  2. Delta Sierra :

    May I recommend Sierra Trading Post’s website as a source of basic office wear? You’ll shriek when you first look at it – lots of sports stuff – but take a breath and continue. They have a lot of dead-boring basics, but from high-end, high-quality names. A dead-boring good quality suit only needs a colorful shirt or sweater under it, and a great necklace, to make it bearable. When I lived in France, the professional women there used bright scarves to fix up a boring (which they mostly are) suit. Sierra doesn’t have many fashionable names, but sometimes you can find lines like Cambio, beautifully-made pants, usually $300 and more, and which fit like they were made for you, especially if you’re not a size 2. As with all discount websites, you have to go back a few times to find what you’re looking for, but today they have a $480 Magaschoni dress at half-price. $580 Teri Jon wrap dress for $140. I’ve bought tons of stuff from them over the years, never had a problem. Good menswear, too.
