EXPRESS
As the sixth largest specialty retailer in the US for both men’s and women’s apparel, it should go without saying that everyone loves Express. Moderate pricing and killer sales have locked this store into every budget fashionista’s radar, and with a substantial mix of basics and seasonal trends, the store will always have what we’re looking for. Stock up on denim, printed blouses and office essentials. Sign up for the mailing and/or email lists to get discounts year round, and off nearly every purchase.

TORRID
Torrid can be considered the queen of plus-size fast fashion. With quantity over quality styles similar to those found at a Forever21, this store is great for trend tops and items for a last minute (not to mention inexpensive) night out. Torrid targets the teen and young adult audience so don’t be surprised if the merchandise doesn’t exactly scream classic.
