Is there an outlet village near you at all? That would probably be a good place to find some bargain work wear.

I think Zara have some great work separates, nice trousers, pencil skirts and lovely stylish tops

M & Co cheapish if near you. Also online.

H&M have a nice workwear range which isn't too expensive. It's normally in a different section of the store. I've bought loads of work stuff from there.

French Connection black crepe trousers/skirts - pricey if new but they are fantastic. Don't crease, wash well and look much more expensive than they actually cost.

Buy them from ebay - size up if you are not too sure of your size and then get them take in to fit. Promise you they will last a heck of alot longer than cheaper alternatives.
There are these on at the moment in a size 12 (no - not mine, I'm CTB on ebay too)

Or try ebay for LK Bennett, Jigsaw or Hobbs workwear stuff - try on in their shops to check sizing (and if their "cut" fits you). Again, you could get things taken in to get a better fit. Trousers taken in up the back seam shouldn't be more than £10-15
