Every teen knows how important fashion is; but where can you find the coolest outfits for the trendiest wardrobe possible? We’ve come up with a must-know list of the 7 absolute BEST stores for teens- all lined from front to back with trendy clothes and stylish fashions that stay with the times.
If you are a teen girl, you’ve heard of Forever 21; it’s like a rule or something! Forever 21 has a huge variety of clothing to choose from, all sporting a high-end fashion look for half the price. It’s a rather inexpensive place to shop but you can find all the trendiest garments from tops to bottoms, dresses to undergarments. They even have cute shoes to match!
American Apparel is definitely one of the hottest stores for teens. Why? Because they focus on offer cool and casual clothing for both boys and girls. They offer a variety of trendy garments and, much like Forever 21, are rather inexpensive with their pricing. The difference with this store is they focus much more on relaxation and cute trends than high-end designs, which a lot of teens prefer.
So you know where to get high-end fashions on the low, and you know where to get cool and casual clothing for a cheap price. But what about the teens out there who prefer a quirky, edgy fashion? Hot Topic is your answer for all things wild and crazy. From neon skirts to band tees, gothic inspired dresses to piercing jewelry, they have it all. They’re pricing is a bit on the steeper side, but only because their styles are more intricate and have a unique look to them. Seriously, there’s no better place to shop for ‘gothic’ and edgy fashions than Hot Topic.
We’ve talked a lot about where to get clothing, but what about accessories to match? Well, as ANY teen or young adult would know, the best place to go is CLAIRE’S! We’ve been in love with this adorable store since we were 5 or 6 years old, and we will continue to love it well into our twenties. They offer such a cute and flirty assortment of accessories and jewelry to match any style, and the prices are good too. If you’re in the market for some adorable accessories, Claire’s is your answer; there’s NO question about it.
Bohemian style, also known as ‘boho’, is one of the biggest style trends right now. And if you’re looking for the chicest, most glamorous boho clothing, then you need to check out Free People. They have a HUGE selection of ‘boho-chic’ apparel, some sporting a vintage appeal that caters to plenty of teens. Their prices are steep, but their clothing is made incredibly well and will last you for years.
Charming styles and trendy garments are easily found at Charlotte Russe! And the best part is, they all come with an inexpensive price tag to match. Charlotte Russe focuses on offering teens and young women with fashions you might see on the runway, from skinny jeans to blazers, high heels to flirty dresses. They have a HUGE variety of clothing to choose from and I promise you, you won’t walk out of this store without a bag full of goodies in your hand. It’s very similar to Forever 21, although I find their style to be a bit more classy and sophisticated.
Abercrombie & Fitch
Calling ALL preppy teens! If you’re known in school as a ‘prep’, then you know Abercrombie & Fitch. They have a wide selection of prep-inspired clothing to choose from, offering you with an extremely polished yet casual style that could only suit the preppiest of girls and boys. Their pricing is mid-range, not overly expensive but not cheap either. You will typically find shirts sporting the “A&E” logo, as well as cute (and very high quality) jeans, shorts, and more.
If you are a teen, do you shop at any of these stores? If so, which ones are your favorite? I’m sure there’s plenty of ‘teen stores’ not mentioned on this list that you absolutely adore, and we’d love to hear which stores are YOUR favorite!
