8 Pretty, Silky Blouses for Under $100

Getting dressed for work shouldn’t be a bore. Welcome to Business Casual— here to make your weekdays easier.

Fall is full of pleasing textures: nubby wool coats, soft cashmere sweaters, buttery leather jackets. In that rotation should be a silky top, too. In colors like bright pink, red, or aqua, a delicate top will perk up your mood as the days grow shorter and sunshine becomes more limited. Wear one under a blazer now, then add more layers once the temperature drops. The best part? You can get one for well under $100. Shop our favorites below.
