Most Popular Clothing Stores for Teens
When it comes time to buy some new clothes, these are the go-to shopping destinations for teens. You can count on these stores to offer wide selections of both stylish clothing, as well as basics that are essential to any wardrobe.
Lulus is an online store that offers cute, feminine designs at an affordable price point, and has arguably one of the best selection of dresses out of this whole list!
If you have an occasion like a dance or prom, graduation, or any other event where you need to dress up, Lulus should be one of the first stores you check out to find the perfect dress.
While Lulus is particularly known for its dress selection, it also has everything from denim to shoes and accessories. Plus, in addition to their own brand of clothing, Lulus also sells other popular brands like Levi’s, Free People, and Billabong.
2. Urban Outfitters
If you’re looking for cool, vintage-inspired clothing that is unique, Urban Outfitters is for you.
Not only do they offer new clothing that takes inspiration from vintage styles, but they also re-work pieces in their Urban Renewal Recycled line which features up-cycled pieces that are updated by hand and all totally unique, plus a vintage line with one-of-a-kind finds.
Urban Outfitters is also one of the best places to find oversized band tees and funky accessories.
H&M has something for everyone, but their “Divided” section is especially perfect for teens, with trendy and budget-friendly designs that include Y2K-inspired items, band tees, and festival-ready pieces. You can find crop tops as low as $6!
I could spend hours browsing the ASOS website – they have a huge selection of trendy styles from many brands you probably won’t find at your local mall. Their own ASOS brands are available in over 30 sizes, with the goal of helping you find your perfect fit and a commitment to body positivity.
To help you narrow down your clothing search, here are some of the best clothing brands for teens to check out at ASOS: Topshop, COLLUSION, Missguided, Bershka, New Look, Kendall + Kylie, and Crooked Tongues.
Do you wish there was a store that always ran sales and always added new products to their site? Well, let me introduce you to PrettyLittleThing.
PLT almost always is running a sale or offering a massive discount code, and adds new styles to their website daily. At PLT you’ll find ultra-trendy pieces, as well as loungewear and basics like joggers, t-shirts, and bodysuits. They also offer a variety of sizing and fit options including plus size, tall, petite, and shape.
Missguided is similar to PLT, with freshly updated styles and always running a killer sale. You can score the trendiest clothing items at up to 70% off and pick from a variety of sizes and fits (plus size, tall, and petite).
No matter the season or your style, you’re practically guaranteed to find something you love at this store.
Pacsun (which stands for “Pacific Sunwear”) is the ultimate destination for cool, beachy clothing that has the laid-back vibe of its California roots.
Offering products that “all youth can express themselves through,” PacSun has a Unisex line of clothing (in addition to Men’s and Women’s) curated without a specific gender in mind.
It’s also one of our favorite stores to shop at for affordable swimwear, with tons of styles that were made for sunny days at the beach.
8. Forever 21
Forever 21 is a teen’s heaven when it comes to shopping. It’s cute, it’s affordable, and it’s constantly updating its merchandise to reflect the current trends.
With already-low prices and frequent sales, Forever 21 is a no-brainer when it comes to shopping.
9. Cotton On
Originating in Australia, this retailer aims to bring the Aussie lifestyle to the world by offering casual, cool clothing at an accessible price point. CottonOn is a great spot to buy basics at, along with swimwear and activewear.
Think of Bershka as Zara’s younger sister. Owned by the same brand, Bershka is young, hip, and a bit more affordable than Zara. Be sure to check out their stylish shoes and accessories, as well.
11. Abercrombie & Fitch
Abercrombie & Fitch has had a MAJOR glow-up in recent years. No longer the preppy, logo-covered clothing of the past – Abercrombie now offers elevated basics and chic pieces that are right on-trend.
Most notably, their vast selection of denim with various fits (like their Curve Love collection), cuts, and washes ensure that you’ll find the perfect-fitting jeans.
Hollister makes “SoCal inspired clothing” that will make you feel like you’re in sunny Southern California, and like Abercrombie, they have a great denim selection. Hollister’s goal is to help teens feel confident and comfortable with their clothing, including a Pride Collection.
You can feel good shopping at Hollister knowing they have a commitment to sustainability, and in 2020, founded the first-ever World Teen Mental Health Day to destigmatize teen mental health and wellness.
Shopping at a Francesca’s store feels like you’re shopping in your BFF’s closet. Filled with sweet, feminine items, you can find adorable dresses, eye-catching jewelry, and the cutest gifts for your friends (or yourself).

17. Gap & Gap Teen
Did you know that Gap has an entire line of clothing just for teens? Made for “the generation moving us forward,” this laid-back collection is designed with teen body proportions in mind and with an effort to reduce water and waste.
18. Brandy Melville
Brandy Melville‘s aesthetic is beloved by cool girls who know the importance of good basics and perfectly-oversized graphic tees. Whether you’re looking for a simple tank top or a vintage-inspired t-shirt, Brandy Melville’s got you covered.
The only thing we don’t love about Brandy is that their size range is not inclusive — they pretty much only carry XS, S, M, and L. It’s not a good place to shop if you are outside of that size range.
