Seriously, consider yourselves warned.

Lately, everything's been about being online. You can't even begin to talk about fashion, specifically shopping, without mentioning e-comm (that's e-commerce for you clueless ones). By now, you most probably have retailers, apps, and sites you trust but with fashion, it pays to check multiple avenues for the latest drops and stocks.

From a classic menswear destination like Mr Porter to the uncurated vintage treasure that is eBay, here are the best online shopping apps that will hook you in and eat up all your time. (Seriously, consider yourselves warned.)
