It's looking a lot like I'm going to have a job this summer that requires some form of business casual clothes, which for me means collared shirts on their own or layered over other shirts plus dark jeans/other pants/simple skirts, nothing showing too much skin, etc etc blah blah blah. I've got a p good handle on what I think I should be wearing.
On the other hand, I have no idea where to get this stuff. I'm looking for tops mostly: either solid-color or simple patterned collared shirts, short sleeve and long sleeve. I'd really like to have a stable of moderately priced but not super boring shirts that I can mix up with jeans and slacks, especially something I could throw a skinny tie or a bow tie on in times of needing to dress up a little. I went to Good Will today and spent two hours trying to find something that didn't make me look like a dental assistant with limited results, but I noticed that everything I came away with that fit me really well is from the dreaded Banana Republic, which I definitely cannot afford.
So where do you guys get your businessy clothes on the cheap? Any brands you've had especially good luck with? I'm thinking of checking out Buffalo Exchange next but I know they're not always on the cheaper side of thrift. I humbly beg for your knowledge and suggestions!
