But not all of it at once... Here are five affordable places to shop for the new back-to-school season:
I know, Reformation isn't usually affordable for the typical college student, but they're having a SALE (up to 50% off)! I shopped this sale last year and I got a bunch of amazing pieces for, like, Zara prices. Take full advantage and buy all the back-to-school dresses and jeans your bank account can handle.
Zara is always, always a winner when it comes to finding affordable pieces that will last forever. Not to mention Zara is also still having a sale online after having a giant store-wide sale that lasted practically the entire summer. Get on it! There's still a ton of pieces left!
3. Princess Polly
I am currently OBSESSED with Australian boutique Princess Polly's new arrivals, especially this jacket and this jacket (which just came in the mail, hehe). Princess Polly is never not on trend nor are they ever out-of-reach when it comes to pricing. They even have a new USA website so shipping no longer takes forever (beforehand everything came from Australia and shipping costs were super expensive).
4. Nasty Gal
Nasty Gal is the epitome of affordable fashion. Not only is nothing ever NOT on sale (those who shop there religiously know), they offer an even more reduced price with their student discount. Seriously, nothing is ever full price for this brand. Their new arrivals are awesome, ranging from over-sized denim jackets to sweaters in bright hues. Check them out!
Again, not typically an affordable website to go as a college student (unless you're super lucky, then I envy you), but Shopbop sale is like a treasure chest of hidden pieces with amazing prices. I'm always checking back to their sale section once I get an email from them saying they've added new stuff. I just got this awesome bag and this gorgeous dress all for under eighty dollars! Can you believe it? Because I can't. I'm telling you, Shopbop sale is my favorite website to go to when I'm not searching for anything in particular, you never know what you're going to find!
