Plus, who decides what counts as trendy? Or cheap? Some stores love to tell you that they’re cheap, when they’re merely cheaper. Reducing a $2,000 item to $1,500 is still a bargain, but it’s clearly not cheap.
When compiling this list, price factored highly. If you can’t buy a decent selection of clothes and shoes for $30-$35 in the store then it doesn’t feature in the list.
Style was the other all-important consideration: t-shirt shops, frumpy old-lady wear, celebrity imitators and anything remotely trashy-looking lost its chance to feature on the list. What’s left is a selection of quality stores, with designer-styled clothing at reasonable prices. Oh and guys, don’t be daunted by all the women’s clothes – consider them potential Christmas presents. Time to get shopping!
A’Gaci is a fashionista’s dream, with plenty of cheap clothes for the fashionable girl. Browse by trend, outfit, or the usual pants, accessories, shoes categories. If you shop by trend, you get a page much like a magazine, with links to all the products. They really make it easy to find new bargains!
A’Gaci in fact really surprised me, because it even had some cute and classy homecoming dresses for $30-$35. Take a look!
2. Forever 21
With a whole section dedicated to men, Forever 21 is the most gender-balanced store on the list. At least half of the men’s jackets fell into the $30-$35 range, t-shirts and other smaller items are far cheaper. For girls, prices are just as cheap. You can find incredibly cute dresses, shoes and other items easily for $30 and under.
3. Make Me Chic
Make Me Chic has a great selection of dresses, boots, pants, fancy dress costumes, swimwear and all sorts of women’s clothing. This shop is surprising, since it’s quite difficult to find anything over $30 at all. Even more surprising is that someone with taste is behind it, meaning these bargain-priced clothes are actually quite good looking. Very much worth a look!
Asos is every fashion magazine-lover’s dream come true. Browse through to any interesting headline and you’ll either find a page full of great products to buy, a feature article on fashion or a page of style ideas with suggested products. What’s even better is that “” unlike reading a magazine “” you can click through on these products to a page where you can buy them. Fantastic! Not all of it’s rock-bottom cheap though, so make sure you check out the sales.
5. Cutesy Girl
Cutesy girl is “” sorry guys “” just for the girls, but fits the bill for women’s cheap clothing needs. Navigation on this site is really easy. Under any general section (shoes, apparel, etc.) you can filter by item or size. Then, you can filter further using the sidebar options for specific attributes or brands. This makes for some quick easy shopping. It also seems, no matter how far you narrow down your search there’s still a huge selection of products to choose from.
Bonus Store: Fashion Remix
I nearly didn’t featurebecause so much of the stock is way over the $35 mark. However, it does make it very easy for you to find the cheaper items. Look at what’s on sale, then narrow it down even further by clicking on your favourite designer, colour or other feature. In the sale section, this fantastic designer store can definitely provide cheap fashion for you. Here you’ll find goods for guys too!
If you’re still shopping for that perfect bargain, you can always take a look at eBay and Amazon. Both of these mega-giant retailers feature a great selection of cheap, trendy clothes. Check out the sales!
