Ask Belle: Blouses with Sleeves for Work

Mar 18, 2015

Hi Belle,

My daily uniform is a pencil skirt and blouse, maybe a cardigan if it’s cold.  I need some new blouses for spring.  I have black and white covered, so I’d love some prints or different colors.  Looking in the intern to poor staffer pricer range.

Oh, I love long sleeve blouses.  I wear them all year-round, so it’s always nice to have a reason to window shop for them.  Here are a few options in colors and prints, as requested.

Solid Colors

DKNYC Reflection Stripe ($79)

Plus-size? For bright colors, try this Sejour split-neck blouse or this NYDJ patterned blouse.  Looking for prints? I like the ‘broken photo’ print on this Vince Camuto top.  This DKNYC mixed media blouse is cool, as is the soft, dot-print on this Caslon blouse.
