Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Are you looking for a white blouse that’s anything but basic? This smocked neck top from Alice + Olivia has vegan leather sleeves that look much more sophisticated than I would have guessed, based on the description.
I would wear this with high-waisted denim for a chic look in a casual office or paired with my favorite blazer for a real power look.
The top is $375 at Neiman Marcus and comes in sizes XS–XL.
Hunting for other feminine blouses? General brands to look at include CeCe, 1.State, and Sézanne (very affordable!), as well as L’Agence, Rebecca Taylor, Ted Baker, Club Monaco, Alice & Olivia, ASTR the Label, and Anne Fontaine.
