Work wear plays an integral part of our wardrobe because we spend so much time at the office — well, for some of us at least. It’s important to look good while you’re on the clock. When you look good, you feel good and that will make you more productive, right?

Many office ladies buy their work outfits from the usual fast fashion retailers. From their trend-driven pieces to their quality classics, they almost never disappoint. But, there’s just one problem. You sometimes find yourself in the same dress as someone else while having lunch at the canteen — awkward much?

Now’s the time to switch things up a little! Here are 7 great online sites that you should consider adding to your rotation. They offer an affordable selection of work-ready staples to year-round elevated basics giving those fast-fashion powerhouses a run for their money.
