One of the biggest requests I got for blog posts in the new year was work wear! How to style it, where to buy it, and affordable places to find it. That was the inspiration behind this post!
I’ve had to wear professional dress so many times this semester that I can’t even count. I bought a black work blazer and a pair of slim black dress pants and seriously have not gone back! They come in handy so much.
I rounded up eight stores that I have found some amazing work wear deals from! I’ve slowly been piecing together my professional wardrobe for the last few months in anticipation of an internship. These are Where to Shop for Affordable Work Wear! Most items listed are also under $50.
Where to Shop for Affordable Work Wear
The first place I’ve been able to find affordable work wear is Target! Not only is this my favorite place, they also have great staples for a great price. As a college student, I’m always looking for quality for less. All of the pieces I found below are under $50 and will work on so many body types! Shop my picks below:
2. Old Navy
Old Navy is another place where I’ve found quality work wear. On Black Friday I actually scored a pair of their pixie polka dot pants for just $14! I found them online and they’re just $17 right now. That link is (here)! Old Navy is always having amazing sales like the half off they had when I found these pants. Make sure to always check back to see when they’re having great deals! I linked a super similar pair of my pants below:
Y’all already know that LOFT is my go-to place for almost anything. While working there, I was able to score SO MANY cute professional dresses. Now I go there for blazers, dress pants, and blouses for work! I have a white blazer from LOFT that’s not only chic, but it’s also lightweight which is great for people living in warmer states (like me). Shop some other work wear below:
I’m not going to lie, I hadn’t really thought about Pretty Little Thing until I started writing this post! Most of their clothing items are a bit more risqué than what I normally wear. They’re also a bit more revealing than what most businesses allow! That being said, their blazers are cute and affordable! They also have affordable dress pants too. It’s definitely worth a look; you can shop some items below:
Now you’re probably like “uhhhh J.Crew Factory is still kinda expensive.” However! Don’t be alarmed. I found some items on sale for under $50 AND you have to always make sure to check because they have crazy good deals! Right now everything is 50% off and they generally have a sale similar if not better! Shop some wrk wear items below:
ASOS is a place I’ve been shopping from for a while. They’re almost like a marketplace because they sell items from a bunch of different companies! Pretty Little Thing actually sells through ASOS. That being said, they also have exclusive items that are more unique than some other clothing items. I found a bunch of adorable professional items linked below:
Nordstrom is a favorite of mine and I know a lot of other bloggers love shopping there too! Nordstrom Rack is basically just the overstocked items from Nordstrom so they’re name brand, but much cheaper. Their work wear items are from top designers and are under $50! Such a great deal. Be sure to shop some professional items picks of mine below:
I’m not a huge proponent of fast fashion, but H&M has made quite a few strides in transparency recently. The blazer and dress pants I mentioned at the beginning are ones that I bought from here! I got both of them for less than $80 which, for professional wear, is pretty decent.
For H&M, I decided to round up work wear from several categories! There were just SO MANY affordable options that were also too cute to pass up. I found some blazers, dress pants, blouses, and shoes that are great for the work place! Be sure to look through some of them below:
I hope you guys enjoyed this first professional work wear post! If you didn’t know before, these eight places are Where to Shop for Affordable Work Wear. Almost all the items I found are also under $50 and still great quality!
