Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Pleat-Neck Sleeveless Cami – Life Style

A woman wearing a pleat-neck white sleeveless top and black pants

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Here’s an idea: Congratulate yourself on successfully finishing your holiday shopping by getting a little something for yourself — in this case, a reliable workwear basic with some detail that elevates it a bit. (If your shopping isn’t done yet, I feel your pain.) Not only is this top — perfect for wearing underneath a blazer — getting tons of great reviews at Amazon, but it’s appeared in at least two of our monthly posts where we round up readers’ most-bought items.

The top is available at Amazon in a wide price range depending on color/print (up to size 16), and at Dillard’s for $44 in aubergine and cranberry. (We’ll warn you that some of the prints are … a little loud.)

This blouse is sold out at, but the site does have a big markdown on the short-sleeve version in plus sizes.

P.S. Make sure to check out our post on what to buy for work outfits at Amazon.

P.P.S. Merry Christmas to those who celebrate, and to those readers in the path of the storm, be safe!
