These trendy and cheap online clothing stores have it all at great prices — whether I’m looking for a new pair of shoes or a dress to wear to a wedding. I’ll show you how to get the best deals and best shopping experience when shopping for clothes online.
When online shopping, break out the measuring tape and look at the sizing guide, because most of the cheapest websites aren’t based in the US. Sizes most anywhere else in the world are based on metrics rather than American sizes.
Even within the same online clothing store, sizing can vary across products. SHEIN is famous for this. You might be a size 8 for one pair of jeans, but the same measurements on a cute skirt could make you a size 10.

1. Load up on cheap SHEIN clothing starting at $4.
SHEIN is a great place to find cheap clothing, but the quality can be hit or miss.
Here’s a hit: SHEIN’s corset waist tartan skater skirt is only $11 ($12 if you get it in plus size) and gets great reviews on quality for the price. It’s super trendy and cute, and doesn’t look cheap.
You can find items in the $80+ range on SHEIN, but there’s plenty of inventory at a much lower price range. New items to SHEIN start at $4, and that’s before any type of discount or markdown.
PRO TIP: Visit the free trial center for free stuff. SHEIN has a “free trial center” where you can apply for free clothing in exchange for a review. You get three “chances” every week. The odds of being selected for a review on any particular item is slim. But once you’ve put in a review — especially if it’s a review that SHEIN liked — you’re more likely to be selected again.
2. Save 20% with ASOS promo code: ASOSNEWTREAT.
You’ll notice that the prices at ASOS tend to be a bit higher than the prices at SHEIN, but the quality is better. For example, in the summer of 2021 you could find adidas x Ivy Park swimwear at ASOS.
To find the best deals on ASOS, check out the Outlet. In the Outlet, you can find items up to 70% off, with a ton of options under $10. In addition, new shoppers can get 20% off everything when you spend $50 with code: ASOSNEWTREAT.
ASOS is also known for its extensive sizing options, offering a great plus size section without inflating prices, and even offering a maternity clothing line. Plus, it has one of the best return policies.
Cotton:On Curve scoop neck long sleeve tee in white, $5.90.
Originally $16.95, 65% off.
ASOS DESIGN Maternity ultimate organic cotton scoop neck tank in mink, $2.20.
Originally $7.50, 70% off.
US customers very rarely pay customs charges on their ASOS order. Customs will only be charged on orders of $800+ when the item has been shipped from the UK. Customs may also be charged if your item has an animal part named in the description.
3. Find discount celebrity clothing lines at MissGuided.
MissGuided is a British fashion brand that fully embraces its fast fashion status. In fact, they pride themselves on providing “rapid” fashion. All of their products are designed in house.
Over the years, MissGuided has partnered with a number of celebrities for various lines. For example, the Sean John x MissGuided line that came out in fall of 2020 was the first Sean John line for women.
Even though you’re ordering from a British company, you won’t have to worry about paying customs with MissGuided unless your order is over $800.
4. Shop through your airline loyalty account for extra discounts.
Collect frequent flyer miles? Your airline’s shopping portal might be a way to score even more savings.
For example, if you used the promo code pictured above, you could get the Sean John x MissGuided Ringer Crop Top Tee for 15% less (or just $10.20 total.) Granted, your total order would need to be $80 to earn this discount.
Then, on top of it, you’d earn 2 AAdvantage miles for every $1 you spent at MissGuided.
5. Save up to 88% on Boohoo’s discount clothing.
Boohoo is another cheap online clothing store that offers fast fashion for a wide audience. They’re both an online clothing store for women and men and offer a maternity section and plus-size clothes. They also offer options for both petite and tall fits.
While some of the prices can be a little high for the quality, you can find some great deals under $10 if you do a little digging, like this one:
Maternity Ditsy Floral Pinafore Dress, $8.
Originally $36, 88% off.
Boohoo says they cover duty charges on all orders, but if your state or locality charges any import taxes, you could be left holding the bag.
6. Save up to 78% at one of the most popular Black-owned online clothing stores.
Lilly’s Kloset was an online-only clothing boutique for nearly a decade before opening their first, physical location in Houston in 2021. The quality of clothing from Lilly’s Kloset is hit or miss, with many thick, quality fabrics on some extremely well-structured pieces, and then unsewn hems on others.
When items are new at Lilly’s Kloset, the prices are on the higher side. But, if you wait until they go on sale, you can find some seriously good deals. Like:
Heart Warmer Puffer Jacket, $20
Originally $48, 58% off
Down to Business Navy Blazer Bodysuit Skirt Set from the Curvy line, $20
Originally $94.40, 78% off
PRO TIP: Save 10% on your first order when you become a “VIP” email and text subscriber.
7. Find great occasion dresses at Lulus for as low as $9.
Lulus is a great place to find reasonably priced formal wear—especially when you shop their final sales. I once saw a bridesmaid dress from Lulus that was only $60. I was able to grab it during a sale and got it for just about $30!
8. Find deals for $25 and under at Beginning Boutique.
Beginning Boutique is a slightly-higher-quality fast fashion online boutique. Their prices are generally a little higher, too. I fell in love with this rainbow halter dress, but it’s $69.99, which is a lot for fast fashion.
Major bummer: You are highly likely to pay import duties on orders from Beginning Boutique. And any local import taxes due aren’t calculated into your final price. This means you might be required to visit the post office to pay these fees before they’ll give you your package.
If you shop the sale section, though, you can find a lot of gems for under $25.
Sports Wear Track Pants, White, $10.
Originally $44.99, 72% off.
Edie Skirt Leopard, $10.
Originally $47.99, 79% off.
9. Find discounted clothing in Tobi’s sale section.
Tobi is very much a cheap, fast fashion site. But their prices don’t always reflect that. One way to get around the price vs. quality problem is to shop the sale section exclusively, where you can find cute items marked down below $15.
Jase Lace Up Bodysuit in Silver, $9.
Originally $48, 81% off.
Pleat the Way Maxi Skirt in Mint, $11.
Originally $56, 80% off.
Save even more by clearing your browser’s cookies to get an offer of 50% off your first order the first time you visit Tobi’s site.
10. Shop Amazon Wardrobe and don’t pay until you’ve tried on your order.
Amazon sells just about everything these days. They even have a program for Prime members called Amazon Prime Wardrobe where you order up to eight items and you don’t pay until you decide what you’re going to keep. You have seven days to decide what to send back.
11. Save up to 70% on brand labels at Zulily.
Zulily is like an upscale, online version of Ross. You can find all kinds of brands and styles, like Levi’s or Muk Luks, at some really affordable prices. Here are some deals I recently found on jeans:
Levi’s Blue Can 541 Straight-Leg Jeans Men, $26.99.
Originally $79.50, 66% off.
Levi’s Incense Herringbone Classic Chino Jeans, $17.84.
Originally $59.50, 70% off.
Zulily is also a great place to shop for affordable girls’ dresses. For example, I recently found this flower girl dress for 69% off:
White Lace-Accent Francesca Dress by Trish Scully Child, $29.99.
Normally $96.00, 69% off.
PRO TIP: Zulily price matches Amazon and Walmart.com.
12. Save more with rewards and cash-back credit cards.
In July of 2021, Chase was offering a 10% cash-back offer on all Zulily purchases. If you used the Chase Shopping Portal to initiate your purchase, that cute flower girl dress would be $2.90 cheaper in the end, bumping your total discount up to 72%. You’ll only save 69% on the dress if you don’t use your credit card benefits.
This same concept can be used across stores. Check in with your credit card issuer to check out their current partner stores.
13. Shop brand name 6pm.com shoes and clothing for up to 77% off.
You can find affordable clothing on 6pm.com, but I like 6pm.com for shoes in particular. They are a division of Zappos, after all. Recently, I’ve seen:
NIKE Lunar Hyperdiamond 3 Varsity sneakers for $23.65
Normally sells for $60, 61% off
NIKE Joyride Dual Run sneakers for $56.18
Normally sells for $130, 57% off
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 Ox sneakers, $30.37
Normally sells for $79.95, 62% off
Nicole Miller New York Skin Print Skinny in Khaki Snake, $23.20
Normally sells for $99, 77% off
14. Discover affordable, quality brands like Mon Cheri on Instagram.
I learned about Mon Cheri purses on Instagram. Several purchases later, I have zero regrets. The purses are affordable, cute, and the quality is just as good if not better than what I’d find at Kohl’s or Target.
Mon Cheri also sells sunglasses, swimwear, and other accessories.
PRO TIP: Check for sales as the seasons change. In the past, the owner–Cherish–put all purses on sale for $15 or less during seasonal sales.
15. Shop KIN by Kristine sales for boutique plus-size fashion at a 53% discount.
Designer Kristine Thompson launched her career as a plus-size fashion influencer, then started TrendyCurvy.com and built a large social media following. Now, she’s expanded her business to include a plus-size, online clothing boutique called KIN by Kristine. Thompson designs the pieces herself.
The prices are a little higher than some of the fast fashion brands on this list, but the quality makes it worth it, and you can find some great deals if you shop sales.
Cheetah Jacquard Trumpet Skirt, $33
Originally $69.95, 53% off
Almond Overlay Skirt, $33.50
Originally $68.95, 51% off
16. You can save over $1,000 on luxury brands at TheRealReal.
If you’re looking for high-end designer clothing, you’ll want to check out TheRealReal. Each item is inspected for authenticity before being listed on this online consignment store.
Check out this deal I recently found:
Louis Vuitton Epi Pochette Sellier Dragonne Clutch, $725
Estimated retail price $1,770. Save 60% by buying consignment.
PRO TIP: You can sell your old clothing items on these same websites to bring in some extra side hustle money.
17. Save up to 72% on brand names by shopping Poshmark.
Poshmark tends to be more of a mixed bag when it comes to brands, which is more than okay with someone like me who doesn’t necessarily feel the urge to own a Louis Vuitton.
Poshmark is a marketplace where different sellers will list their various clothing items. That means that sometimes you’ll find a killer deal, while other times you’ll be left paying way too much. So, be discerning in your searches.
I found some good deals listed recently by seller maghog71, but again, the deals are certainly not limited to one seller:
New Free People Maddison Eyelet Blouse with tags, $45
Original item price $118, Save 62% by buying consignment
Levi’s Button Fly High Rise Straight Leg Jean, $28
Original item price $98, Save 72% by buying consignment
18. Save up to 90% on high-end brands on thredUP.
Go to thredUP to find some pretty steep discounts on clothing brands that range from Forever 21 to Calvin Klein.
This site sells secondhand clothes, but each item is marked as “new with tags,” “basically new,” “slightly used,” and so on. Give them your email and get a 50% discount on your first order.
Recently I found a Kenneth Cole casual dress for $16.99, originally $167. That’s some insane savings.
