Amazon is stepping up its fashion game, and I think I can speak for college students everywhere when I say I’m here for it. As a Prime member, two-day shipping has saved me on various occasions, whether it be a last-minute textbook order or an urgent refill of a skincare essential. Never in my wildest dreams did I think there would be a service that guarantees an outfit will arrive at your doorstep in two (sometimes one) days. Buying clothes through Amazon has its perks in addition to the free two-day shipping. Most pieces have thorough reviews with customer pictures, so you can get honest opinions about the piece. Seeing clothing on different body types also makes it easier to decide if the piece will look good on you. Amazon also has free returns, which makes ordering clothes online less painful; if it doesn’t fit, returning them won’t be a hassle.
A fellow Barnard student, Emma Vincent ‘19, got me hooked on ordering clothes from Amazon, but I don’t think enough students realize how great Amazon is for online. They are upping the quality and quantity of pieces, so chances are if you want it, they have it. Just to prove it to you, I put together a few outfits for different occasions for which you might be scrambling for an outfit.
You have a last-minute date
Paired with black jeans and black booties, The PattyBoutik Floral Lace Off Shoulder Top ($31) would complete the perfect NYC date outfit.
The Kathemoi Bell Sleeve Suede Top ($25) is perfect for a date in colder weather, with its unique bell sleeves and high neckline.
You have an oddly themed party this weekend
Amazon has a ton of cool graphic tops. One of my favorite is this “Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino” long sleeve top ($16). It also comes in a t-shirt and a bodysuit.
The tiny glasses trend might be dying, but Amazon still has a ton. They could be a nice touch to an outfit for a themed party
You need a dress ASAP
The lace details and high neckline make this Zalalus cocktail dress ($32) classy yet chic.
As spring approaches and the weather gets warmer, we can start to pull out some of our more summery dresses. This red long sleeve wrap dress ($18) is flirty and great for a spring night out.
