We love you, Zara and H&M, and we know you’re great. But sometimes it can be nice to discover new hidden gems in order to freshen up your wardrobe and add more personality to your looks. We know that as a 20-something, budget is always top of mind, but so is style. We get you want to shop everything from trendy purses to beautiful event-friendly dresses for a fraction of that luxury-label price.
Our favorite part about the well-thought-out list we’ve curated ahead is that each store speaks to a certain type of person. If you’re a minimalist seeking clean lines and well-tailored suiting, you’ll want to look straight to COS and The Frankie Shop. Meanwhile, Simonett, Miaou, and Source Unknown speak to someone who prefers bold, avant-garde pieces that will certainly get noticed (think: exaggerated sleeves, cutout sweaters, and printed corsets).
Ahead, you’ll find a full breakdown of 14 different shopping destinations. We’ve included exactly what you need to know about price point, so your wallet knows what it’s getting into as soon as you click over to the site. In other words: don’t say we didn’t warn you when you scope out these brands, instantly add everything to your cart, then have a look at your total. *Wink, wink*
