The top online clothes shopping sites

Print Friendly

Since online clothes shopping took off in the 21st century, conventional shop opening hours mean very little to fashion fans. No matter the time of day or night, you simply need to open a web browser and visit your favourite virtual store to buy new clothes in a few clicks.

Gone are the days when people were wary of buying clothes without trying them on first: free returns and exchanges at most major online shops mean that unwanted or ill-fitting goods can be sent back in a flash. But with so many to choose from, which online clothes shops are worth your time

Department store websites

Just as they once did on the high street, great British department stores like Marks and Spencer and Debenhams are leading the charge online too. On the M&S website, you can buy everything from dresses and boots to pyjamas and bras, not forgetting their extensive food, wine and homeware sections too. In fact, if your size isn’t available in a Marks and Spencer’s shop, the sales assistant will most likely tell you to order it online instead – so the selection is actually much larger on their website than in-store.

On the Debenhams website, there seems to always be a sale of some variety, so you’ll find fashion bargains without leaving your living room. This site also has a range of handy buying guides, so if you’re not sure what size will work best for your figure, a size guide will let you know which measurements you’ll need to fulfil.

John Lewis also has an excellent website for men’s and women’s clothes, as well as beauty and homeware products. All three of these department stores offer a Click and Collect service. This means you can order your clothes online and pick them up from your nearest store, so you won’t have to hang around at home for your order to be delivered.

Online-only clothes shops

It would have been unthinkable 20 years ago but some of today’s leading clothing brands in the UK have online-only outlets. The most influential clothing label in the UK, Asos, fits this model and has been enormously successful with it. Although their clothes are generally targeted at teenagers and 20-something men and women, there’s a huge range to browse here. So if you’re older and looking for something a bit different, you won’t be short of choice.

Similarly, isme is another excellent fashion website. If you’re looking for a new dress to wear to a party or a wedding, there are some excellent options here. And if you need to buy clothes regularly for growing children and don’t want to leave the house, Tesco’s Clothing website means you’re just a few clicks away from a new uniform on your doorstep.

What’s more, online clothes shopping has even led to the revival of stores that were forced to close on the high street years ago. Littlewoods, for instance, has resurrected itself online after its last shops closed in 2005. Now, it’s building itself back up as and pleasing a new generation of fashionistas with its fantastic range of clothing.
