Which online clothing stores offer fast shipping?
Sometimes, you just need a new outfit fast. Like, tonight. Or tomorrow. Or at the weekend. When that’s the case, where are the best places to shop? THE ICONIC offers three-hour delivery to both Sydney and Melbourne metro areas and next-day delivery for most orders. Saba offers same-day delivery to both Sydney and Melbourne, while David Jones offers same-day delivery to Sydney only. In some cases, stores will offer you free express shipping if you order a certain amount. Surfstitch offers free express delivery on orders over $25.
Which fashion sites stock high-quality clothes?
For high-quality fashion, there are some stores to order from… and some to avoid. ASOS, THE ICONIC, David Jones, SABA, Saks Fifth Avenue, Portmans and Marks & Spencer are all fairly safe as far as quality goes, although the quality varies from store to store. Saks Fifth Avenue sells high-end designers such as Prada and Chloe and will always be of the utmost quality. Other shops sell decent-quality clothes at a more affordable price, including Jeanswest, General Pants Co and Bonds. Some brands will always be better quality than others, so you may have to judge by the brand name rather than the store. For example, We Are Handsome is a high-quality brand of 100% Australian-made high-quality swimwear and is stocked across a number of sites, including Dissh, THE ICONIC, ASOS and more.

Which fashion sites are great for cheap clothes?
If you’re after cheap fashion online, Beginning Boutique, boohoo, Showpo and Missguided are all great sites to find on-trend pieces at affordable prices. Hunt a little further and you’ll find that ASOS’s own brand is on the cheaper end of the clothing spectrum. THE ICONIC’s exclusive brands, Atmos&Here and Spurr, are both cheaper options that are still fashion-forward and of decent quality. Of course, if you find a coupon code for your favourite fashion boutique, you can always shave a little off the end price. Discounts are only a search away. Read more: Where to buy cheap shoes online
