Here at Elegant Themes, we might make WordPress themes and plugins, but that doesn’t mean we’re blind to eCommerce trends. Shopify is growing rapidly, with 75% revenue growth year over year. That growth is, obviously, fueled by more and more people turning to Shopify to manage their store. So to stay on top of the trends, we decided to round up some of the best Shopify themes out there.

Sorry, folks – these won’t work with your WordPress site. But if you’ve been itching to launch a store on Shopify, consider one of these Shopify themes for your next project. Plus, just because you’re managing your store with Shopify doesn’t mean you can’t still use WordPress for other parts of your site!

Top Shopify Themes for 2017

In collecting these 20 Shopify themes, I was looking for a couple of things:

  • High review ratings – if a theme fared poorly in reviews, it didn’t make the list.
  • Developer support – either evidenced through recent updates or through the text of customer reviews

Beyond those two criteria, I also tried to find themes with different uses and styles so that all types of stores can get value from this list.

And finally, you’ll find both free and premium Shopify themes at different price points.

Let’s dive in…

Better yet, District has maintained a 100% positive rating on over 247 reviews.
