The Best Sites to Shop for Trendy and Affordable Clothes!

10 April 2013


Happy 25th post girlies! I seriously cannot thank you all enough for all the love and support these past few months! I am the luckiest girl in the world to have such amazing readers and friends! I have a lot of really exciting things planned for sparkle & mine in the next few months, so I hope that you all will stick around and continue on this journey with me! Here's to 25 more posts!!

But anyways...on to the fun stuff.

Is it just me, or does anyone else enjoy shopping more online than in-store? I love that I'm able to shop from the comfort of my own home while avoiding the crazy crowds and pushy sales people that are usually found at the mall. And not only that, but there are also so many great online stores that don't have any retail locations in my area!

So I've decided to put together a list of all my favorite sites to find trendy clothes for seriously amazing prices! Some of these are a bit more well-known, and some are more up-and-coming but still definitely worth a look. Let's get started, shall we?

1. Forever 21
I know this store is a complete no-brainer for most of us, but I just didn't feel right putting together a list like this without including my all-time favorite! Forever 21 has such an amazing selection of clothes and accessories that are always on top of the trends. And I love that although their pieces are incredibly affordable, they don't look it. I've had so many people ask me where I got a blouse or a bag or whatever else and they are absolutely shocked when I say it was $20 at Forever 21.

2. Cotton On
This is actually a really popular brand in Australia that is just starting to branch out into the U.S. and elsewhere in the world. The clothes sort of remind me of a mix of pieces you could find at H&M and PacSun. Some items are classic, some are trendy, and a lot of them have a fun surfer/boho-ish vibe that I completely love. Plus, the prices are crazy cheap for really good quality items. You can find tons of cute tops for around 5 to 10 dollars. Be sure to check out their "Typo" collection as well. It features some adorable school/office supplies and stuff for your home!

3. HauteLook
HauteLook is my go-to when I want high-end labels for not-so-high prices. The site is run by the team behind Nordstrom, so you can essentially find all the stuff you would at the designer department store, but for a fraction of the price. With fun themed sales and new markdowns constantly rolling in, what's not to love?

Hautelook is a private sale site, so you'll need to gain access by registering for an account. But I promise it's completely painless. You just put in some basic info like your name, email address, etc, and you're in. Here is my personal invite link if you'd like to try it out!

4. Charlotte Russe
So this is another store that is already pretty popular, at least in my area! Charlotte Russe is known for having lots of really feminine, girly pieces. Think lots of bows, lace, and pastel colors. However, they also do have a great selection of more edgy clothing and accessories as well. I like to stock up on jewelry quite frequently from their site because their bracelets and rings are always really cute and around $5. The only issue I have with Charlotte Russe is that some of their stuff can be pretty low quality. Every so often, I'll buy something and it will almost immediately break or rip on me. But for the prices, a few duds every now and then certainly won't stop me from shopping there!

5. Tobi
Tobi isn't quite as affordable as some of the other sites I have mentioned above, but they do still have fairly good prices. They also offer special discounts for new customers, and all new arrivals are always 30% off which is a nice bonus. Tobi has a great selection of dresses, so if you're looking for some new looks for a night out this is definitely a site you want to check out!

6. Love Culture
Love Culture is another up-and-coming store that has an amazing selection of clothes and accessories for even more amazing prices! The pieces you'll find on this site are a bit more wild and trendy than some of the others I've mentioned. There are a lot of neons and fun prints that are perfect for spring and summer! The prices are pretty much right in line with Forever 21, with most items running from about 15-25 dollars.

7. ASOS
I actually just discovered ASOS a couple of months ago when a friend sent me a link to show me a dress she wanted. It is seriously an online shopper's dream! The prices are a little higher than I'd like, but the good news is they have a huge outlet section with some really great deals. Their clothing can range anywhere from super trendy and edgy to really classic pieces that anyone can wear. I just have to warn you guys- before you go on this site, make sure you have a few hours to kill!

8. DailyLook
If you've never been on Daily Look, you seriously need to check it out right this minute! The concept behind it is basically that every day, they post a new magazine-style shot of an outfit, with everything available to buy right on their site. It's great for all the girls out there like me who see shoes they love but struggle to figure out what to wear them with. Plus, their prices are always really affordable and they offer great coupon codes, like 20% off with email sign-up!

9. Francesca's
I've actually been to a Francesca's retail store, and it is seriously the most adorable little boutique setting ever! The store is full of trendy pieces and little treasures at affordable prices.  Most of their items are super girly, with floral prints, pastels, and polka dots galore! Be sure to check out their accessories as well, they have an amazing collection of handbags and statement necklaces.


P.S.- For super chic and cheap accessories, check out JustFab!
What makes JustFab stand out from the crowd for me is the fun style quiz you take the moment you get on their site. After a few questions about your personal style, you're taken to a showroom filled with items specifically chosen for you! Plus, they have amazing offers going on all the time. Right now, they're having a buy one get one free sale. Two pairs of super cute shoes for under $40? Yes, please!

Those are all my favorite online stores, now I want to hear yours! What are your favorite sites to score a good deal and find cute clothes?

  12. Just found this post via pinterest and I would love to add my online clothing boutique to this list! All of my clothing is modest or can be made modest with a tank top underneath - skirts are only knee length or longer. We just launched the end of April and are constantly adding new inventory. We also have jewelry for awesome prices. I can offer your readers a discount code too if you'll add my site to this list... :) www.nixonandila.com. Thanks so much!

  17. Cotton On is everywhere in New Zealand! I would also recommend Glassons, Jayjays and Dotti if you are looking for more Australian/New Zealand brands :)

  18. I'd like to add Rue 21 to your list. It is a less expensive version of Forever 21 (if you can believe it). They have a lot of coupons and promotions, which make shopping there even more "worth it".

  19. Aaaaah I love and hate this post at the same time!

    LOVE: I went straight to Cotton On and found so many GREAT deals on shoes and pants. I couldn't believe it!

    HATE: I spent money.
