The Affordable Fashion Scores Fashionable Professionals Swear By

It’s a weird time to be a professional person right now. Very few workplaces still adhere to the “office professional” attire of business suits and formal blouses. Add an ongoing pandemic that leaves many of us in some kind of ever-shifting WFH/hybrid set-up, and figuring out what to wear to work has only gotten more confusing. Finding clothes that are polished, fashionable, comfortable, and work-appropriate plagues many of us, even if we’d never go back to the panty-hose-and-heels days.

Looking for some inspiration, we asked over 40 professionals to dish on their favorite affordable fashion finds. The word “affordable” here is subjective, of course — we’ve got a whole gamut of participants with different style needs, from a CEO of a tech company to an on-set costumer for TV and film. To that end, the picks you’ll see vary tremendously, from budget-friendly gems to investment pieces that still offer great value for your dollar — and will last for years. And while the hands-down fave retailers are H&M, Uniqlo, Etsy, and Amazon, many of those we spoke to also cited resale sites like Poshmark, The RealReal, The Outnet, thredUP, and Depop as crucial shopping destinations for sourcing designer items for cheap. And, surprisingly (although, maybe not?), many of these fashion finds were discovered via Instagram ads.

In terms of the actual fashion pieces, the majority of the picks (which are a healthy mix of both neutral and statement) were chosen for their “business casual” versatility. Think: button-ups that can be dressed up or down, oversized blazers that can be thrown on for Zoom calls, plain tees and tanks that are perfect as base layers, and cute jumpsuits that take the guesswork out of getting dressed. However, we think the best affordable professional clothes would have to be the fashion styles that are so unicorn-perfect in price, quality, fit, and level of appropriate-ness that they’re copped in every single color. And, don’t you worry, you’ll see several of those picks up ahead, too.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Cute Tops For The Workplace

Big Dart Long-Sleeve Blouse

“My favorite workwear staple is my screaming loud blouse that I found on Amazon Fashion for $23. It is one of my best conversation starters. I hardly ever shop for fashion on Amazon, but one day I was shopping for household products and I was like, ‘Let me tuck some other goodness in this shipment.’ I searched for ‘women blouses’ and there it was. [It was a welcome change after] wearing the same blouses over and over again for Zoom meetings.” — Sara, founder/CEO

Wosalba Womens Long Sleeve Turtleneck

“I purchased a jersey turtleneck for myself several years ago, and I loved it so much I’ve since added it to my list of wardrobe essentials (from which numerous clients have purchased and loved). What I love most about this piece (other than the ah-mazing price point) is that it looks great with just about anything: jeans, pleated pants, skirts, boots, wide-leg pants, pumps, vests, flares, etc. And because it’s so lightweight, it’s a great layering piece that can be worn in the fall, winter, and spring.” — Lana, personal stylist and personal shopper

Banana Republic Tailored Non-Iron Shirt

“I’m all for the current oversized shirt trend but there’s really nothing quite like a classic fitted, crisp, white button-down — and for under $30, this one from Banana Republic is hard to beat! The 98% cotton, 2% spandex give you just the right amount of stretch and, best of all, it’s machine washable! Last but not least, the length is perfect to tuck into jeans, pants, or skirts, OR to leave untucked — win-win-win.” — Lana, personal stylist and personal shopper

Uniqlo x Marimekko Short-Sleeve Shirt

“As an interior designer, I always have to be fashion-forward — and with so many appointments on the books, I have to shop on-trend and affordably. Every New Yorker knows Uniqlo is a hidden gem for quality workwear pieces at great price points. They have great button-downs that can be paired with a pair of white jeans and cool heels.” — Sherica, interior designer

“I love buying tops, blazers, and pants on sale at the regular Banana Republic store or the Factory. Even if these particular pieces may be out of stock sometimes, they may have similar pieces across the whole collection to mix and match. The key, for me, is choosing classics! I love pieces that last for years, and I love purchasing them when there’s a huge sale.” — Karisa, certified personal trainer and certified nutrition coach

“The Wknd Nation Power Tee in pink and black are my workwear workhorses because the fit and style of this organic tee look good with everything from jeans to skirts and pants. I wear them both all the time and the colors never fade. These tees are some of the most flattering and comfortable pieces I own and I’m always feeling confident in them. I know I will wear these tees for seasons to come because they always make me look polished.” — Melissa, communications entrepreneur

Geyoga Basic Racerback Crop Tank Top 4-Pack

“I would have to say my favorite workwear staples are my Amazon tank tops I wear under a blazer, cardigan, or small cropped jacket. I discovered these tank tops on an influencer’s Instagram story. I was so intrigued with the style I had to buy them immediately! They come in four different colors: white, black, brown, and dark green. I mainly wanted a simple style to go along with my other capsule wardrobe pieces.” — Paige, real estate consultant

Bardot Senita Knit Top

“I discovered knit tops through shopping for various two-piece outfits. It makes such a great score because whether it is bought as a matching set or as a solo piece, it can be integrated with so many other pieces including skirts, pants, blazers, over a button-up, etc. And with many offices being chilly, it is great for keeping warm without having to wear long sleeves.” — Lesha, support specialist

Everlane The Square Air Shirt

“I know I’m not rocking anyone’s world by recommending Everlane, but I have an earlier edition of this shirt and I wear it all the time. It’s become the perfect Zoom piece because it looks cute over jean shorts in the summer so it doesn’t look like one of those newscaster memes we saw early in the pandemic of a suit and tie over basketball shorts. This top is also airy enough to throw on over yoga clothes if I have time for a midday workout but not enough time for a shower and a wardrobe change.” — Liza, psychotherapist

Cute Shoes For The Workplace

Marks and Spencer Wide Fit Leather Tassel Flatform Loafers

“I am a huge fan of loafers because they are versatile for the workplace and even for fun outings. That is why when I found these leather loafers from Marks and Spencer, I absolutely had to buy them as part of my workwear essentials. I wear them to work most days and they really have become a staple in my wardrobe! I discovered these shoes when I was out window-shopping. I’m a no-frills person so the plain black design of these shoes really appealed to me. Plus, the slight shine makes them perfect for a polished look and does not undermine the professional environment at all!” — Marilyn, founder of a tech company

Aerosoles Emon

“I never was a heels person, but these clogs have turned things around for me. They’re mad comfy, give me a very generous boost, and don’t slip off my feet like most mules. They’re the actual ideal shoes for the professional woman that I am. And, because these are Aerosoles, you best believe they’re lightweight, have grippy soles, and have squishy footbeds that save me from blisters.” — Jinnie, writer

Dansko Professional Clogs

“When I was pregnant four years ago, I dropped $130 on a pair of brown leather Dansko clogs because I was completely uncomfortable in anything else.

QipaoMood Chinese Embroidery Slipper

“My ABSOLUTE favorite back-to-work fashion piece are these slippers I bought on Etsy. They were an impulse buy to cheer myself up for returning to full-time work and travel. They were also a much-needed solution to the comfy slipper habit I formed while at home during lockdown. I don’t even remember how I happened upon this exact pair, but they are a stunning, comfortable, affordable godsend. I get compliments on them everywhere I go, and I struggle with whether I should admit they’re slippers or not. They feel like a glove, literally. They are also slides, so I can kick them off under my desk if no one is looking and shuffle back into them as I rise to greet a client.” — Kathy, founder/CEO

Cole Haan Grandpro Spectator 2.0 Slip-On Sneaker

“We got a puppy during the pandemic, so easy-on, easy-off slip-ons have been a lifesaver for training and emergency walks between Zoom calls. I like this pair from Cole Haan as a dressier option — it feels profesh and can also be worn to in-person meetings. And these Vans are great for everyday use.” — Laura, senior design and technology editor

Laws of Motion Quint Dress

“This reversible dress is my professional (and personal) go-to. I’m big on investment pieces and this machine-washable and sustainable dress fits the bill. The versatility is what sold me. There are long straps at the neck that allow you to style the dress as a mock neck or tied as a bow in the front. It’s my favorite day-to-night piece because I can wear it with the bow with a kitten heel for work, then reverse it as a mock neck and throw on a sneaker before I leave for happy hour.” — Sara, senior client partnership coordinator at Refinery29

“I get all of my clothes from a store called Mordenmiss on Amazon. I have this tunic dress in every color and I wear leggings under it. I found this by pure luck! I was searching for Lagenlook clothes, which is essentially a whimsical European look that is really fashionable at the moment. I came across Mordenmiss and have never looked back! This clothing line is very European, really trendy, and eclectic; most importantly, it is forgiving. Most dresses have an empire line that gives you a natural hourglass, and the tops gather at the sides in a way that enhances your natural curves! Lastly, they’re true to size. I get asked about my clothing ALL the time.” — Nikki, travel writer

One of my go-to’s are my Percey glasses by Warby Parker — I have every shade and pattern. I interchange them daily and sometimes even throughout my day. I’m a free-wheeling, spunky woman in my late 50s, but I have to play an austere role at work. These glasses do it all for me!” — Amy, financial controller

Lululemon Customizable Snap Scarf

“By far my fave post-Covid ‘back to work’ find is my Lululemon vinyasa scarf. It was my fashionable security blanket when I emerged from my zen home and returned to a sterile office. During the lockdown, I depended on yoga breaks a couple of times a day which gave my life some sort of rhythm during Covid. My vinyasa scarf has been a flexible staple of my work/life wardrobe ever since. I’ve also used it as a layering piece, as a beach coverup, and as a cute accessory for happy hours or dates.” — Nadia, health advisor and registered dietitian

“I recently found an affordable perfume I am obsessed with that reminds me of my way more expensive Le Labo scent Vetiver. I can roll it on multiple times a day without worrying about the cost per wear. I’ve been going back on set for photoshoots since Covid restrictions loosened up and wearing perfume feels like putting a bow on an outfit, you know what I’m saying?” — Isabelle, creative director

They come in so many cute colors and she knew the styles fit my personality perfectly.” — Breanna, associate social media editor at Refinery29

“My pick is this solid silver hair pin — there are so many different versions on Etsy at varying price points. I love it because it’s small enough to stash in my pencil cup, my purse, and even my wallet. These pins just work better on curly hair like mine in comparison to the ever-popular banana clip, and they produce a sleeker look with more hold. It looks really nice for a dinner out after work!” — Sara, digital designer

“With my narrow shoulders, blazers from French brands tend to fit me better. I like to troll sales and resale sites like The Outnet and The RealReal to snag good deals on my favorite brands like Maje, ba&sh, and Comptoir des Cotonniers. In the Before Times, I could wear these blazers with a full business professional look, or more casually with jeans.

“As a business owner, a large bag is essential as I have to be ready to do work at a moment’s notice. I can’t tell you how important it is for my bag to fit my 14″ laptop along with my makeup, chargers, notebooks, and other accessories. Thankfully, I came across an ad on Amazon for a large faux leather tote bag for just $33. This bag also includes an extra clutch and metal feet so I can place it on the ground while waiting for my Uber or bus. This bag is also reversible and transforms from a black pebbled leather design to a flamboyant cheetah print for when you want to dress more casually.” — Jessica, founder and CTO

Made of sturdy vegan leather and available in a rainbow range of colors, it’s the perfect bag for not only my commute but a busy day (and night) out in the city.” — Cady, staff writer

I can easily dress them up with a sleek pair of heels and silk blouse. They truly are the perfect cross between sport leggings and office-ready trousers. I first discovered them scrolling through Instagram. I loved the brand’s look and feel and its agenda: ‘Each piece in the collection is a highly versatile essential that’s meant to be a starting point, handpicked to inspire you and open up a world of possibilities, outfit-wise and beyond.’ It’s a great brand that I recommend checking out.” — Kelly, CEO/co-founder

Anyway, they have a sizing chart for people under and over 5’4”. These pants are super comfortable and have an elastic waistband which actually permitted me to wear them through most of my pregnancy, just with the waistband lower and lower. The curved leg is super flattering and it allows me to actually pull off a baggy look without me looking silly.
