What does your wardrobe consist of?

My wardrobe is mostly Joules, followed by Fat Face, Jack Wills and Zara.

I just love Joules. I think its the country feel and the animal prints. I'll see something and think "oooh, that's so nice!" It will turn out to be Joules so I'll end up buying it even if I don't need it. I've even kitted DD out with a full Joules nursery set.

Which brands fill your wardrobe and what can't you get enough of?

Bugger all. I've just cleared out as I've been wearing maternity clobber for months. Looking forward to replenishing soon.

Whatever fits, as I'm 6ft and struggle a lot...

Next tall, Dorothy Perkins tall, top shop tall, very tall, long tall Sally and some white stuff tunics. Gave up shopping in most normal ranges as it is depressing.

Hmm thinking about it my wardrobe is mostly (in terms of brands) Toast, TopShop, French Connection, H&M, Zara plus a lot is vintage or repro vintage like Heyday trousers/dresses, Vivien of Holloway dresses, plus some random ebay items that I tweak (I sew - I am slight so need to often take in and take up).

I hardly ever Go Shopping as such in the high street anymore. For the last few years I have tried to only buy proper materials (cotton, silk, wool) and look after them. Still have too many ebay bargain coats!

I have a real mixture of cheap and cheerful and better quality bought cheaply on ebay or TK Maxx so:
H&M, M&S, Primark, Uniqlo, Massimo Dutti.
MaxMara, J Crew, Tahari, Brora.

I may be a teacher but there is no Next in my wardrobe. I think I dislike it so much as I live near a Next Outlet and the stuff there is horrible quality and looks a total mess.

Oasis for jeans
Zara for tops
Primark for tunic/dresses/basic T's
H&M for a bit of everything.

Today I am wearing H & M, Dorothy Perkins, uniqlo, jones and mulberry.
Tomorrow I will be wearing Catherine Malandrino, jaeger and LK Bennett (wedding)
Very schizophrenic but generally a mix of high and low end stuff...

I am 57 and I do like to shop in the shops people younger than me tend to shop. I don't buy large amounts of stuff there but some of my favourite items have come from Topshop or River Island, and if I wear all Jigsaw or Hobbs I tend to look a bit dull and safe. I have just bought a very gaudy necklace fromTop Shop that I'll wear with a Boden denim shirt and kilt I have had a couple of years but not worn yet.

bigkidsdidit Fri 30-Aug-13 12:21:14

Cos, whistles, uniqlo and topshop, mainly

blush Mostly Boden. I am their classic "40s-time-poor-mum-of-young-children-who-mostly-needs-a-casualish-wardrobe". Unfortunately I am not cash rich or married to an architect and wait for discount codes! I try not to get anything that screams "Boden!!!!!" and avoid the hotpotch, colour block and garish prints.

Also a bit of White Stuff and Fat Face, and recently, Sainsbury's trousers as their skinnies and chinos fir over my bulky calfs (I recently lost 3 stone and was gutted to discover that trouser legs are now so skinny that they still wouldn't go over my now slim legs). Next for jeans for same reason.

M&S Limited Collection
Fat Face
Local hospice shop - I call it the Kirkwood Boutique
Outdoor brands - Patagonia, Howies, sometimes Land's End
The very occasional "posh" items in sales - got a lovely coat in Austin Reed reduced from £400 to £150 in sales a couple of years ago.

Now that their is a Lego shop in our near-ish by shopping centre, I occasionaly get to pop into Gap next door. Their mail order is dreadful.

KatyPutTheCuttleOn Fri 30-Aug-13 13:13:58

Peacocks, a little M&Co, some M&S from the charity shop and other stuff without recognisable labels that I got in the charity shop. I rarely buy new clothes, I don't see the point when reusing is much better.

Kezztrel Fri 30-Aug-13 13:18:09

31. Topshop, Oasis , Whistles (mostly sale stuff), Jack Wills, Boden, NW3, Mango, Uniqlo.

Kezztrel Fri 30-Aug-13 13:18:42

And lots of eBay!

goodasitgets Fri 30-Aug-13 13:33:38

I do have the bedding blush there is some in the sale at the minute

jimjamspam Fri 30-Aug-13 13:45:32

Work stuff is mostly Boden, woolens from Woolovers & Uniqlo
Get quite a lot of odd stuff from TK Maxx, some stuff from Hobbs when I can afford it

Jeans usually Next as I'm a short arse. Lots of shoes & boots from Ash, Fly, stuff I find at TK Maxx.

Mine used to be full of Joules, Boden, White Stuff, Fat Face and Seasalt. But I lost lots of weight and had to replace my entire wardrobe all at once and couldn't afford their prices. So now it is full of Dorothy Perkins, Next, Debenhams, M&S, H&M and M&Co. High Street-tastic grin

Hmm everywhere!

Casual is mainly T by Alexander Wang, Goldsign, James Perse, American Vintage, Uniqlo, Gap, J Brand, Paige, Maje

Work is mostly Gerard Darel, LKB, Uniqlo (good cotton shirts), supplemented with random designer items.

Shoes have been mainly Boden (of all place) lately!

Umlauf Fri 30-Aug-13 14:51:14

Mostly Whistles, NW3, French Connection, massimo Dutti, vintage Burberry (gran used to spend time in their factory) Ted Baker & Jaeger Boutique. I have champagne taste on very little income so tend to go for these "mid range" brands in sales and on eBay.

I'm going to be a Mum in a month so my wardrobe is slowly evolving from lots of gorgeous dry clean only bits, to more practical things, and Joules and Boden are helping.

I was mortified buying my first Boden thing the other day as it was always my mums shop!

openerofjars Fri 30-Aug-13 14:51:57

Topshop, Monsoon and Ugg (from Oxfam)
Phase 8, Fat Face and M&Co (Age Concern)

I can totally recommend living in a student area for the charity shops alone: some or the things I bought this year were barely worn and quite recent styles.

Other than that, H&M fills the rest of the gaps, with the occasional trip to Next or Sainsburys.

justasecond Fri 30-Aug-13 15:07:53

Mine is mostly Zara, Massimo Dutti, Whistles, Cos, HM, with a few bits from All Saints and slightly higher end shops.
I used to buy a lot of crap but since last year have bought better quality but less and thought a bit more about my buys. As a result I don't "need" as much this A/W and am in the mood for just one or two blow the budget things like Rag and Bone Harper boots or a good quality (but probably non designer) bag.

Absy Fri 30-Aug-13 15:14:36

Topshop, some Reiss, Zara, Gap and Massimo Dutti. I had to put in a BAN on buying stuff from Gap for about a year, as all my wardrobe was Gap and purely because it was close to work. It didn't bode well.

KatyPutTheCuttleOn Fri 30-Aug-13 15:29:30
