Shopping online is hard enough when you know your size in a trusted brand (only to find those two pairs of jeans fit completely differently upon arrival) but bargain-hunting introduces a new level of complexity. The gap between expectation and reality is all too wide, which is why it’s critical to shop smartly so you know you’re getting a deal instead of a dud. Fellow shoppers are a goldmine for information, and nowhere will you find more reviews to scroll through than Amazon’s fashion department. The online mega-retailer is a haven for wallet-friendly style, and some pieces have racked up the tremendous social proof with thousands of fans declaring them a serious score.
Whether you’re looking for a white tee that isn’t see-through, squat-proof leggings, or a comfortable work dress that’s travel-friendly, Amazon shoppers have done the vetting for you by leaving tens of thousands of reviews in their wake. Since there are some things you just can’t put a price on, you'll also find the holy grails of comfortable underwear — because it doesn’t matter how soft your T-shirt is if you want to launch your bra into the sun. From cropped yoga pants and chunky cardigans to statement tops and sleek bodysuits on par with Zara’s latest drop, these are the best affordable basics and trending fashion favorites that actually live up to the hype.
