We all know that & Other Stories sits at the higher end of the high street due to its slightly elevated prices, but in return, you get better quality fabrics and fits, as well as a more unique aesthetic. It's not as fast-paced in terms of production in comparison to other affordable stores, and you probably won't see hundreds of new items dropping every day, but this is more than welcome in our quest to shop more sustainably.
Instead, you'll be more likely to find some very well-designed classics—trench coats, blazers, and perfect tees—mixed in with trend-led pieces such as printed midi dresses, boilersuits and a smattering of the latest must-have print. In addition to all that (and the fact that they have a great beauty department), the shoe selection is strong, with one of the coolest trainer edits you'll find around. It's easy to see why & Other Stories has become a trusted source for me and my wardrobe.
2. MIDI DRESSES
My collection of & Other Stories midi dresses grows every season. The brand gets it right when it comes to print, colour, shape and the finishing details. Whether you want to wear them with trainers and a blazer or sandals and a cardigan, I guarantee that a Stories midi dress will work hard for you.
From cosy cardigans to oversized knits, when you need to update your knitwear, Stories is the place.
Always my first stop when I need (read: want) some new sneakers. I love the selection of Nikes—it's lethal!
Designer leather pieces can cost a fortune, so I often turn to & Other Stories for stylish leather items that are more affordable. Although still an investment, from the perfect go-to midi skirt to a jacket that will add instant cool to any outfit.
6. LEOPARD PRINT
You can always count on & Other Stories to deliver when it comes to great leopard-print pieces. From kaftan dresses to jackets, this season, there's every possible kind of animal print item available.
