For budget fashion, high street and online retailer “Forever 21” is hard to beat. They hold a great range of apparel for young women at very low prices. You do need to be a little choosy when you shop at Forever 21; some of their pieces are not especially durable. As always, it’s a case of “you get what you pay for.” Perhaps Forever 21’s biggest strength is in its huge range of affordable accessories, earrings in particular. Be a little wary of the footwear in the high street stores. The shoes do look nice but quality is questionable. If you want to buy shoes from Forever 21, the website has a better range. For cheap and trendy denim apparel though, Forever 21 has to be one of the best outlets in the US.

If you’re looking for somewhere to buy new clothes for the office, Banana Republic might be a good place to try, especially if you want to save some money. Go shopping for your work blazers, tops and pants or skirts on a Monday. Banana republic marks many items down in price after the rush of weekend shopping is over. Look carefully at the price tags too. If a price tag ends in a 9, for example $8.99, there’s a good chance that item will be marked down even further if you hold on for a day or so. On the other hand, a price ending with 7, e.g. $5.57, it has hit rock bottom, so you better buy the item right away if you want it.
If you do like to shop at Banana Republic, be sure to get on their mailing list. They regularly send out coupons for up to 50% savings on their normal purchase prices. While not the trendiest store in the world for young women, Banana Republic is still a great store at which to shop for more conventional fashion.
