After a ton of reader requests, we’ve been rounding up some of the top things readers have bought recently — so here are some of the most-purchased items from September 2022!
(Admin note: we’ve changed the format of this post; let us know your thoughts! In the current iteration, we’re just focusing on the list of top-bought items only and then a few of the more interesting, trendy pieces instead of the pieces that are also high on the list. At the same time, we’ve renewed our “How to Build a Work Wardrobe At ___” series, focusing on the reader favorites from each individual store, since there really are a lot of clear winners from looking at the data.) We’ll also try to add in some store-specific, trendy items that readers bought a lot of last month.)
See the whole series of most-bought reports here. We’ve tried to note in the text where an item is in our Workwear Hall of Fame, as well as whether it’s on sale!
