I am really particular about my clothes and will think about what to were to an event for weeks – rivalling even the best of my girl-friends. The only thing is that the town I’m from has a very limited range of stores so i have often found myself planning an outfit only to turn up to the event and find that some other guy has the same shirt / jeans etc.. It Is at that point when i just want to scream!
As a result, i have made the switch to buying most of my clothing online as i find that the increase in options reduces the chances of clashing with someone else. 🙂
I have been doing this for years and I have found that whenever i actually do clash with someone it is wearing something i picked up in town as opposed to ordered online.
Below I have highlighted my four favourite online sites for shopping:
1. Boohoo / BoohooMan
Without a doubt my favourite website. The choice is varied and the range is vast, clothes are really great quality and the prices are relatively low. I often find myself getting lost in the variety and spending hours adding to my basket before having to be realistic and edit the basket so it is affordable. The site will often have offers such as 50% off everything & free delivery over €40.
Great for: Cheap accessories such as stylish necklaces, bracelets, plain T-shirts & High quality knits such as jumpers & cardigans .
Value for money: 4/5
Accuracy: 97% – Sizes are exact and the pictures onsite are true to form!
A great site for more day to day clothes, great combination of high street retailer clothing and own brand pieces make for a great site with options for all fashion senses. Mid range prices but worth the extra as the delivery & returns process are so simplified. Great discount of 10% for students through Unidays.
Great for: Printed and patterned shirts, Jeans & Suits.
Value for money: 3/5
Accuracy: 85% – Have had a couple of issues with sizes being inconsistent but the returns process is hassle free and coupled with an express delivery option means you can have your order so quickly.
At the higher end of the price point of these websites sits Topman, while not being overly expensive they sit markedly higher than the previous two sites in terms of price. I feel the variety of Topman is more limited than the others but the quality more than makes up for this. Topman also offer a 10% discount for students
Great for: High quality jeans & high-end luxury suits
Value for money: 3.5/5
Accuracy: 99.99% – Not 100% purely because I’m sure mistakes are made but I have just not personally experienced them – sizing and accuracy are always perfect!
4. River Island
River Island is without doubt my favourite high street store, however the store in my local town is small and it has limited variety so I prefer to do my River Island shopping online as I just find the variety is so much more and they have a really handy collect in-store option where your order is delivered to your local store and you call in to pick it up at your earliest convenience.
Great for: basically everything – I have gotten really nice shirts, jumpers, jeans, t-shirts shoes etc..
Value for money: 5/5
Accuracy: 95% – The sizes are usually exact and you can return online order problems to your local store.
