The massive bi-level outpost of budget-shopping empire Necessary Clothing on Canal Street has it all: leopard-print leggings, spiked T-shirts, jeggings, and neon sunglasses. Highly affordable separates reference the latest season’s styles but are priced at what it might take to ship designer duds. The space in Chinatown is decorated with stainless-steel details and exposed brick, and is a pioneer of big-box retail spaces on Canal Street. Shoppers can expect studded wedges, faux-leather jackets, and cutout dresses, all guaranteed to price under $100.
