Hello, so basically I am loking for some stores that sell cute, affordable, young/trendy professional work clothes.

I like New York and Company but I wet recently and didn't find anything for me.

By young, I mean Really young, I'm 18 and will start my educational observations this semester so I need nice clothes without breaking bank. Also I use larger sizes, not large enough to shop at plus stores but large enough that some clothes doesn't fit right (specifically arms on button ups) and I am super short, 4'11 so some place that has petite- i know this is a lot of accommodating but I appreciate any answers!

Is there a Macy's anywhere in your area? They'd have the best selection. They have really good sales, too. They have a sale a week, in addition to their seasonal sales. They have a decent selection in petites and other non-standard sizes, including office attire. Nordstrom's might be good, too, if you can catch them when they're having a sale. (January's good for that.)

Try Ann Taylor Loft. They carry petites and the average price point is lower than Ann Taylor. Limited is another store to try.

Try Talbots. Most of their stuff is going to be a bit more mature than you'd like, but they do some cardigans and pants (corderoy & velveteen jeans) in great colors. You can often get the pants on sale for less than $40. I love the cords, they really last.

And they have a petite line.

Talbots looks way too mature in my book. The cuts are too matronly. I find it too old for me now and I am 35.

I agree about the loft and limited. I'd also go to kohls. The ABS section is pretty good and not too old. Also Joe Fresh section at JCPenny. Occasionally appropriate items can be found at express.

H&M, UNIQLO, and Zara are three that I would add to the recommendations. J. Crew can work, too, though the price point is higher than H&M and UNIQLO, more in line with Ann Taylor.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll check some of them out. I actually went into rainbow today and found a ton of cute, professional clothing! It also fit very well!

Dress Barn has some cute items, and sales with loyalty program points. I personally like Carson's (Bon Ton).

Dress Barn is too mature for the OP.
