It just so happens to be back-to-school prep month, a time when retailers are also clearing out summer merch for fall arrivals. While big box stores like H&M and Forever 21 offer fast fashion deals on the reg, there are also plenty of other options for budget-strapped shoppers looking to score a full look for under $100. (Let's not forget LA's vintage shops and outlet emporiums, too).
From Uniqlo's Japanese alternative to American Apparel's basics to Saks Off Fifth's newest label-filled mecca to a slew of trendy SoCal chainlets, we've rounded up 10 stellar stores for wallet-friendly fashion. If you're willing to share your secrets, feel free to chime in below in the comments.
