Many of us steer clear of discount retailers such as Walmart when it comes to our clothing needs – we assume that quality there would be too low and that the looks offered won’t reflect current fashion trends.
While I generally agree, today I would like to discuss three items that I do buy at discount stores. These are all basic items – I wouldn’t buy suits or dresses at Walmart – but for the very basics, I find that the store does offer good quality at prices that you simply can’t beat.
As a busy mom, I find that for everyday wear, the tees and tanks offered at Walmart are just perfect. This cotton graphic tank by Norma Kamali, for example, costs just $8 and looks so cute with jeans.
Discount retailers often carry a wide range of quality, affordable brands, including Hanes, Fruit of the Loom and Danskin. Check out the selection at the intimates department at Walmart.
For my yoga and jogging needs, I find that Walmart carries a great selection of items. Prices are affordable, so I can replace these pieces as often as I need to. I also use some of these items – including these relaxed pants by Danskin – as loungewear when just hanging around the house. Comfy!
