No matter how hard I work to ensure that I'm always prepared for whatever life throws at me (sartorially speaking, at least), without fail, occasions often arise in which I realize that I need something I don't have. But I'm also an online-shopping devotee who isn't fond of visiting brick-and-mortar stores. Because of these reasons, over the years, I've figured out which sites won't let me down when I need something—and fast. I'm talking wide selection, quick and affordable shipping, and great customer service.
Something that I've realized after moving from the West Coast to the East Coast a few years ago is that some of the sites that I used to rely on for quick shipping have changed, due to where they ship from. (Not that this stops me from ordering from them—I just have to plan ahead a little more.)
Ready to bookmark these sites the next time you're in a wardrobe-induced panic? Keep scrolling for my recommendations and shop my current picks from each.
Newcomer Verishop is increasingly becoming one of my most shopped sites. It offers a great variety of brands (both affordable and designer) and plenty of staple basics. Shipping is always free (yes, really) and most items over $35 are eligible for two-day shipping.
Staud Wells Sleeveless Midi Dress ($255)
Agolde 90s Pinch Waist High Rise Straight Fit Jeans ($188)
I know I'm stating the obvious here, but if you just order from Shopbop by 7 p.m. CT, the free shipping option will get your item to you in three days. Even better, if you log in with your Amazon Prime account, you get free two-day shipping or next-day shipping for a mere $3.99 per item.
Levi's Ribcage Boot Jeans ($98)
Yuzefi Mini Fortune Bag ($555)
Ulla Johnson Lulu Tank ($195)
Miraculously, ordering from UK-based MatchesFashion means free duty-free shipping with an arrival on the East Coast within one to two days, and usually just as quickly on the West Coast. Plus, the customer service is as good as it gets.
Jacquemus Bahia Plunge-Neck Tie-Front Blouse ($570)
Ganni Smocked-Bodice Organic Cotton-Blend Midi Dress ($395)
Bottega Veneta The Lido Intrecciato Leather Sandals ($1270)
You're probably already aware, but I'll say it anyway: An Amazon Prime membership is worth every penny. Two-day shipping is free, next-day shipping is $3.99 per item, and same-day shipping on certain items is usually less than $10.
Roamans Soft Knit Shorts ($23)
New Balance 990v5 ($175)
The Drop Oversized Shirt Jacket ($70)
5. FWRD AND REVOLVE
The Range Division Rib Button Front Midi Dress ($295)
Majorelle Corie Top in White ($158)
If you sign up for an ASOS Premier Delivery membership for $19 per year, you'll get your items from the UK-based e-tailer in just two days. Otherwise, it's usually two-day delivery for $8 (also not bad at all).
ASOS Design Longline Trench Coat in Stone ($79)
Topshop Neci Mule Sandals in Black ($67)
7. PIXIE MARKET
We Who What Wear editors are partial to Pixie Market's affordable statement tops, and they'll arrive at your door in two to three days via USPS Priority Mail. (Shipping is free for orders over $75.)
Pixie Market Sonia Keyhole Midi Dress ($129)
Pixie Market Beige Cotton Wide Leg Pants ($134)
Pixie Market Chain Link Knit Bolero ($105)
I don't need additional incentives to shop at Net-a-Porter, as I'm already hooked for many reasons, but it doesn't hurt that the e-tailer offers free three-day delivery and $20 for next business day. It's another one with impeccable customer service to boot.
Porte & Paire Suede Sandals ($215)
Loewe Small Leather-Trimmed Woven Raffia Tote ($450)
Especially on the East Coast (most items ship from Virginia), Madewell orders often arrive within a couple days. Standard shipping is free if you're a Madewell Insider (it's free to sign up) and just $15 for guaranteed expedited shipping.
Madewell Embroidered Flutter-Sleeve Top ($82)
Madewell The Perfect Vintage Jean: Leather Edition ($398)
10. & Other Stories
& Other Stories is one of my favorites for chic separates and pretty dresses. The brand offers free shipping on all orders over $100. If you’re based in Manhattan, you’ll receive your order within 2–3 business days, otherwise it takes 1–4 business days using standard delivery (which costs $6).
& Other Stories Puff Sleeve Jacquard Mini Dress ($129)
& Other Stories Leather Thong Strap Sandals ($129)
