There's one good reason online fashion stores are the best: You don't have to interact with anyone else. Not that I want to sound like a miserable old woman, but sometimes going into town to shop is awful. Even as I type these words, the thought of having to wade through a load of people at a store entrance only to passive-aggressively bump elbows and tut loudly at people makes me feel tired. Thank goodness for the internet, then. The sheer amount of online stores means that you never have to leave your house again to go shopping. Hurrah!
While I'm sure our ancestors never imagined the beauty of next-day delivery, it's one of the best things about being able to shop online. From designer to vintage, as well as brilliant high-street buys, there are plenty of places to shop while you sit in the comfort of your own home, wine in hand. Even better, you can try on the items at home (goodbye, unflattering changing-room lighting), and then send back if it doesn't fit. Just how did we survive before we had it? Keep scrolling for our roundup of the best online fashion stores that you should keep bookmarked.
