Does anyone else find themselves scrolling through pages and pages of the ‘new in’ section on ASOS every time they’re bored? Surely i’m not the only one who struggles with this (bank balance damaging) habit. Anyway, I’m not here to break my late night ASOS stalking habit, but actually to share a few of my favourite places to shop online.
Romewe is a rather recent discovery of mine. I managed to stumble upon the shopping site one day whilst I was scrolling through Instagram and have had it bookmarked ever since. You’ll recognise most of the stock from everyone’s fav high street stores such as Zara and H&M, and many other on-trend pieces. However, everything is at a fraction of it’s original retail price. Kinda like an outlet, but instead of it being last seasons tat that no one really wants anymore, it’s actually got some pretty cool stuff. I totally didn’t just get click-happy with the ‘add to basket’ button and then proceed through to checkout… it wasn’t me.
Another Instagram discovery, Zaful is very similar to Romwe in the sense that it’s pretty much an outlet full of the best pieces from high street stores. However, unlike the former, Zaful.com stocks shoes. You can never go wrong with discounted shoes – am I right?
Not really a website, but the selling app Depop has been one of my favourite places to find items that have gone out of stock and at a bargain price too. Also, if you’re quite the clothes hoarder like myself or have more clothes flowing into your wardrobe than out, its a great way to clear out. As well as selling and buying, people also ‘swap’ items of clothing for another, which I think is just the best idea. We all know how easy it is to get bored of your clothes, and they do say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
A very unique and inspirational shopping site. Stylewe has hundreds of collections from up and coming designers and fashion brands. If you’re like me and find that high street stores tend to get a little bit samey and tired of passing six other girls on the street wearing the exact same blouse as you, welcome Stylewe into your browser bookmarks! I always visit this site when i’m feeling uninspired and unoriginal, even if I don’t actually purchase anything.
Close those forty thousand tabs you’re currently trying to juggle on Google Chrome, Mallzee allows you to easily browse through an array of brands all in one little iphone icon. They refer to themselves as ‘the tinder of the fashion world’, which is pretty much spot on. It’s easy to use and you can filter everything from size, product category, brand, and colour. It makes shopping online (in bed, on your phone) simple, easy and efficient.
What I love about Shein is that the majority of the items listed have reviews and even sometimes photographs of customers wearing the clothes. Its often hard to know what’s going to fit when ordering online and unless you want to buy something in three different sizes, it can be pretty risky. Nothing sucks more than when your delivery arrives and the skirt you’ve been excited about all week doesn’t stretch over your bottom – yep, been there, done that.
