11 Chic Places to Shop for Office Appropriate Clothes - lowefactor


Work attire is always a tricky subject (like what is business casual, really?!). While there are many rules of thumb for office dressing, it depends on where you work. Be it in a creative field such as graphic design or somewhere more corporate, different environments call for different ensembles.

To add to the stress, it’s hard trying to find chic one-of-a-kind office appropriate garments. Although stores like H&M, Zara and Club Monaco are wardrobe staples, it’s always good to broaden one’s sartorial horizon.

Here’s a guide to a few haute e-retailers that will upgrade your work wardrobe.


Everlane ($)

Based in San Francisco, Everlane is our go to for slim fitting office basics. We especially love their inexpensive tees and tanks to be worn under a structured blazer.


Fashion to Figure ($)

A prime option for those with curves, Fashion to Figure offers clothing for sizes 12–26 in designs that are not only on trend, but perfect for day to night.


Piperlime ($$)

Piperlime offers everything from Ray-Bans to Dolce Vita shoes and exclusive design collaborations from celebrities like Nicole Richie and supermodel Chrissy Teigen.

COS ($$)

H&M’s much more Euro sister has recently been offered in the US via eCommerce. This makes it WAY easier to shop their bevy of minimalistic basics.

All Saints are for those with a hint of edge, without going over the deep end. Think distressed leather jackets with tailored trousers.

Based in Virginia, NEED SUPPLY boasts a bit of everything from normcore to grown up skater punk. We especially love their throng of patterned trousers and muted statement jewelry.


ModCloth ($$)

What if Zooey Deschanel was an online retailer? We’re sure she’ll have a similar concept to ModCloth. Prices vary, but you’ll find a nice steal for a vintage inspired shoe. Similar to Fashion to Figure, they have a full range of plus sizes.


The Outnet ($$$)

Net-A-Porter’s sister site is focused to shopping for deep discounts by Stella McCartney, Oscar De La Renta and Missoni. What’s even better? They have new arrivals every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
