Which Chinese stores are the best to buy clothing and accessories?

Made-in-China clothing and accessories are one of the most popular product lines in the Chinese foreign trade industry. For this reason, the number of international online fashion stores based in China is unbelievably big. For buyers, too many options sometimes could become a trouble as making a smart choice is not so easy. This post will introduce the best Chinese global shopping sites to buy various kinds of apparel of accessories by wholesale or retail.

Since apparel and accessories are a huge category, I think it could be more helpful if I list the stores by sub-categories of clothing and accessories. The following online trading companies are not necessarily professional fashion suppliers. Some may be comprehensive shops where you can buy varieties of products including fashion. Anyway, most of them focus on selling dresses, tops, bottoms, skirts, blouses and other types of clothes for men, women or kids. While most fashion shops also offer a limited range of fashion accessories such as shoes, scarves, jewelry and watches or handbags, some may not carry any accessories at all. Comparatively, it is the easiest to find clothing and accessories for women and kids from the online Chinese market while it is the toughest to find clothes or accessories for men or women of older ages.
