The Online Shopping Awards

Best Bargain Fashion Website:

ASOS not only hosts an adorable and affordable selection, but it is constantly updated and the sheer size of their product offering will make you dizzy.  They are constantly having incredible sales and their search function makes it easy to stick to a budget, since you can filter search results by price as well as type.

Best Vintage Vibe:

NastyGal offers a variety of vintage items including denim vests and varsity jackets to wear over the rocker tees that they’re best known for.  They feature some easily affordable articles as well as splurge-worthy dresses, tops and pants from luxury brands such as Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino, and Burberry.

Best Swimwear:

While shopping for swimwear online may be daunting, Everything But Water has perfected the art of finding the ideal fit for you.  Their Perfect Fit Finder takes into account your body type and preference, then returns a personalized shopping experience that only includes suits that fit your specifications.

Most Unique Way to Buy Unmentionables:

Taking the swimwear personalized model to the next level, True & Co quizzes potential customers on their favorite bra, body shape, desired fit, and preferences before displaying any products.  Based on the answers to the quiz, they curate a personalized shop of bras that accounts for sizing variations across different brands, while fitting into the customer’s preferences.  They are so confident in the desirability of their choices that they offer an option for risk-free, at-home try on.  Pay a refundable deposit, choose three bras to try on at home, plus they’ll add two more they think you’ll love, and then you simply return the ones you don’t want, free of charge.

Best Return Policy:

Zappos is the perfect website for those of us who like to buy now, decide later, because they offer a 365 day return window.  As long as the product is unworn and includes the original packaging, the site will offer a full refund.   The shipping is even prepaid if you log on to your Zappos account and print out the label. Fun fact: If you happen to place your order on February 29th (during a leap year), you actually have until the following leap year to make your return – meaning four years later!
