Hidden Gems of Online Shopping Sites

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Conn Coll chapter.


 Looking to brighten up your wardrobe for the end of the semester? Not finding anything you like on Urban Outfitters? Is a trip to Forever 21 a little too overwhelming? Here are some shopping websites to bookmark for when you need a little retail therapy!

As a sister website to Banana Republic and Gap, Piperlime features a huge variety of your favorite stores and designers. There is currently a 40% Off Spring Sale, which offers great deals for clothes to put away for next winter, but also summer dresses and shorts for now! Michael Stars and Splendid offer maxi dresses in solid colors and stripes that can be worn over and over again. The soft cotton material lasts forever and it would be a shame not to take advantage of the low prices. If you will be going to a formal event this summer, there is an awesome selection of formal dresses by Shoshanna, with beautiful patterns and flattering styles. If you have just about worn out your favorite pair of pricey jeans and are looking to replace them, Piperlime offers skinny jeans, boyfriend cut, bright colors, and all denim washes by major jean brands, including Hudson, 7 for all Mankind, and Citizens for Humanity. Along with discounted Free People dresses and tops, Piperlime is where you need to go to stock up and save!

     Based out the the UK, Asos has the best selection of bathing suits. The prices are low, and free shipping and returns allow you to easily send suits back that don’t fit perfectly. Tops and bottoms are sold separately so you have the chance to mix and match. There is an awesome selection of springtime blazers if you are looking to add one to your wardrobe!
     If you are looking for sandals or wedges, Lulu’s is the perfect shopping site. Metallic wedges are perfect to wear with dark jeans or a patterned dress, while sandals are a great alternative to heels! There isn’t a color that you won’t find- my favorite pair is the Bamboo Dalinda 30 Cutout Sandals in mint. And for only $31? Why not!
