Also-pay close attention to how you wash your clothes. Consider handwashing and special detergent to help your clothes keep from fading and stretching/shrinking.
I hope that helps. I was in the same situation when I started my job 4 or 5 years ago. I had to go from wearing casual clothing to tailored suits. (I still miss the casual wear). It was a hefty investment but I still have some of those classic pieces that I can re-accessorize to keep fresh.
Congratulations on the new job!

They are a bit pricey but you get a discount in most places for opening a charge. Ann Taylor loft is probably the least expensive of the list and I have found their clothing to be high quality and will look professional for the office. www.anntaylorloft.com
There are some great pieces in the ann taylor loft sale section...

The best thing to do is get some "staple" pieces, and then you can mix and match - black, gray & brown pants - a black skirt and a gray skirt. White button down shirts are always in style and go with anything. Black jackets are good, or if that's too dressy, get cardigan sweaters. You can get knit shirts in all different colors and dress them up with scarves or jewelry, or put a sweater over it to look more put together. Wear a pair of heels or boots and that will dress you up as well. Target has some cute dresses too - just make sure they aren't more than an inch or 2 above the knee.

Marshalls, Ross and TJ Maxx also have some great stuff.
I honestly don't by many clothes online unless it's to re-purchase something I've gotten from a store.
