.
