I'll be studying abroad in France, but plan on visiting all over Europe. I want to do a lot of shopping, but don't want to to end up poor. What are some of your favorite affordable clothing store?

Edit - I'll be going to like the major cities, like Paris, Madrid, Rome, London, etc.

I guess it would be good to know where you are actually going to.

Here the biggest chains would be H&M, Zara and Peek & Cloppenburg. But I don't think it's actually worth it to save money just to spend it there

For the really cheap stuff: kik

Primark, I don't like, it's not only really cheap, clothes look really cheap.

Zara, only worth it in Spain and Portugal, in the rest of Europe the quality is too low for the prices, but for Spain and Portugal Zara have special prices. For the rest of Inditex brands it's the same (Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Pull and Bear and Oysho).

H&M, of those three, the best option.

Then there are other stores with really good prices, but Primark, Zara and H&M are the most popular.

New Look and H&M would be the cheapest, if you're looking for decent quality at an affordable price.
Penneys/Primark are ok for summer tshirts and underwear but never under any circumstances buy a pair of jeans there, terrible fit and terrible quality.

No.
People here fly to NY to shop, so go and figure. All those shops mentioned here are also in NY.
No comparison whatsoever. Rebates, black Fridays and such are not comparable.
Manu..many years ago, London was a mecca for shoppers from all Europe, no more except if you want real quality clothing for gentelmans.
All the outlets here is no way comparable to American/Asian ones,

When I was in Paris the thing I noticed the most was how many people had on Abercrombie and Hollister logos on the street. Stock up on A&F and Hollister stuff and take it with you to sell or trade, haha!
