And I'm back with Work Wear Wednesday #2! Today I decided to share some workwear finds from Amazon of all places. As students, we get access to free Amazon Student Prime! This means free two-day shipping and free returns. With that plus cheap finds, getting work basics off Amazon is a way to start getting work wardrobe without spending much.

I'm low key obsessed with Amazon and shop on there way too much, but recently just decided to start buying more than just household items on there and try out their clothes. I was really worried about buying clothes from Amazon because I was afraid of getting clothes that were made out of cheap material and that looked nothing like what the picture was. This isn't the norm, but that's not to say that it hasn't happened to me. My biggest tip for buying clothes from Amazon is to read the reviews and especially look at any reviews with pictures if you can. Save your time and money and don't order something with a bunch of different people saying the material is scratchy or something. But if you do end up with a miss, the best part about Amazon is the free returns so just go ahead and send it back!


Basic camis

I ordered this white cami to wear with jeans and a cardigan this spring, but one day was like hey maybe it'll look good under a blazer and damn was I right! The material was perfect to be business-y and it has built-in fabric to keep my bra from showing through. I actually loved it so much that I went back and got it in black and green!

Basic shells

While camis are great under blazers, sleeveless work tops are great to wear suits when you need to be more formal. If your office is casual you might get away with wearing them as-is, but you can always make it more professional by adding a blazer or cardigan on top.

Basic pants

While you'll definitely need a suit, you won't necessarily need to wear your suit pants every single day and instead can wear just normal business professional pants. Since this pair is only $30, you can easily build a capsule wardrobe just by buying a black pair one month, a navy pair another month, and a gray pair another month!

Chiffon tops

Chiffon tops always look good for work because they're a step up from regular cotton shirts. Basically any color you get will go perfect with the pants above, and then you can mix and match to easily create a capsule wardrobe since this top is only $20 each. 

Bow tie tops

Let's just all agree to never use the official term for these "pussy bow" and just call them by the less-awkward "bow tie" (even though it sounds like a guy's bow tie). Once you get past the name, bow tie tops are amazing for work! They look so stylish and classic tucked into a pencil skirt! Personally I think everyone should have one just because they look so damn good.

See? Some actually good stuff on there! And this is just 5 pieces of the literal thousands of professional clothing options on Amazon. Since there's nothing fancy about these pieces, you can easily stock up on them and instead of paying $100 for one pair of pants, you can get pants and 2-3 tops! But here's to hoping that one day $100 will actually be cheap for what we can afford to spend on work pants haha. 
let's be friends!

  1. I had never even thought about buying clothes from amazon until a couple of weeks ago when I found their workout clothes, but now I'm even more amazed because I never would've thought to buy office work clothes! Like I'm honestly in awe right now, I'm so glad I stumbled across this post!

    1. I know right! Honestly I hadn't thought about it until I got the cami and it made myself question what else they might have and I was pleasantly surprised!
