Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
St. John is one of those brands that I always associate with well-heeled ladies of a certain age. Their selections are usually more timeless than trendy and this cerulean blouse is no exception.
I like the look of a blousy bow peeking out from behind a blazer to make a suit look a bit more feminine. I would also love this worn tucked into a pencil skirt or over a pair of slim-fitting pants.
I always like the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for bringing some of these higher-end brands down into the realm of reasonableness, pricewise. The blouse is $296, marked down from $495, and available in sizes P–XL. Tie-Neck Stretch-Silk Crêpe de Chine Shell
