Here Are 5 Great Places To Find Cute, Inexpensive Clothes
Start writing a post

Luckily, I have a few places that are my go-to's for online shopping (which I consider myself an expert in).

1. ASOS 

I cannot stress this enough, ASOS is one of the greatest places to find anything from your next formal dress, bathing suits for spring break in Delray Beach, to the perfect pair of jeans. The amount of affordable options for all of these categories and beyond is beyond extensive, and around holidays (and a lot of times just when they feel like it), ASOS will have crazy sales, whether it's on new arrivals or 70% already-marked-down clearance items. The world is the shopping-obsessor's oyster with ASOS, and there's even an online marketplace where you can shop for vintage items if you're into that.

2. Zara

I shop at Zara in-store or online depending on my mood (I love doing both, Zara's website is a creative masterpiece and being inside a real Zara that typically means I'm in New York City, which is just a bonus). What I love about Zara the most, however, is how unique their pieces are. Combine that with lower price tags, there's nothing better. Some of my favorite sweaters and cool graphic tees that have been in my closet for years are from Zara, and they always continue to amaze me with their mixture of elevated basics, fun prints and hues, and ability to appear high-end but with affordable costs.

3. Bershka

My friend recently showed me this brand which I believe is under the same ownership of Zara, and this is Bershka. Similar to Zara, this brand (which has a few pop-up locations in major cities) has a variety of affordable (I'm talking twenty-dollar going-out tops) options that you simply cannot pass up. From neon bodysuits to the ugly-yet-acceptable chunky sneakers everyone's been obsessing over this past year (take this from someone who owns them, they're my favorite pair of shoes besides my Air Force Ones, and I have a lot of shoes so that truly is saying something). I promise it will take only one scroll through the "Tees" or "Jackets" section of their site to know that they have everything you've been looking for and then some. To further prove my advocacy for Bershka, I would like to mention that my first order just came in two days ago and the snakeskin booties and leopard-print pinafore dress I ordered are perfect.

4. Nasty Gal

The name makes me cringe, but I get over it once I see the never-ending sixty-percent off sales that Nasty Gal has to offer me. I'm serious, Nasty Gal never stops its sales. All of its new arrivals: sale. Sale stuff? Additional sales on that. I don't know how it even makes money at this point because I have never, ever bought anything full price there. If you do, you're weird, honestly, or you're on the wrong website. Anyways, Nasty Gal has literally everything you could ever want, and the quality is good despite the super-low prices that would make one think otherwise. My favorite polka-dot bodysuit, chunky sneakers, black combat boots, and Metallica (no I can't name one song, shut up) graphic tee are all from Nasty Gal, so I give it my overall stamp of approval.

5. Shopbop

This is where the lines between my kind of "affordable" and someone else's might become slightly blurred. Shopbop is affordable designer rather than the typical affordable crop top from the aforementioned places, but its sales are awesome. Between Alice+Olivia, Free People, Zimmerman, Solid and Striped, and every high-end brand in between, Shopbop's sales are the place to scroll through when you're in the market for a summer dress or bikini that you didn't get for $17.50 at Forever21. Sometimes, it's best to move on from fast-fashion and turn to better-quality brands that will last you forever and alas - are still discounted!

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

29550

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
