Fashion is a fickle thing. Just when you think you’ve mastered a look, styles change and you’re behind the times again. (We just spent the weekend donating all our skinny jeans.) It’s just hard to keep up. High-fashion magazines and websites don’t interest us much. And brand names we recognize are usually far out of our price range. If you’re looking for affordable fashion, check out Ssense.

Ssense (pronounced “essence”) is a fantastic retailer that specializes in couture brands and designer names. But the prices aren’t outrageous, and the styles are, for the most part, stuff we’d actually wear. From jeans to suits, t-shirts to sport coats, slides to sneakers, Ssense is a great source for affordable fashionable apparel that won’t bust your budget.

It’s also an excellent source for staying up on trends. Ssense is more than just a retailer. It’s a fashionable publication that informs, too. Think of it as a bit like Huckberry for the stylish set. The clothes are fashionable and trendy, but it’s a low-pressure approach that doesn’t yell at us.

Ssense can seem, at first glance, like a high-fashion outlet. But dig deeper. Bargains are plentiful and easy to find. But Ssense doesn’t scream at us about “DEALS!” or bombard us with ads and promotions. Simple, clean, and easy to navigate, poking around Ssense is informative and easy. It’s an approach we appreciate.

It’s also a great resource on how to make various looks work. The blog posts read like actual magazine articles, and they’re informative and not at all preachy. With tips on when and where to rock designer duds to insight on how to make certain looks work for you, Ssense is a great place to see what designers are actually selling—not the outlandish, expensive stuff you see on models on the runway.

It’s a great layout, and an easy way to see how certain pieces might look next to other items you already own.

Ssense has streetwise shoes and shirts but everything else a guy could want. And while you could plunk down hundreds of dollars (or more!) on some high-end designer duds, there’s no need to.
