Online shopping is honestly one of my favorite things to do. Online shopping a lot of the time replaces actual shopping for me, because you get to do it in the comfort of your own home (or bed, as I always do). Not to mention, you have the ability to visit shops all over the world and view hundreds of garments in under an hour and never experience your feet hurt from all the walking.
Now, I know many of you are pros at this, and could probably teach me a thing or two. But for those of you who aren’t, I give you my top 5 shopping websites!
So If you’ve read anything I’ve written in the past, you will know that I love asos. It literally has everything! Whether you’re looking for a plain white tee, or an elaborate embellished dress, I guarantee that Asos would have it. It has different price ranges, but most of them are pretty reasonable. And get this—shipping is free both ways! It has a great men’s department, too! In addition, check out their marketplace. It’s sort of Ebay meets Etsy, the fashion department. Finally, if you sign up for MyUniDays with your college email, you will get 10% off on your order!
A little pricey (we’re looking at Zara prices), this British native is an old favorite of mine. Topshop has a store in New York and LA, and about a year ago they opened a section at Nordstrom. However, you will find a much better selection online. Topshop sports the most intricate pieces, with quality matching some higher end designers, for much more wallet-friendly prices! Oh, and did I mention that Kate Moss designes numerous collections for them? For their amazing men’s department, go to Topman!
NastyGal is a grungier version of Asos. If you love leather, Litas and cutout dresses, NastyGal is the place for you! They constantly update their stock and have some of the most unique pieces I have seen. From bright colors, inspiring prints and forms you have never seen before, this is definitely one of my go-to websites.
Romwe is a little different than the rest. This is a website based in China, which strives to bring popular fashion at low prices. Granted, their quality sometimes leaves to something to be desired, but if you’re looking for spiked bralets or galaxy leggings, there is no alternative. It can be a little hard to sort through their stuff and shipping takes longer, coming from China. However, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been stopped on the street in a Romwe piece, asking where I got it from!
I know, I know. Ebay is not exactly a fashion website and 80% of you already know how to use it. However, sometimes Ebay helps me find things that I’ve turned the whole world wide web over for. Obviously, you can look for items that have gone out of stock. But what I like to do, is type in a brand name, such as “Urban Outfitters,” and voila! you have thousands upon thousands used or new items that you probably can’t find anymore and at a lower price!
