The Under-the-Radar Sites Our Editors Love to Shop
We have to admit that as editors, we’re pretty savvy when it comes to finding the best online sites to shop, for both unique, hard-to-find items as well as the best selections of goods all in one place. While Net-a-Porter and Shopbop will always have a special place in our hearts, sometimes you just want something a little off the beaten path. And in the spirit of generosity, we're sharing our go-to sites with you, dear reader. Consider it a holiday gift.
Scroll down to find out what Who What Wear editors’ favorite low-profile sites are, and to shop their picks!
Site: Mercantile Vintage
"Mercantile Vintage is like enlisting the cool kids to curate the best vintage and offer it to you at an affordable price. It's pure gold. Actually, maybe I shouldn't have shared this with you…” — Nicole Kliest
Site: James Rowland Shop
"Vintage shoes are a very tricky category to shop for, because often they're too dated-looking or too worn. That's why James Rowland Shop is such a gem—it has the most interesting selection of vintage and current shoes. If you're looking to nail a '90s vibe, this is your place." — Kat Collings
"This is my go-to for those indie, under-the-radar bag labels like PB 0110 and Lotuff. Only problem? Scroll through the site once and you'll want to add everything to your cart—not that that's a bad thing." — Bobby Schuessler
"Réalisation is an Australian-based brand with the coolest tops and dresses. The quantity of each design is limited, so it makes for a really special addition to your wardrobe. I've never had a bad night out in my Bianca top!" — Michelle Scanga
"This New York– and Seattle-based store's online shop has the best selection of some of my favorite brands (including Acne Studios and Rachel Comey) and a slew of others—both big names and more obscure. To top it off, the shoe selection is incredible, and the site has great sales (e.g., the one they're having right now…)." — Allyson Payer
Site: Lisa Says Gah
"I love Lisa Says Gah for finding fresh, quality pieces. Plus, the site is ethically mindful, which makes every purchase feel special and totally necessary." — Carson Olivares
"I'm constantly refreshing Leif to see what's new. It's a Brooklyn-based site that has fun, colorful home décor, jewelry, accessories, stationery, and more. I have to keep myself from spending too much on the site, but everything is so cool and distinct that it's hard to resist!" — Erin Fitzpatrick
