How do you make a suit less stuffy, or turn boring flat-front trousers into half of an ensemble you can’t wait to wear? With an un-frumpy work blouse, of course!

Today we’re giving the “Under $100” treatment to contemporary designer work blouses in prints that are a ton of fun, but still fully appropriate for the office. Check out these fabulous sale finds…

This silk chiffon blouse is super lightweight and a little billowy. Anchor the look for work with a chocolate brown suit. Once the weekend rolls around, pair this funky print with your favorite distressed jeans.

I adore the hand-drawn star print on this tie-neck blouse. It adds a bit of playfulness to an otherwise classic workwear silhouette. Wear it fully buttoned and tied for a more conservative office, or untied and slouchy to match a creative office vibe.
