Want to look stylish at work without spending a fortune? We’ve got you covered! When building your work wardrobe the best place to start is with classic, go-to pieces that you can pair with existing wardrobe favourites as well as more trend focused buys you’ll pick up from season to season.
Classic monochrome and neutral tones are always a failsafe look, but if you like a little more spice in your 9-5 style, don’t be afraid to experiment with animal print, one of the hottest trends of the season. A tailored pantsuit or printed jumpsuit are also great options for an on-trend look that will transition effortlessly from day to night. From the perfect pair of wide leg pants to the most fabulous check print coat, we’ve tracked down 32 chic workwear picks under $200. Keep scrolling for the goodies!
