We have witnessed an extrodinary invention that many couldn’t imagine living without….the internet. Using it in our everyday lives as a common tool either at home, work or on the go to communicate, search and buy the world couldn’t be happier(and lazier).
Now at the comfort of your own home, you are able to search through anything and everything to do with fashion without having to spend the day running from shop to shop for that perfect dress you were after. Many fashion outlets have seen this as a great way to allow shoppers to check out the latest trends, buy products and get it sent through the post so you don’t have to budge. Noticing a great opportunity, it is understandable that there are more and more recognised and trustworthy online only fashion stores to check out and buy from which are becoming increasingly popular.
As Seen On Screen, known as ASOS is my all time favourite online fashion store. It really does have everything you could ask for from a fashion store. With competive prices, free delivery(even international!) and trusty advice from style professionals, it really is your all-in-one online fashion friend that could easily become your homepage, wherever you are in the world.
Established in June 2000, ASOS.com is the UK’s largest independent online fashion and beauty retailer, offering over 40,000 branded and own label product lines across womenswear, menswear, footwear, accessories, jewellery and beauty with over 2,000 new product lines being introduced ever week. Aimed primarily at fashion forward 16-34 year olds, ASOS .com attracts over 11 million visitors a month.
Heres what the professionals are saying about the site:
“The online fashion store is ablaze with hot designers“-Marie Claire
“In just ten years ASOS.com has gone from niche get the look website to massive internet phenomenon.“-Grazia
“ASOS.com’s trend led mix of clothes, accessories and beauty products is perfect for lunchtime browsing.”-The Guardian
What I adore about ASOS is their online page. The set out and design jumps out at you and really catches your eye. As you can see from the picture, there are many tabs to chose from including my personal favourite; fashion finder. Clicking on this new tab will lead you to different sections of trends that are hot this season. Depending on your style, you can chose which section to click and it will show you all of the most stylish clothes from the chosen trend, giving you a choice from designer to bargain buys. Quick, easy and convenient when wanting to find something from a specific trend.
I’m only 5 ft, and any petite person out there will understand my frustration when trying to find clothes. Dresses are too long, bottoms are too baggy, and you look like your wearing your boyfriends shirt. ASOS are one of the few online shops who have realised this, dedicating a whole page for little people like me :). Some high street shops will offer clothes in petite, but have a very small collection to chose from. ASOS have a great petite selection in every category, stocking clothes that are available right down to a size 4!
ASOS’s own brand compromises of fashionable, in trend clothes which are bang on budget. Many of their clothes and accessories are influenced by celebrity style spots, which means you can steal the high end fashion look for a fraction of the price!
Many people tend to worry about buying online, including the price of delivery and returns. ASOS is one of the only fashion online shops that I have come across to offer free delivery AND returns! Not only this, but students get a further 10% discount with a valid NUS card!
ASOS has the ultimate budget attitude and is perfect for young, trendy students across the world!
