When it comes to shopping on the UK high street compared with other countries I’d say we are pretty spoilt for choice. Whether you like to stay on trend with the latest looks or are looking for something a little quirky or different you’ll be sure to find something you love and within your budget. We are at a time in fashion where you can look great for less with some of our most loved brands creating stunning pieces at great prices.
Having lived in London for many years there were certain brands that I could bank on to find a gem for an occasion or to simply freshen up my wardrobe. Now with internet shopping being so conveniently at our finger-tips, finding what you need online saves the trip to multiple shops and trying on item after item. Personally, I prefer trying on what I buy and saving myself the annoyance of having an item delivered and finding the fit isn’t right (especially if I’m pressed for time). I also like feeling the material, looking at the finishing and judging the quality before making a purchase.
If like me you don’t mind shopping in stores then sample sales are a great way to find good quality clothing at a great price. I follow ldnfashion.com who always has the latest sample sales on their site. They often share sample sale dates and location for brands such as Reiss, Temperley and Mulberry but to name a few! So do check it out.
Speaking of Reiss, they also have an outlet website where you can find items for both men and women at a discounted cost, you can access the site here.
For special occasion wear Karen Millen has an outlet site where you can find wedding guest ready dresses too.
If you’re looking for boutique brands as well as some more established names such as Diane von Furstenburg then check out coggles.com they have a great selection of men and women’s designer fashion plus homeware all at reduced prices.
Lastly all over the UK you can find entire outlet shopping centres that have many of the well known brands covering sportswear, beauty, women’s fashion and more including London Designer Outlet Wembley, Freeport Braintree in Essex and Bicester Village in Oxford. There are many more around the UK and Europe, you can find the full list of them here.
I hope you find this helpful!
