We believe that clothes can serve a higher purpose to make people look the way they want to look and feel the way they want to feel, and our Express brand purpose - We Create Confidence & Inspire Self-Expression - speaks to the role our brand can play in their lives. In 2021, we introduced our innovative Community Commerce program, inviting brand fans and style enthusiasts to take their passion for fashion to the next level by working with us.

Today, we are building, activating and amplifying the Express styling community, and we invite you to join us. Our culture is defined by three values - Express Yourself, Express Together, Express Success - and every associate at every level in every department is an important part of our transformation and our future.
