Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
While the secretary blouse (also called, sigh, the pussy-bow blouse) trend continues to go strong, I’m loving the simpler split-neck blouses we’re starting to see, such as this J.Crew one. They strike me as less fussy than a silk collar, but more easily layered (such as with a blazer or cardigan, or even a contrasting cardigan if the V is deep enough) than the silk bows. I even like the pale pink color of this (“mauve”), but it’s also available in royal indigo and “natural” (beige). Sizes and colors are flying off the shelves — here’s hoping they restock soon. It’s $178 at J.Crew. Pleated silk crepe blouse
