A woman wearing a white puff-sleeve top, tan belt, and coral skirt

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

A crisp white top is a must for spring. This cotton blouse from J.Crew Factory has a slightly puffed sleeve and some decorative shirring for a not-too-basic look. I’ll be wearing this with a bright midi skirt for casual Fridays or layered under a colorful blazer for a more formal spring look.

The top is $29.50–39.50 at J.Crew Factory and comes in classic sizes XXS–3X and petite sizes XXS–L. It also comes in four other spring patterns.

Psst: Hunting for opaque white t-shirts for work? As of 2023, we’d suggest checking the double layer lines from Boden, Express, and Hobbs, as well as great sources for basic Pima cotton such as LL Bean, Uniqlo, Everlane, and Talbots. (This $268 tee also gets great reviews for opacity, and Elizabeth swears by this tee under $30!)

As of 2023, the best spots to check for nude-for-you undergarments are Gap, Old Navy, or Nubian Skin for tons of options – Victoria’s Secret also has a bunch!
