How to Refresh Your Back-to-Work Wardrobe on Any Budget
What to buy if you want to spend $150, $300, or $600 on your back-to-office wardrobe.
If you’re one of the many Americans preparing to return to the office in the near future, you may be wondering: What in the world am I supposed to wear? Sure, you’re going to the same office you hastily left fifteen months ago when you thought you’d be back in two weeks, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to revert back to the same dress code.

But here’s the thing: Updating your wardrobe can get expensive, especially if you don’t have extra time to devote to deal-hunting. To make things easier, we put together a guide on what you should buy for your wardrobe refresh, depending on how much you want to spend. These are the investments we believe will have the biggest impact on your wardrobe.
