The best online shopping sites every woman should know

Online shopping is now part of our daily culture, and most days on lunch we’ll find ourselves browsing the pages of different sites looking the most up-to-date fashion trends.

But which sites are you frequenting most? We’ve compiled a list of our favourite site-only websites that you won’t find on the high street.

ASOS are dominating the online shopping sites, without a doubt. Although everyone knows about them, we couldn't not include them on the list.

Not only do they stock their own brands, but they’ve accumulated plenty of our much-loved high street stores too, like River Island, Warehouse and Mango. They also stock less-known brands like Frock and Frill, Virgos Lounge and Self-Portrait, which can open up a whole other side of the fashion world to you. We love ASOS Premier too, a yearly subscription service which allows for free next delivery on every order and also gives special discounts too, for only £14.99 for the year, it’s a must-have.

Boohoo follows a similar sort of guise as Missguided with on-trend pieces that are updated on a regular basis, so if you don’t find anything today, chances are you will tomorrow. They also a have a plus size range to ensure every woman is catered for.

Pretty Little Thing

The son of the man who owns Boohoo, Umar Kamani launched his own site just four years ago shipping just 20 packages a week. Now it's a global brand and flies out over 20,000 orders worldwide each day. They recently launched the brand properly in the US with Kylie Jenner hosting the launch party and she's featured them a few times on her Instagram too. Not only that, Sofia Ritchie is fronting their latest campaign.

Miss Pap, Tomorrow’s fashion today. The site is filled with fashionable and on-trend pieces at great prices that won’t leave your bank account quivering. Their collections showcase the best in current fashion and make staying on-trend easy and affordable.

Much like ASOS this is a great destination site that has so many different brands to shop in one place including Oasis, Miss Selfridge and Kurt Geiger, and there are celebrity collections from Myleene Klass and Rochelle Humes that never fail too.

Very Exclusive

From Shop Direct comes Very Exclusive, the brainchild of Sarah Curran, formerly of The site was inspired by her issue with the fashion world alienating customers because they’re not the right size or profile.

It offers an edit of the best designer diffusion lines, like See by Chloe and M for Missoni, as well as the cream of the crop from the high street, like Reiss, Karen Millen and Whistles.

Long Tall Sally

All of you tall, beautiful women, if you don’t already know about Long Tall Sally, then where have you been living? Long Tall Sally is the first stop in fashionable clothing for women 5”8(173cms) and above. Their collection offers a range of clothes including jeans, trousers, dresses, active wear plus a variety of accessories.

Polished, contemporary and minimal design embodies the Lavish Alice brand. Their clothes are striking with clean cut lines that make it extremely sexy and easy to wear. You can shop select pieces on ASOS and Very, but head straight to their site to see the full collection of modern styling.

So technically it’s not clothing but we couldn’t miss Cult Beauty off the list because they’re brought to light so many of our favourite beauty brands.

They curate the best of the best and you can pretty much guarantee that when you order something from here you’re going to love it. Some of our favourite brands include Pixi, Alpha-H, Anastasia Beverley Hills and Oskia.

Rare London

When we head to this site, we’re looking for party pieces. Rare London has the fashion-forward, stylish and sexy pieces that’ll give you oodles of confidence.

AX Paris

This site still has plenty of trend-led pieces but at a higher price point than La Sula or Miss Pap. But this definitely shows in the quality of items. What we love about this site is that it provides clothing for a variety of different body types.

La Sula

Yet another trend-led site that brings the most fashion-forward pieces at incredible prices. This site has plenty of celebrity fans, including the TOWIE ladies and the Geordie Shore girls, they regularly share their favourite pieces on Instagram.

Look Fantastic

Look Fantastic is another beauty site that we really didn’t want to leave off the list. With a huge array of brands there is everything you could possible need for your beauty routine on this site. Look Fantastic are definitely standouts when it comes to special offers, make sure you sign up to their newsletter because you get plenty of exclusive discount codes that you don’t want to miss.

For those looking for the designer fashion brands, then this is the site for you. is the sister site to Net-A-Porter and is filled with designer pieces at super slashes prices. Think Herve Leger, Balmain, Moschino and Diane Von Furstenberg at much more affordable prices. You have to be quick with this one, though, they only have select sizes in small numbers, so once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Shopbop may be an American site, but with free delivery on orders over $100 to the UK, there’s no need to cross this site off your list. It began as a destination for relatively unknown denim brands, but has expanded into a leading fashion retailer. On the site you'll find a plethora of designer fashion that's perfect for every taste and style.

Missguided always has their finger on the fashion pulse with ranges that are on-trend and updated daily. The highly covetable collection with Nicole Scherzinger proved a hit too, filled with sexy and seductive designs.

Are there any more we should add to the list?
