Budget Fashionistas, Listen Up!
Are you the type who wants to be on trend every season but you don't have the unlimited funds to do so? Do you want to try out new looks without spending your all your money? Or do you try not to spend a lot of money on clothes in general? If your answer is yes to any of the above, then you need to shop around for good deals. There may be a few pieces in your wardrobe that require a splurge, but for everything else try looking at these websites for your fashion fix on a budget.
UNIQLO is a Japan-based company that's similar to H&M. With great basics as well as a fantastic outerwear department, UNIQLO should be one of the places you browse. With more and more brick-and-mortar stores popping up in the U.S., you now have the option to shop these great deals in person.
If wedding season finds you with several special occasions to attend and nothing to wear, then Lulus might be the place for you. With tons of cute dresses at reasonable prices, you can be the belle of the ball (without overshadowing the bride, of course). They don't just sell dresses, though, and offer a good selection of clothes for any occasion in addition to a fabulous array of well-priced shoes.
Looking for great items that none of your friends might find? Then you need to check out Stylenanda. This Korea-based website has all of your basics, plus lots of accessories and makeup for great prices. They ship to over 100 countries and are one of the biggest online retailers in Korea.
Dorothy Perkins is one retailer that knows good fashion never goes out of style—they've been dressing the ladies of the U.K. for over 90 years. The brand offers U.S. sizes 2 to 18, as well as a range of collections including Tall, Petite, Maternity, Lingerie, Shoes and Accessories. Plus, it's all affordable and super adorable.
Zady doesn't claim to have the lowest prices, but they do strive to build a company that reduces the huge amount of waste that the fashion industry produces. If your clothes are made well, then they don't fall apart as quickly, which actually saves you money in the long run. They tell you exactly where each piece of your clothing comes from, and by supporting this company you can feel good that you're making a difference in the world.
Another website based in the U.K., Boohoo offers thousands of styles for women, men and kids, so you can buy affordable and chic clothes for your whole family. They've won numerous awards for being one of the best online retailers, so you know you're getting a good shopping experience while also grabbing a great deal.
You've obviously heard of Forever 21, and maybe you've shopped there too, but it's on this list for a good reason—you can find cool, trendy clothes for very little cash here. One of the major complaints about Forever 21's clothes is they're cheaply made, which may be why they're so inexpensive. In our experience, you might get the occasional "dud," but overall Forever 21 is great for basics, trying new trends without breaking the bank, and when you need something cute for a date or interview but don't have the funds to get something fancier.
If you're looking for cheap clothes, ClothingUnder10.com does not disappoint. The website has its name for a reason—almost all the clothes are under $10. The items are not what you would see Beyonce or Kim Kardashian wearing, but the website has solid pieces that would be great for any wardrobe. Plus, the clothes are $10...and that's a pretty great deal in anyone's book.

The Utah-based company has several brick-and-mortar stores not only in Utah but also in Idaho, as well as its full-service online retail operation. You'll look great in these cute and functional clothes, and your wallet will thank you too.
