Switching Up Your Wardrobe? Try These Alternative Clothing Sites

Everyone needs a change now and then, whether it’s a simple haircut or a full closet rehaul. If you’re in the latter category, or if you’re simply looking for some new websites to find or discover your unique sense of style, then there are plenty of options out there for you!

The latest fashion trends we’ve been seeing on social media are the “e-boys” and “e-girls.” Rather than simply target that one specific style of clothing, here is a compiled list of various sites that offer extremely different—albeit all unconventional—products from one another.

3. Trash and Vaudeville

Some are into pastels, some are into earth tones, some focus heavily on primary colors… if you’re one of the lovely people that likes to keep their wardrobe almost entirely set to black, Trash and Vaudeville is the clear choice.

With tons of different styles (and a pop of color here and there!) these clothes do not disappoint.

Bonus fact: the Trash and Vaudeville site contains select products from other brands, such as:

Price: $$

4. Cease & Desist

This truly unique company casts a vast majority of POC models for their products, and ties in national and cultural problems with their ensembles. While the clothes don’t only look fresh in every possible way, the way the company is so focused on cultural inclusion can only bring in more respect and understanding between everyone involved.

Ah, another hotspot of bondage pants. What kind of world would we live in if these weren’t around? Would it even be a world worth living in?

Jokes aside, this totally punk 90s-inspired site features all things retro. Whether you’re looking for a raunchy plaid dress, the now-popular split leg pants, Joe Exotic pins, or some fierce bullet belts, you’re surely in for a treat.

7. Crash Bang Boom

Calling all die-hard punk, metal, and rock fans to the stage! 

Crash Bang Boom is notorious for their vast selection of band shirts featuring both well-known and underground artists. In the same site, users can browse many options of chokers, belts, wristbands, cuffs, leather jackets, and much more.

If you really needed any more bang for your buck, this Philly-originated brand has special effects hair dye you can buy for the same price as a meal at Chipotle. And before anyone asks, yes, the brand of the bleach is Manic Panic. Anyone else having a flashback right now?

8. Bomb Clothing Co.

Bomb Clothing uses visual artistry to bring life and emotion into their clothing while still maintaining a youthful aesthetic, and it’s very evident if you look at any one piece. They even have new collections coming out every 1-2 months, so mark your calendars!

Did we also mention their freaking cool homepage?

9. Billionaire Boys Club

The legendary actor Mark Wahlberg made Wahlbergs. Hip-hop star Pharrell Williams established, well… Billionaire Boys Club.

The “Happy” singer has always been unofficially known for his good sense of style, but we don’t think anyone expected him to pop off as much as he did with his brand. All of the clothes start of pretty simple, such as a long sleeve shirt, but have some interesting characteristic that makes them so unique.

(Yes, Billionaire Boys Club sells face masks, and yes, they shared a full page on their website dedicated to the Black Lives Matter movement!)

10. 82 Ave

Mesh… fishnets… neon…

82 Ave is a very niche site in that it caters mostly to those looking to get dressed up to go out clubbing or raving, and only has a handful of items that are socially acceptable for everyday use.

If going out isn’t your thing, no need to fret: they also have a small selection of loungewear and sundresses!

Price: $$

11. Black Market Toronto

Okay, we will admit it… this is not your typical online store. HOWEVER, that just makes it all the more unique. Each clothing and accessory item is one of a kind in the most literal sense of the word.

Join with us in poking around the site to see what clothing they have in our sizes. And always remember: when in doubt, go oversized!

They even have tons of products for LGBTQ+ Pride, Disney, weddings, and vintage looks! Honestly… what can’t this store do?

14. Kreepsville 666

There’s alternative. There’s grunge. There are e-boys and e-girls. Goths and punks. And everyone in between. Nonetheless… we can’t be quite sure what aesthetic this site is promoting. But it doesn’t matter, because we’re totally here for it!

Dubbed “The Original Scare Wear,” Kreepsville 666 lives up to its name. Most of the products feature full skeletons, spiderwebs, and (so it seems?) references to vampires and ghouls.

While this sort of style may not be everyone’s cup of tea, there are so many ways to rock a cherry skull print skirt that we can’t even complain. 

Price: $

Bonus tip: there are tons of monster face masks that would be cool to check out! You can try scaring an annoying neighbor with it.

  • Tapered pants are all the rage
  • Literally any kind of jogger
  • Vintage tees from your wildest dreams
  • Tie dye. Camoflague. Granite.
  • Eagles!!!!
