Love fresh, modern but modest clothing that is affordable. Where do you shop? My favorite online is boden.com Love the colorful, younger look but the cuts are modest (I'm 52). Problem is a shirt is about $75. Not on my budget. I'd love to see if anyone has a comparable website that would be more budget friendly. Thanks in advance for your help!

Definitely Kohls. Their clearance racks are great! Plus look for their 15 to 20% off coupons. I've gotten great deals there.

try Lands End Canvas...the Canvas line has a younger look and is a bit more fitted. I recently ordered a few things on sale and it's very reasonable, I got a few tops for under $15.00. They've been washed a few times and seem to be holding up better than other brands.

I agree with Kohls...I think I keep them in business! I buy most of my clothes there for home and work, as well as for my hubby and boys too. I am 34, and they seem to have a good selection of clothing for women that is modest, but stylish and reasonably priced. I got so many cute sweaters for this winter and I am constantly getting compliments at work on them. My MIL (60) loves Chicco and Coldwater Creek. They can be pricier sometimes but typcially have great sales & clearance. Lands End is great too and the clothes really last! My SIL just turned me on to Ann Taylor Loft, really cute clothes and seems like they run 40% off sales more times than not!

J. Crew or BananaRepublic. Sign up for their email lists and you'll get coupons all the time -- they send 30% off ones frequently.

If you have some vision you can put together similar outfits from Old Navy stuff as well, but the pieces aren't as well-made.

Talbots, Lands End, Chicco, Ann Taylor...you can usually find good sales at all of these. They are age appropriate, beautiful clothes that won't break the bank...esp on sale.

I love Boden as well but their clothes are pricey. You could try Ann Taylor or Banana Republic when they have sales, coupons, or the outlets. You can get some really good deals at the outlet mall off 290. Many times Ann Taylor will have sales on clearance items where it is an additional 40 to 50 % off the lowest marked price. They have the sale w/ extra 50% off right now on their website. This way you don't have to look for your size in the store but can filter out in sale section. Also you can return anything not marked as a final sale via online or in the stores.

Stein Mart is the best by far. You can shop online also. Great, affordable, quality clothing for men and women.

TJ Maxx, Nordstrom and Talbot sales, Chicos, Ann Taylor with coupons, Target (really nice basics that are trendy), Antropologie on sale. I look at the high end catalogs and try to duplicate the looks myself. Recently I have gone to some local resale shops and found some great trendy stuff that is new with tags - like an animal print cardigan I am wearing with a on-sale GAP white shirt. Good luck!
