You've heard this one before: dress for the job you want. Whether you're just starting out in the world of work, angling for a new position or completely happy with your job, it makes perfect sense to present yourself well at the workplace. Feeling stuck in a rut and ready to upgrade your workday duds for the new season? Great! Whatever your budget, there's a piece (or several) that will make you look promotion-ready (or just more than qualified for your current position).
