As college students, it is easy to fall into a pattern of never buying new clothes at school because everything seems so expensive. However, what most students do not know about are the student discounts that many stores close to campus offer in stores and online. Here are some of the stores that try to help students out in remaining fashionable while also being able to save.
Amazon.com: Students can get free two-day shipping for six months, plus discounted Prime and other deals. Amazon is good for anything you might need, but they also have their own clothing line, Amazon Fashion, so this student offer could come in handy for clothing purchases.
J. Crew: 15 percent discount in stores when you show your school ID. J. Crew currently has amazing fall and winter styles in stock for both men and women, including the Perfect Winter Parka, which looks super cozy and warm.
Topshop: Students get 10 percent off online and in store, and Topshop genuinely has every kind of style one could ask for. It is extremely trendy and has shoes, accessories and beauty products that this discount can be used for.
Toms: Students get free shipping on all orders and they’ll donate a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair you buy. Not only do you get a deal for yourself, but purchasing a pair of Toms is more enticing because you get to help give a young child a cute pair of shoes.
Banana Republic: Take 15 percent off your full-priced purchase at Banana Republic stores with your valid student ID. Banana Republic is the perfect store to purchase clothing for a job or internship, and with a 15 percent discount, you will actually want to spend money on work clothes.
ASOS: Students enjoy 10 percent off all full-priced ASOS products in store or online, or students can shop ASOS through StudentRate.com to get free shipping on a clothing order. My favorite items from ASOS are their dresses, because I feel that they have super chic and fashionable dresses for every occasion.
Charlotte Russe: At participating Charlotte Russe locations, students can get 10 percent off all merchandise, so stock up on my personal favorite go-to items from Charlotte Russe, including “going out outfits” and flannels.
Club Monaco: Show your student ID to save 15 percent to 20 percent at store locations. While Club Monaco is definitely on the expensive side, they do have some great sweater options for the fall and winter seasons.
Kate Spade: 15 percent discount when you show your student ID. While I personally would use my discount on Kate Spade’s accessories and jewelry, the company also has great clothing options, especially as the weather gets colder. I am a sucker for comfortable sweaters, which Kate Spade definitely has.
Steve Madden: 10 percent off in store with your valid ID. I may be biased because Steve Madden is my favorite shoe company, but this is definitely the place I was most enthusiastic to find out that offered a student discount. I buy a majority of my shoes from Steve Madden and I would recommend that anyone who has never shopped here definitely take advantage of that student discount and buy a great pair of shoes.
ModCloth: Save 15 percent at ModCloth when you register. ModCloth offers great vintage looks as well as plenty of Christmas sweaters for anyone who has begun planning what to wear to Midnight Breakfast.
One piece of advice I would offer is to always ask if a clothing store has a student discount, because it never hurts to ask and be a more informed shopper.
