We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

2. Anthropologie clearance rack ($)

Anthropologie is a bit much at full price, but you can find amazing pieces on sale for one-half to one-third of the full price.

Good for: whimsical yet restrained feminine flair.


3. ASOS ($$)

With pieces from more than 850 brands ranging from $8 necklaces to $500 designer dresses, British online empire ASOS has something trendy for everyone and every budget. And with everything from sexy Nasty Gal-esque dresses to boyfriend jeans, there's bound to be a style to suit you.

Good for: says one BuzzFeed fan: "Buying like 50 things, getting free shipping, and keeping one."


11. Target ($)

You might forget to shop the women's section at Target when you're busy picking up Brita filters and mailing tape, but scope out the Merona and Mossimo brands and the occasional designer collaboration. Its shoe collection also features a regular rotation of trendy footwear.

Good for: Sometimes you just NEED a $19.99 sundress.

13. Of a Kind ($$$)

Sort of like a curated Etsy for fashion, Of a Kind handpicks up-and-coming designers and features their wares on its site, one at a time. It's definitely a good place to go if you crave something original, as opposed to that H&M frock you'll inevitably see on a dozen other girls.

Good for: that statement top that everyone will ask where it's from.


20. T.J. Maxx/Marshalls ($)

If you haven't shopped at a TJ Maxx or Marshalls, get thee there at once for a huge array of name brands at bargain prices, which is perfect if you're trying to emphasize quality over quantity in your wardrobe. It takes some hunting to find what you want, but it'll be worth it when you score a Missoni skirt for $85 (happened to me!).

Good for: when you don't want to pay more than $29.99 for anything.


24. Buffalo Exchange/Plato's Closet/Crossroads ($)

Clean out your closet and sell your old stuff to these stores and their ilk for a profit. Or, you can shop the racks of curated secondhand goods to score a SUPER-cheap outfit of your own.

Good for: when you're in the mood to scavenge a shoe rack for that one pair of Marc Jacobs flats for !!! $45 !!!
