Do you ever wonder how people find such great fashion items on Amazon? Do you wonder if Amazon Prime is worth the rage? Well today I want to share with you my Amazon fashion shopping hacks to help you find the perfect pieces at the absolute best prices.
If you follow me over on Instagram you know that Amazon IS. MY. JAM. I’ve been a member for years and just recently started to really love the shopping there for clothes.
I often get asked how I find such great pieces on Amazon so today I’m going to share with you my top 5 Amazon fashion shopping hacks to help you do the same.
Amazon Fashion Shopping Hacks
Here are my top 5 EASY shopping hacks for Amazon fashion.
1.) Always purchase items that are Amazon Prime. There are a few reasons why – First of all, when you purchase an Amazon Prime item you’ll likely receive your item in 2 days. Second, you’ll also receive FREE RETURN SHIPPING, which in my opinion, is always a most. Although I’ve had great luck with Amazon fashion items, you just never know. I refuse to pay shipping or return shipping so this is one of the number 1 reasons I love shopping Amazon Prime!

2.) Read reviews. Amazon is known for their reviews. Not only can customers leave reviews, but they can easily upload an image as well. I am a HUGE fan of reviews. I read them, leave them and rely on them. When it comes to shopping fashion items on Amazon this is crucial because items don’t always look exactly as pictured in the stock photo. There have been countless items I’ve wanted to order but after reading poor reviews decided against it. Same goes for vice versa, I’ve seen some items I’ve been hesitant about but after reading great reviews decided to give it a chance. You’ll see that on Amazon there are sometimes hundreds or even THOUSANDS of reviews. Be sure to search through the ones with images first.
3.) Shop Major Retailers On Prime. Have you ever shopped at sites like Zappos or ShopBop and saw the “checkout with Amazon” option? Well, Amazon houses several retailers like these right within their own site. If you go to “clothing, shoes jewelry & watches” then click on “Amazon Fashion” then “Women” it will take you to the Main Amazon Fashion Screen. From here, hover over “Women” and click “contemporary & designer” under “featured shops”. On this page, look at the column on the left hand side and scroll down until you see the “sellers” section. Here you can check off the sites you want to shop (6pm.com, Zappos, ShopBop). It is the best way to narrow it down!
BTW – I find that sooo many people haven’t heard of 6pm.com. I mentioned them in this post a few years ago and still find that their prices are often FAR cheaper than many other shoe retailers. I highly recommend looking here if you have something specific in mind. Something I might do is try on a shoe in store and figure out the size I need, then order it online at the cheapest retailer!

4.) Shop By Category. Amazon is home to MILLIONS of products. It’s best at the very least to narrow down your search to strictly fashion items. When you’re on the Amazon homepage simple click “Clothes, shoes, jewelry & watches” then click “Amazon Fashion”. This will at least narrow it down to these categories. You can then choose the exact category you want (shoes, dresses, etc.). From here, be sure to check out Amazon Fashion Brands. Did you know that Amazon has brands that are exclusive to Amazon only? They have high quality products that are still budget friendly. Once you get to your desired category (ie: dresses, shoes, etc.) just click on “Our Brands” on the left hand side under “Amazon Fashion”.
5.) Personal Shopper Program. Did you know that Amazon has a personal shopper program?! While I personally love to shop I know that’s not the case for everyone. With Amazon’s Personal Shopper Program you fill out information regarding your personal style. From there, selections are curated for you with your taste AND budget in mind. Before your stylist ships your items you get to preview them and choose up to 8 of your favorites to try on at home FOR FREE. Once you receive your items you have 7 days to try them on. You only pay for what you keep and are given a prepaid label and box so you can send back what you don’t want – returns are FREE. I honestly don’t think it gets much more convenient then this!!

I also do a giveaway every month in which I give away one popular item from my monthly haul. If you want to participate in my monthly giveaways you can sign up for the newsletter HERE. Additionally, you can shop my Amazon Storefront here.
So now that we have Amazon Fashion Shopping Hacks covered I want to get into a little more detail about Amazon Prime. I have it, love it and swear by it!
What’s So Great About Amazon Prime?
1.) The prices are almost always better than in a large retail store. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found something in-store for myself or the kids and then looked it up and Amazon and sure enough, the price was less.
2.) Being able to compare things so quickly and easily is a dream! Not only can you read the hundreds or sometimes thousands of reviews, but you can also see images that previous customers have left.
3.) Amazon Prime members get purchases hella fast. Most items arrive within 2 days but there are also over 10 million items that are available for next day delivery! Additionally, over 3 million items offer SAME DAY delivery! I’ve personally received several items within 24 hours. If that’s not quick enough for you than I’m not sure online shopping is up your alley.
Other Amazing Features Of Amazon Prime
1.) Amazon Prime members receive exclusive deals such as savings and discounts on hundreds of items PLUS early access to lightening deals.
Just a few months ago I got a Firestick on a lightening deal for $14 (original price: $40). It was a huge saving on something we had planned to purchase anyway. Today I noticed there were new movie releases available for only $2.99.
2.) Amazon also has daily deals and deals of the day that you can find broken down by category so it’s easy to shop. I tend to stick with women’s clothing and fashion but there is also great stuff in other categories like home, kids pets etc.
3.) Probably my favorite feature of Amazon Prime is the Subscribe & Save Program. Not only can you receive your most used items automatically every month, but you get discounts on them as well. When you add 5 items to your subscribe and save for the month you get an automatic 15% off. Additionally, when you purchase baby items such as diapers, wipes, baby food etc. you receive 20% off. I’ve been using this for YEARS and cringe at the prices I see in stores! It’s incredibly simple to remove/add an item to your subscribe and/or to change quantities. You just have to do so before they are being prepared to ship. It is seriously so convenient. Plus, when you add an item to your subscribe and save you can choose the frequency in which it gets delivered. You don’t have to go in every month and “skip” the month like you do with most subscription programs. So for example, I have coffee pods as a subscribed item but I have it set to be delivered every 3 months since there is enough in each box to last me that long.
Here are just a few of the items I receive monthly via the subscribe and save program:
These are just a few items I have on subscribe and save but the amount of products available is unreal!
Amazon Video is also another huge benefit of being a Prime member. There are thousands of free tv shows and movies available, plus you can purchase movies/shows and then live stream them from your computer, ipad, tv, phone, etc. I much prefer to buy movies for the kids this way because no matter where we are we have access to all their favorites. Annnndddd we don’t have to worry about them destroying yet another DVD.
With Prime Video you can also subscribe to premium channels individually like HBO, Showtime and Cinemax. You only pay for the channels you want and it relieves the need for cable!
Prime Music is another similar option. With Prime music you can listen to over 2 million free songs. If you want to access to over 50 million songs that you can listen to offline and hands free (for example: Alexa) you can do so with a small monthly membership fee.
With Amazon’s “Amazon Day” (exclusive to prime members) feature you’ll be able to find a ton of great products at reduced prices unavailable to anyone else!
You can be one of the first to get new releases on items such as video games, movies, books etc with Amazon’s Free Release-Date Delivery feature.
Amazon Prime members can earn shopping rewards when making purchases simply by checking “no rush shipping” at checkout. Your purchase will ship within 6 days and when it does you’ll receive an instant discount! This is great for items you need to order but don’t necessarily need immediately.
Amazon Prime members also receive a 10% discount on select products at Whole Foods Markets.
There are so many amazing features and benefits to being an Amazon Prime member. I could go on and on but I think you get the point. The features I’ve mentioned through this post are just a small fraction of what Amazon Prime offers. I don’t even use half of what’s available to me and I still absolutely love the service. If you want to try it but are hesitant about how much use you’ll get out of it you can try a free 30-day trial here!
*Certain features of Amazon Prime are only available in certain location. Check your location to see if it qualifies.
