The Edit: Eight Whimsical, Career Blouses Under-$100

Apr 26, 2018

Basics are great.  Classics are the foundation of your wardrobe.  But special pieces — pieces with whimsy and life and verve — those are for the days when you feel your best (or need a pick me up).  Here are eight blouses that fall into that category.

& Other Stories Tie Detail Blouse ($95)

Two things about this blouse: 1) the tie is not attached, 2) it’s a bit sheer, but the cool sleeves make it worth the camisole.

LOFT Ikat Shirred Yoke Blouse ($59, also in petite)

Modcloth Flattery Ruffled Blouse ($45, also in plus)

& Other Stories Cherry Print Blouse ($65)

Dynamite Wrap Blouse ($25)

Eloquii Embroidered Peasant Blouse ($59, also in plus-petite)

Express Tie Waist Roll Sleeve Blouse ($39, more colors)

LOFT Hummingbird Ruffle Blouse ($54)

    Love this post! My office is “fun” business casual and I’ve been looking for blouses that are dressy enough but still have some joy in them. Thanks!

    Have you bought anything from Dynamite? Curious about how sizing runs because lots of stuff looks awesome.

    I have a Jcrew Factory dress from last summer that is navy with red cherries all over it. When I ordered it, I thought it was polka dots, but the cherries really add a fun quality that I love. Any days I’m in a bad mood, I know I can wear my “cherry” dress for an immediate pick me up.

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
