Item of the Week: The Fun Work Blouse

Nov 7, 2017

Work attire can be boring.  So boring.  Every woman needs a few fun work blouses to make it less boring.

Perhaps, fun is the wrong word.  Interesting.  Different.  Unique.  Regardless of what you call them, you should be excited to wear them.

This lace, tie-collar blouse from H&M comes in at an affordable $35.  I also like this H&M puff-sleeve blouse with delicate gold accents.  If you like small prints, this & Other Stories blouse has a lovely one.  Or go for a big print, like this large polka dot blouse.

If you’re looking for fun blouses, Banana Republic has quite a few right now.  I’m loving this printed tie sleeve blouse and this satin button-sleeve shirt.  I adore this chic mock-neck blouse, but size up, because it’s a bit snug through the chest.

Specialty sizes: Plus-size ladies should check out this puff-sleeve blouse or this WHBM velvet tie blouse.  Petite ladies can try the BR blouse or this bell-sleeve blouse with ladder stitching.  Maternity?  This strawberry print blouse and this floral-applique blouse are both fun.

    This post came at the best time. I was about to email you and ask for some good blouse inspiration. I could not a ton at a decent price point that were fashionable and well made without doing some digging.

    Any other brands or websites that you recommend (in general). I know you love Boden but other than that?

    Thanks for the maternity piece! Please do more!

    It’s hard to tell — is that lace white H&M top lined or would you need a tank underneath?

    Totally agree that an interesting top can make all the difference in avoiding a ho-hum work outfit! I’m also loving this J.Crew ruffle blouse in red: https://www.jcrew.com/p/womens_category/shirtsandtops/sleeved/tiered-bellsleeve-top-in-drapey-crepe/H2197?color_name=black

    Just wait until it inevitably goes on sale…

    Apologies if you’ve already covered this in a previous post, but can you please recommend a good, budget-friendly camisole to wear under light/sheer blouses? I bought a pretty BR blouse at your recommendation a few months ago and need a good camisole to wear underneath it. Thanks!

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
