What Fashion Nova is
You’re probably well aware of the store Fashion Nova. It hit the internet streets by storm with tons of influencers and celebrities wearing the clothes to promote the brand. The store is known for selling on-trend styles at a pretty affordable price (more on that in a second).
Fashion Nova started as a physical store in California in 2006, according to this article. The owner found opportunity in the online space for affordable fashion and the rest is history. The store currently boasts 14.2 million followers and is still grooooowing.
What’s the price range?
Clothes on the Fashion Nova site are mostly under the $150 range.
Products over $100 are the more intricate pieces like the gowns for special occasions. Most pieces are in the $20 to $40ish range including the shoes.
The owner of Fashion Nova positioned the empire to cater to buyers who need affordable on-trend fashion, and the price point reflects this mission.
The shipping costs
Shipping costs range from FREE to $25. Currently, there’s FREE shipping when you make a purchase over $75 and choose 2 to 3 business day delivery in the U.S. The order has to be $75 after discounts and promotions are applied to qualify for free shipping.
Standard domestic 2 to 3 business day shipping is $6.99 if you spend less than $75. Overnight and one day shipping ranges from $15 to $25 depending on when you choose to receive the package.
Make sure to take into account that the store needs to process your order before it goes into transit. The time of day you submit the order for processing can impact the timeframe it takes for delivery. You can track your order status on the website.
Fashion Nova accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, PayPal, Amazon Pay, and Fashion Nova E-Gift Cards. You can also use Apple Pay and Google Pay.
Fashion Nova does have physical stores in California. If you buy from a physical store, you can take it back to the store where you purchased it to make an exchange within 30 days.
You have to bring everything with you for the return including paperwork, packaging, and tags attached. You can’t return worn items, washed items, bodysuits, bathing suits, or underwear. Final sale items can’t be returned either.
The rules for online returns are similar to in-store returns. The clothes must also not be worn. Beauty, cosmetics, and accessories can’t be returned. There may be a restocking fee for final sale items or items that are no longer trending. You have to take care of shipping costs; there are no prepaid labels. You need to send a return request form.
The refund from a return comes in a store e-gift card credit. You have to report any damaged to items received within 2 days.
Key points you need to know
- Shipping will cost up to $25 depending on the timeframe you choose
- Pretty fast shipping with delivery within 1 to 5 business days in the U.S. (It can take up to 12 business days to Canada and the U.K.)
- You have 30 days from the delivery date to make returns
- Returns will be refunded with a store credit
Shipping is pretty fast with Fashion Nova. The main thing to keep in mind is the return policy. Know that you need to move forward with returns or damage claims quickly to better your chances of getting a refund. The refund will come in a credit so you prepare to shop for other items instead of getting cash back.
