    Most offerings in Next etc are floral. Would anyone know where to go to find some thing a bit different - not floral, not polyester and not costing an arm and a leg. Something with a decent cut to it..

    Pamela Scott sometimes carries a brand called Opus. Some nice stuff there.




  • Mint Velvet
    Sugarhill
    Boden




  • Similar age and preferences here. I buy from COS and Arket. Nice fabrics. Be prepared to try on and return though as the cuts don’t always suit.




  • I wish Wallis and Next would get away from the florals and animal prints. Their dresses fit me well, but who wants multiple floral versions of the same dress.

    Phase 8 can be good as well.

    Their fabrics are ****e though. Next children’s clothes are much better quality.

    Another vote for COS and Arket. Uniqlo especially some of +J (Jill Sander), U (Lemaire) or JWA specials. Kitri do nice dresses but they like florals.




  • & Other Stories is related to COS but can be better fitting. COS like big and flowly but well made.




  • LaRedoute can be good sometimes however you have to check their materials. I like Other Stories too. Both brands can be heavy on prints.

    I love Uniqlo, got a huge order from their recent sale at the weekend. Every single thing is gorgeous and fits well. But I always shop in there when I'm in London so I know my sizes.




  • Seasalt are good quality and some nice bits in the collection.

  • Hush and Comptoir de Cotonniers (owned by Uniqlo!) are good options, have more of an urban/contemporary feel and offer more than just the usual polyester/viscose crap that you get with a lot of other retailers. I gravitate more towards French brands now and to a lesser extent some of the Scandi ones as I find the quality is a lot better than many of the UK outlets. So Sezane, C de C, The Kooples (lovely silk summer dresses but can be pricey) ,Cos, Arket, & Other Stories. Whistles are another option. Probably all a bit more expensive than Next but better quality.




  • Try Zalando?
