A trip to New York always guarantee visits to famous fast fashions, such as Zara, H&M and Forever 21. Despite these three brands are well known by the cool clothes and reasonable prices, they are not the only networks in this style in the city. I have shown some fast fashion options here as well as other different and interesting brands here and today I bring some more names that deserve your attention during your stay in New York – some well-known too!
& Other Stories – this brand is part of the H&M group. Prices are not as accessible, but the pieces are beautiful and a remarkable quality. There are clothes with a timeless and classic style. The colors are smooth, the fits are traditional. There is also a special section with bags, shoes and accessories, all very beautiful. Not to mention the part of cosmetics, with makeup and body line – be sure to try the exfoliating.
Addresses: 505 Fifth Avenue – 575 Broadway.
Aeropostale – a young clothing brand! Depending on your style, it may not be identified either, but I particularly like the variety of t-shirts, super cheap. Also, there is always nice jeans and jackets as well. Aeropostale also has a men’s section. Prices are good!
Addresses: 1515 Broadway – 901 6th Avenue (Manhattan Mall)
Topshop – this fast fashion from England is super famous among the fashionistas. Their prices are not the cheapest when compared to H&M or Forever 21, but, undoubtedly, Topshop is one of the most creative fast fashions stores. You can always find different pieces there. And when you have enough compensates when there is sales. Accessories and footwear are also nice, not to mention the men’s section. Fifth Avenue store is the second in size in the world.
Addresses: 608 5th Ave – 478 Broadway.
Banana Republic – from Gap group, Banana Republic is another store to find classic and timeless clothes. Do you want a formal look for working? There you will certainly find! The color palette is neutral, the pieces are wild and the price is affordable. The quality is pretty admirable. I have some black pants I bought there and used too much and it is perfect! Sales are incredibly.

Addresses: 126 5th Ave – 121 Wooster St – 216 Columbus Ave – 1517 Third Ave.
Aldo – although I prefer shoes from Brazil (in relation to cost-benefit), I love to check out the Aldo designs, with a lot of different options. It is also worth checking bags and accessories, always beautiful, affordable! The sales are also a hit with many special discounts.
Addresses: 730 Lexington Ave – 603 Fifth Avenue – 218 West 42nd Street – 27 West 34th Street – 700 Broadway.
