British online retailer ASOS launches its hotly-anticipated USA site today—with free shipping both ways on all US orders! If you're not already familiar with ASOS, we give it a two-thumbs-up-check-it-out-ASAP. The e-tailer stocks its own labels and a bazillion others—including hard-to-find Stateside labels like Zandra Rhodes, Richard Nicoll, Ann-Sofie Back, and English High Street brands including Warehouse, Oasis, Paul's Boutique, and Whistles. We've bought dresses from ASOS for $17 and ogled $1,000 skirts on the site—there's really something for every price range.
Our favorite function on ASOS.com is definitely its search filter, which appears in the left hand side toolbar after you select a category. We like being able to narrow down a massive selection of dresses, for example, by size, label, color, and price—and, because of ASOS' massive selection, still wind up with hundreds of choices.
