Clothing brands for a 19-20 year old college student?

I'm looking for some opinions on clothing brands.. PREFERABLY not Aeropostale, American Eagle, or Hollister... I want a more mature style but still fitting to my age. I feel like those brands are more for high school teenagers, but if you think they're still good choices then by all means still suggest them :)

I'm 6'1 180lbs at the moment.. fairly skinny but will be putting on some more muscle over the next several months. If that makes any difference at all?

All I care about is not getting too expensive.. no brands like Affliction where t-shirts are $40+

Thanks! :)

  • Hmmmmm, I would say American Eagle is still good for your age...early twenties, why not introduce yourself to Banana Republic? Shop online sales through the website, you will get affordable college, I'd recommend Kenneth Cole...again pricey but online website sales...I've gotten VERY affordable prices. Why not consignment shops? I've picked up some clothing in very good condition. Some things with tags still attached. There are good consignment shops and not so good ones. Try making it a hobby to scout out the good ones :). And besides "brands" aren't all that important are they? Style isn't a brand. I know it sounds radical but in this's true. I'd recommend the book Afluenza :) just to get you thinking. You'll save money on many things, not just clothing. Hope this helps!

  • I'd have to recommend! They're based in the UK, so their brands and products have a chic European vibe to them. Also, if you live in the states, shipping is free.

    Asos carries some high end designers, but they also have their own line, which is extremely affordable. I can almost guarantee that if you purchase something from asos, you're not going to see another girl wearing it!

    The dress I'm wearing in my profile picture is actually a dress I ordered from the site, and I got tons of compliments on it (it's a striking cobalt blue in person).

    I'll be honest with you-- I shop at Saks and Bergdorfs when they have sales (and sometimes when they don't, hehe), but I'm almost always more pleased with my purchases from If you're looking for clothes that are of comparable style and quality, asos is definitely your store! Topshop is also a great place to check.

    Hope this helps!

    • I just checked the asos website. I'm in looooovveee! clothes in my style AND size range. I am forever thankful to you <3

  • I love Gap. Its a bit pricey but its good quality clothes that look GOOD on you- you'll look well put together.

  • Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, and some of the things at Macy's.

    There men's sections are good. Just stay away from the graphic tees. Those are childish

  • I think guys in Urban Outfitters type clothing are hot. I know the store is expensive, I rarely can afford to shop there, but it's a look I like on guys of that age range.
