The Top 8 Fashion Brands Millennials Love
April 28, 2016 Francine Jones 0 Comments
For newly minted adults, there will never again be a time where there is so much freedom in their lives, and so much identity to explore. Because of this, it’s no surprise millennials will place so much emphasis on experimenting with and experiencing fashion. That being said, a couple of staple trends have emerged, and with it some reliably visited retailers.
Fueled by the recent rise of the Athleisure trend, function and sportiness are essential in any 20-something’s complete wardrobe. Nike is the perfect way to achieve a polished look while still remaining comfortable, even if you’re sweating it out in the gym. Nike’s prominence can be clearly seen in the meteoric rise of the Free sneaker.
Feminine with just the right amount of quirkiness, Modcloth is the perfect means for a young adult to express a unique and eye-catching fashion sense.
Being an adult but still young pulls you in two directions. A young adult might want to pull their wardrobe in a more mature direction, yet still be drawn to the fun and slightly risqué. In a situation such as this, Topshop is the perfect balance. For someone transitioning into adulthood, this is just what the doctor ordered.
4. Forever 21
This comes as a surprise to no one, but this store cannot be omitted. For a young adult just starting their career, or particularly a college student, having access to in-style, yet extremely cheap basics is a godsend.
A fantastic alternative to Forever 21 with a fast-growing popularity is Romwe. A Chinese online-only fast-fashion retailer, Romwe offers a vast selection with all different styles, from lacy dresses to graphic T-shirts. A Romwe-wearer is guaranteed to be wearing something no one else has, since their pieces aren’t too accessible in the U.S.
Speaking of Asian retailers, Uniqlo has also shown a huge rise in popularity recently. For the smarter young shoppers with a bit more cash to spare, Uniqlo is a great place to stock up on high quality basics.
7. Brandy Melville
On the opposite end, Brandy Melville brings us an all-American West Coast aesthetic. Brandy Melville is an irresistible way to add some carefree classic feel to a young adult’s wardrobe.
8. Free People
It’s considered imperative that every young adult have some adventures. Whether it’s Spring or Summer Break, or just the weekend, parties, road trips, and music festivals are inevitably participated in. Free People is the goto place to stock up on flowy festival gear.
