It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to conclude that online shopping’s gaining ground among teens. After all, with just a flick of mom’s or dad’s credit card or a quick trip to the bank, we can do away with the tedious strolls around malls just to find clothing pieces that everyone else is wearing anyway. And these oh-so-famous online shops can attest to how hot online shopping can be!
What’s to love: Vanessa Tan is a designer of the basics. Her online shop consists of those classy pleated skirts, blouses with pretty ruffles, and day-and-night blazers that can be worn with casual to preppy looks. They put to heart the fashion advice of American Vogue’s Anna Wintour: “Jeans and T-shirts can be equally fashionable as an Oscar de la Renta ball gown.”
