Which fashion sites stock high-quality clothes?
For high-quality fashion, there are some stores to order from… and some to avoid. ASOS, THE ICONIC, David Jones, Saba, Saks Fifth Avenue, Portmans and Marks & Spencer are all fairly safe as far as quality goes, although the quality varies from store to store. Saks Fifth Avenue sells high-end designers such as Prada and Chloe and will always be of the utmost quality. Other shops sell decent-quality clothes at a more affordable price, including Jeanswest, General Pants Co, Bonds and Me and Moo. Some brands will always be better quality than others, so you may have to judge by the brand name rather than the store. For example, We Are Handsome is a high-quality brand of 100% Australian-made high-quality swimwear and is stocked across a number of sites, including Dissh, THE ICONIC, ASOS and more.

Which fashion sites are great for cheap clothes?
If you’re after cheap fashion online, Beginning Boutique, Boohoo, Showpo and Missguided are all great sites to find on-trend pieces at affordable prices. Hunt a little further and you’ll find that ASOS’s own brand is on the cheaper end of the clothing spectrum. THE ICONIC’s exclusive brands, Atmos&Here and Spurr, are both cheaper options that are still fashion-forward and of decent quality. Of course, if you find a coupon code for your favourite fashion boutique, you can always shave a little off the end price. Discounts are only a search away. Read more: Where to buy cheap shoes online

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
