H & M, New York City
Ladies, this is a fantastic store with great clothing and accessories and a very, very reasonable price.
Great fashionable clothing for him or her, you will definitely find something to your liking at this store. They carry a large selection of inexpensive costume jewelry, hair accessories, under garments, bathing suits, and of course great clothes.
I love shopping for the jewelry and their great selection of bras and matching undergarments. If you are on a budge this is a great store to shop in where you will walk away of a bag load of clothing for less than what you would spend in any of the other clothing stores..
What to buy: Fashionable women's clothing for a few dollars.
One of the things that New York has a reputation of is cutting edge fashion. A great place to go get cool clothing items that won't bankrupt you is H & M. Just be careful if you come here with ladies... they won't want to leave.
When H&M, long time Swedish clothes retailer, decided to come to America, they started with New York. They had a poster ad campaign featuring Chloe Sevigne in unbelievably cute clothes, and at the bottom it would say something like "Jacket, $20"
It was a revolution. H&M was New York at its best; great variety and quality for not too much money. The first few months their first store was open, there was a line around the corner. If you went too late in the day, the store would be trashed. Celebrities went there.
Now, H&M is all over the East coast, so the hype has died down, but if you are from the West coast or you have never been there, you should check it out.
What to buy: Cute clothes that are both trendy and comfortable. Business casual and casual skirts, shirts, pants, sweaters, jackets, and accessories.
What to pay: You won't spend a lot for any particular item -- I don't think there is much in the store that costs more than $50. But you will want EVERYTHING you see, so expect to spend between $75-$200.
It's shopping heaven;) cheap stuff at HIGH quality. The first time this shop opened, i was sooo lucky to be there to get the first finds!
The shop has been reinventing itself by selling GOOD stuff with very reasonable prices.
What to buy: Fab finds i got where a laptop bag--that's no sa daddy-ish and boring--but it's convertible--from a backpack to a more serious shoulder bag!
My denim dress and basic white top are my moooossstttt memorable finds as they only cost me $2 for the white top and $20 for my dress.!!!
There are new stuff every season so it's damn sad im alllll the waaaayyy here in manila;)
What to pay: depends on what you want to buy
The best H&M is not in Herald Square or 5th Avenue but on 125th Street! The branch here is much less crowded (meaning it's less likely that your size has sold out) and is bigger than other locations like Soho.
I'm always disheartened to know how a few people still underrate Harlem. Many excuses abound, like it's unsafe. That's a myth, especially on 125th St. It's probably much safer than the very east sections of East Village, and you'll quickly thrive in the convenience of shopping through a fanfare of many other megastores PLUS a score of super bargain outlets and excellent dollar shops. Top that off with amazing hot dogs and mango shake at Papaya King or killer soul food at M&G Diner! mmm!
cheap and too cool for words - must the swedes do everything right?
What to buy: any clothes on the runway this season are guranteed cheaper h&m knockoffs a week later. forget prada (except the cool store on Bway, in the old Guggenheim) - go H&M!!
What to pay: $2-70, skirts average 20-30, shirts, 7-25, and accesories can get super cheap
I love this store! They have a few of them in NYC. The clothes are really cute and the prices are decent. They have clothes for men and women and you're sure to find something unique that no one else in your city has!
This store is full of ANYTHING you could possibly think of. Both women's cothing and men's cothing this store is inexpensive and stylin'! It's probably the only store needed. A great atmosphere you can find anything from, cut pleated miniskirts to huge hoop earrings to stylish work suits all at a VERY affordable price.
What to buy: My current fashion obssesions are pleated mini skirts and flowy dresses and H&M has plenty of them!
What to pay: Anything from $1.90 for a pair of hoop earrings to $50.00 for a stylin jacket.
H&M, short for Hennes & Mauritz, is a Swedish firm that has taken New York by storm and now has several stores around Manahattan, the flagship store is on Fifth Avenue, but I prefer the SoHo branches.
What to buy: Fashion at affordable prices
What to pay: In a lot of cases, a lot less than in other clothing stores.
What can I say??? This must be the BEST thing to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean! A European retailer that has made it big in NYC, H&M has something to offer everyone! The prices are amazing! The clothes are great! I prefer the one on 5th, personally. Basically H&M is a gigantic department store at reduced prices! But, we're not talking Old Navy here....much nicer and trendier than that! :)
What to buy: Clothes and more clothes! You really need to be fashionable in NYC!
What to pay: How about $8 for a tank top? $20 for jeans? $20 for black pants? For $100 you can definitely buy yourself a new outfit for the evening!
Not suprisingly this is also a Swedish Comapny and like it's cousin Ikea believes in stylish looks for unbeatable prices.
Located on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, it is perhaps one of the best places to shop for non-designer clothing in the entire city. The clothes are very trendy and are always up to par with the latest styles and designs so don't fear that your going to get stuck with past season bargains only.
What to buy: They have clothes, accessories for all ages and genders, so just pick what you like.
What to pay: Once again in Ikea fashion, the prices are extremely reasonable: a pair of trendy unpleated men's trousers $20.
