Affordable Fashion

By Guest Author Janky Patel, New York

Keeping up with fashion trends can be fun especially when trying new styles and mixing and matching accessories. The one thing that gets frustrating is dealing with the cost and trying not to break the bank when looking your best. Finding bargain deals while shopping is my top mission. I put together a list of where you can stick to stylish trends and not pay absurd prices.

  • Forever 21: This is probably one of the best places to find trendy affordable fashion items both in store and online. Items that I would definitely look into at Forever 21 include jewellery hats, and dresses.  You don’t even have to be restricted to just the sales since most of Forever 21’s regular priced items are pretty affordable. I would skip purchasing shoes here though; they are not great quality and can actually hurt your feet after a long work day or night out.
  • H&M: This store is always a win-win especially trying to style outfits for work. If you carefully sort through H&M’s sales, you will find awesome deals for work outfits. Several items that you can always find great affordable deals are pencil skirts and blouses. I own about 5 different pencil skirts from H&M in various colors since they fit so well and feel really comfortable (except for days I over eat, LOL).
  • Aldo: Shoes + bags, are a must. Aldo does a great job in providing really trendy shoes and bags. I am always amazed how closely they keep up with current trends. Most merchandise is overpriced, but wait for a sale or clearance and then purchase.
  • Zara: Want a high-end New York look without paying thousands of dollars? I love Zara for the designer runway look for somewhat affordable prices. I view winter coats as investment pieces, and would recommend paying the price at Zara. Dresses are great here too since you get a simple runway look. Only purchase dresses during Zara’s holiday sales or clearances.

To review, finding trendy affordable fashion requires you to hunt. If you are at the right place, at the right time, you will score some awesome deals.

  • Forever 21: YES to jewellery hats, and dresses. NO to shoes.
  • H&M: YES to skirts, blouses, blazers, and dresses.
  • Aldo: YES to shoes, hand bags, wallets, and jewellery. NO to paying full price for these items.
  • Zara: YES to coats and dresses. NO to paying full price on dresses– wait until holiday sales.

    I go to see daily some web sites and information sites to read posts, but this blog gives
    quality based articles.

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will
    be a lot more useful than ever before.

    It’s in fact very difficult in this busy life to listen news on TV, thus I simply use the web for that reason, and obtain the most up-to-date information.|

    Aldo had always been my favourite choice for shoes and it’s pretty unfortunate that you can buy Aldo online only in majorbrands site. I am into online shopping and wish I could find it in more places. Fortunately, Zara and Forever 21 don’t have that problem. Haven’t tried H&M till now. Maybe I should give it a tryAnd while we are talking about affordable fashion, have a look at the blog I write on Street Fashion at ScrapeHere blog
