6 eBay Fashion Stores Your Closet Will Love

Illustrated by Mary Galloway.
Style envy is normal. It happens to most everyone, most every day. Usually it manifests as a casual ogling of a coworker, BFF, or complete stranger for that matter, followed by an impulsive, "Where did you get that?!" The majority of the time, the answer is, "Oh, I just picked it up at [insert fast-fashion retailer here]." This is comforting, knowing you, too, could easily have that same head-turning piece for hella cheap. But on occasion the response is more like, "I found it on eBay." Our reaction: mad respect.

You see, though eBay's a known fashion mecca that's been booming for years, people tend to imagine a long, labyrinth-like journey to find an epic, one-of-a-kind piece on the site, oftentimes not without a serious fight to become the highest bidder. Indeed, eBay is the biggest outlet mall meets auction house you'll ever visit: With millions of sellers competing for your dollar, everything from the highest of high fashion to the fastest of fast fashion is up for grabs. But for those who frequent the site, it's as simple as knowing which stores carry the best stuff. So in order to make your trip to the marketplace as easy as a Zara drive-by, we partnered with eBay and made a list of some of its best fashion stores, both high and low, for scoring stylish steals. (Pro tip: Once you identify a store you like, you can subscribe to its newsletter for deals and first looks at new loot. Cool, right?) Read on for your eBay fashion hit list, then bookmark all tabs, girl.

Best Names In Fashion Boutique
This store is huge, high-end, and well-organized. Here, you can find everything from sunglasses and silk scarves to dresses and unique heels. It has tons of options when it comes to luxury brands, including Christian Louboutin, Roberto Cavalli, and Bottega Veneta. The price points start at $50 and go up (sometimes way up) from there, which doesn’t exactly scream bargain, but for the quality, some of these pieces are striking steals. The store is definitely worth some casual screen shopping if your goal is to score re-sold name-brand fashion.

BHFO is an expansive store, boasting that it’s the “largest and most trusted” fashion retailer on eBay. It employs over a hundred people and has two million reviews to back up its status, so we’d agree that it's pretty legit. Unlike the aforementioned Best Names In Fashion Boutique, which lists several items as Buy It Now, BHFO has every item on auction with a fairly standard shipping rate of $5.99. Its auctions start at just $0.99, making it so that you can get a great deal with the right timing. And it carries every category of clothing, accessory, houseware, beauty product, and gift you could grab at a department store or fast-fashion retailer. While the all-auction style can be overwhelming, it’s a great place to look for on-trend pieces that might be priced way down at the start.

Simone Sato
If you’re seeking a more personal touch, then look no further than the trendy, boutique-like eBay store belonging to one Simone Sato. She’s a California girl from the affluent Pacific Palisades who boasts that her Hollywood connections (think: celebs, stylists, and well-to-do housewives) help stock her virtual shelves with high-fashion steals. Most of her items have a fresh-off-the-runway feel; she offers clothing, shoes, and accessories from cool-girl brands like Isabel Marant, Zimmerman, and A.L.C., as well as high-end luxury designers like Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney. Her prices aren’t out of reach, though, and there are mostly Buy It Now items with added discounts and free shipping. Her store is fun for browsing, complete with entertaining descriptions, too. The only downside is having to ask yourself, “What’s standing between me and that solid-gold statement belt?” The answer: not enough, honestly.

This store is just like real-life luxury consignment, only using eBay as its resale operation — meaning you can sell current-season designer clothes here. It’s great for those who have items to get rid of and even better for the shoppers who get to score these beautiful pieces. Auctions start at higher price points ($18-ish), but that makes it all the more likely that you’ll win and take home something from Gucci, Marni, or Azzedine Alaïa. This shop also has a ton of accessories to help you polish a look you already own. The most interesting feature? Celeb charity auctions. Right now, a famous actress’ wares are going for less than $50. Who knew?

The Fox Cave
It’s time for a fan favorite. Although The Fox Cave store is crazy small compared to the others listed here, it carries very specific throwback finds and indie brands that you won’t find in the bigger eBay shops. Here, you can grab '90s-era band tees at great Buy It Now rates, quirky decor, and unique styles from brands like Wildfox and Nasty Gal. It’s an easy place to check every once in a while for new arrivals, with a super specific inventory that won’t make you want to take a nap after scrolling through.

With about 500 items to peruse — featuring current styles from the trendy, budget-friendly brands you probably already shop on the reg — this store is the most addicting of them all. Its item descriptions are more like the ones you’d see in an online store. And while its widespread inventory (everything from dresses to swimsuits to leather jackets) is super on-trend, it also has a retro feel, meaning you can pull together a whole outfit at once. That's the beauty of this and all the eBay stores on the list, really: how easy they make it to find an entire, one-of-a-kind look and a bargain.
