Embroidered Placket Blouse ($79 + 40%-off)

I love placket blouses for work.  They’re versatile enough to wear to the office or with weekend attire.  They mix the professionalism of a button-up with the femininity of a blouse.  And this one has a really unique detail on the placket to give it a little something extra.

These Everlane blouses are perfect for the office and come in lovely colors.  This Asos blouse has a pleated front that’s very interesting.  If you like prints, this animal print blouse from Billabong is chic and this Jones New York top has a very Tory Burch look to it.

Prefer something sleeveless or with short sleeves?  This Mossimo blouse has a stylish mix of neutral colors, and this French Connection blouse has a sheer yoke.

Plus-size?  This Anne Klein blouse has a great casual look to it, it would be nice with white denim.  Petite?  In addition to the Ann Taylor blouse above, this J.Crew popover would be nice for the weekends.

    I love silk/placket blouses and am wearing one today with jeans for casual Friday! This one may be arriving at my doorstep shortly–it’s a style I can’t get enough of right now because as you mentioned, they are SO versatile.

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.
