Let’s be real. Online shopping makes life about a million and a half times easier than before we could log online and have everything at our fingertips. Maybe our generation is one of instant gratification, but getting a package of new clothes really does feel like Christmas morning. To experience Christmas every day, treat yourself to some new outfits from these amazing (and underappreciated) stores.
We all need basics. White tees, jeans, our birks - whatever it is that makes us the most comfortable. This site is THE place for your most clean and minimal basics. You need some comfy tanks with a little bit of extra spark? Tautmun has it. Some of the stuff is hit-or-miss, but for most people, most of the store will be a huge hit. The best part? Free standard shipping, all orders, no minimum. Things like that just hit you right in the feels.
Ever wanted to feel (or dress) a little like Miley Cyrus circa 2015? Check out Shop Jeen. You can deck out your bed, your phone, and your walls to be *just* like Miley, and no one’s going to stop you. Whether you’re checking them out for Halloween or to start a new colorful and snazzy wardrobe, get them on your list.
By now, we’ve all heard of #GirlBoss Sophia Amoruso and her start with Nasty Gal. If you haven’t ordered at least one thing from Nasty Gal, you’re missing out! The shop is filled with every sort of style - from the best basic LBDs to some amazingly out-there tops, jewelry and dresses. Everything Nasty Gal has to offer will make you feel as #girlboss as the lady who started it all.
Best part about Asos? They completely get the fact that you’re a student shopping on a student’s budget. Shipping is free over $40, which is pretty easy to spend there. They have thousands of different styles (read as: everything you could ever need) and it’s all pretty reasonably priced. You can also sign up for UNiDAYS, which gives you a 10% discount off of Asos.
Owned by Nylon Mag, this shop is the place to go if you’re looking for that perfect laid-back cool girl wardrobe. It’s curated by the best of the best at Nylon and if your life goal is to be a Nylon girl, starting here is your first step.
If you’re all about graphic tees, run, don’t walk, to this boutique. They’ve got funny, sassy and sarcastic tees, and any other type of top you could ever want. I’m a particular fan (as are many ladies at Barnard) of the Fly Art shop, which combines your love of art history with your love of Yeezy, Beyonce, and the Weeknd.
An Aussie boutique that’s well worth the insane shipping. Everything in this store is ridiculously adorable, and their Instagram is what dreams are made of. I’m found some of my favorite crop tops and dresses here, and everything just looks so damn good both on and off the site. The only downside is the switch between US sizing and AU sizing.
