Need a Dress in a Hurry? No Problem! These Clothing Shops Have Got You Covered…

We’ve all been there. After a busy week, you finally settle down to glance at your diary (glass of red in hand optional) and staring back at you is your besties Saturday night drinks you promised to attend. You look over to your wardrobe, nothing feels new or exciting. Your staple dress has been worn one too many times, and you don’t fancy trying your hand with that jumpsuit after too many cocktails again. The mad panic of trying to find a new outfit for an event is never a good feeling, not only is trying to find a suitable look always a challenge when you’re in a rush, the risk of delivery and late parcels just adds to the pressure. 

Luckily, many of our favourite stores now offer fast and efficient next day delivery, which means you can worry less and shop at ease. The experts at Next Day Delivery have handily rounded up all of the best places to buy women’s clothes in a hurry.

Here are the YCB’s favourite picks…happy shopping ladies!


ASOS have always been ahead of the online retail game, their Premier membership is an essential in life along with coffee and red lipstick. You can always count on this fashion giant to deliver, quite literally. Head to ASOS for all of your fashion needs, whether you’re in desperate need of fresh new loungewear, or something glam and glitzy for your next night out. You can also try secondhand clothes if you’re in a tight budget, find out more on Good Sammy.


If your current footwear isn’t cutting it, and you have a hot date looming, EGO shoes have got you covered. Enjoy fancy footwear at great prices, EGO is always on top of the trends offering killer designer-inspired shoes at a fraction of the price. 

John Lewis

When looking for a new LBD, don’t overlook John Lewis. Although you may think of them as the go-to destination for household appliances, their fashion department is actually quite fabulous. Stocking favourite brands from Whistles to Phase Eight, you can find plenty of great going-out pieces. Their in-house brands, Kin and Modern Rarity, are also worth checking out.


Have cash to splash? We love Coggles here at YCB, it’s where you’ll find designers such as Ganni (one of our favourites!), Kenzo, Self Portrait and Bella Freud. A must-visit destination for picking up something special for an occasion. Head on over to their ‘new in’ section, we promise you won’t be disappointed.


Perhaps you’ve already bought the dress, picked up the perfect shoes and…oh wait, that dress definitely needs a strapless bra! M&S is the mecca for women’s lingerie and we won’t hear any different. Head here for your last-minute bra, seamless knickers and bodysuits. Panic over!

River Island 

It’s almost impossible to enter a River Island store and not find something you love! From casual looks to incredible denim and glamorous cocktail dresses, River Island is always bound to serve you well. Here at YCB, we find that their sizing is always on-point and the footwear department is well-worth a visit.


An old favourite is the ever-faithful Monsoon. For something that’s a little different to the usual, this shop is one of our all-time favourites. Expect to find bohemian-inspired designs with plenty of pattern, colour and embellishment. Perfect for your next soiree…

Little Mistress

If you’re looking for a dress to impress and turn heads, look no further. Little Mistress is, quite frankly, dress heaven. You’ll find all styles of dress here including midi, maxi, midaxi (we didn’t know this was a thing), wrap, pencil, sequin, cocktail…the list goes on. Their ‘Wedding’ collection features a wonderful range of bridesmaid and wedding guest outfits. 


Good old Toppers has served us well for many, many years. More than we care to admit. It goes without saying this is always a website high up on our hitlist when we’re looking for a new outfit. We’re always bound to find a dress we’ll love for a long time in this trusty shop. 

French Connection

We’re having a serious love affair with French Connection at the moment. Their new season pieces are to die for. Think soft tailoring, autumnal patterns, and neutral tones. For long-lasting, quality items that will serve you as a wardrobe staple, French Connection is the place to go. Their ‘Etta’ suit is very high on our wishlist, it’s a must-have!
