    Promising review: "I’m a flight attendant and the provided cotton blouses that are part of our uniform are stiff, hot, and require ironing. I bought these as a substitute and absolutely LOVE them. They travel beautifully, are cool on my skin and I’ve since added four more, including short sleeves. They don't wrinkle and they breathe!" —Kittymama

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes S–3XL).

    3. A romantic white blouse featuring flowy translucent sleeves that'll make you feel like Rose when she's standing on the bow of the Titanic even if you're just sitting in front of the office fan trying to keep cool.

    4. A sleek Riders by Lee Indigo three-quarter sleeve white work shirt I really could've used when I was a server and would accidentally dip my long sleeves in a customer's used marinara sauce.

    Promising review: "I bought this along with three other shirts to get my wardrobe ready for returning to work in an office. Of all the tops I bought this is my favorite. It is VERY comfortable – loose enough to be nonbinding, yet fitted enough to have some shape. It looks very nice. I especially like the double placket down the middle that hides the buttons." —MaggieMae

    Get it from Amazon for $23.70+ (available in sizes 1X–4X).

    5. An adorable white puff-sleeve blouse you'll don on days when you want to look and feel cute without the extra effort – because hey, you deserve that.

    Promising review: "This top is meant to be form fitting. I ordered a large and it fit perfectly. It's a very soft material. The sleeves make it special! They end in a small cuff made from the same material as the body of the top, which is like a soft T-shirt. I am very happy I bought this, I may order it in black! The price is also reasonable." —D. Strohm

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and three styles). 

    6. A highly rated Hanes polo shirt designed with built-in technology to keep odor and moisture at bay when it's bake-cookies-on-your-car's-dashboard degrees out.

    Note: Some reviewers suggest ordering a size down.

    Promising review: "I bought this based on a recommendation from my golf group. Our team shirt is so hot and sweaty feeling and I thought this would be the same, but this Hanes shirt is surprisingly comfortable. I first wore it on a hot day, although there was a bit of a breeze. The shirt did not stick to me and felt cooler than any other shirt I've worn. It was not see-through at all, thankfully. Very pleased with this." —KF

    Get it from Amazon for $17.19+ (available in sizes S–3XL).

    7. A warm-weather-ready pleated button-down blouse ideal for anyone torn between opting for a classic look and one that'll stand out. Enter: tulip puff sleeves!

    Note: Some reviewers suggest ordering a size up.

    Promising review: "I love this blouse. The sleeves and tailored cut takes your look beyond a typical white button down. I got compliments on my blouse all day. The construction is solid and it feels well made. I've washed it once and ironed it and it did beautifully." —MetroHippieMama

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes 2–20 and solid or striped).

    And if you're on your feet all day, you'll be forever grateful for these impressively comfortable shoes.

    8. A sophisticated long-sleeve chiffon white work shirt featuring a tasteful keyhole cutout just exuding "I mean business" vibes – but like, in a fun and stylish way. 

    Promising review: "Very nice! Top fits perfectly, looks great with a jacket. Fabric and construction are much better than I expected at this price!" —Mh

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    10. short-sleeve Eloquii blouse featuring a chic notch collar that's dressy but not *too* dressy – like, you could definitely wear this top with a pair of comfy work pants OR some casual denim shorts

    Promising review: "What a great everyday work shirt. The fabric is thick enough to have a nice drape but also not be too boxy. The arm hole is perfectly cut too. Overall, a great shirt for the summer." —Jennifer W.

    Get it from Eloquii for $54.95 (available in sizes 14–28).

    11. A sleeveless chiffon v-neck white work shirt you'll be reaching for every time you have to go into the office. This would also look fab with a stylish blazer (specifically the checkered one in this story) when it starts to get chilly out.

    12. A luxurious Quince white work shirt listed at a startling low price considering it's made of 100% European linen (which is an eco-friendly fabric, btw)!

    Promising review: "So chic. The material is top notch. I’ve worn it open as an outer layer too. It looked great even if it’s wrinkled so that’s a bonus, I don’t have to be so precise when ironing." —Kalina

    Get it from Quince for $39.90 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    13. A chic three-quarter sleeve cuffed blouse ideal for business-casual outings like spontaneous post-work happy hours (the best kind). Maybe even match it with a long skirt for an extra whimsical feel.

The Midtown Shirt looks great with my athleisure wear and it's pretty fabulous dressed up as well. The best part is the absolute comfort of the shirt. It stretches with the body, it drapes like a dream and, oh, it doesn't wrinkle! Everyone should have one in their closet." —Heather S.
