Deborah requested a few picks for lightweight, washable button-front tops, so here we go:
LOFT Paisley Softened Shirt – was $59.50, now $32.99
Extra 40% off taken when added to cart
This shirt is close to Deborah’s ideal, being a silk/cotton blend, lightweight and washable … though it is a henley style, which means it doesn’t button all the way through. Still a lovely option, though, and appropriate for all but the most conservative of workplaces. Available in sizes XXS – XXL, also in petite and tall sizes. This paisley blouse has a darker print, but is available in 1X – 3X.
Jones New York Fitted Roll-up – was $59, now $24.99
Those sleeves are cuffed pretty high, but they’re actually full-length when unrolled. This shirt has a slightly shorter length than most, which means it may work untucked with skirts for some figures. (As we learned today!) Available in this navy/white print, pale pink stripe, and pale blue stripe as well as green gingham, black gingham, and red paisley here. In sizes S – XL. This shirt comes in solids, but is also JNY, also washable, and available in 14W – 24W in four seasonal colors.
Tommy Hilfiger Floral-Print Button-Down Shirt – was $44.98, now $39.99
I adore the bold blue and Marimekko-esque print on this 100% cotton shirt. And check out the cute contrast collar and cuffs! This is a fabulous summer option and pairs beautifully with white, as shown here, but will also work with navy, tan, olive, and brights including yellow and green. Available in sizes XS – XL. Nothing truly similar, but this sleeveless blouse has similar color and pattern in 1X – 3X.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for washable button-front tops:
- Foxcroft – If you want a button-front that can be washed and worn with virtually no ironing, look to Foxcroft. And they do petites and plus sizes, too.
- J.Jill – Depending on your office, some of these may feel a little casual for work but if your lifestyle is office-free they’re ideal. Lots of lovely, lightweight blouses that you can throw in the washer, including this striped shirt with contrast placket.
- LOFT – A few dry cleanables, but lots more washables like this pretty foulard-print button-front.
- And, of course, THRIFT STORES! My local thrift shops are brimming with blouses and button-fronts, many of them washable. Definitely worth a look. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)
