Tired of what major fashion clothing magazines have to say about this and that—that designer, this trend, that store, and this season? Well, you’re not alone. That’s why some pretty spiffy and inventive people forged into the online world to bring you alternative views on fashion and women’s clothing. That’s right, Vogue! You have rather feisty DIY competition, which is a good thing…well, for the consumers, at least. Why? Because most of us aren’t a size 0 and the thought of $1,000 jeans makes our bank accounts shudder. If you want fashion from a different perspective, here are the top 10 women’s fashion clothing websites you’ve probably never heard of (unless you’re a fashion addict, in which case there’s a remote possibility you have):
These are in no order of preference.
1. Necessary Clothing
Necessary Clothing is the ultimate online destination for trendy fashionistas on a budget. Shop this season’s must-have looks, in their NYC stores or online, without breaking the bank. Let me first say that I would like to think that whoever named this store was thinking ironically, though from the likes of the place, I highly doubt that was the case. Necessary Clothing carries completely unnecessary items; however, they have some great, fashionable finds that will spice up your wardrobe at a CHEAP cost to you!
2. Pinup Girl Clothing
Pinup Girl Clothing was founded in 1999 by Laura Byrnes, Head Creative/Designer, and is an LA-based, female-owned company. A photographer for over 30 years, Laura worked with musicians and artists before moving into dress making. What began as a means to make clothing for herself and her daughter turned into a movement. Laura created a real-world version of what she had seen on vintage pinup ephemera, essentially creating a style, Pinup, specializing in vintage-inspired clothing.
3. Hell Bunny
Buckle markets a wide selection of brand names and private label casual apparel, including denims, other casual bottoms, tops, sportswear, outerwear, accessories and footwear. The Company emphasizes personalized attention to its guests (customers) and provides individual customer services such as free alterations, layaways, and a frequent shopper program.
5. Mod Cloth
Featuring delightful vintage-style clothes from indie designers, this site also boasts visually appearing photographs that give you a good idea of what you’re buying. Whether you want skinny jeans, tunics, tees, rompers, bloomers, or pleated skirts, Mod Cloth probably has something for you. Look around at: http://modcloth.com
6. 2020 Ave
Well, I first found 2020Ave a few years back when they use to have all these cool unique tunics no one else had, but I recently gave them a try and I’m skinny and have a hard time with finding clothes to fit me like I want them too and I ordered two high-waisted denim shorts and they fit! So thin women, this is your place. And shipping is super fast, I placed my order on Saturday, and it just got here today and it’s only Wednesday, I am definitely hooked, plus they have promotions/discounts on holidays!
7. Hip Mountain Mama
Hip Mountain Mama is owned and operated by, Suzy, a down-to-earth, groovy, free-spirited Mama. She started the business in 2008 with a few boxes of inventory and a website. With a degree in Sociology and a small amount of retail experience, Suzy was jumping into new territory. But, it was love at first sight, and she relied on her dedication to customer service, spreading kind vibes, and hard work to grow her shop into a successful online business.
