5 Affordable Online Brands For When You’re Over Fast-Fashion

Most of the time, quick fixes aren’t the answer to the problem. Like sticking duct-tape on a pipe leak or gluing a heel back onto a shoe, you’re solving a problem just temporarily. But, there’s something to be said about quick fixes in the wardrobe department. While we’re all about investment buys and shopping sustainably, there are times when buying into an of-the-moment trend is all you need to feel a little more creative when getting dressed in the morning.


That’s when it’s useful to have a list of affordable brands that will help you get your fix without having to run to Zara and buy the same item everyone else has. There are five we’ve come across lately, debating whether patent boots or a new plaid coat will be the answer to our fall wardrobe woes. The best part? They’re all insanely affordable.


For the next time you’re sick of everything in your closet, bookmark the five e-tailers below.
