Tippytapp’s Favourite TaoBao Shops
Ahh TaoBao…everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure. Shopping on the Chinese e-commerce site can get pretty overwhelming though, so we got fashion blogger (and resident TaoBao shopaholic) Jessica Tham to share some of her favourite TaoBao stores. Here’s where to get stylish clothes, Pinterest-worthy jewellery, quirky home decor items and more.
If you’re looking to hop onto this season’s bohemian-style bandwagon, then this is the store for you. Besides airy maxi dresses in summer hues, you’ll also be able to find off-shoulder blouses and comfy shirt dresses here.
DIBO has a wide selection of clothes, but not too much that it’s overwhelming. The clothes are a mix of casual and street style, so you’ll be able to find an assortment of denim dresses, ruffled blouses and geometric prints here.
If you’re more of the feminine sort, you might appreciate Forevercan (which may or may not be a play on Forever21’s name lolol). The clothes here are flirty and feminine, with pieces such as summer rompers, lace dresses and even tutu skirts to choose from.
Need to spruce up your work wardrobe? StudioFun is a great place to find classy separates in neutral colours, as well as casual but on-trend pieces.
Overly-Photoshopped model aside (and what’s up with that weird fringe?!), TAMMY TANGS is your go-to place for classy and feminine pieces in the prettiest hues. Besides off-shoulder party dresses and lace co-ordinates, you’ll also be able to find tailored shorts and maxi dresses here.

Contrary to what its name may suggest, HAVE RICE is not a restaurant or homeware store. It does, however, have a decent selection of on-trend clothes. This is the place to find neutral basics with a twist, street chic separates (that might give COS fans a run for their money) and a handful of casual pieces.

Too many clothes to warrant yet another TaoBao shopping spree? Have no fear, there’s always something to buy on TaoBao. In this case, perhaps you’d like a pretty new phone case?
