If you're in your 20s, you probably pop into Zara or Forever 21 more frequently than you'd care to admit. Although there's nothing wrong with buying from these places, there's a chance you accumulate clothes that you only wear once or never at all (we see you $10 shirt!).

We curated a list of lesser-known spots you might have forgotten about, or didn't know existed. The likes of Pixie Market and Mango are on par with some of your favourite fast-fashion retailers in terms of style and shopping selections. If you need more convincing, read up on eight hot spots below worth checking out. You'll find a mix of quality affordable and slightly higher-end items, all of which can become the building blocks to a new wardrobe.
