We all know that J.Crew is great for preppy classics, Zappos has troves of shoes, and Piperlime is the go-to site for on trend shoes, accessories, and clothes. But all three sites have some unexpected products that make one stop online shopping even easier. Check out the hidden treasures they have to offer–and pay shipping only once.
1. Some of J.Crew’s new designer collaborations are big news, like their recent team up with jewelry line Fenton/Fallon, but others go under the radar like their collaborations with Essie nail polish, Aigle boots, and Tretorn:
Essie made four nail polishes sold exclusively on J.Crew.com including this Girls’ essie® nail polish in Mint Candy Apple ($8) that is a perfect color for spring. French boot company Aigle (the French word for eagle) is known for their well constructed boots that stand the test of time like these Aigle® short-shaft rubber boots ($99) that are the perfect height for the warmer seasons.
Swedish company Tretorn is also known for their rubber boots, but these Tretorn metallic T56 sneakers ($78) are an updated take on a classic sneaker with a metallic finish that is very J. Crew.
2.When Piperlime started, it sold only shoes but the site (which also has a blog we love) now sells apparel–including Rachel Zoe’s jeans. We were excited to see their new swimsuits from our favorite designers like Ella Moss, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Splendid.
This Splendid Simply Solid Swimsuit ($97) is a basic swimsuit that will work for most body shapes, while this Marc by Marc Jacobs Bandeau Maillot Swimsuit ($173) has a hidden underwire bra and a removable belt that makes the waist look smaller.
3. If you already know a beauty product is great (check out our beauty roadtests), there’s no need to step foot into a crowded department store. According to WWD, apparel and accessories site Zappos plans on expanding their makeup offerings within the next five years, but now they have some great products from Stila, Lola Cosmetics, Purminerals makeup, and more.
This Stila One Step Makeup ($44) is a primer, foundation, concealer, and powder all in one that will make getting ready in the morning easier. For foundation that looks good and is good for your skin, check out this Purminerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup SPF 15 ($25) that is a natural mineral concealer, powder, and has SPF 15 protection.
