J.Crew

J.Crew

The Pros: Beautiful clothes, well-made, great fit, something for everyone.
The Cons: Sometimes we wish it wasn’t so girly. (But we guess that’s what sister store Madewell is for.)

COS

COS

The Pros: Seriously perfect clothes that you will want regardless of the label sewn inside, from molded shoulder suits to perfectly worn in jeans to simple lingerie.
The Cons: Not available in the US.

4

Zara

Zara

The Pros: Great clothes and shoes, great quality, great design.
The Cons: Knock-offs aplenty. Still no e-commerce for US customers, although sources say that it will happen over the next year.

5

Uniqlo

Uniqlo

The Pros: Great men’s section: jeans, blazers, suits, and button downs all look way more expensive than they are. +J, Jil Sander’s line for the store, is affordable minimalism at its best. We’ve also loved their collabs with Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Costello Tagliapietra and more.

H&M

H&M

The Pros: Lanvin x H&M. Need we say more?
The Cons: There are some really great pieces amidst a ton of not-so-great pieces.

Topshop

The Pros: Amazing collaborations with the likes of Christopher Kane and Preen; perfect party dresses.
The Cons: It’s way more expensive in the US than it is in the UK due to exchange rates and shipping. And everything is so trendy that at some point you

Urban Outfitters

The Pros: Incredible in-house collection that are just directional enough; collaborations with Steven Alan, Corpus, Paul & Joe, and more.
The Cons: Too many designer knockoffs; diffusion collections available in Europe are not usually available in the US.

Gap

Gap

The Pros: A fantastic collaboration with Pierre Hardy and soon, Valentino; creative director Patrick Robinson, who has been working his butt off to revive the label, which struggled in the aughts. Also, great fitting pants.
The Cons: Too many of the directional pieces get dropped before Robinson’s collection hits the floors. The stores are also poorly

American Apparel

The Pros: Unique basics available season after season; affordable.
The Cons: Creepy boss has ruined the business; sizing is sometimes funky.

Weekday

Weekday

The Pros: Cool, affordable clothes mixed in with pricier brands that are still within reach.
The Cons: Core collection doesn’t offer the best fit; limited availability.
