Upgrading your wardrobe has never been as easy, affordable, and fun!


Zara is an all-time favourite for the proud trend-spotter with an eye for chic, classic, and urban styles. Headquartered in Galicia, Spain, Zara also has more than 2,259 stores in 96 countries worldwide (if you prefer in-person sprees).

Zara’s fashion-forward line-up includes every imaginable clothing item. In one online shopping spree, you can revamp your wardrobe to include:

  • Chinos
  • Overshirts
  • Knit tops & tees
  • Perfumes
  • Woven handbags
  • Blazers
The online collection also features men’s and children’s clothing to upgrade every wardrobe in the household!

And, you can do so almost always at a discount. It’s not unusual to see original Zara price tags scribbled out and replaced with a far lower dollar amount — often 25% off or more.

Nordstrom Rack

Nordstrom Rack is the discount arm of the high-end retailer Nordstrom. First launched in 2014, over four decades after Nordstrom’s inception, Nordstrom Rack is notorious for offering unbelievable 70% discounts.

The store stocks its digital shelves with the trendiest brands, including Adidas, Michael Kors, Madewell, and Nike. Whether you’re hoping to fill hangers with pullovers or shoe racks with hiking shoes, a Rack spree is all you need.

And, every digital visit is full of surprises!

You’ll always discover entire pages worth of flash sales. If you arrive before the 48-hour countdown clock ticks down, you might just walk away with 60% off swimsuits or fashionable tops under $15.


The theory dates back more than 20 years ago when the retailer changed the world’s perception of women’s pants. The theory is still one of the most innovative online stores today, focusing on confidence, materials, and style.

The store now offers a subtle combination of chic, low-profile, and trendy. They have both men's and women's lines for the high-end clothing enthusiast.

If you’re ready to splurge on a complete closet overhaul, you can restock your hangers and drawers with:

  • Professional blazers
  • Organic cotton dresses
  • Cropped cardigans
  • Swimwear
  • Comfortable loungewear

Once that sticker shock wears off, you’ll realize you’re doing the world some good. The theory puts sustainability and the planet at the forefront when designing its high-end clothing collection!

Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix is an all-in-one wardrobe-upgrader that changes the way you’ll see shopping forever.

All you have to do is answer a few questions in Stitch Fix’s “Style Quiz” so that its expert stylists can learn more about your style and budget. Then, chip in a $20 styling fee to receive a box full of potential clothes.

That $20 fee will help to cover any items you want to keep. The rest, you can send back to Stitch Fix at no extra cost!

The best part?

Once you start revamping your wardrobe, Stitch Fix will begin tailoring outfits around what you keep. You then have the option to buy complete outfits instantly from the web instead of waiting around for your next delivery.

Forever 21

Forever 21 was once the pinnacle of nearly every mall in America. But as sales declined and international stores shut down, the California-based fast-fashion retailer transitioned to a wildly popular online clothing store.

And, if you’ve ever strolled past a Forever 21 in-person, you know you can deck out an entire closet in one trip. We’re talking about bodysuits, graphic tees, stilettos, jeans, swimwear, and more.

Your favourite part will be the low prices!
With $25 dresses, $10 crop tops, and $35 jeans, you can create the perfect business professional or casual summer outfit for less than $100!

Williams & Kent

Williams & Kent offers trendy, authentic, and luxury men's clothing. Their clothes bring an air of sophistication to men who enjoy dressing well.

Whether you have an upcoming yacht dinner, Cancun vacation, deal-making business meeting, or summertime wedding, W&K can dress you for it all.

Some of their items include:

  • Knit long sleeve shirts
  • Sportcoats
  • Twill trousers
  • Button-downs
  • Loafers
The luxurious style certainly comes with a high-end price tag. However, there’s no doubt you’ll be the best dressed at your next showy event.

There’s also a clearance section where you can snag luxury polos, denim jeans, and sport coats for up to 35% off. Just because they’re on sale, that doesn’t mean they’ve lost their allure!


If you’re on a tight budget or don’t want to wait around for package delivery, there are other less conventional alternatives:

Facebook Marketplace

You can buy gently used (or even brand new) clothes at a steep discount. You may even discover a rare hidden gem — like vintage designer outfits or your favourite discontinued brands!

Happy shopping!
