Can you relate to having neither the time nor the inclination to go to the nearest mall? I have lived in Chattanooga for over 5 years, now, and I have been inside our mall (Tennessee’s largest) no more than 10 times, total. I LOVE to find women’s clothing on clearance, but I don’t have time to scour the racks in the stores.
Fortunately, I have learned some tricks for finding cheap women’s clothing stores online. I have a few very reliable websites that I use any time I’m looking for something to add to my wardrobe. Here’s my list of cheap women’s clothing websites. I hope they help you find a bargain!
This is a FANTASTIC site of curated daily deals from a large variety of small businesses all over the internet. Get signed up for their emails and you’ll get an email delivered to your inbox every single day with the latest great finds. They have home decor, accessories, jewelry, and of course, lots of women’s clothing on clearance. You can find killer deals (especially watch out for when stores offer grab bags of clothing for a MAJOR steal).
This store might just be my very favorite! It’s filled to the brim with gently used clothing. I think ThredUp does an EXCELLENT job of quality control; they make it clear if items have a tiny flaw, and if they have more than a tiny flaw, they just don’t sell them. They even run quality control over your items again before shipping them off. I’ve had a few items removed from my cart (and refunded) after they determined that they weren’t in good enough shape to sell, and I’ve had discounts applied when it was determined that the item had a tiny flaw and it wasn’t advertised as such. Additionally, it is now the case that you can make your returns for free as long as you receive store credit for your items. I LOVE this new(ish) feature because you used to have to pay for your returns, and for me, I was spending anywhere from $8-$15 each time. No more of that! Finally, they have an app that’s free and that I highly recommend, as they typically send out a 15% off coupon once a week, or so! I have found quite a large number of really beautiful pieces of clothing from ThredUp. It’s a must! I also have a post all about tips to help you have a successful shopping experience on ThredUp. When you refer friends, you also earn $10 in credit, by the way!
Schoola is another used clothing site, and while I truly do love it (I order from them every other month or so), it is a bit more hit-or-miss than ThredUp. Their quality control is not as good. I’ve received items that were unwearable and that were classified as in “good” shape. The good news is that they have a very nice customer service department. They have always worked with me and made it right without hesitation when I have encountered a problem. They also have a really nice referral program allowing you to give your friends $20 to spend on the site free and clear (and when they spend that free money, you get $20 in your account!). Finally, Schoola has regular sales. It’s not uncommon to receive emails from them offering anywhere from 15-50% off prices. Wait for those sales and you will scoop up some MAJOR deals. They have clothes for moms, too, and I have had success ordering for myself, though most of my finds on this site are for my kids. I should also mention that 40% of every sale goes back to schools, and I think it’s awesome to not only get a really good deal, but to know that almost half of what you did spend is going to schools who could use the money.
This is another site to sign up for their emails. Twice a week you’ll get an email about flash sales they are having, and they are always really good! I have purchased accessories and shoes on this site for mega deals (including fun jewelry pieces that I’ve given as gifts to friends…I paid thrift store prices for brand new stuff!).
5. Stitch Fix
This final online store is admittedly a much trickier one if you are looking for bargain-basement pricing. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. You have to commit to spending at least $20 when you receive a box of 5 items from them. That $20 “styling fee” gets credited to anything that you buy. If you buy nothing, you lose that fee. So you should feel prepared to buy 1 item, at a minimum. I am mentioning Stitch Fix because I believe it is useful to the bargain loving fashionista for two main reasons. First, it saves you TONS of time, especially if you are looking for something quite particular (such as a little black dress for a cocktail party). I think the time it saves you makes the price you pay for the clothes more of a bargain. Second, they have a generous referral program. If you love to share your great finds with others and if you have friends who might want to give Stitch Fix a try after hearing about your experience, you can hand over your referral link and you’ll earn $25 in Stitch Fix credit after your friend’s first fix ships. It would only take getting 4 friends to try them out before finding yourself with $100 in free clothing! Check out my full review here for more info.
Are there any cheap women’s clothing stores online that I missed? I can think of quite a few other places, but I wanted to keep the list focused on the places where I have the best success finding quality stuff at a good price.
