You try to give back whenever you can. You'll always donate your last dollar to a wrap bracelet in need. Offer counsel to those less fashion fortunate. Prevent old ladies from getting trampled during sample sales.

It's about time you get something in return - which is why from now through the end of the year, Maya Bella Boutique is offering 20 percent off the entire store to customers who bring in a new or gently-used work-appropriate item for the non-profit organization Women in Need.

So you can help struggling women re-enter the workforce while making charitable contributions to your own closet. And since you'll be donating parts of your work wardrobe, we pulled together a few office-appropriate outfits to take their place. Don't forget, everything listed will be 20 percent off.

There's nothing more rewarding than making the world a better (looking) place.
