Where to buy cute clothes for juniors? The short answer is usually in department stores. Junior clothing is made typically for teen girls whose measurements are smaller than women's. Many young women also fall in the junior category, with odd-numbered sizes ranging from 1 to 17. Junior Plus size clothing is also made today, which is usually shown on labels as a junior size with an X beside it.
Sears and J.C. Penney's have been selling junior clothing for decades, as has Macy's. Cute styles in junior sizes can be found in all these department stores, as well as at discount department stores, such as Walmart, KMart and Target. Kohls, while not a discount department store, is closer to the mid-range department store like J.C. Penney's and Sears. Nordstrom has a cute line of junior clothing. Regional department stores, such as Belk in some states in the southern United States, carries cute clothes for juniors.
Junior clothing cannot be found everywhere. For example, Old Navy, which is known for carrying styles that are popular with the younger set, does not carry junior sizes. Nor can you find them at Old Navy's sister stores, the Gap and Banana Republic. You won't find junior sizes at American Eagle Outfitters, either, or at Fashion Bug or Coldwater Creek or Abercrombie and Fitch. Chico's has a unique system for sizing all its own.
Aeropostale is a store that caters specifically to juniors and carries only junior sizes. Love Culture is another chain of stores targeting only young women who wear junior sizes. The designs of the clothing in these stores and others like them are more youthful and what the junior fashionistas are looking for.
Dresses are short, form hugging and made in hip colors and styles, such as the convertible lattice dress that comes in red and black. This dress can be worn strapless with a strap around the neck in halter style. The distressed skinny jeans won't likely be found in the misses section or in plus sizes, although Macy's sells distressed jeans designed by Ralph Lauren, but they are not skinny style. The legs of the jeans at Love Culture in front are shredded, which is a stylish feature with some young women. Accents on the jeans are in rhinestones.
Aeropostale carries a design called utility boyfriend pants. They are army green, and tied with a cord around the waist. The pants look like they have been ripped on each leg, like they have been caught on a nail. The utility boyfriend pants have large pockets, which is why they are named utility pants because they can carry tools and such. The legs are typically rolled up to capri length.
Cute clothing for juniors can be found online at Amazon, Overstock and eBay. The junior clothing at these online stores come from all over. Overstock has a pair of Jessica Simpson designed jeggings that come only in junior sizes. Some clothing pieces on these sites are classified as junior sizes when the sizes are in even numbers, so they are not true junior sized clothes.
