Cyber Monday: In search of work shirts

I got a request to post some good shirts that go under blazers–a topic that I think is always a problem for me (I’ve already ranted about it here). In the spirit of Cyber Monday, here are some nice work shirts at good prices!


Shawl color shell by Ann Taylor (which is 50% off everything through Monday, $30)

This top fits most of my requirements–short sleeved (so you don’t get too hot), no buttons (=no gaping shirt situations), long enough not to ride up when it’s tucked in. The light grey would break up a black or navy suit nicely.


Floral wrap blouse by Loft, also in sizes 16-26 (50% off plus free shipping through Monday, $27)

A wrap blouse looks good under a blazer and alone with dress pants untucked. The small print means it could bring different colored pants and jackets together, too–you could do black pants with a teal or purple blazer ($24, below), for example. 


Green sweater tank by Madewell (25% off through Monday, $34).

A sweater tank is a nice way to add texture, get a shirt that can also be worn on weekends, and look cozy without being overheated under a blazer. 


Roll tab tunic by Nordstrom (60% off select items through Monday, $25).

All the polish of a button up, drapey for nice tucking in, and $25? I’ll take this in red, blush, mustard, navy….


Tie neck blouse by H&M (30% off through Monday plus free shipping, $20) 

A tie neck blouse can look great with unbuttoned blazers, and minimizes the need for accessories. 

Happy shopping and wishlisting. If there are any other categories of items you want me to track down, please ask!
