We all crave the trendy and hip look that fill the glossy pages of “Teen Vogue” and “Seventeen”. We love the fun and flirty vibe of the outfits showcased but the small print can be frightening. $300 for those jeans?! $450 for that leather jacket? These costs are not doable for the average teen.
Many of us give up, believing that we just don’t have the budget to even dare enter the teen fashion world. We stick to the standard wardrobe pieces (leggings, sweats, that oversized hoodie) and leave it at that. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Recently, Teen Mashup researched various teen friendly stores that you need to check out ! These shops scream your desired look and guess what? They are affordable too !
The store with amazing deals, large selection of styles, fabrics and patterns, accessories, shoes, makeup and of course, constant sales will leave you coming back for more.

Let’s talk body suits: the must-have last season and this one too. Forever 21 has you covered!
