Designer clothes for young women
There are so many fashion designers out there right now, and it can be tough to sort through them all.
There’s a designer for everyone out there – some cater to the older “ladies who lunch” crowd, while others would be best suited to dress your mom or grandmother. But one thing’s for sure – not all designers make clothes for young people! So which designers should you pay attention to if you’re a fashion foward teen or twenty-something?
Here’s a handy guide to my top 10 must-watch designers for young people. First let me say that they aren’t necessarily “young designers” (although many are), they’re just designers who appeal to a younger audience. There’s also no ranking here – the designers are listed in alphabetical order because I love them all equally!
All of the designers listed have something unique to offer, and I think you’ll agree that they’re all inspiring in different ways. Hopefully there’s something for everyone here.

Always on the cutting edge, Alexander McQueen is an example of a designer that not everyone will “get”, but we all have to appreciate from an artistic perspective. His collections are examples of pure theatrics and artistry – truly architecture in clothing form.
Alexander Wang is probably my favorite designer on this list – if I could wear only one designer’s clothing every day, it would definitely be his. Every piece he designs is impeccably simple, but still edgy and fashion-forward. Alexander Wang’s work is proof that simple clothes don’t have to be boring, and that the beauty of clothing is in the details.
I chose Balenciaga for this list because it’s one of the most modern and envelope-pushing fashion houses out there today. It’s been around since 1919, but has been transformed into a modern brand under creative director and fashion genius Nicolas Ghesquiere. Expect to be taken to another world when you check out a Balenciaga show. Maybe it’s not the most wearable fashion house, but it’s certainly one of the most inspiring, something we can all appreciate.
How could I write about young, fun, fashion designers and not mention Betsey Johnson? She’s been rocking the fashion world with her exuberant, funky, and over-the-top styles for years now, and she’s got legions of loyal fans all over the world! Betsey’s clothes are always fun, sexy, and colorful, but they’re also really wearable and somewhat affordable as far as designer clothes go. What’s not to love?
Chloé is a brand that’s made for a true girly girl – tons of chiffon, floaty dresses, and incredible shoes & accessories! Chloé has been around since 1952, but has experienced a huge resurgence in popularity over the past 10 years. The brand is responsible for the cult-classic Paddington bag that was such a huge hit a few years ago. The bag’s “it girl” status helped Chloé gain thousands of new fans and launched it as a popular fashion house among young people.

I don't mean high-end designer clothes, I can't afford those. I mean clothes at places I can afford. I have spent the last two hours shopping online trying to get a few things for vacation and a few things for spring/summer, mainly tops. I'm picturing pretty, somewhat fitted linen tops in muted colors. I have looked at macy's jjill, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Lands End etc, and NO, just NO!!
When was it decided that women are supposed to dress like big clowns in rayon, bat-wing blouses with hideous, massive floral prints? Why do otherwise nicely made linen tops only come in bright fuchsia or turquoise? Why does everything have horizontal stripes and why is everything cut like a tent?
I will admit that I am an old-timer of 50, so that may be the problem
