The Best WordPress themes for your Online Boutique
A few months ago I did a video on the starting an online boutique with 3 easy tools. Since then I got a lot of questions about choosing a theme for an online boutique especially on a market place site like Themeforest, so I went through a bunch of the themes they have there and picked out these top 10 themes like for starting your online boutique. Since woocomerce is one of the Best Ecommerce Platforms all of the themes I picked are designed to work with Woocommerce
Some of the things I looked for in choosing these theme were:
- responsive designs (you want to make sure your online store is ready for mobile shoppers)
- options and flexibility ( even though your are buying an out of the box them you want to make sure you can customize and make it unique)
- clean design (your products should be the main attraction in your online store)
- updates (e-commerce moves and changes fast you need to make sure the theme developer is keeping up with the pace)
- good comments and support (the best judge of theme in a market place is the number and type of comments you see and how quickly the author responds)
You can use these criteria to search for you own theme on themeforest or choose one of these
The overall sleek modern bold design is great for fashion and innovate live products. The theme is WooCommerce compatible and responsive this is always a must. I love the flexibility to change the home page (home page 3 is my favorite) and the other flexible options to make it unique. I recommend really crisp product photos on a white or black back ground to really take advantages of the theme’s modern lines.
The use of patterned background makes this eCommerce theme whimsical and fun great for showcasing smaller items and appealing to a colorful audience. The ability the change home page layouts and colors. I also love the use of the textured background, which I think gives it a softer and livelier looking depending on your background. I think this is really good for an online boutique that caters to a niche audience and wants to express a lot of their personality in their web site
This is a very classic theme using sanserif fonts and basic white layout. This gives the online store a very traditional feel. As with the example site this theme works well if you have product photos with scenery and background. This theme will work well with a vintage or feminine online clothing store, but it also would do well with a site selling books, linens, antiques or other traditional items.
This is another very versatile eCommerce theme with multiple sliders to showcase your products and a great front page display of products. This is a great them if you want to start an online clothing boutique. The great use of white space means you don’t have to use a lot of models to show your dresses, skirts, etc.
