However, looking great at work and fitting your office’s unique culture shouldn’t have to cost your entire paycheck. Below are a list of some great places to shop for high quality professional clothing without breaking the bank.

1) J. Crew Factory

Picture your beloved J. Crew, but with lower prices and is almost always on sale. That’s what this store is all about! It’s still the same great quality and preppy styles as the regular J. Crew, since they simply sell last seasons clothes for less. Also, J. Crew Factory has a special discount for teachers and students, so shop away!

2) H&M

3) T.J. MAXX

If you love the thrill of a great bargain and don’t mind rolling up your sleeves and searching, T.J. MAXX is a great place for business clothes. Unlike any of the other stores on this list thus far, T.J. MAXX sells designer brands for less. This store also sells a variety of designer purses, planners, stationery, and other accessories that can help you stay organized on a budget, so be sure to stock up here instead of the mall.

4) Nordstrom Rack

Similar to T.J. MAXX, Nordstrom Rack sells high quality designer clothes for bargain prices. One major difference is that T.J. MAXX, this store gets its merchandise directly from their parent store, Nordstrom, so prices tend to be a bit higher, due to the designers being a little more prestigious. However, if you’re looking for the perfect pair of work heels that actually fit right, look no further because Nordstrom Rack not only has killer deals on shoes, but carries a wide variety of sizes ranging from women’s 4 to women’s 13.

5) Old Navy

Once again, this is not your average professional clothing store, but it has plenty to offer if you get creative. Staples such as blouses, skirts, and modest dresses are plentiful at this store, and one of the greatest things about Old Navy is their size inclusiveness. The range of sizes goes from XS-4XL. Also, you don’t have to worry if your hemline is too short for your business office or about having to cuff your dress pants, since many styles are offered in Petite, Regular, or Tall lengths. Lastly, Old Navy almost always has sales, so be sure to look out for those in order to get the best deal possible.
