I had the same problem. I got accepted into a summer program where we have to wear business attire but I had no business clothes nor did I have the budget to be buying high-end outfits. When I first searched for some items, I saw that blazers were $75, shirts were $30, and pants were $50. This was not an option. So I decided to check the stores that I already shop at to see if they had what I needed. Lucky for me, they did.
Whether you’re working or not, you need a classic button up shirt. This one is perfect and only $17 from Forever 21.
It can get pretty hot here in Chicago during the summer so a skirt is a must. Plus bold colors are in this season so here is what I found. It’s a pencil skirt so it has an appropriate length. This one is also $17 and it’s from Charlotte Russe.
