shopping apps

Shopping is so much better when done from the comfort of your bed! Check out our list of the very best online shopping apps to find a new bikini or pair of heels, then just sit back while they come to you.

Thanks to the accessibility of our smartphones, shopping for the latest and greatest no longer requires a trip to the mall.

Here are a few great online shopping apps to get fashionable and affordable clothing for men and women.

POSHMARK

Poshmark is the ultimate shopping app for finding gently used (read: discounted) clothing and consigning items you no longer wear.

No space in your closet? Make room and money at the same time! Then fill it right back up with new stuff, because it’s what we do best.

ZARA

There’s an art to shopping at Zara.

We’d consider ourselves something of a pro (OK, fine, more like a stalker) and that includes keeping this app on standby at all times.

It makes it easier to filter through the large assortment, as well as keep tabs on fresh arrivals before they sell out.

AMAZON

When you just need a little bit of everything, Amazon is the way to go (but you already knew that).

Put your Prime account to good use with this app that lets you browse millions of products, scan barcodes, and read reviews until the end of the internet.

RENT THE RUNWAY

When you’d rather die than wear the same dress to different events, Rent the Runway comes to the rescue. This app gives you instant access to formal gowns, cocktail dresses, and accessories, all available to rent at a fraction of the retail price.

It’s essential when you have an unlimited membership, which lets you rent up to three items at a time for a flat monthly fee.

ASOS

Oh ASOS, how we love thee. Keep this mega e-retailer on your phone for the ultimate selection of trendy and affordable fashion at all times.

Shipping is free for orders over $40, and the app can even sync up to your Apple watch for sale alerts. Sorry in advance, paycheck!

ETSY

We’re sure you’re already familiar with this amazing online marketplace, but the app makes shopping that much easier. Etsy is our one-stop shop for unique, handmade gifts and special finds that stand out from the crowd.

Browse through the extensive selection, communicate with shop owners, and even track your order, all with this handy shopping app.

GILT

Gilt’s millions of members are on to something. This flash-sale site is our favorite for luxurious finds at a discounted price. It has everything from clothing to home decor to even tickets to fabulous local events.

Where else can you add a trip to Miami, a cocktail dress, and a salon blowout to the same cart? Another benefit to downloading: some sales are exclusive to the mobile app.

SHOPBOP

Shopbop.com has one of the best fashion and accessory selections on the web.

Here’s why you should be shopping the app, too: An easy-to-use interface lets you browse over 800 labels on the go, from contemporary to high-end designers, and you can track your favorites just by clicking a heart icon.

SPRING

Similar to Shopstyle, Spring aggregates items from over 1,500 brands into one simplified shopping space.

But here, you won’t need to make separate purchases. Everything goes into the same cart! Spring also offers free shipping and returns, and it prides itself on a commitment to customer service.

THE REAL REAL

While Poshmark is popular for all types of items, The Real Real is our go-to for pre-owned luxury goods.

This app makes it super easy to shop the latest arrivals of things like Chanel bags, designer clothing, or even a Rolex watch all of which are authenticated by its in-house experts.

KEEP SHOPPING

We’ve all been there. You’ve built the best collection of online outfit inspo pictures, only to realize they can’t be shopped most of the time, anyway.

The Keep Shopping app solves that problem with a scrollable feed of items that you can buy on the spot. It also shows when something goes on sale, and what’s trending now.

Forever 21

If you thought that Forever 21 was just a store you could visit in your local mall, think again. It actually also has a great online component that allows young adults (their target demographic) to browse the latest trends.

Best of all, they’re not overly expensive either. Also, since you have likely been to a Forever 21 in person, and tried on their clothes, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what will fit you when purchasing items online.

All of these are great places for online shopping because you get incredible savings while purchasing fashionable items.

Next time you are shopping online, browse through some of these stores.
