You spend the majority of your week at work. Complain all you want; it's reality. Therefore, you need a stellar 9-to-5 wardrobe that'll keep you comfortable while you're chained to your desk — but also make you feel confident for face-time with your boss. No, that doesn't mean a generic, black shift dress and those dingy pumps you've had on rotation since you graduated college.
Still, you work hard for that paycheck and shouldn't have to spend it all just to look work-appropriate. So, we're bringing you five legit sites to scoop up affordable and office-ready dresses, blazers, shoes, and bags. These brands aren't necessarily cheap, but they're lower-priced than other designer retailers. Because, if you're going to be in these clothes for eight-plus hours a day, five days a week, you want them to last. Click through to check out these must-shop brands and give your cohorts something stylish to talk about at the water cooler.
