Most sample sales require you to be in New York, preferably at the crack of dawn so you get first dibs on the good stuff. But the Tibi sample sale is very different. It’s a favorite for good reason: It’s one of the few where you can get straight off-the-runway pieces for significantly less without being physically present in NYC. Plus, they’re actually wearable even if you don’t work in a super creative environment. The current sale includes styles from their pre-fall and fall 2016 collections anywhere from 60 to 80 percent off retail prices. It starts today and ends on Thursday but don’t dawdle: Not every piece has tons of sizes left so make those buying decisions quickly.

A smart investment to consider would be a really nice coat. This wool military-inspired style has beautiful gold hardware that makes it look way more expensive than it is. Plus, the silhouette is universally cool and stylish.
Even if you prefer to buy inexpensive sandals, you’ll eventually need a fancier pair to wear to events. These are a great option since they’re 100 percent leather. They also come in blue and black, should the pink be too bright for your taste.
Can you ever have enough work-friendly blouses? Nope. This one is perfect for the spring since it’s made from a light, breathable fabric that isn’t see-through. Plus, the bell sleeves differentiate it from everything else in your closet.
