Find Original Clothes Without Stepping Foot Into a Mall
Shopping online can help you find original and different clothes than in stores. Want to know about different online shopping sites and the kinds of clothes they sell?
We’ve all been there. You spend time at the mall looking for original pieces, only to wear that dress out for the first time and wind up matching with your next door neighbor. Having the same clothes as a lot of other people is bound to happen, as most malls have the same stores, and most stores carry similar, if not exact, items. A great way to avoid buying similar stuff to everyone and finding different pieces is by shopping online.
Next time you feel you need some new clothes, just think of the style you’re looking for. A site with the relevant clothes is out there!
Looking for funky clothes in a range of prices?
There are a lot of online sites offering cute and funky clothes that are also original. The sites are able to do this because they often purchase inventory from different brands, rather than produce the clothes themselves. So you’ll find a ton of options in different styles, prices, and fits.
One of the most popular online fashion sites for cool and hip clothes is ASOS. It’s a British company that has the latest fashion and trends in both womenswear and menswear. It has clothes, accessories, shoes, and beauty products for women. ASOS also has a really nice website that makes it simple to find exactly what you’re looking for. On the site you can select either women or men, and then choose the product you’re looking for like pants, shirts, or shorts. From there you can further filter your search to find things by price, brand, color, style, or length. If you don’t have an item in mind and just want to browse to see what there is, you can shop by range, like maternity, petite, or small, or by category, such as workwear or going-out clothes. Since ASOS sells clothes from various designers and brands, it has a wide price range. While one designer skirt can be $150, a beautiful bridesmaids dress may only be $50.
Another site that offers trendy clothes in a variety of prices is Boohoo. Like ASOS, Boohoo is also a UK-based retailer that’s aimed at 16-30 year olds. On the site you can find all of the latest women’s and men’s fashion items. It has cute dresses, sleeping onesies, classy heels, and even coats for women, and sneakers, pants, and suits for men. The brand also sells kids clothes. Boohoo is very affordable, with satin playsuits costing $25 and the majority of its jeans costing around $30. Boohoo is incredibly affordable to start, but the brand also offers frequent discounts and promotions like 25% off menswear and next day delivery for only $2. Both ASOS and Boohoo are sure to please you with their selection of cool and nice clothes offered in a range of prices to suit any budget.
For Vintage and Indie Pieces
ASOS and Boohoo are great places to find items that your neighbors and friends are not likely to have. But you will primarily find trendy clothes, and if you aren’t looking for trendy, well, you may be disappointed.
