Sometimes dressing for work can be a REAL pain; while some offices will tolerate sneakers and t-shirts on a daily basis, I’ve worked in places where “casual Friday” doesn’t include wearing jeans! We’ve all had dilemma with dress codes, but to make matters even more tricky, since we are all so busy, we can’t spend our precious moments in the morning or evening steaming, ironing, and just generally pressing clothes for the work day. Below I’ve listed some perfectly office-friendly options, at a variety of price points that will help to minimize, and in some cases eliminate, your work clothes prep.
From classic to on-trend, you can easily pair these options with black or khaki pants and skirts, and be ready for that big meeting today in a jiffy. Of note, when shopping for low maintenance blouses, look for key words such as “no iron” or “iron free” and “machine washable” in woven shirts, and for jersey knits, synthetic fiber are ACTUALLY your friend; they are more wrinkle-resistant than cotton and natural fibers, so can easily transition from the dryer to the your body.

So great to hear that it looks as good in person as it does in the pic, and you are totally right about the Tucker comparison!
