Kelly’s Chic Under $100: Workwear.

affordable workwear under $100 | The Stripe

Shopping for your 9-to-5 is, in total honesty, kind of boring! How many button downs, pencil skirts, or ballet flats does a person really need!

It really shouldn’t be that way though. Finding what works for you is key, and then adding in other parts of your wardrobe is what makes it come to life. For example, I love a good striped collared blouse, so I love pairing them with jeans (if your workplace allows it – if not, try skinny black pants) and dressing them up with fun heels that can work double time as occasion shoes with an oversized statement bag.

Pick pieces that feel special but won’t break the bank (a luxe-feeling H&M find or two will do the trick) and pair them with key jewelry and always a lip. These pieces will refresh your workwear wardrobe in no time.
