Since I shared my favorite winter brands in yesterday’s post, I wanted change it up today with my favorite fast fashion retailers – and the pieces I like to buy from each one. As I’m sure you know, my favorite kinds of outfits are those that incorporate high and low brands. So, I always try to shop at a mix of luxury and fast fashion retailers, that way my wardrobe has a good blend of trendy pieces, basics, and classic staples. It’s easy to know which items are missing from your wardrobe, but knowing where to buy them can be difficult. Luckily, there are several options that make it possible to score great pieces even when you’re on a budget. If you’ve ever wondered where to shop for affordable fashion, I’m spilling all the details in today’s post.
Mango Sweater (wearing an XS – worn as a dress)
Mango is a Spanish retailer known for its selection of classic silhouettes and smart tailoring. I love that the workwear pieces look so professional for an office setting, but they can also be dressed down on the weekend. If you’re ever in need of affordable jeans that fit like a glove, they also make amazing denim pieces. Mango is also spot-on with trends, especially when it comes to shoes – and they’re reasonably priced too.
H&M Teddy Bear Coat (wearing an XS)
I shopped at H&M a ton this past year because their designs are always eye-catching – and the fit is great for petite frames. Some of my favorite pieces to shop for here are statement tops, sweaters, and coats. If there’s ever a trendy outerwear piece I want to get my hands on, I know I can trust H&M to offer an affordable version – like this faux fur coat.
H&M Moto Jacket (sold out, similar here)
Urban Outfitters has become a go-to stop for affordable accessories that really complete an outfit – for instance, jewelry and hats. They have such a great hat selection and I almost always find what I’m looking for. You also can’t go wrong with casual feminine dresses or denim pieces. The other thing I love about Urban Outfitters is that they do carry slightly more expensive brands like Levi’s, Finders Keepers, and DL1961.
Jocelyn Feather Jacket (wearing a P/S0
Another favorite fast fashion brand of mine is Asos since they have a massive selection of affordable brands, like Boohoo, Missguided, Bershka. This makes it so easy to buy multiple pieces at once. The items I frequently purchase from here are denim jackets, statement tops, and basics. Asos is also a great place to look for trendy coats, especially faux fur and colored options.
Every now and then, I can score some amazing finds at Forever21 that range anywhere from casual day dresses to swimsuit cover-ups to lightweight knits. Everything from here is so affordable and great for daily wear.
Topshop Camel Coat (similar here and here)
Topshop is an all-around great retailer for chic, trendy pieces that are high in quality. I tend to buy most of my Topshop pieces from Nordstrom because I’m always browsing their site and they have quick shipping and easy returns. I find that many of Topshop’s coats and jackets look and feel more expensive than they actually are. I’m also a big fan of their distressed skinny jeans, which are comparable to higher end brands. I always opt for the Jamie fit and I usually size up to a 25 (normally a 24) since they run small.
