These days, returns are easier to make than ever. But they still require extra work and more waiting, which is not music to anyone's ears. But they're also pretty avoidable. I order around 90% of what I buy online (seriously) and maybe return one thing a month, if that.
So how do I do it? There's no big secret. I've just figured out how to shop smartly online by choosing things that are clearly versatile, true to size, and from brands I know and love. (Although, I'm always game to try new brands—with a little research first.) At Shopbop, shipping is fast, and returns are free, but if you don't want to deal with it, I selected over two dozen items that are such good buys that you won't need or want to return them. In fact, you'll probably want to wear them over and over (just like these Nordstrom buys I carefully selected in the fall).
With that, scroll to fill your Shopbop cart with some of these highly covetable finds.
