3 Online Stores College Girls Don’t Already Know About

Online shopping has become a real problem in my life. Or rather, for my bank account. I love online shopping and browsing the best online shopping websites so much more than shopping in person these days. It seems so much less stressful, I can take my time browsing the website, and it arrives at my house in a pretty package just days later. Kinda like Christmas morning 😉

But really. Online shopping is the best, and we all know it. I usually order from places like Forever 21/ASOS, but there are so many shops out there that are both inexpensive and trendy that I have yet to discover.

So today, I’m sharing the best online shopping sites that you may have not already heard about. If you like stores like Morning Lavender, H&M, and more…you’re in the right place! These stores are my tried and true, so get your debit cards ready.

Best Online Shopping for College-Aged Girls

1. Lulus

Lulu’s has THE CUTEST clothes and is a true testament you don’t have to spend a ton of money to dress well. I especially love their shoes + dresses.

Online Shopping Sites for College Girls Inexpensive

I would describe Lulu’s as being perfect for the everyday college girl who wants to have an awesome wardrobe. Lulu’s has items that are great to wear with just jeans and sneakers or dress up for a night out on the town with your girls. If you are looking for somewhere to shop online that will never let you down, Lulu’s is the place to hit up. They are constantly releasing new pieces into their stock, which I love.

2. Boohoo

Boohoo is my most favorite online store to order from. It’s a UK based brand, but they ship to the US also.

I order from Boohoo all of the time because their styles are honestly just too cute. I love shopping Boohoo for their bodysuits and shoes especially. Plus, they are always having good sales/discount codes that are sometimes up to 50% off your whole order.

*Helpful hint: follow your favorite shops on Instagram/Twitter to never miss a flash sale again!*

3. SheIn

This is another staple in my online shopping escapades. SheIn is a diamond in the rough, and I was introduced to it randomly back in high school.

SheIn is based and orders are fulfilled out of China, so there are a couple things to keep in mind. First of all, shipping takes a little bit longer than other brands. I’ve ordered 5-10 pieces from SheIn before and had the pieces come shipped separately, one piece at a time before. Don’t be alarmed! The rest of your package will get there.

Another thing about SheIn is that the sizing chart is a little bit different than stores in America. Because of this, I’ve found that SheIn‘s clothes run to be pretty small. My favorite things to order from SheIn are flowy dresses and graphic tees.

  • Great post, and I love the look of your site! Boohoo is one of my faves!


    • Emma Lenhart

      Thank you so much Patti!

  • Shein is such a great site for pretty, inexpensive clothing! The other one that I love is Shop Morning Lavender and Chichi London (who you can get on ASOS but it’s cheaper on the actual site).

    Great post!


    • Emma Lenhart

      Yes! And I will check out Shop Morning Lavender. Thanks for the recommendations!

  • Raquel

    I used to use a site called RoseJane and it drove me crazy how fake the clothes were. The pictures on the site were gorgeous, but the actual product would be a wreck! I’ve heard great things about Boohoo though, so I definitely need to check them out.

    • Emma Lenhart

      That is so frustrating 🙁 Boohoo never disappoints me!

  • Blondes & Bagels

    SheIn is toooootally up and coming…and also totally hit or miss 😉 I’ve had some amazing purchases from there and then one dress that legitimately wasn’t even the same dress that was in the photo online. I swear. But I still keep going back!

    • Emma Lenhart

      It is hit or miss…that’s why I usually stick to tee shirts!

  • Wow, thanks so much! Sheln has some really great stuff.

    • Emma Lenhart

      No problem 🙂

  • Thanks for sharing, Emma! These are so cute. I’m sending them to my sister too. 🙂

    • Emma Lenhart

      Awesome, I hope she likes it! Thanks for reading 🙂

  • I’ve heard of Boohoo and SheIn, but I’ve never checked them out! It’s nice to hear an honest opinion on them & the quality before purchasing. Thanks for sharing!
    xo, Haley
