Want to look as put-together as Scully

What is this style of blouse called?

I've tried searching "formal v neck", "no collar blouse", "collarless blouse". I am looking for the right search term, and haven't found it yet. Or if you know where I could purchase a blouse like the one in the screenshot, that would work too.

It's a shawl collar blouse (It only looks collarless in that picture because the jacket is hiding it!)

It looks like it could be a wrap shirt to me.

I'm going to be Solomonic and say it's probably a wrap blouse with shawl collar, which is a look very much of that era. This would be similar.

I remember this style also being called "scarf neckline"--this reminds me of the suit blouses I wore then.

Here are a couple options that are affordable and available in white, in case you're trying to re-create Scully's outfit. I found these by searching for shawl collar tops on ShopStyle, then adding limits to the color and price.
