The Best Work Tops from Banana Republic

Jan 6, 2021

This weekend, I was packing to leave for Montana, when I realized something: I don’t own but three work blouses.  Given the glacial speed of Helena, Montana’s only dry cleaners with Saturday hours, three blouses was not going to get it done.  So in a pinch, my best in-person shopping option in Spokane was Banana Republic.

Like many retailers, Banana has pivoted to loungewear to accommodate the tastes of people trying to dress in a pandemic.  But, with a little searching, I was able to find a few tops that will coordinate with other business attire that I already own.  Many of these pieces also come in petite and tall and run from XXS to XXL.

There’s a delicate ruffle on the neck of this top that looks nice under a crewneck cardigan.

The photo of this top does not do it justice.  There are white dots on a sheer black material and little velvet dots as well.  And it is a special, special blouse for work or day-to-night.

This tie neck top is only available in petite online, but it’s available in stores in misses as well.  Just a nice, simple basic.

In person, the fabric on this half-placket top is a heavy, opaque Tencel.  It has a thickness to it that surprised me, since so many things are extra thin today.

I picked an animal print top, shocking! Or not at all.  It’s a fun alternative to dots.

Short, Dolman sleeves are a nice alternative to sleeveless.  This top gives you a little more coverage without the bulk.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
