Figuring out what to wear to work shouldn’t be a bore. To make your weekdays easier, welcome to Business Casual. Every Wednesday, we’ll highlight the best office-appropriate clothes, whether it’s for the job you have or the one you want.
So you have a big interview and you’re freaking out. You already studied up on the company and your résumé has been proofread so many times, you can recite it from memory. But one look at your closet and whatever confidence you had went to shambles. Nothing feels quite right. Before you go crazy and buy an entire new outfit, take a breath. Unless your go-to blazer or favorite skirt is in complete disrepair, all you need is a new blouse to make everything feel fresh again. Whether you require a classic silk shirt worn under a suit, or you’re looking for something that’ll adequately demonstrate your creativity, scroll ahead for 11 blouses that’ll boost your confidence on the big day.
If green isn’t your color, this is another creative interview-friendly top. Just add a camisole under it — the deep V is a touch too revealing, no matter how laid-back the environment may be.
