Appropriate work attire is a required, regardless of your industry or job. Building a work clothing wardrobe, however, can become expensive. Most of us would rather save our money for something fun (vacation), special (an awesome bag), or simply save.
You can create a chic and stylish wardrobe without spending excessive amounts of money. Pieces may not be designer label but no one will know that but you. And in reality, it shouldn’t matter if you are wearing a $350 or $35 silk blouse. The point should be to dress appropriately for the job, affordably and stylish.
