It’s almost time to make the transition from winter to spring clothing. Welcome back all the three-quarter sleeves, shorter tops and those shorts and light weight dresses. As you begin to consult your wardrobe in the upcoming weeks, you may be limited in going out to shop, but do not fret because online shopping has you covered! Whether you’re currently working, or your job is on hold, the following list of online shops are cheap and will have heads turning your way this spring and summer.


Crop tops, graphic tees, blouses… you name it, Romwe has it. The highest cost for a short-sleeve shirt is $20 and some are as cheap as $2.75. All spring and summer shirts come in a variety of colors and have unique patterns that tailor to many personalities. One style the company has a lot of is open backed shirts that have a corset look or V-neck. This online store carries sizes XS to 3XL depending on the specific product. 

When shoppers add themselves to the store’s email list, they receive an initial 10 percent discount. Romwe also has swimwear available and lists this year’s trends which include animal prints, v-wires, thongs, stripes and polka dots. Most are under $6 and go as high as $28. The sidebar on the left-hand side of the website allows shoppers to set a price range so they can see affordable products.

Romwe also caters to men’s clothing. Similar in cost to the women’s department, t-shirts are in the $1 to $14 range. The store’s swimwear can also take you in many directions. Whether you prefer black swim shorts with pink flamingos on them or comic book characters, Romwe is the place to start your search.

Stay updated with the trends by shopping on Shein. This website is easy to manage and helps you locate what you want in an instant. If you’re unsure of what you’re shopping for, but you know you want something new, Shein offers a section under the tab ‘Spring 2020,’ which gives suggestions of summer styles for festivals, vacations, weddings and workwear. Under the ‘New In’ category, the company lists new daily items. Shein’s dresses are all under $15 and vary in flowered, striped or solid colored patterns. Some are more blousy than others which hug tight to the hips but either style will gain you attention.
Shein also has a men’s section for swimwear, Spring 2020 styles, shoes and accessories. Sizes range from XS to 2XL. Free shipping applies with orders over $9.90 and customers get a 10 percent discount with their first purchase as long as they subscribe to Shein’s email list. More importantly, if the item you ordered doesn’t fit or isn’t what you expected, the shipping return is free.
A little more expensive but a lot fancier looking, Jules Fashions offers clothing that is suited for business settings, cocktail parties or classier events. Depending on what you’re buying, you may be spending between $5 and $40. This online store sells dresses, tops, shirts, denim, shorts and skirts. Out of all the products available, the tops stand out the most. The one-sleeve, off the shoulder and halter top options look very elegant as do the zippered tops and collared shirts. There is free domestic shipping and currently there is a clearance sale that offers 25% off all products.
