7 Party Blouses Under-$75

Dec 4, 2018

What is a “party blouse?”  It’s a blouse in a fun fabric or cool print that can be worn to work or to a holiday party.  Essentially, you lose the blazer/cardigan, add some statement jewelry, smear on more eyeliner and a little lipstick, and voila!  Party blouse becomes party outfit.

      Most of my old going out tops aren’t work appropriate. But that is a throwback.

      That makes me think of this article from the Cut a few years back,
      “Khaleesi Is the Queen of Going-Out Tops.” Highly recommend for a quick laugh!

      A excerpt caption for a photo of Khaleesi in a super not work appropriate going out top look:
      “Khaleesi at her first-ever office holiday party. For her company’s holiday party, Khaleesi adapted a going-out top to serve as “day-to-night” attire. With this festive gold detailing, it’s like Khaleesi herself is an ornament on a tree — but she has a blazer she can wear over it to keep things “office-appropriate.”

    I haven’t heard “going out tops” in a long time! These are all lovely and several notches above the ubiquitous camis and halters that dominated my “going out” wardrobe in college. Ah, misguided youth.

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
