They're just as affordable too.
Don't get us wrong; we love H&M, Zara, Mango and Topshop as much as the next girl but in there lies the problem.
These brands have become known for cult items meaning anyone who is anyone will be wearing the latest 'it' item and while we're very much into hopping on the bandwagon, there's an argument to be had for originality.
There's a certain thrill in finding lesser-known brands that are not only affordable but stylish too. It's the perfect antidote to the cookie-cutter aesthetics that come from when everyone shops at the same three stores.
Although we're not ready to fully turn our backs on our beloved high street stores that have served us so well, we are ready to make our wardrobes unique again. Below, our list of high street fashion shops for when you're bored of the same old stores.
Neon Rose is a UK brand you may already be familiar with thanks to ASOS. There's a lot to love about Neon Rose: graphic tees, statement prints and summer dresses at purse-friendly prices - to name just a few. They also win the plus-size category as they go up to a size 28. Shop the brand, here.
Founded in a garage by Gemma Shiel in 2001, Lazy Oaf is a London-based streetwear label you can find stocked in Urban Outfitters or alternatively shop online. Inspired by misspent youth, teenage rebellion and apathy towards conforming, Lazy Oaf create distinctive pieces that play on a dark, warped, sense of humour. Shop the brand, here.
Zara's (more grown-up) sister brand you might not have heard of. Although currently only available online, their chic and stylish catwalk copies for less than €100 have us SOLD. Shop the brand, here.
Swedish born label Monki mixes Scandinavian cool with creative street style. With key pieces like loose knits, midi skirts and silk shirts, the brand is all about being brave, fresh and fun - all while empowering women to stand up for themselves and others. Shop the brand, here.
