I love Banana Republic. Nice clothes but affordable. I usually shop at the factory outlet store so it’s cheaper.

Madewell is my favorite go to for quality basics and great denim. They also have some fun pieces as well.

I like Karen Millen, WHBM, J Brand. But I mostly like sporty, casual stuff. Basic Nordstrom B P (Nordstrom brand) v-necks, stretchy skinny jeans, Adidas shoes. I don’t work in an office.

I buy a lot of JCrew, Banana Republic, and Nordstrom. I’ve also been meaning to try Everlane – I hear great things about them.

Sundance has the most beautiful tops and sweaters and jewelry. I get my jeans from Kohls.

For plus sized clothing, I have really been digging Loft for nice clothes for work that also translate to things I can wear outside of work when I pair with jeans.  Dresses, shirts, cardigans, everything.  I’m mid 30’s and it is sometimes tough to find things that are in between clothing marketed to “young” people and “older” people. Unfortunately their plus sizes aren’t in a lot of stores right now, but I’ve figured out my size with them and nearly everything I have purchased online has fit well.

Loft’s petites line for business casual work wear

Madewell & J.Crew for jeans and basics

Anthro for occassional pricier items to spice things up

Nordstrom for basics and footwear

I’m pretty limited to places that sell XXSP and carry size 23 jeans – there aren’t too many of them

New York and company and Michael Kors are my go to if I want to know I’ll walk out of that store with something I’ll actually wear. I also will typically have a lot of luck at Lord and Taylor, nordstroms and Macy’s just avoid the younger trendy sections. I used to love tjmaxx and off 5th, sometimes you can find great deals there but you have to watch out for off stitching and cheap materials even on items that are supposed to be name brand. I heard somewhere that they make separate clothing for those stores that have the branding but not the quality. If you want deals check out the clearance sections of upscale department stores over discount stores. I got almost my entire initial professional wardrobe on clearance at Macy’s and I still get compliments on items that have lasted from that first round. They are out there. Ive given up on Amazon, you can expect the clothing there to last 2-4 wears before falling apart in some way.

Tj Maxx, Kohls, Ross’s, Boscov’s, Macy’s & of course Marshalls.

They all have a pretty decent selection!
