Attention, Kmart shoppers: Housewares and electronics aren’t all you’ll find in one of the nation’s largest discount chains. With styles ranging from perfect-for-layering tees to color-saturated trenches, Kmart is a one-stop shop for time-pressed fashionistas. Reward yourself for all of your dieting and head over to Kmart.
If copping cool-girl attitude is your aim, Express is the store for you. Score Saturday afternoon staples like fine-knit cardigans, as well as star-worthy evening separates. (Then, on your way home before you grab dinner, stop off at Payless for hip, wallet-friendly footwear.)
“Expect great things” is the slogan of this budget behemoth—and I always do! Look to Kohl’s for everything from trend-driven Daisy Fuentes separates to gently priced designer pieces, like elegant sheath-style cocktail dresses from Simply Vera Vera Wang.
