I love finding ways to save money and sharing them, but it had never crossed my mind to compile a list of my favourite money-saving fashion sites until I was contacted about Fashion Voucher's competition. It's such a great idea as so many of us readily share our favourite fashion brands, but canny fashion bargain-finding tools seem a little harder to come across on the web. 

   So, this list isn't just about fashion retailers. I also wanted to share with you some pretty snazzy websites that sniff out the bargains for you. This means less hassle for us! But more importantly you still get the brand names, styles and current trends many of us hanker after, but these tools will help your precious cash go further.
 

   I was really surprised when I discovered last year that Oxfam sell second hand clothes, shoes and accessories online. It'd never crossed my mind that a charity shop would sell it's goods online, but it's actually pretty handy! It's a bit more expensive than shopping in your local charity shop, but it's easier to locate what you are looking for and they offer free delivery! You can search for all your favourite brands such as ASOS, Zara, Carvela.
 



   Everyone has heard of Amazon. But not everyone realises that Amazon sell clothing, shoes and accessories. Better than this though, many brands sell their clearance and sale items through Amazon - brands such as Religion, AX Paris, Republic and Vero Moda. Money Saving Expert have this clever little Amazon bargain finder tool that will help you find the best discounts on what you're looking for. It really is handy, give it a go! Here's the link to the Amazon fashion outlet - you'll spot a ton of steals!




 
    My Style Search is the most intelligent tool out of the bunch - it's kind of an online catalogue of fashion. You can search for an item, such as a dress, by neckline, fit and so on. How smart is that?! There's also a huge sale section and a dresses under £20 section. So you could potentially find your perfect dress at an incredible price! It's also a great if you lust after designer goods as well as high street and online retailers as the brands in the catalogue range from Miu Mui and YSL to ASOS and Matalan.



   I came across this site an couple of years ago now in a magazine and I think you'll find it extremely useful if you're a fan of sales like I am! Signing up is easy - you select the brands you want emails about, how frequently you want to receive them. What makes this website extra super is that you enter your size(s) so that you will only be told about products in the sale that are available in your size. Perfect! Again, you can select from designer or high street brands like Chloe and Miss Selfridge. Here are some of my top picks from my recent Shop It To Me emails.





   My number one website is a clear winner to me. Next 2 Nowt source 'famous name' brand items and sell them on for incredible prices. Topshop and Dorothy Perkins are just a couple of these brands.  Some of the items have been used (although still in very good condition) and this is detailed in the item's description. They also sell unbranded items for unbelievable prices - they literally have thousands of fashion goods!  The clearance section (here) has some ridiculously great deals. I've now used the site a couple of times and have been extremely impressed with the service and clothes I've received. Clothing in Topshop that I've loved but felt was overpriced have popped up on Next 2 Nowt at half the price! Go and check it out for yourself, it's such a good idea and has certainly saved me a lot of dosh to date!

    1. No problem! Glad it's useful :) It is more expensive than the stores, but I like that things are easier to find. So it might work out cheaper in some cases than having to pay for travel to several charity shops if you live outside a town / city like me :) xx
