Talbots
Lands end
Nordstroms
Bloomingdales.

My family and I must be pretty rough on clothes because every thing I buy at lower end stores, I've never been satisfied with the quality. Generally I shop end of season like early this month these stores had killer sales on winter fashions easy 70% off, everyone got new columbia snow jackets for $27 bucks.

I like the Chico's brand Traveler's Knits. The tops might be too old looking for you, but the bottoms might work. They are a drapey non clingy knit that wear like iron, and look so flattering. Keep in mind I am not a fan of the current style of close fit pants with the lower waist lines. So if you like that, then Chico's will not be for you. I wear these with dressy shoes with a heel, not flats. I have the solid colors.

I buy my tops mostly at T.J. Maxx. I wear a lot of long cardigans with the longer drape in the front than the back. I also find lots of traditional button front sweaters at T.J. Maxx. Again, these looks might be too old for you.

I think jewelry is a huge part of outfits. I like Charming Charlie's and Nordstrom clearance. Fun jewelry and scarves really add to the outfit.

I am plus sized so I have also found cute stuff at Nordstrom. I have a couple of shorter sweater dresses from there that i got off the clearance rack. So I would suggest Nordstroms. And a second to JCP. Cute stuff there!

This must be me. I don't do well with clothes from lower end stores. I do Talbots, Nordstrom's and Macy's.

I love to shop at Cato's. Reasonable prices and they get new inventory in every Wednesday. I also like the Chaps brand at Kohl's, but only when on sale.

The only place I buy jeans is Aeropostale. For dresses, I go to Macy's. Shirts usually come from Target, the Disney Store and Old Navy. I also buy skirts, sweaters and pants at Old Navy. Álmost all of my clothes come from the juniors dept. I can rarely find things in the misses dept. that fit right.

Mid 20's can be a tough age. Let's see, I liked Old Navy and H&M and some target for budget stuff. If you want a bit more high end, Land's End/Canvas (conservative) and Eddie Bauer. I am more than 10 years older and like Eddie Bauer even now. They have good clearance sales. Loft is pretty good too. Now that I am getting older, I really like some of the stuff at J.Jill.

I'm not in your age bracket but I pretty much just shop at Macy's. Their sales racks have amazing deals on well-made clothes.

I shop like I breath...so in other words A LOT!!!
I work in a professional office so I buy a lot from both Ann Taylor and her sister store The Loft for work clothes.
I just attended a VIP sale at White House Black Market where for around one grand I bought several pieces from their spring collection, not to mention a few pairs of heels and accessories. Got a semi formal strapless dress to wear to my cousin's August wedding, a few pieces for work and date nights out with my boyfriend.

I also like American Eagle, Gap, and Target for cute weekend wear.

Agree with this! Trying to look nice and professional, with clothes that actually fit! Junior's too immature, or sexy(using the nice word here) especially for the workplace, misses too frumpy (lucky for me my body type fits these better now ) . Best advice at this age is find a couple good quality basics, black pants, black skirt couple of good pairs of jeans etc. and then follow the trends with some nice accessories or cheaper pieces, and then STAY OUT OF THE STORE unless you NEED something! Try organizing your closet too. I find it much easier to find something to wear now that I'm down to one side of the closet with plenty of room to spare. You may even be able to organize a swap with some friends, we used to do a lot of borrowing back then, especially for dates!

I'm 31 and a mom of two - I like NY&Co and Maurice's
Earlier today I purchased a bunch of tops from Boscov's ~ mostly juniors *career tops and fashion tops*
I struggle with shopping ~ for years now most things *for me* are too young or too old.
