I’m here to help you make the best decision for your senior pictures. In this post, I’m listing some of the best clothing stores for senior pictures, so you can find your perfect outfit, I’ll help you find out where to go, what to wear and much more!
Find the right store
To find the best clothing store for your senior pictures, look for stores that:
- fits your style,
- carries your size,
- is nearby (or easily accessible)
- and has a wide range of clothes.
The next thing you need to do is to decide what kind of clothing you want to buy. If you don’t know what to buy, you can go to a store and try on a few different outfits. When you find an outfit that you like, then you can buy it.
10 Popular clothing stores for senior pictures
You want to make sure that you look good in your senior photos. To help you out, I’m giving you a list of some of the best clothing stores for senior pictures. The best part is that all of these stores are in popular malls or shopping outlets. So if you live in the Houston area, you can visit these stores to find out what they have to offer. But, I’m from a small town myself so I’ve made sure to include popular stores that you can shop online at too.
Pacsun offers a wide variety of trendy clothing for women and men. You can find everything from casual clothing to formal wear, including shoes, jewelry, and accessories. Pacsun is a popular clothing store for seniors because it carries a wide variety of options for free-spirited seniors. They’re known for offering fashionable and comfortable clothing which is why they’re at the top of the list.
H&M is one of the most popular clothing brands in the world. Kind of hard to miss them. They offer a wide range of clothing options for all teens. Plus, they are designed for comfort and fashion, which is why I think it’s an excellent choice for senior pictures. In addition, you can pretty much find H&M clothing at nearly any major outlet, mall, or department store.
Now, one of the most explosive brands in the last few years is Urban Outfitters. They’re now focused on trendy, quality clothing so you won’t find as much casual wear here. Urban Outfitter is a great choice if you’re big on expressing yourself.
An oldie but goody is Old Navy. There are lots of teens who cap on Old Navy. But the clothing store has a great selection of clothes that are stylish. I really like how they’re not big into logos and keep it simple. Two factors that are recommended when it comes to styling for portraits. I’ve also personally never seen anything Old Navy made that doesn’t fit perfectly. P.S. Old Navy is one of the best places to buy jeans.
Zara is one of the best clothing stores for senior pictures because it offers high-quality clothing. Stylish and elegant, Zara is a favorite among models and celebrities. If you want to dress up like a celebrity in your senior portraits, Zara is the place to go. In addition to the clothing options, they also offer a wide range of shoes and accessories.
Torrid is a clothing store for girls with curves. They offer a variety of trendy clothes, including dresses, pants, jeans, and accessories for the fashion forward woman. Their clothes are designed to flatter the female form and are comfortable for everyday wear.
This store probably has one of the largest selections of jewelry, purses, scarves and shoes out of the entire list. Most of rue21’s designs and styles are casual. As long as you’re wanting a casual outfit for your senior photos, rue21 makes a great option. Plus, it’s one of the most budget friendly options on the list.
Charlotte Russe is a great place to find clothing for high school senior girls. It’s got an impressive selection of women’s sizes, including petite, tall, junior and plus sizes. In addition, Charlotte Russe has a large variety of accessories like jewelry, sunglasses and more. I’m a huge fan of their bracelets and necklaces.
Although I’ve personally never shopped at Shein, I know tons of seniors and teens who have. First, they have a huge selection of items. It’s a great place to find unique and stylish outfits. Shein is a very well-known brand and you can be sure they’ll have what you’re looking for. And, you can always return or exchange anything you don’t like. The only drawback is sometimes the sizing is off so definitely check the reviews before buying.
If you’re in a time crunch and needing something quickly, check out Forever 21. Although I can’t say that you won’t spend hours shopping in the store. Definitely make sure to try on everything before purchasing because their return policy isn’t that flexible (store credit only). I would say that if you can’t find what you’re looking for at any of the other stores, consider Forever 21. They have a massive variety and are super trendy, but the quality isn’t great at all. So if you don’t care about the clothing not lasting after 1 to 2 washes, consider Forever 21.
Bonus for High School Senior Athletes
If you’re a senior athlete, check out Jostens or Balfour instead.
