17 Trendy Workwear Brands To Buy If You’re On A Budget

For many people, office clothes and accessories are a separate category in your wardrobe. Some trends you wear on the weekend, like cut-outs and sheer fabrics, go against even the most lax dress codes. Conversely, pieces deemed meeting appropriate — like a button-up shirt tucked into a stuffy pencil skirt — can look out of context when worn on casual weekend outings. So when you’re trying to grow your 9 to 5 essentials, it can quickly drive up the bill. Luckily, however, there are plenty of brands today offering functional and fashionable workwear on a budget. You just need to know where to shop.

Your first instinct might be to browse affordable retailers like Zara to find the pieces you need. However, to avoid accidentally pairing up with your coworker, it’s worth checking out other brands that offer high-quality, budget-friendly parts. Take a cropped cardigan from LESET or a ribbed pencil skirt from Favorite Daughter, for example, both of which are perfect for pairing with a button down shirt or to brighten up a plain white tee. Meanwhile, Re Ona’s chocolate brown pants will show off your fashion aptitude in a way tailored black pants can’t. If your company dress code leans on the less formal side, you can most definitely get away with wearing an almond-colored denim jumpsuit from Reformation.

The thing is, there are plenty of brands out there that offer fashionable workwear on a budget. (And you can even wear these pieces when you’re off duty.) Ahead, shop 17 of these office-friendly pieces.
