Best Stores for Teenage Girls (At a Good Price!)

Updated on February 7, 2012

Teenage girls these days are always looking for the best, cheapest, trendiest stores in their malls. The truh is, that kind of store isn't as hard to find as you think! This guide to some of the best stores in American malls is sure to be helpful.

Here are some you might like to try:

  • Forever 21
  • Plato's Closet
  • Charlotte Russe
  • JCPenney
  • Wet Seal

Forever 21 is one of my personal favorites. The prices are all amazing, mostly below $30 for everything, and they have just about anything you could possibly be looking for. You can find jewelry, make-up, T-shirts, blouses, dresses, shoes, skirts, pants, and seasonal items, like fuzzy hats and bikinis. Some of my favorite products from them are their summer-line items, because they are light, and adorable. Try for more information. They run free shipping deals often!

Plato's Closet is another one of the best, if you don't mind second-hand clothes. It is a consignment shop, but from my experience, it only takes the best clothes they can find, and then they resell them at jaw-droppingly low prices. This store is great for buying or selling, because either way you certainly get your money's worth. You simply bring in a bag of everything you no longer want, give it to them when you go into the store, and shop while they sort through it. My favorite part is that when you're done, they can pay you in cash, right on the spot, or you can ask them to put your earnings toward your purchase. The last time I went to this store, I got two Forever 21 tank tops, American Eagle shorts, and DKNY jean shorts all for only $20. The shirts were $5 each, and the shorts were $10 and $5. I'd call that a steal! Go to

Charlotte Russe is... different. Many of their clothes are made with cheap fabric, for an overly expensive price. But every once in a while, you'll be able to find a real treasure. I've been known for my steals of a plaid shirt for $3, a mini dress for $5, and a printed pencil skirt for $6. They run "sales" often, and sell a variety of things. They usually have a whole rack filled JUST with bejeweled things. Their sunglasses are all very cute and at a cheap price, along with their scarves and jewelry. If you're looking for cheap, big and blingy, this is the place for you. Their website is

Yes, JCPenney is a department store. They have a juniors section, along with a section for just about everything else in the world. But their junior department is done well. They have a good sale section, and the Decree shirts are usually very nice. Decree is their Juniors Section brand (Like Target has Mossimo Co., etc.). The best part about this store is that you can find a $10 off a purchase of $10 or more coupon in most Sunday newspapers. That's basically like them giving you $10 for free, and it's too good of a deal to pass up. Check out to look at their juniors section.

The last one I can really be an advocate for is Wet Seal. This store is wonderful! They sell a variety of things, and I will be the first to tell you honestly that many of their regularly-priced items are OVER-priced. I would not ever waste time looking at the clothes they have hanging on the walls, especially if you're looking for a deal. However, their One-cent sale is amazing. Basically, it's BOGO on everything in the section where the sale goes on, and it's on-going. Mostly, the clothes and jewelry etc. on sale aren't anything great. But like many of the other stores, it takes some sorting through the bad things to find a treasure. I've gotten two gorgeous long-sleeved plaid shirts for $14, which is only about $7 each. There's always something to be found on their sale racks. Go to to see for yourself! Note: The one-cent sale only happens in-store.

Of course, if you're willing to spend a little bit more money, I could recommend Hollister, American Eagle, or Abercrombie and Fitch. Their clothes are cute, but for a much higher price than the ones I listed above. If you're on a tight budget, try the ones I suggested. Good luck shopping!
