Which one would you hire?
Shopping for work clothes can be stressful and can put a major dent in your pocket. If you don't mind second hand clothes I suggest visiting your local thrift stores. I have bought very nice clothing for work from my local thrift stores. Some even have dressing rooms so you can try them on.
