Where to Buy Women’s Workwear and Business Attire Online

Depending on where your work – it is expected that the clothing you wear is a reflection of the company you work for. Whether you are required to wear a suit with stockings and heels or jeans and a t-shirt, workwear should always be neat and tidy, durable, comfortable and professional.

Going the extra mile to add the splash of professionalism like embroidery to personale your garment is also another great idea.

1. Keeping the Cost of Workwear Down

Having mixed pieces (top and bottom) rather than dresses may seem a bit more expensive when purchasing, but because you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe, it is the most cost-effective way of dressing yourself for work.  Keep the colours of pants and skirts neutral (ie black or navy) – then invest in a few brightly coloured tops that will make the whole outfit look new every time.

Spending more on these basic business workwear fashion pieces and less on ‘seasonal’ trends will save in the long run.

2. Have a Workwear ‘Capsule’ Wardrobe:

If you want to save a fortune on workwear clothing you have to wear to work, look at putting together a work ‘capsule’ wardrobe.  These are a selection of 5 – 8 pieces of good-quality work clothing that you can mix and match – and takes the thought about ‘What do I wear today’ – out of the picture.  A traditional style capsule would include:

  • 1 x Pair of Slacks (black or navy)
  • 1 x Skirt (black or navy)
  • 2 long sleeve blouses (white, black, navy, red)
  • 1 x Black or Navy Dress

With a workwear capsule, you can then use fashion accessories such as scarves, statement necklaces and shoes to dress up or down the pieces.

3. How to Make Cheaper Workwear Pieces Look a Million Bucks

If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on work clothing, you can still look a million bucks with cheaper items.  Just ensure that they fit well!  In fact, every girl should know a dress-maker that can take the pieces you do buy and ensure they fit you like a dream.  Nipping and tucking a good blazer or dress to fit your body makes your outfit look expensive!

Look at local tailors, clothes hospitals or alterations specialists to find someone that will quickly (and hopefully cheaply) adjust each piece to fit you well.
