Not that we think actual, physical shopping is obsolete or anything, but the latest cool, new crop of online retailers have us feeling less and less inclined to brave the bustling insanity of the oncoming holiday madness. From high-end designers with brand-spankin' new websites, to exclusively online boutiques and consignment destinations, take a look at our latest crop of e-commerce stores—shopper's remorse, be damned!
From Alex Wang and Band of Outsiders, to Rachel Comey and A.P.C., this L.A.-based boutique has absolutely every statement-making piece that's on your shopping list. Also carrying menswear and home accessories, this is truly a one-stop shop.
Fall must-have: The electrifying lace-up boots by Rachel Comey in green cheetah.
Formerly the owner of Scout in Los Angeles, Greg Armas opened Assembly in 2008. The store carries an edited collection of hard-to-find menswear, womenswear, and accessories from around the world.
Fall must-have: The dark burgundy circular sunglasses by Dries Van Noten, please (and a matching Aesa pendent, too!).
Satisfy your late-night shopping cravings with a visit to Castor & Pollux. Stocked with awesome merch from Acne to United Bamboo, this eclectic e-commerce site has everything you need and more.
Fall must-have: The cardi of our dreams by Jackson, Johnston and Roe
The simple design and clean layout make this vintage web store easy to navigate and a pleasure to look at, too. Relic NY offers couture clothes by well-known designers like Lanvin, Armani, Marc Jacobs, and Chanel.
Fall must-have: The Marc by Marc Henley dress with front pockets is perfect for layering
Alex's is definitely one of the coolest looking websites around (are you surprised?). Designed by Sweden (Proenza Schouler is also a client) Alex Wang's new e-commerce store carries his shirts, bags, and completely obsess'able shoes.
Fall must-have: That hobo bag.
At last! This long-awaited e-commerce site has finally arrived...and just in time for us to be spending extra $ on everyone else! Classic and understated, just like designer Jessie Randall's chic and timeless clothes and footwear, the website makes shopping for everyday statement wares more accessible. Bonus: They also offer hand-written thank you cards!
Fall must-have: The silky nude dress with pale gold sequins is totally irresistible.
This exclusively online boutique offers designers we adore such as Lover, Karen Walker, and Willow, to name a few. With styling applications and a customizable closet tool, Les Nouvelles is the ultimate online shopping experience made ridiculously simple.
Fall must-have: Duskin's little black party dress is perfectly Parisian.
The Swedish brand's taken it upon themselves to spread some great, Scandinavian love around with their easy-to-navigate site that features all of the pieces from their men's and women's line. Stock up on sturdy shoes, practical separates, and rugged-looking pieces that also work for night.
Fall must-have: The tartan-patterned cocktail dress would be the most unexpectedly chic party dress for all your holiday shindigs.
