For InStyle's November issue, on newsstands now, we teamed up with Google to uncover your most-searched questions and problems. Then, we found the best sites, apps, and tools to answer 'em all.
Sure, we all love a deal, but being a savvy shopper isn't just about saving money—it's about finding well-priced quality pieces that will hold up over time.

We rounded up the direct-sale sites that cut out the middleman to deliver the chicest pieces right to your door—minus the markup.
