If you’re a regular Dolls Kill shopper, we can practically guarantee that these 10 others stores are going to be up your alley, too. Keep reading, to find out!
We hope that you’ve at least heard of Dolls Kill, and if you’ve been shopping online for women’s clothing over the past 5 years, there’s a good chance that you have. It all but exploded onto the e-commerce fashion scene and hasn’t stopped growing since. In spite of its growth — both in size and popularity — this online retailer hasn’t lost a single lick of its sense of identity. That’s good news, for people who enjoy shopping at a place that offers a unique experience, and that’s precisely what Dolls Kill aims to do.
It’s grounded in youthful energy, much like some of the other retailers that we’re going to feature below.
10 Stores Like Dolls Kill
One of the ways that you can know Dolls Kill is a unique store, is how difficult it is to find a retailer doing the same thing. To put it plainly, there aren’t any, and the stores that we’re going to recommend below are by no means “copycats.” They might have a few similar garments here and there or share some of the same styles and themes that Dolls Kill clothing does, but they’re all different.
And that’s a good thing, too. Broaden those horizons, and shop at some new places, when you want to fill in those empty gaps in your wardrobe.
As we suggest different stores to you on this list, and you check out our provided links, think about how each of these selections could compliment your favorite pieces from Dolls Kill. And as always, if you have any questions about these retailers, hit us up in the comments!
Top among these comparable retailers is Nasty Gal — a store that features different styles than Dolls Kill but embraces the same edgy, rough reputation to great appeal and success. The Nasty Gal brand has had its ups and downs, even surviving a recent bankruptcy episode.
But it still persists, and it’s still one of the best places to shop for edgy, trendy clothing that can compliment many different women’s lifestyles. Click through to the link above, and compare that layout to what you see at Dolls Kill. Nasty Gal provides a similarly excellent shopping experience.
Shopping at Missguided feels a bit like walking through a music video. And not a cheap music video, but one of those high-production numbers, that wows you with its distinctly sharp visual appeal and sense of style. Maybe it suffices to say that we really like this store, and if you’re a Dolls Kill regular, you probably will too.
The prices are pretty good, too, and also similar to Dolls Kill, Missguided embraces a very “social media” oriented identity. It helps to make your shopping experience more like browsing a social media feed, and in the digital era that we live in, that feels pretty good.
The name probably says a lot. However, click through the link above, and we’re willing to be that you find more than you might have thought. Twenty-one might have been a superficial age for most of us, but Forever 21 is an excellent place to shop. The styles here aren’t explicitly “edgy” in the same way that several other stores on this list are, but they’re practically oozing pop-culture.
Because what’s trending in casual fashion takes such a prominent place at this particular retailer, we recommend it as a great compliment to Dolls Kill.
Yes, Urban Outfitters is a much larger brand than many of the others featured on this list. In spite of that, it manages to be one of the top recommendations we can muster for regular shoppers at Dolls Kill. It’s not that Urban Outfitters is particularly edgy (it’s not) but more that it embraces a certain casual approach to style. Shopping here is meant to be just as comfortable as the clothes that you buy, which is something that echoes in the Dolls Kill experience, too.
On top of that, Urban Outfitters offers more. We’re not just talking about clothes, here. If you’re after a compact, modern urban style of furnishings for your living space, there are plenty of them to be found here. And music, which is perhaps the perfect way to top off this pop-culture extravaganza.
There are quite a few things to like about American Apparel. First off, as the name might suggest, all of the clothing is designed and sewn in Los Angeles. Second, it’s a company that manages to keep its identity, while not being afraid to roll with the punches, adopting new styles as they become popular, while never backing down from the specific garments that have helped to make this brand well-known.
Currently, American Apparel is going through some necessary changes, and though the company is remaining operational throughout, they’ve urged their most ardent supporters (as well as those eager to get onboard) to wait until the flagship launch of a new online store, in the Summer of 2017. Exciting times, right?
Asos is another large store that, in spite of it being excessively mainstream, manages to fit nicely into our larger list of recommendations. You’ll find a huge variety of styles on sale here but neatly tucked among them are many similar fashion elements that you’ll find with Dolls Kill. Will it require a little bit more searching? Yes, it absolutely will. Does that searching pay off with great prices and minuscule (or absent) shipping costs? Ditto, and that’s exactly the reason that you should check out Asos if you’re looking for wardrobe items to compliment what you bought at Dolls Kill.
It’s become a rather large name in eCommerce, only aided by the company’s excellent shipping reputation. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you can still be eligible for Asos’ Premiere Shipping program.
To put it simply — All Saints is cool. It’s rough, yet elegant. Classic, yet wholly modern in design and presentation. This store sells women’s and men’s clothing, and though the entire lineup is stellar, we’d like to draw your attention to the jackets and outerwear, in particular. The products in these categories tend to convey a sense of “readiness,” when it comes to facing the world.
Though All Saints clothing is suitable for all kinds of different places and occasions, it’s a style that says “on the road,” and most who shop here look experienced and worldly, as a result.
Dolls Kill has got the “edgy” scene covered, but what about those who want to blend their “edge” with a little bit of vintage? That’s what Gypsy Warrior is all about. It’s urban, rough, cute, playful, and direct. If there’s one shop on this list that most closely compares to what Dolls Kill has for sale, we’re willing to bet that it’s Gypsy Warrior.
Click on the link to check out the product lineup. The prices are great, the sales are frequent, and the selections are varied enough to suit just about anyone’s wardrobe. And it manages to stand out as fairly unique, too, thanks to that constant sense of “vintage” that’s always visible, but never overwhelming.
Yeah, we know that ModCloth is less about edginess and trends, and more about embracing vintage style. But you know what? Vintage styles go excellently with the types of clothing that you’re going to find at places like Dolls Kill, and if you’re already shopping there, we’re willing to be that there are holes in your wardrobe that could use filling.
ModCloth is an extremely well-regarded retailer, too. It came from humble beginnings and similarly exploded onto the market. The prices are compelling, and the sizing is known to be pretty on-the-mark. If you need a great place to give your Dolls Kill products a little bit of accent, give ModCloth a shot.
For the same reasons that we mention ModCloth, we’re going to give a shout-out to Anthropologie, as well. This clothing retailer isn’t necessarily all about “vintage,” but they do embrace unique and individually styled fashion that compliments the edgy attire at Dolls Kill.
It was made with creative people in mind, so if that’s a style that you regularly embrace, expect to find quite a lot to like at Anthropologie. It’s a happy blend of casual and classy but never feels stuffy.
None of these 10 stores is exactly like Dolls Kill, but that’s because it’s such a unique clothing company. Those that we’ve recommended are some of the best, however. You’re bound to find a similarly excellent shopping experience that feels just as good.
