The characteristics of a successful fashion website

Global trends in e-commerce web design are the same for luxury brands and smaller fashion businesses. Digital stores that are capable of drawing customers and making them stay loyal share a certain set of qualities:

  • An impressive visual presentation that tells an inspiring brand story - one that appeals to feelings and creates a deep emotional response.
  • Powerful and customer-oriented product display - one that understands what customers want to know about the products and gives them exactly that information.
  • A well-thought-out brand story in the About section and throughout the website - one that creates a distinct brand personality, explains the brand mission and goals, and also invites customers to identify with that personality.
  • Smart selling practices - not selling on the homepage, and no aggressive upselling.
  • Great website navigation and product sorting that allows customers to quickly find the right items, as well as select the right size and fitting.
  • Powerful community practices that invite loyalty and brand connection - these include but are not limited to email subscriptions and social media integration.
  • Attention to a user-generated response to the brand and separate products - social proof that includes testimonials (text and video), as well as reviews and ratings.
