- About Us
Most of us are familiar with the term, “dress for success.” The idea is that the clothing you wear can help you project self-confidence and professionalism, especially in the workplace. However, building a professional work wardrobe on a budget isn’t always easy. How can you spend less and still dress for success? At Ohio Valley Goodwill, we know that finding professional, fashionable items to wear to work or job interviews doesn’t need to cost a fortune!
Whether you’re starting your career or just looking to add some new items to your wardrobe, Goodwill is the place to find professional clothing for work. Shop at Goodwill and save on the following work essentials.
When you’re first building your work wardrobe, you should focus on core pieces that you can wear over and over again. Look for basic items in neutral colors such as dress pants, button-down shirts or blouses, cardigans, pencil skirts, and a classic little black dress. You can then pair these neutral staple pieces with accent pieces in brighter colors to create a new look every time you wear them! Shop at Goodwill to start building your wardrobe with workwear basics at amazing prices.
Wearing the right clothing will help you look and feel your best in an interview. For men, professional business attire usually means wearing a suit and tie, while women often wear a blouse and dress pants or a dress. If you need some new interview-ready clothes, check your local Goodwill store for great bargains on professional clothing such as women’s blazers, men’s suit jackets, dress pants.
Complete your professional work wardrobe with accessories that are both fashionable and functional. Look for larger tote bags, messenger bags, or briefcases to hold everything you need for your workday, including paperwork, pens, or even a laptop if necessary! To tie your outfit together, look for a watch or a statement necklace. You can always find a variety of handbags, shoes, jewelry, and other accessories at Goodwill, where inventory is updated each day with fresh merchandise.
Uniforms and scrubs
If your job requires you wear a specific uniform or follow a dress code, make Goodwill your first stop to find work attire for less. Goodwill stores frequently stock gently used medical scrubs, khaki pants, white button downs, black dress pants, and uniform clothing at deeply discounted prices.
