Back when I was shopping on a $100 per month budget, my go-to retailer was Old Navy and H&M. They still are today, but now I have other retail brands sprinkled into my current closet.
Theses two retailers offer the best deals where you can get quite a bit of stuff for $100. This was how I built up my wardrobe, little by little. And because majority of my clothes are from Old Navy, there are days when I’m dressed head to toe in it.
However, over the years, there are things I’ve learned not to buy from them:
- Sweaters/Knits. They tend to pill easily from Old Navy and H&M that you’d have to replace them by next season.
- T-Shirts. Since I buy online, it’s often a gamble on the quality of the t-shirt. I’ve gotten see-through shirts from both H&M and Old Navy before so I’d have to wear a tank top underneath them. However, I’ve also bought shirts from both where I didn’t need to.
Things that I love from Old Navy:
- Jeans when they’re on sale for $12.
- Jersey Dresses. So comfortable and super affordable. I like my dresses to the knee so my life hack is to order dresses in Tall that way the length is longer.
