After a year or more away from the office many people are finding themselves with a closet full of nothing to wear. Maybe your old work clothes don’t fit after a year of no use or maybe you’re just tired of the same old styles. Here are a few ways you can get office ready on a budget.
Many department stores have seen a decline in in-person sales over the past year. The competition for the lowest prices has moved online. Shopping online makes it easy to compare prices instantly and find items that may be out of stock in stores. Online shopping also gives you access to customer reviews. It’s vital to read reviews carefully and also search for pictures of real customers wearing the product. Always know the store’s return policy before placing your order, in case you receive something that doesn’t match the photo online or the seller uses a unique sizing chart.
Find an online styling service
There are several companies that have grown out of a desire to change up your style often without breaking the bank. ThredUp and Stitch Fix are just two examples of companies that offer quality pieces at a discount. You fill out a short survey about styles you like, they send a few and you’re welcome to send them back or keep them. This is a great way to try something out without making a full purchase.
There are several different companies following this trend. Some resell clothing, some purchase their clothes at wholesale. Most allow you to customize your budget and how often you’d like to receive new clothes.
