I get a lot of questions about which fashion-focused sites I visit when I’m not hanging out on my own. Well, it’s a hodgepodge, for sure. But each serves a specific purpose, with content that keeps me coming back for more!
For straight-up shopping: ShopStyle
I’m not married to a single e-tailer when I’m buying online. Instead, I go directly to Shopstyle. It’s basically a fashion google search. When I’m looking for, say, an emerald green shift dress (I don’t know why, but just go with it) I can type that into the search bar and browse options from a bunch of different stores, both big name and boutique. You can also narrow your search using criteria such as price, color, and brand. I promise I am not getting paid to praise Shopstyle. I just happen to love it.
For inspiration: The Coveted
If you’re looking for unique style inspiration, and not just messy adolescent hipster-esque morning-after looks, check out The Coveted. The creator, Jennine, posts street pics of herself everyday, and I find her choices to be fun, polished, feminine, and always interesting.
For fashion news: Racked
Racked has a national site (aptly named Racked National), and ones specific to New York, Chicago, and L.A.. The local sites are great for keeping up on your sample sales. They’ll often live-blog from within a sale too, letting you know if it’s worth leaving your chair.
For sartorial comic relief: Go Fug Yourself
The two founders’ commentary on celebrity style mishaps are priceless. Often funnier than the mishaps themselves.
For something different: Advanced Style
Advanced Style celebrates the fashion of “the silver-haired set”. It’s very refreshing, and full of chic photos and amazing interviews.
