My Favorite Summer '18 Stores
Little bit about me: I'm obsessive and check my favorite stores on a daily basis when I wake up in the morning. Something about seeing a ton of new styles every morning just makes me happy.... confessions of a shopaholic? You're right. Here are the stores that I've been checking pretty much on a daily basis.
ASOS has always been a favorite of mine and they literally never let me down. They carry pretty much everything that I could want in a store ranging from simple tops/dresses to more upscale pieces for a night out. They carry a ton of amazing European brands that don't have stores in the US as well! I would say ASOS has more of a sophisticated style compared to the other stores I'll be mentioning.
I have definitely heard of Mango before, but really discovered it this summer when I was shopping in Europe. These pieces come straight off the European runway for a smaller portion of the price. Mango is stocked with a ton of trendy summer pieces right now and at some really great price points.
Another post-Europe trip favorite store. I've purchased pieces from Bershka through ASOS before, but when I saw the actual store in Europe my life was changed (dramatic, I know). Their prices are unreal for the on-trend items that they carry. I've been specifically loving their denim, personally I find the fit to be amazing.
This one is a given, of course. Zara has been one of my favorite go-to stores for years now and I don't see that changing any time soon. Zara is constantly refreshing their styles to make sure every piece is on-trend and unique. OH and their seasonal sale is going on right now aka you can buy things for less than triple what you would have paid for it.
This store has more of a boutique feel. They have a ton of different trendy styles and at a great price. Isabelle's Cabinet has a California summer vibe in my opinion.
This has to be one of my favorite online stores — if you just look at the styles right now you'll understand why. Princess Polly is always on top, if not ahead, of the trend and they carry different designers like I.AM.GIA, MINKPINK, For Love and Lemons, and more.
Nasty Gal always has something extremely unique on their website and in their new arrivals. I love checking what's trending on Nasty Gal every morning. Their style is super bold and vintage-inspired - they also usually always have 50% off their styles!
And lastly we come to Forever21. I can always count on this store to have a dupe of a more expensive piece that I've been eyeing. If I'm really trying to shop for something specific and don't want to put a dent in my bank account, this is always my go-to. Most of the times I get the most compliments on my clothes from Forever21 over more expensive stores, weird right?
