Top 10 Best Teen Clothing Brands

Fashion is all about expressing yourself, and as a teen, there's no better time to experiment with different styles and looks! But where do you even begin to find the best brands that totally get you?

That's where this list comes in. Sure, you're going to see some familiar names, but we're also digging into some lesser-known brands that offer unique vibes and awesome quality. We want to know what stores are making a splash in your closet.
The Top Ten
1 American Eagle

I love their jeans so much! They have perfect and cute ripped jeans that aren't super scandalous. Also, their jeans are so comfortable, and I love wearing them.

However, other than jeans, their tops are a little off to me. Whenever I find a cute shirt I like, I take a look at it. Every single time, it says something silly in gold, like "oops" or "morning days." I really wish I could have gotten those shirts without the dumb sayings. But this is just my opinion.

American Eagle offers a pretty big variety of sizes and lengths for all of their clothes. It is perfect for all body types who need casual clothes to wear. Not to mention, they are very trendy and cute!

The prices are a bit high, but if you look at their clearance, you can find amazing deals. Everything is usually 60% off, and you can find $10 shirts! I am 16, and it is my favorite store to shop at.

2 Hollister

Hollister is THE BEST place to buy clothes for teens. All the clothes there are amazing and trendy. Plus, the perfume smells AMAZING. I could go on and on about how much I love Hollister.

Hollister is a good place to shop if you're in middle school or if you're going to be in middle school (I will be in middle school this year). Team Hollister!

I used to shop mainly at Aeropostale and I loved it, but when the store at my mall closed, I gave Hollister a try. I LOVE it. The clothes are trendy, the jeans and shorts fit well and are cute, and I love their perfume. I could go on!

3 Abercrombie & Fitch

I love Abercrombie! All my clothing is from there. Many people say it's expensive, but it's actually pretty cheap. Keep the prices up and keep up the good work.

They have super cute stuff that's casual and preppy and almost always in style. And great quality for the price! Love Abercrombie!

Amazing clothing and great quality! And the cologne is to die for. Definitely check out that store if you haven't done so.

4 Forever 21

Forever 21 has some great items and some not-so-great items. I do shop here often, but you need to be very careful with the items you are buying. They have some very cute clothes and some that are just not my style. Make sure you always read the washing instructions!

It really depends on what you're looking for. Sometimes you can find a really cute item, but they won't have the correct size. It really depends on your size and what time you shop, but overall, they are a pretty great store.

Forever 21 is very nice. HIGH QUALITY. I don't know why it's considered "cheaply made." The styles are up-to-date and look like something a high or middle schooler would wear. I suggest you order a few clothes first and then decide if you like them.

5 Aeropostale

Aeropostale is very inexpensive and offers the most fashionable clothes for middle and high school students. It's the store I frequent because their clothing is very high quality for a little bit of money. The jeans are amazing!

I have been getting a lot of clothes from here. There is a downside, though. One of my shirts from here got ruined in the washer because it wasn't the best quality. Otherwise, it's an awesome store. My favorite jeans are from here.

Since the brand hasn't spread out to other countries, I feel comfortable wearing it as I'm the only one in my city with this brand on. People in my city are annoying - enough said.

6 Nike Nike, Inc. is an American multinational corporation that is engaged in the design, development, manufacturing, and worldwide marketing and sales of footwear, apparel, equipment, accessories, and services. The company is headquartered near Beaverton, Oregon, in the Portland metropolitan area. It is the... read more

I absolutely love Nike. I really love their shoes, especially the Nike Free Run 5.0. They are the first major brand that actually carries sizes 3-11, which is practically all sizes. Being a person with small feet, it's really hard to find trendy shoes that a lot of people wear. If you are like me, this brand has your back. It is expensive, but worth every penny because it is so comfortable!

The colors and the way they advertise are great. Their epic clothes make people look sporty and cool. Nike also offers variety in who they cater to: young, old, overweight, fit, man, or woman. We all get quality goods from Nike because they "Just Do It."

7 Adidas Adidas AG (stylized as adidas since 1949) is a German multinational corporation, founded and headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Bavaria, that designs and manufactures shoes, clothing and accessories. It is the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe, and the second largest in the world, after Nike... read more

I like this brand, but I really wish they would make their signature black pants available in girls' sizes. I mean, if I want their pants in my size, I have to buy them from the boys' section. I don't mind buying from the boys' section because you could never tell, but I think if they offer them in boys' sizes, they should offer them for girls too.

Adidas sneakers are well-priced and of really good quality. I just bought a pair of black Campuses to add to my collection, and it was a bargain at around $65 USD ($499 HKD). They are so comfortable!

I can also say the same for a pair of pants. They're perfectly fashionable for the street and also serve well as home wear. I should have bought two. They're my favorite pants, and they're starting to show wear.

8 Brandy Melville

I love this place. I can find something every time I go there. I'll admit it's a little expensive, but I just love the feel their clothes have, both physically and the way they look. It's kind of a warm, cozy, and chill look.

I love their style and I really like it, but I hate the "one size fits all" motto. I am a twelve-year-old that's 4'8", and their t-shirt dresses surely don't fit all. Some of the stuff needs to come in different sizes, in my opinion.

Though a little expensive, the quality is SO nice. Everything you touch is like touching a cloud. Totally a hipster shop! Their styles vary from rock to hipster to casual and so much more. A definite favorite.

9 H&M HandM, officially known as H&M, is a Swedish multinational clothing retailer that offers fast fashion items for men, women, and children. Founded in 1947, the company has its headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden. H&M operates in 74 countries with over 5,000 stores and also has a significant online presence... read more

I wear full outfits from H&M, and I absolutely adore it. All of their clothes are super comfy and of really great quality! It's definitely one of my favorite stores, aside from Hollister.

Really stylish and cute clothes. They have nice quality, and I will definitely purchase from here again. I love their scarves.

10 Polo

Clothing always looks great on anyone. Dressy yet casual. To this list, I would add: Nautica. They have lovely kids' clothing as well as adults'.

I love their shoes! My dad suggested this brand.

Love it. Looks formal, but can't wear it too much.

The Contenders
11 Lululemon

I own a resale boutique in Texas, and I can't keep this in stock. The second it goes on the shelf, before I can even walk back to the register, someone has grabbed it and is waiting in line to check out.

I swear everyone in middle school, and some in elementary schools, have children who wear this type of clothing. Most people just do it because they like the thought of having the clothing. People like me like the feeling.

BEST PANTS EVER! Even though they're really expensive, they are totally worth it! I wear them all the time and they are amazing!

12 The North Face

Although their stuff is really expensive, it's worth every penny when you buy it. Their products are so fuzzy and comfortable that I could practically sleep in them. I've even considered that option before. The products are long-lasting and both dryer and washer friendly.

I LOVE my North Face! One of my best purchases. Pricey but worth it.

13 Vans

Vans shoes are really comfortable and stylish, but they get dirty very easily. Last Christmas, my uncle got me a pair. My mom and I then went to our local beach to watch him and my dad go swimming on Christmas Day. (I didn't go in. I hate swimming.) Anyway, I wore my brand-new Vans shoes down there, and they got filthy walking around in the sand. I've kept them for nearly six months, but they are really dirty.

Vans is a great brand for shoe shopping. They're high quality and hard-wearing. When I need new shoes, I'll go for them! However, they are really expensive, so if you're looking for a cheaper shoe brand, try a place like Mountain Warehouse. They produce great quality hiking shoes at a reasonable price, although they do tend to come undone.

14 Jack Wills

Almost like Abercrombie. Perfect for teen boys.

The best! I buy everything from here!

15 True Religion

My top-selling jean brands this year are, without a doubt, True Religion, Miss Me, and 7 for All Mankind. I own a consignment store and a vintage/luxury resale boutique, so I can speak with a certain amount of authority on what brands are most highly sought after.

The best way to shop for a higher-priced clothing item is quite similar to the way you would buy a car: find its resale value and demand. If you're buying a brand-new $250 pair of designer jeans and you don't have money to burn, it's an investment in something you hope will last a long time, remain in style, and retain its value. Am I correct?

So go to sites like The RealReal, Poshmark, Threadflip, or even and read what items they take in for consignment. Don't see your favorite brand? Find out why. If, after visiting five different sites, all of them say, No, we don't want your Chico brand jeans, ask yourself if that $125 price tag still looks so worthwhile.

Then check eBay. If there are over 100,000 listings for that pair of jeans and none of them are over $10, think again. On the flip side, if you can't find a pair of True Religion jeans online for under $50 and every reseller is eager to take them in on consignment, well, my friend, you have found a worthy investment and you can feel good about spending the extra cash.

16 Victoria's Secret PINK

I love this brand. It is the best. Yes, the clothes are a bit pricey, but they are really good quality.

My absolute favorite brand. They are a bit pricey, but it's worth it.

Absolutely love this brand. It's pricey but worth it! High quality.

17 Levis

Amazing! Their leather jacket is so comfortable.

18 Rue21

Rue21's clothing style is very versatile. They consistently update their store to fit the latest trends and sell their clothes at very affordable prices.

One thing that I really like about Rue21 is that they do not only sell clothing, but also pillows, perfume/cologne, marquee lights, jewelry, shoes, mugs, etc. It's almost everything a teen desires. I have been shopping here for quite a while and have never been unsatisfied with my purchase.

I LOVE Rue. It's my go-to store, and they always have lots of sales and deals.

19 Topshop

Super trendy and stylish clothing!

20 Urban Outfitters

Love, love, love! A bit pricey but worth it!

21 Delias

I love their stuff! Some things are a little pricey, though, so I don't get to go there too often.

I love all their clothing! Especially their jeans!

22 Vineyard Vines
23 Gucci

For people on the higher side of life.

24 Supreme

I love Supreme. I enjoy sitting in class at school on my phone, trying to buy something every Thursday at 11.

25 Old Navy Old Navy is an American clothing and accessories retailing company owned by American multinational corporation Gap Inc.

I never have good luck shopping here, but they must have some good items still. For young kids, it's a great place to shop.
