Like a good defense attorney, stylish clothing speaks on your behalf, and is preferably self-selected rather than appointed by the state. Reveal and conceal judiciously with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of girls' and women's apparel at Max & Gino's All American Clothing Co., with stores in Woodbury, Merrick, and Hewlett.
Voted No. 2 Jeans Store by Long Island Press readers in 2009, Max & Gino's offers a stylish cornucopia of young women's garb, suitable for occasions both casual and dressy. Denim leggings and jeggings hold gams in a stylish embrace ($48+), and T-shirt-shaped textile chestplates from Chaser, Rebel Yell, Vintage Havana, and Wild Fox keep bare arms free for hatching goosebump colonies ($36+). Devotees of Free People can select from the full line ($40+), perhaps choosing a feminine, bohemian-rocker frock that billows romantically in the breeze of a freshly launched space shuttle. Max & Gino's also boasts Sugarlips tank tops ($16) and the entire Butter Super Soft line for women and girls ($39.50+), featuring luxurious sweatpants, tanks, tees, and a limited-edition collection of vintage-feel hoodies, each carefully distressed by hand using mildly upsetting finger puppets.
