When it comes to women’s work shirts, the trim and tailored white button-down is known to clock some major mileage. As a neutral staple, it makes dressing for the office as easy as grab and go. We gravitate towards the basics for their endless mix and match value, but it’s also easy to get stuck in a uniform rut that way.
The truth is, there are tons of small variations just as effortless and interchangeable as our tried-and-true go-to. The problem is, sometimes, we’re just too busy or stuck in our ways to notice the incredible alternatives. who wants to be worrying about what to wear to work once you’re finally home for the day or enjoying a well-deserved weekend?
The small shift in updating your work wear can have big advantages, though. maybe a easy wardrobe change can be just the mid-week pick-me-up you need. Or maybe a little attention to help you stand out for that new position could be good. We’re here to give you a handful of options that offer the same ease as your trusty white work shirt — with just a little twist to help you shine in the break room and beyond.
Women’s work Shirts: 5 We Love
The Poplin Shirt
Striped Shirred Popover Shirt, $23.99, GAP
When you minimize or eliminate the button front altogether, the poplin is an updated alternative to the silhouette you’re used to. look for a mandarin collar, pin-tucked bib front or other details that help differentiate this t-shirt from your conventional version.
Donna Karan Long Sleeve Tunic, $47.25 (on sale), Last Call
Play with the proportions of your work attire by teaming a slim trouser with a little bit longer length on top. Tunics offer a little bit much more comfort, with the same amount of polish.
The Wrap Front Top
Buttoned Front Surplice wrap Striped Top, $13, SHEIN
Wrap silhouettes can be a terrific way to change up your shape in a very chic way. pair with a pencil skirt or slim-cut trousers.
The Boxy Linen Top
Bell-Sleeve Striped Linen Shirt, $34.65 (on sale), Last Call
The natural summer alternative is a cool, linen top and this boxy iteration is an ultra-contemporary alternative to all those buttons.
The t-shirt Dress
1901 tie Waist Shirtdress, $71.04, Nordstrom
You just can’t give up the button up, can you? It’s cool, this fits the bill. extend your cuffed and collared love down the hem with an equally classic t-shirt dress. Seems like a no-brainer, but you didn’t have this in your closet already, did you?
