Readers of a certain age are likely to remember the turn of the century when an infant ASOS flogged cut-price copies of styles worn by the household names of the time; think Britney, Christina, Kate Moss, Paris Hilton and er... Jordan.

There’s been a Swedish fashion invasion on British high streets lately, and Monki is part of the new influx that champions effortless Nordic cool.
Offering a winning mix of staple and statement pieces, many of the brand’s signature silhouettes are pleasingly oversized, which make them extremely flattering for a range of body shapes. Don’t miss the Online Exclusives for pieces you won’t find in-store.
There are currently just eight bricks-and-mortar stores in the UK, so the best way to shop Monki is online. Go, go, go!
Established in the autumn of 1947, H&M is one of the biggest high street fashion chains around. To say the Swedish company is fond of a collab is an understatement; it’s worked with countless design heavyweights such as Alexander Wang, Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney to launch limited edition collections that cause mini riots outside stores and sell out online in a matter of minutes.
While their formula of bringing high end to the high street has worked fantastically well, H&M is also the best door to knock on when you’re looking for essentials. The basic range of tees, dresses, leggings and hoodies are very well made and wardrobe staples we couldn’t live without.
Another Scandi brand under the H&M umbrella, think of Weekday as Monki’s cooler, studying-art-at-university older sibling. Although the website shows His and Hers sections, in truth many of the pieces are gender fluid and can be worn by anyone.
A special mention to the sale section, where there are incredible discounts to be had (think £5 dresses and Weekday’s famous denim for as little as £18), and the online workshop in which you can play provocative designer and create a zeitgeisty t-shirt of your very own.
Giving essentials a quietly Nordic cool update, COS is where the stylish minimalist shops. Silhouettes are clean cut and fancy free made with great-quality fabrics and slightly off-beat details; think asymmetric shirt cuffs and oversized colours.
COS focuses on distinctive shapes rather than loud patterns, one of the reasons it’s so perfect for officewear.
& Other Stories
Rounding off our list of Swedish fashion champs, & Other Stories has the tailoring of COS with the coolness of Weekday and just a sprinkling of Monki playfulness.
Collections are designed in three ateliers; Paris, Stockholm and LA, giving the label an attractive global appeal. Think float midi dresses, cute playsuits and boyish boxy jackets. Don’t miss the Online Exclusives section for pieces you’ll only find in their digital shop.
Beyond apparel, there’s also a lovely jewellery selection and sizeable beauty offering featuring lightly scented soaps, hand creams and fragrances in the kind of clean, plain packaging that you see all over Instagram in #beautyshelfies. No wonder it’s beloved by millennials the country over.
With a flagship store on Oxford Circus, the epicentre of high street fashion, Topshop has been part of our fashion story ever since we were kids, saving up enough pocket money to buy a nice top or jeans.
While Topshop is still the go-to for a nice top or jeans, its style evolution has come a long way since it was established way back in 1964 in Sheffield. The fashion-forward collections of clothes, shoes, accessories and beauty means that this is a brand that stays forever young. Find catwalk-led pieces in the Topshop Boutique section.
When it comes to smart office wear at a price you can afford before pay day, there’s no question – Dorothy is your gal. The brand stocks a wide variety of sizes from UK 4 right through to 28, so whatever your shape, there’s a new style for you.
If you’re getting hitched on a budget, check out their bridal collection, which has gowns from £85 and bridesmaids options from as little as £55.
Fun fashion aimed at the teens and twenties crowd, New Look’s mix of staples and trend-let pieces come at the sort of flinch-free prices that are very, very difficult to resist.
The store, which has been around since 1969, also offers Maternity, Petite, Tall and Curve ranges alongside men’s and girl’s collections.
With coveted fashion-forward prices and a slick website format, there’s little wonder why Spanish-owned Zara has such a cult following.
The store has extended its sizing and some pieces are now available at XXL, the equivalent of a UK 16 – 18, making it more inclusive to a whole new audience of shoppers.
As well as sections for different types of clothing (dresses, knitwear, trousers etc) the website also has pages designed to inspire new styling looks.
With design elements that look like they could have walked straight off a Versace catwalk, River Island offers a curated selection of clothing, accessories, shoes, kids and homewares that won’t fail to add a little clubby bouj to your wardrobe.
Animal print, chain and gold finishings feature heavily, but there’s also tailored workwear and form-fitting pencil skirts that are perfect for the 9 -5 too.
Another import from the Iberian Peninsula, Mango is a fashion fixture on the British fashion scene for its range of high-quality essentials as well as work-appropriate pieces; think sharp trench coats, no-nonsense boiler suits and statement print shift dresses.
The plus-size diffusion range, Violeta by Mango, offers cute and covetable outfits in sizes up to 26. No frump, no dowdiness – just things you’d actually want to wear.
Instantly recognisable for the treble clef logo, Stradivarius is owned by the same parent group as Zara, and the similarities between the two become apparent when you see their design styles.
Minimalist but oh-so chic, the brand is made for young women with a slightly grunge aesthetic; think lots of check print, flannel, biker jackets and denims of every description.
A perennial favourite with our American sisters, Forever 21 landed on British soil nearly a decade ago, and answered the prayers of budget-stretched students everywhere. It does a roaring trade in essentials – think vest, tees, shorts and slip dresses in a vast rainbow of shades – as well as Insta-friendly pieces that are perfect for nights out.
Have no doubt, this is a brand for the social media crowd, with inspiration coming from the ‘Gram and blogger posts. A special mention to its curve range, which offers the same cheap and cheerful clothing in sizes 20 and 3XL.
The hipster brand stocks a decent range of labels alongside its own in-house designs, all with a focus on street and festival style. The apparel is almost balanced by the homeware and gifting offering, which covers everything from tech to books and rugs.
If you need to find a perfect weeding guest dress or a tailored number for an important interview, Whistles is the one. Made for busy women whose heads aren’t turned by fleeting trends, the signature look is chic, considered and most importantly, wearable for a range of body shapes.
Effortless pieces designed for the modern urban woman, Warehouse offers everything from dresses to denim that are ideal for work or play.
Made with adventurous young women in mind, Bershka is Zara’s sister brand. It focuses on style-focused pieces and the trends of the moment. Think club and festival wear, but sobered down just enough to make them acceptable for every day wear; satin puff-shouldered body suits, rockstar-ready studded dresses and 80s aesthetic denim.
The home of simple basics, Arket sent the fashion set berserk when it opened the doors to its market-inspired store, which sells everything from women’s and menswear to kids, travel and items for the home. You’ll never have to elbow anyone out of the way to the rails again though, because the same stock is available to shop from the peace and quiet of your own home.
Owned by the John Lewis Partnership, which also owns upmarket grocer Waitrose, John Lewis has been a trusted brand since it was established in pre-war Britain. The department store has stayed a shopper favourite thanks to its ability to move with the times while also keeping its dedication to high quality goods high. The fashion department mixes top labels such as Aspinal of London, Burberry, Vero Moda and MaxMara with high street favourites such as Whistles, Ted Baker and Monsoon.
Marks & Spencer
So it turns out your mum was right; there’s good quality clothing, then there’s M&S quality clothing. The store, which also offers homewares, men’s clothing, kids and food, has long been the place to pick up a three-pack of cotton briefs at a really very reasonable price, but it’s the fashion collections that keep us coming back for more.
Often delving into its huge archives of designs, M&S’s unique ability to present a timeless aesthetic while still keeping up with current trends makes it one of our favourite places to shop for a seasonal refresh.

Wolf & Badger
From beauty to men’s, women’s and homewares, Wolf & Badger is a store front for niche, indie designers who wouldn’t be out of place on a millennial’s most-wanted Pinterest board. The price point is above average compared to other retailers on our High Street list, but you’ll be supporting smaller designers while bagging a piece you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
