This series is brought to you by Nordstrom.com: Think Less Buttoned-Up—It’s a New 9 to 5.
Searching for the perfect crisp, white button-down can be a never-ending battle when it’s your work wardrobe go-to. We found an updated version in People Tree’s Puff Sleeve blouse. Not only does it break convention with its subtle shoulder poufs, woven stripe pattern, and peplum hem, but it’s also made from planet-pandering (not to mention comfy) organic cotton.
ALL TIED UP
Who says neckties are just for men? The corporate neck noose can add some clout to your look, as well. Channel Annie Hall with The Hill-Side’s organic-cotton-and-flax tie for a classic approach to gender-bending.
This versatile yet anti-yawn skirt heightens the look of any outfit. High-waisted to flatter your curves (or lack thereof), Camilla Norrback’s organic-cotton pencil skirt hits perfectly below the knee for a look that’s sleek without being tawdry.
