With an abundance of retailers shopping for clothes online has never been easier — both a blessing and a curse! We flagged down the very best online clothing stores that save us from spending hours searching for the perfect chunky loafer or the best tote bag only to end up with an empty shopping cart and far too many tabs left open.

To rescue you from that same frustration, we created a roundup of online retailers to shop at, keeping in mind price range, product selection, shipping options, return policies, site navigation, and any extra perks like reward programs or styling services. Whether you’re looking for something specific, or are seeking a muse or two for your next style makeover, you’ll want to bookmark this story ASAP to refer back to when the inevitable shopping urge comes around.

When in doubt, Nordstrom probably has it. The department store is famous for selling a little bit of everything in every size, from shoes to shirts to designer goods. Plus, when sales roll around, the discounts are so good that it’s nearly impossible to check out with only one or two items in your cart. Nordstrom is also known for its excellent customer service, like free virtual styling and curbside pick-ups. If you join the free rewards program, you can also enjoy complimentary alterations in addition to earning points each time you shop. With beauty and home products as well, Nordstrom truly is a one-stop shop.

Saks Off 5th

Saks Off 5th

Don’t sleep on this discounted designer retailer. Saks Off 5th is the best destination to search for high-end pieces at a fraction of the price. It sells fan favorites like Vince and Jil Sander, and it has amazing shoe and accessory options. Filter your search by item, designer, price point, and size, to discover a multitude of hidden gems. There is also a large selection of pre-owned pieces that you can sort by condition, price, category, and brand. Snag that bag on your designer wishlist. Besides, who doesn’t love a discount?

Aritzia The Super (Re)Puff Long


Puffer jackets, fall knits, and contouring basics are just some of the everyday luxury pieces Aritzia offers. The clothing store prides itself on using quality materials — like its vegan leather and breeze Merino wool, an extra-fine wool and cotton blend — to give shoppers pieces that will stand the test of time. As it starts to get cold, you may want to invest in some new puffer jackets. Designed to keep you warm (up to negative 22 degrees), the water-repellent Super Puff is a favorite among shoppers.

We’re also crazy about Artizia’s TNA collection, which consists of comfy and cool styles, like cargo pants and crewnecks. But if you’re looking for more high-end garments, the Babaton collection has tailored designs that will take you right from work to a night out.

Shipping Policy: Free standard shipping within the United States | Best For: Everyday luxury pieces | Size Range: 2XS–2XL | Price Range: $$–$$$

The ReCashmere® Boxy Crew


There’s a likelihood that you’ve heard of Everlane because celebrities like Katie Holmes and Angelina Jolie wear pieces from the brand that look way more expensive than they are. The brand not only succeeds at sourcing the finest materials — like its ReCashmere sweaters, a blend of recycled cashmere and wool — but also shares every aspect of its cost breakdown so that you know exactly how much a piece of clothing costs to make. Aside from the affordable prices, Everlane committed to quality from day one by using ethical factories, high-quality materials, and focusing on timeless pieces rather than trends. We believe the durable Italian Leather Day is one of the best ballet flats — full stop. It even sells seamless underwear, which you actually can return after the first try if they don’t fit right.

Shipping Policy: Free shipping on orders over $75 | Best For: Modern basics | Size: 2XS–2XL | Price Range: $–$$

With so many weddings coming up, Reformation is a great place to quickly browse wedding guest looks. And it has a sustainable shoe line, which has everything from sandals to heels.

The brand offers free standard shipping on all purchases, and it recently just switched from 100 percent compostable bags to 100 percent recycled LDPE bags so that its packaging will break down in landfills.

Nothing is more annoying than finding an item you love and realizing that the store doesn’t sell it in your size. But don’t stress, Madewell has an impressive size range for many of its offerings, going from XXS to 4X. Even better? You don’t have to scroll to a completely different section on the site (although you can find specific categories for Plus, Petite, and Tall if you want easy access). It’s all in the same place — which is how it should be. Kind of like J. Crew’s younger cousin, our favorite Madewell pieces range from quality jeans to casual sweaters, shoes, and swimsuits. And if you want to decrease your environmental impact, check out the preloved section and consider trading in some old denim for shopping credit. Win-win.

Click into the “sport” category to find all you need to wear to your next golf session, tennis tournament, and après-ski outings.

Pistola Denim Bobbie Mid Rise Loose Straight Cargo - Varsity


Basic but never, ever boring (have you seen Greta Gerwig’s hot pink wardrobe staple?), you’ll wonder how your wardrobe ever stood without the foundation Pistola’s evergreen pieces provide to everyday style. We certainly can’t imagine our lives without its versatile and flattering denim midi skirt, and the brand is behind our most durable pairs of jeans and trousers that we’ve held onto for ages. Additionally, each piece is well-tailored, but super comfortable, so we can shrug into its plush cable knit cardigan and look put together in a snap. Although we sing the praises of how its sweaters, tees, and bottoms are four-season friendly and easy to incorporate into our current closets, we also love how the brand carries a few wild cards, like this two-toned crew neck and red hot slip dress to amplify the look of a simpler outfit.

Shipping Policy: Free shipping over $150 | Best For: Denim, wardrobe staples | Size: XS–XL | Price Range: $$–$$$

Pro-tip: The site is a great place to scour for gifts because it has an impressive curated collection of unique, but useful, home decor, accessories, and beauty items you can’t find anywhere else.

Maxx instead of what may be an out-of-budget retailer,” she adds.
