We’ve found some treasure troves full of one-of-a-kind dresses that won’t break the bank.

Let’s be real: Vintage shopping is basically a treasure hunt, and if you’re looking on a map for the best online vintage shops, look no further. We know that vintage shopping is no easy task, but finding that perfect vintage piece is a total wardrobe victory. When everyone is wearing the same fast-fashion dresses from the department store, why not invest in a high-quality vintage piece that sets you apart?

A note on fit and measurements: Keep in mind that vintage sizes typically run small, so it’s important to pay attention to the measurements listed for each item, and make sure you measure yourself before shopping.

If you’re on the search for a universally flattering, versatile fit-and-flare dress, then look no further than Ada’s Attic Vintage. Owner Rachael Sadler is on a mission to make fashion fun again: “Out with the pout!” she says. Well, we were definitely smiling when we found Sadler’s affordable retro dresses. On top of providing lovely vintage pieces, Sadler dry cleans each piece before sending it out and packages everything in darling floral paper. We’re swooning.

If simple, Southern belle–worthy dresses are your cup of tea, we’ve found just the shop for you. Sonja’s sweet Etsy shop is all about vintage clothing that is “wearable, timeless, and flattering.” With Peter Pan collars, striped pinafores, and full flared skirts, Capsule Closet has dresses that were made for springtime strolls and garden parties.

So you love vintage, but you’re a little more of a 1970s hippie at heart? Well, we found just the shop to suit your boho tastes. Jules Atelier, owner and curator of Kamomeya, specifically finds Japanese vintage that is casual yet feminine. She describes Japanese vintage as being “well made, with resistant, high-quality fabrics that show little signs of aging.” I think we can speak for all women and say that when we find a favorite dress, we want it to last forever—so sign us up!
