Where to buy workwear?

My wardrobe for work mainly consists of clothes from Next and M&S. Having looked in their stores and online, I'm disappointed with what they have on offer at the moment but need to update my work wardrobe.

People in my office wear a mixture of tailored suits, smart dresses with blazers, or trousers/ skirt and a cardi.

Hobbs etc have some lovely things but they are way above my budget- need to stick to the Next/ M&S type of price bracket. Is there anywhere else I can try?

In case it matters, I'm late 20s and size 8- 10.

Banana republic always have offers on, and have good basics. Jackets with neat pencil skirt or cigarette trousers - zara and mango are really good for jackets. Lk bennett dresses from ebay. Or almost anything from massimo dutti

Banana Republic is good for trousers and Uniqlo is good for shirts/blouses. Zara occasionally for tops and blazers/jackets.

I've had several really good work dresses from the Sainsbury's Tu range.

I was surprised to find them & they are ace.

Boden sale, Monsoon, Zara, some H&M. I tend to wear 7/8 trousers, pencil skirts, shell tops, shirts and cardigans. Mix and match the better quality stuff with the cheaper stuff.

Banana Republic (great sales, especially in store).

Me & Em, especially for dresses.

Uniqlo have great smart dresses, blazers and shirts. Downside is they are only in London but you can buy online.
