The 5 Best Shopping Sites You’ve Never Heard Of

As you’re browsing Instagram, Twitter or Tik Tok trying to procrastinate from whatever pressing homework you probably should have done already, it’s common to come across a shopping site you’ve never heard of. How can you know if a particular site is legit? Who even has time to research to find out?

Luckily, you have us at Her Campus to do it for you. We love online shopping just as much as (if not more than) the next girl, so when it comes to feeding our style addiction, we know how important it is to research and compare sites. If you’re tired to scrolling through your go-to sites and feel like you’re no longer digging what they have to offer, then it may be time to check out some new offerings. These are our favorite online shopping sites (that you’ve probably never heard of).

1. Pixie Market

This NY-based retailer offers new products every week. They stock great basics like trousers, sweaters and white tanks. On their best seller list, however, you can find leather pants and animal print. Whether you’re looking for a basic layering piece or something wild to spice up your outfit, Pixie Market is your go-to.

2. DailyLook

Los Angeles retailer DailyLook offers a full styling experience for customers. When you choose a shirt on their site, for instance, complementing shorts, shoes and accessories (chosen by the site’s stylists) will show up on the sidebar to help you create an entire look. You can even chat with a stylist while you’re shopping for suggestions and answers to questions about sizing and shipping. Because the site is based in California, the aesthetic is very surfer-girl chic—think burnout tees, crop tops and super-short shorts. 

3. 2020AVE

2020AVE, also based in LA, is curated for what founders Brian Kim and Eric Hwang call “your inner fashion rebel.” The entire site is affordable, with dozens of dresses, tops and bottoms to choose from. You can shop their Instagram on their site and read their blog to get style inspo. We want literally everything.

4. Wanderlust + Co

We are big fans of this Melbourne, Australia-based jewelry company, which launched in 2010 and has since taken over our Pinterest feeds. Shipping is free on orders over $50, which isn’t a hard number to reach given the wealth of beautiful, delicate rings and chunky necklaces on the site. Wanderlust + Co is popular all over the world, and it’s no wonder why. 

5. River Island

Our friends in the U.K. have known about River Island forever, but the retailer is just starting to get popular here in the U.S. The dominant style is reminiscent of Topshop or Urban Outfitters, and although stores have popped up all over the U.K, the only way the U.S. has access to their affordable style is online. 

We obviously love online shopping. Which little-known store is next on your shopping list?
