Day after day, I’ve found myself hopelessly rummaging through my closet for presentable summer work outfits. Although I have plenty of warm weather pieces—like lightweight crop tops, thigh-high mini skirts, and vacation-worthy beach dresses—these items simply aren't refined enough to fit into a standard corporate dress code. Needless to say, I’m in desperate need of a major workwear refresh.

So, I’ve turned to my favorite retailers for some assistance, and it just so happens that several of them are hosting major designer sale events. At this very moment, Shopbop is offering up to 70 percent off designer items, The Outnet is allowing its shoppers to score up to 85 percent off high-end selections, and Saks Fifth Avenue just announced up to 60 percent off select styles from now until July 18th. In other words, you can discover a range of polished finds that will effortlessly round out your office-friendly outfits.

With thousands of items to choose from, I’ve gone ahead and saved you some time by curating a list of 30 picks that have made it to my workwear wishlist. Ahead you’ll find perfectly pleated dresses, floor-sweeping trousers, glossy loafers, and more. You’ll also notice that not a single designer item on this list is over $300.
