Hey, just wondering where's the best place to buy work clothes? Need new clothes for work but reasonably priced, good quality clothes that are a bit stylish. Was looking at Next website and they seem to have lovely stuff for work but I've never bought anything in Next before

When I was working I was a big fan of Next and Wallis for ages. Also liked Reiss but they are a bit more expensive.

I buy from Next mostly. Get the odd thing in Dunnes. Have a few pairs of trousers from New Look as well.

M&S do great pencil skirts- I find the lenght better than the Next ones. I love Next for tops though. AWear can have nice stuff too.

I get most work clothes in Penneys/H&M or New Look! Have a couple of dresses from Next or ASOS! OT but where's good for a reasonably priced suit? May have an interview coming up and will defo need one - Penney's clothes are not interview material!

I'm not a big skirt person for work although in the winter I do like wearing short skirts, thick tights and boots. All round though I'm a slacks & top kinda person. So I'm looking at buying 3 -4 pairs of trousers and 5-7 tops that I can mix and match with if you get me. Must head over to Next in Liffey Valley next week and see what I can find Saw these tops in New Look....they would be ok for work, wouldn't they? Oh completely forgot about Zara!!!! :duh: Thank you!
