The best Shopify clothing/fashion stores
Roden Gray is one of Shopify’s leading menswear shops.
Instead of designing and selling their own clothing, Roden Gray curates items from dozens of brands and fashion designers from around the world.
This allows them to offer a collection of apparel that’s truly unique and celebrates a diversity of cultures and design languages. The only similarity in the items they sell is in their high-quality nature.
In addition to their Shopify store, they also have a physical boutique store in downtown Vancouver.
Adored Vintage is a women’s clothing boutique selling vintage-inspired modern pieces for “modern romantics.”
Founder Rodellee Bas originally started selling vintage clothes to friends on Myspace (Facebook was still only for college students at that stage). From there, Rodellee started building Adored Vintage at night after finishing her job at a fashion production company in downtown LA.
In 2012 she had saved up enough money to quit her job and pursue Adored Vintage full time.
Today, Adored Vintage offers a stunning collection of women’s clothes and donates a portion of its revenue to local classrooms. Rodellee now also mentors other women in building their own businesses.
Founded in 2006, Fashion Nova has become the visited Shopify store in the world.
Not just the most visited Shopify fashion or clothing store, but the most visited Shopify store of any kind. Their clothing has also been featured in music videos by celebrities including Cardi B and Kylie Jenner.
It’s perhaps unsurprising then that Fashion Nova is also the most searched fashion brand on Google.
While you might not be anywhere near this level of fame with your clothing business, all this makes Fashion Nova one Shopify apparel store you cannot ignore.
Founded in 2014, Greats claims to be Brooklyn’s first sneaker brand.
The plain style of their sneakers is part of their mission to create versatile products with none of the “BS attitude of iconic retro sneakers” for both men and women.
In addition to making sneakers that work no matter what your style is, Greats also has a particular emphasis on sustainability and ethical labor practices.
In addition to their high-quality sneakers, Greats also has an incredibly well-designed Shopify site you should definitely check out.
If you’re looking for a well-designed Shopify clothing store with great product imagery, Negative is one store you’ll want to visit.
The entire store has a minimalist vibe that works well with their brand and mission to provide simple, comfortable underwear without any of the frills like lace, padding, and decorations usually associated with women’s underwear.
Taking this same approach with their website design allows their product images to shine and sell themselves.
Taylor Stitch is a menswear clothing brand focused on creating high-quality products that can stand up to any condition, whether that’s surfing, chopping wood, or just going to the office.
In addition to durability, Taylor Stitch also has an emphasis on using natural products to avoid the need for chemicals and pesticides which harm workers and pollute the environment.
And it’s not just great clothes that Taylor Stitch has produced, but a great online Shopify store as well.
Goodfair was founded by Topper Luciani to counter the consumption-based culture of fast fashion.
Unlike most clothing stores that only sell secondhand items, Goodfair also tends not to list individual items. Instead, they offer customers bundles of similar items, such as graphic tees.
This helps streamline their processes and saves them money which is then passed on to customers through lower prices.
As for their online store, Goodfair features a colorful, pastel theme that makes them stand out as a uniquely designed Shopify store.
If you’re looking for a Shopify clothing store with incredible imagery, 3sixteen is one store you need to visit.
Featuring both high-quality product images and in-situ photos of people wearing their products, just browsing 3sixteen’s site is like visiting a high-end boutique store.
This commitment to design applies to everything from their clothing to website and even their artist collaboration project.
Big Bud Press
Big Bud Press is a small but fast-growing Los Angeles-based label that produces high-quality clothes for everyone regardless of their body.
And it’s not just about ensuring their clothes are inclusive, but also that they’re produced in an ethical manner.
In terms of their Shopify store design, Big Bud Press makes high use of a bright and vibrant color scheme.
Manitobah Mukluks was founded in 1997 by Sean McCormick as a way of celebrating Canada’s Indigenous heritage and traditions through footwear.
Many of their products are also made in partnerships with Indigenous elders and artisans and are designed to stand up to Canada’s diverse climates.
