    Find the Perfect White Blouse in your Size

    I was so inspired by the white blouse we showed from Charles Tyrwhitt this morning, I searched out a few more in different size ranges. As you know, basics are a key building block of your work wardrobe. A white blouse is at the top of our list. Since it’s practically summer, we think it’s time to pick up a style that’s a little less basic. Each of these pieces will still achieve the polished finish of your classic long sleeve style, but feel fresh for summer.

    Macy’s selection of petites was well rounded with an amazing number of prints. Of course our hunt is for white blouses today, so we selected Alfani Petite Top, Stretch Cotton Rosette Trim BlouseINC International Concepts Petite Top, Cap Sleeve Zip Front, and Jones New York Petite Blouse, Cap Sleeve Pleated Georgette each with their own unique details.  Add a skinny belt in black or a summer pop color to the Alfani funnel neck top.

    White Pleated Cap Sleeve Top

    Lane Bryant was the perfect place to start for plus sizes. Sateen short sleeve buckle shirt has flattering shirring at the bust and buckles at the sleeve hem. We were also blown away by the Grecian draping on this Icon Collection draped woven top. A quick stop at Torrid revealed this White Pleated Cap Sleeve Top with tuxedo detailing.

    Visiting the Tall Girl Shop we found some nice blouses amongst the Long Tall Sally collection. Buttermere Blouse has embroidery details, lace hem, and back tie to create a flattering waistline. At Banana Republic, Tall eyelet bib top is 100% cotton in a flowing silhouette. We also found Banana Republic Tall 3/4 sleeve safari shirt with rolled cuffs.

    These blouses can mix and match within your wardrobe to create Workchic looks all summer long.  Here are a couple more finds in regular sizes.

    1. Thanks for the helpful post! I am long waisted and have THE. WORST. TIME. finding white blouses for work that are long enough to be tucked in without spending half the day re-tucking them. I had resigned myself to buying shirts in tunic form and shortening them when I read your post this morning! I will definitely make use of the “tall” styles mentioned here.
