While most of us are currently working from home, it’s no secret that we’re mostly in lounge wear these days.
However, we all need a little retail therapy sometimes – so why not prep for a new back-to-the-work outfit or virtual office in the meantime?
We’ve made a list of places you can shop online to find the perfect outfit for your virtual conference or interview!
Start With The Basics
The key to looking put-together consistently is having an arsenal of basics. You can spend a few hundred dollars on the fun floral top that you can only wear once a month, or you can spend the same on several staples that you can combine to create several outfits.
The great thing about H&M, aside from their prices, is their variety. You can find a women’s blazer for every occasion for as low as $40, or a pair of men’s trousers starting at $33.
And if you find a style that you love, H&M probably sells it in at least one other color. Check them out if you’re looking for basics that you can mix and match!
If you’re trying to truly beef up your basics collection, look no further than UNIQLO. The clothes are a little less formal, but if you have a smart casual dresscode, check them out to find unbeatable deals on super cute basics.
Plus, with more than 1,000 stores worldwide and online shipping, UNIQLO is the best of both worlds: affordable and accessible.
This cute women’s clothing store (sorry guys!) has shops in Cambodia and Singapore, but ships worldwide. They have a robust sales section with tops for as low as S$14! OSMOSE has tons of fun and spunky clothes, but a basic black blazer will only set you back S$55.
All About Accessories
Now that you’ve got your basics covered, you can really spice things up by accessorizing. It’s easier to get away with repeating an outfit if you pair it with an accent necklace or fun pair of shoes.
While Zara is already a staple in most people’s closets, they do have a few hidden gems. For example, their inexpensive cufflinks and tie clips could dress up any suit.
They also sell a variety of signet rings that will undoubtedly make you feel fancy. Zara really is the place to go when you need statement earrings, a chunky belt, or a sharp watch.
Charles & Keith:
Whether you’re looking for a unique pair of mules or a crazy handbag, anything from Charles & Keith will revive that all black work outfit. The store sells pretty much every accessory you could imagine to take your wardrobe to the next level.
It may be known as a shoe store, but Aldo is also home to a great selection of other accessories. This includes a variety of sleek men’s messenger bags and eye-catching watches.
Of course, Aldo is also a great place to find comfy and stylish shoes with quality you can trust.
