These retailers have the most stylish options around.
It’s hard to argue with a classic: you've likely heard of of many of these stores, maybe even shopped at them. They've been around for a while—for good reason. They've built their brands with an eye toward creating fun, stylish clothes and accessories for women of all shapes and sizes, and in return, their customers have become a loyal following, trusting these brands when they need to find not just the perfect dress (or jeans, or top), but also the perfect fit. Whether you're looking for a cocktail frock for a night out on the town, or your next go-to pair of boyfriend jeans for the weekend, here's what you can count on these stores for.
Best for: Contemporary day-to-night essentials
Beyond their well-known and coveted shoe collections, Vince Camuto also has a loyal following for their Plus apparel. The fashion-forward pieces include dresses that easily transition from desk-to-dinner, flowy blouses that can be worn for date night and the office, and seasonal buys that will instantly update a tired wardrobe. Prices start at $69 for blouses and cap off at $169 for dresses.
Best for: Easy, trendy casualwear
A classic family-favorite is known for its trendy casual-wear and reasonable prices, Old Navy's offerings also include stylish weekend essentials and everyday staples in size 16 to 30, like the perfect summer eyelet tee or printed maxi dress. Best of all? Everything is priced below $60.
Best for: Designer for less
With two ongoing designer collaborations and an exclusive runway-inspired collection, 6th & Lane, Lane Bryant has mastered designer clothing at an affordable price.
