Father’s day is the best time to show appreciation for our dads and what better way to do that than to shop? Web design has revolutionized catalog shopping through the decades all thanks to incredible layouts, witty color schemes, and bold sliders.
Here are some of the best daddy-friendly sites whose web designs are sure to catch your eye:
For the young-and-hip Dads out there, ASOS is a go-to site for the latest trends. Their website design is colorful, youthful, and playful. Although it is a catalog of men’s apparel, going through the site has a high-fashion, the editorial magazine feels. The ASOS website even has an ‘inspiration’ tab, where they give fashion advice, tips, the latest fashion news, quizzes, and more.
