Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
This silk blouse is one of the bestsellers at Saks, and although it looks a little boring, it’s got a classic style and kind of seems perfect in every way.
I like the pleats at the shoulders and the high, unfussy kind of neckline — it’s not too low-cut and it’ll lay properly inside of your blazer or cardigan. (This can be a great layering piece for spring, summer, and fall.)
This top is silk/elastane, available in three colors (black, navy, and creme) in sizes XS-XL, and it’s $178 at Saks and Neiman Marcus.
2018 Update: We’re adding this top to our Workwear Hall of Fame because it’s still around, coming out in new colors, and getting rave reviews. Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, and Elie Tahari have the most options, but occasionally Amazon has it as well. If you’re looking for more affordable sleeveless tops for work, check out our most recent roundup!
