Interested in unique fashion? Before you head to the mall, Lucky magazine shares great online resources to snag the best in cool, affordable style. From bohemian skirts to 1920s footwear, find out how you can easily buy vintage clothing and accessories:

Clothing

Billie Goat Vintage
The chic, slightly punky wares at this eBay shop center on finds from the '70s and '80s. Each item up for auction is styled on a model with amazing accessories — a grandpa cardigan will be playfully paired with a fedora; a turquoise sweater is matched with scarlet tights. Bids start at only $9.99, and new items are introduced every week.stores.ebay.com/Billie-Goat-Vintage.com

Lullie Vintage Clothing
Intricate patterns and subtle details are what make the carefully edited pieces from this Hollywood-based retailer so unique — and the site shows them all from numerous angles. As an added bonus, the dresses and skirts are all professionally hemmed, and anything you don't love can be returned.lullieclothing.com

Mama Stone Vintage
Bright colors and prints are the stock-in-trade at this California store. The items here focus on iconic looks from the late 1960s through the 1980s: a slick Charlie's Angels–worthy turquoise blue trench, a bohemian high-waisted floral skirt, or a flouncy, printed corset dress. Sign up for the store's newsletter to get a sneak peek at the upcoming arrivals.mamastonevintage.com

Nasty Gal Vintage
This easy-to-navigate site has wonderfully vivid fashion photography and is packed with a unique blend of on-trend vintage goods — from a cozy cable-knit sweater with batwing sleeves to a canary yellow swing coat — alongside a few well-chosen contemporary pieces. Its blog keeps visitors up-to-date on new arrivals and owner Sophia Amoruso's latest obsessions.shopnastygal.com

Rusty Zipper
Open since 1996 and based out of a small Oregon farm town, this huge resource is one of the Web's oldest vintage clothing stores. Despite its epic size — there are literally thousands of items here, mostly under $50 — searching is a breeze since you can filter by era (1920s through the 1990s), size, style, or price. Incredibly detailed measurements and large photos are also a plus.rustyzipper.com

Jewelry & accessories

Doyle & Doyle
The online home of a charming shop on Manhattan's Lower East Side boasts the same lovingly assembled jewelry that has made its bricks-and-mortar location an insider favorite. Browse page after page of glamorous old European engagement rings, or take a peek at its section of $500 and under gifts, stocked with romantic pins and drop earrings.doyledoyle.com

Hi + Lo Modern
One of the most common frustrations of shopping for antique accessories on the Web is the lack of clear photos. At Hi + Lo, it's visual overload: Every item — from a graphic 1964 World's Fair scarf to a Mexican enamel bird pin — can be clearly viewed at nearly full-page size, which makes it easy to shop with confidence.hiandlomodern.com

Re-Mix Vintage Shoes
Operating out of Los Angeles, Re-Mix is devoted to dead-stock vintage footwear from the 1920s to the 1970s. As word of its trove has spread, it has even started replicating its most popular styles (we especially like the perforated oxfords and Mary Jane sandals), thoughtfully keeping prices under $200.remixvintageshoes.com

Vintage Sunglasses Shop
Straight out of Berlin, this stellar '70s and '80s designer sunglasses resource conveniently lists its prices in dollars, ships worldwide via courier for only $19, and turns around orders in a few days. The brands it carries are ones that are quickly climbing into collectible territory — Ted Lapidus, Colani, Paloma Picasso, Carrera, Cazal — and every single pair arrives in pristine, never-worn condition.vintage-sunglasses-shop.com

The Way We Were
A staggering (and well-organized) selection is what really impresses about this site, where sleek signet rings from the '40s are offered up alongside quirky, pretty charms and ladylike watches. Filigree rings can run up to $2,500, but the majority of its wares are more gently priced.the-way-we-were.com

Big-name designers

Chelsea Girl Couture
This buzz-worthy store in New York's SoHo neighborhood focuses on hard-to-find pieces from heavy hitters like Yves Saint Laurent, Donna Karan, and Gucci. The site offers the best of the designers' signature looks, like a long, pleated Mary McFadden gown from the '70s or a shapely structured '80s dress by Norma Kamali.chelsea-girl.com

Posh Vintage
With vibrant multiple-view images of each garment and crisp, information-rich layouts — complete with detailed measurements — the website of this Miami-based boutique is devoted to sourcing sought-after lines like Pucci and Ossie Clark alongside high-caliber designer clothing (expect names like Biba, Jean Muir, Thea Porter, and Holly Harp).poshvintage.com

What Comes Around Goes Around
Along with a well-stocked supply of perfectly worn-in jeans and button-downs, you'll find a pitch-perfect section devoted to incredible designer finds. The selection isn't as comprehensive as some other sites, but each piece — from a graphic '80s YSL blouse to a silver Courreges coat — feels handpicked and one-of-a-kind.whatcomesaroundgoesaround.com
