The Influencers Who Always Find Expensive-Looking High-Street Pieces

Finding the best pieces on the high street is hard work, even for editors whose job it is to do so. With so many websites and new-in sections to cover, it takes dedication and, quite literally, an entire team to ensure we don't miss an incredible new drop or a soon-to-be best seller as we scroll. Another method we use to ensure we see every high-street piece going? Instagram. There's a handful of influencers who we religiously follow solely for their loyalty to the high street (something we have in common), and we thought it was high time we shared them with you.

Whether it's uncovering the sleekest minimalistic items from Arket, spotlighting expensive-looking wardrobe essentials from H&M or unearthing the next cult buy from & Other Stories, these influencers are an extension of our in-house affordable fashion–loving army. Scroll below to see the high-street fashion influencers who always unearth the best pieces, and then shop their impressive looks.
