I usually like K-Mart or a store like T.J. Maxx and Ross. I go to K-Mart mostly for pajama pants and undershirts and Ross for dress shirts. I usually like Van Heusen's wrinkle free varieties. They sell for like, $15. K-Mart has some jeans at really cheap prices, like $10. It's hard finding stuff there because they aren't up to date in fashion like Target is, but when I find one I snatch it up because no place sells jeans as cheap as K-Mart.
I'm more laid back, so I don't usually buy high end stuff. Target is a great place too.
If you go to places like GoodWill your bound to find something real cheap but at the same time, in the brand that you like. and the best thing is you can lie and say you bought it from the stores that sell you fav brands and make people think your spending a lot when in truth your spending next to nothing! hope this helps!
Chelsea Premuim Outlets and The Crossings Outlet are the BEST EVER! name brand close half++ off :D google it and it'll bring you to some websites and you can check in your area. I once got a $128 Juicy Couture jacket for about $30. I love it and its SOOO amazing!
american eagle has good things too. love itt too! <3
aeropostael is good in stores and online!
target ( depends on what styles, but most cute and trendy )
charlotte russse ( if you like that style )
Pac Sun = gooood sales items and cheap
abecrombie // hollister - - - in stores = SUCK but online sales on websites aren't that badd
kmart - cheap but style/ size isn't that good : /
Old navy ( if you can find your size and depends on your own style)
..just a few of my favorites : ) I have like 100000x's more if you want more stores!
I guess it kinda depends on where you live. old navy && aeropostale are nice I guess.. But I LOVE Forever 21, wet seal && Charolette russe! If you have either of those stores go there! Lol if all else fails.. Jus go 2 target or walmart! They have nice stuff!
I don't know if you have a Ross (I talked to a friend in Pennsylvania who had apparently never heard of Ross.)
If you do, though, it's definitely worth checking out. If you're willing to dig through some pretty hideous things, you can find some really adorable clothes there. I heard one girl who worked at Papaya (which has the cutest clothes) mention that she found a dress the store sold in Ross & for half the price.
Honestly thrift stores. Sounds groady, but if you look around there's plenty of really cute vintage things there for cheap. All you have to do is wash them when you get home and its not so bad anymore.
