Below you'll find our ever-evolving list of the best places to shop online, ordered with the highest-rated stores on top... so make your opinion known and vote-up your favorite stores!
1. Shop Akira
Shop Akira offers up the best of hip, indie fashions by carrying designers such as Sam Edelman, Jeffrey Campbell and Erin Wasson. The site's offerings are perfect for those stylish girls looking to rock a sexy, edgy look. With reasonably priced clothing items such as dresses and tops for less than $50, your wallet won't take a beating from shopping on Akira.
LuLu's has got to be one of best stores on this list. Their clothing items are affordable, chic and right on trend. And as a lover of fashion, you should be pretty thrilled with LuLus' shoe offerings. If you can't afford a pair of Jeffrey Campbell's signature platform shoes (which the site also carries), you can opt for less expensive and just as incredible options with brands like Mixx Kay 07 and Shoe Republic LA.
3. Nasty Gal
NastyGal features a variety of chic, edgy clothing to suit all your indie shopping desires. In addition to it's standard brands and collections the site also offers authentic vintage finds, and fortunately it’s all pretty affordable.
4. Forever 21
This is the-go-to store for many-a-girl. With more locations than Urban Outfitters, and an inventory bigger than you can imagine, Forever 21 is a force of nature in the clothing business. They've probably also got the best prices out of any store on this list.
5. Urban Outfitters
Urban Outfitters commercialized the "indie", thrift-store look early enough and on such a massive scale that they are kind of required to be on this list. Pretty much every mall in America has one of these stores, and almost everyone in America has at least one article of their clothing.
Threadscence has everything you could want when it comes to indie-fashions. Featuring all the latest trends, the site offers clothing, accessories and home décor. It’s reasonably priced and all within short reach. And if you don't know what you're looking for, but you still want to update your wardrobe, their lookbook is great for finding fashion inspiration.
Karmaloop has set out to become a one-stop-shop for both guys and girls. They've got a pretty amazing selection of apparel, with a hip-hop, street-style influenced selection, and brands like Mink Pink, Dolce Vita and tons more for girls.
On a mission to rid the world of ugly shoes, Solestruck offers an abundance of trendy shoe styles and designers to satisfy the tastes of any footwear fetishist. If it’s spiked leather booties that you crave, chunky retro platforms or T.U.K. creepers, you’ll be sure to find the right shoe to complete your hipster look.
9. Revolve Clothing
Revolve offers the very best of contemporary fashion. The site carries brands like Marc by Marc Jacobs and Tracy Reese, so if you don’t mind splurging a bit (as Dolly Parton once said, "You'd be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap."), Revolve is one of your best bets on finding ridiculously fashionable hipster wears.
10. Alternative Apparel
When you're on the hunt for cotton basics like t-shirts and hoodies, Alternative Apparel is the place to go for men or women. Think of it as an alternative to American Apparel. The better alternative.
Missguided is an online store that offers the latest trends to their customers at prices that won’t break the bank. Whether you're looking for that perfect crop top and high waist skirt, or your next favorite maxi dress, Missguided has the pieces you want as soon as the trends hit.
12. Gypsy Warrior
Gypsy Warrior is a great on-line shipping destination for the adventuresome fashionista looking to add some bohemian glamor to her wardrobe. With an affordable price point, it's easy to scoop up some of the most trendiest pieces like crop tops, mini-dresses and cut-offs all in one shop!
If your style is more about comfy, low-key basics, theurbanapparel is a site you’ll covet. With items like racer back tanks and bodycon skirts, their merchandise is perfect for those trying to experiment with the hipster look without much fuss.
If you’re a fan of Urban Outfitters, you’ll dig what Anthropologie has to offer. While both Urban Outfitters and Athropologie are owned by the same company, Anthropologie’s overall aesthetic is a bit more bohemian and eclectic than Urban Outfitters. And don’t be discouraged by their higher prices, Anthropologie’s sales items are most definitely worth browsing.
15. Pixie Market
If the thought of dropping $150 on a sweater doesn’t faze you, Pixie Market is the perfect place to get your hipster fashion fix. The site offers some stand-out indie fashion pieces that’ll pump up any wardrobe, and if you’re discouraged by the cost don’t fret – there are always sales.

With origins in the UK, Topshop has made its way across the pond and setup shop here in the US with flagship stores in New York and Chicago. Opening its doors in 1964 in Britain, Topshop has the perfect mix of eclectic Brit-inspired merchandise for any hipster chic wardrobe.
