This spring is all about the hi-low hemlines – well, Free People (www.freepeople.com) thinks so at least. A trend report that engulfs the homepage, with a classy model demonstrating “the look,” invites us to read their blog, Bldg 25, about this ‘70s trend that is now coming back into style.
Not only does Bldg 25 offer news and advice about this style, but there also are numerous other categories to choose from that define what Free People is all about – a creative, independent, impressively bold and free-spirited girl.
Free People’s website is easy to navigate with many tabs categorizing all of your Free People needs, from what’s new overall to clothes, accessories, shoes, intimate apparel, vintage and finally swim. Each category’s page gives you an example of what you will find if you delve into the Free People world, and a convenient side bar simplifies the category even more and gives you other brands that Free People loves.
Want to know more about Free People? A little category called “help, please” gives all the information you might want to know from their story, ordering, shipping and whatever else your little heart desires.
While Free People does offer many pros, there is one con that may have a big impact: The prices are anything but free. Yes, there is a sale category, but even that can be a little pricey with a sweater for $70 and outerwear for $100. So if you’re looking for bargains, this may not be the site for you.
