I do not know what stores in your town go to but I really like Forever21 and Old Navy. But Walmart and Target are always nice sometimes. Aeropostale also has inexpensive clothes, people just assume it is expensive because the clothes are similar in style to the ones at Hollister and A&F. Goodwill is another name I had got in a shopping guide, you can order from Goodwill stores all over the country. It is similar to ebay but without the high fees that ebay offers.

I do this a lot too, especially when I am traveling in resort areas where the ultra -wealthy have summer homes, the goodwill is to die for! Saks, Armani, Cole Han, Hugo boss,St. Croix, you name it some clothes still have the original tag still on. Just yesterday I brought shoes for $5.00, original price still on them 199.00 Euro.

I have gotten some very cute inexpensive stuff @ goodwill. If you know designers and you can spot them and find them in the store, you will make out like a bandit. Goodwills in more affluent areas tend to have better stuff than the ones in lower class areas.

What size range/age range are you looking for? - You said school so I am guessing late teens early 20's??

I find a wide variety of styles/colors/sizes on ebay - 2nd hand but gently used - and I would rather pay $10.00 dollars for jeans than $30.00.

I myself am the Old Navy queen. Also the Gap since I can get my jeans/pants in short or ankle. I usually shop in Boltons, PayHalf, Century 21, or just local stores in the neighborhood shopping areas. I am also an Ebay fanatic. I have a fetish for DKNY sweaters.. (don't know why). I get them on ebay for 5-20 bucks.

Is there anyone from Meridian that would know where we can get good deals on cheap but styleish clothes?
One suggestions is that it does not have to be cheap but be shopper wise. Wait till the expensive stores have their sales, Ann Taylor Loft, Dillards, Macys.. I only hit the sale racks, 75% off. Quality clothes and cheap prices. Tshirts from the Loft for 9.00? Once the purchase has been made, take extra care of the clothes, wash in Woolite and hang to dry. When dry, iron and hang in the closet, so its ready when you want to wear it. And always buy with mix and match in mind.

If you are looking to save money on clothes I would go with a more industrial look. Cheap clothes are cheap because they loose their "Stay" wrinkle, shrink and fade after a few washings. Probably a waste of money for some one on a tight budget. Clothes made to work in are durable and moderately priced. You don't have dress like a communist or anything , but you could mix in clothes like Dickie's, they come in nice colors. Something else I do is go into nice stores and look in tags to see where they are being made, and buy inexpensive clothes made in the same part of the world
