All the online shopping links you need to vamp up your workwear wardrobe.


With the biggest shopping weekend ahead of us, who isn’t scrolling for the best bargains during coffee breaks. Personally, I find that online shopping is great for having all the options and being able to compare, but I also feel it can be quite overwhelming.

I’ve developed some online shopping strategies ever since I started working and suddenly never had time to go shopping during opening hours – and I simply cannot bear squeezing myself through masses of people on the weekend.

My number one tip is to get an account with your favorite shops (mine are asos, shopbop and mytheresa) and start using the “favorites” function. Whenever I’m on the train, waiting for something, having a coffee break or the likes, I scroll through the “new in” sections and mark anything I like with a “♥”. That way, I can sleep on it and go back later to select what I really want to buy. Not having to decide right away helps me break the sheer mass of options down into a first and then a second selection. Also, I avoid impulse buying.

If you ask me – the most difficult thing to shop for is office clothing. Unfortunately, I have yet to come across a store or a brand that just has it all. Then again – who wants to dress in one brand from head to toe?

So I’ve not only put together a list of my favorite online shops, but I’ve also categorized them according to what items I like to buy there, as well as ranked them in terms of pricing. Here we go:

  1. Love this post! Some of those are my favourite shooping websites as well. I noticed you didn’t mention Ann Taylor though..I have been following you since the stiletto blog and you used to wear lots of stuff from her. Don’t you like their clothes anymore? If so, what is your favorite item to buy there?

    I can recommend Reiss for suits as well. I love the fitting!

    Have a great day hun!
