If I like Cos, Toast, Allsaints, Whistles, and some Jigsaw. What other brands might I like?

Preferably towards the lower end of some of these price brackets, maybe Scandinavian brands, I saw some lovely clothes in Amsterdam recently and it's got me thinking.

I would like good quality that's not SUPER expensive ideally (not asking much eh!?).

I'm short and like fairly simple pieces, so not patterned or fussy. Is there anything out there? Also must ship to the uk.

Weekday is scandi-inspired and reasonable. It's available on ASOS or their own site.

H&M has a lot of asymmetric All Saints like pieces in their Divided line. The quality is good but won't last you years. Prices are v. low.

2nd Day and Hunkydory are both Scandinavian brands that I'd recommend which have online shops with an outlet section that should allow you to get things at lower prices. Also like Designer's Remix, Whyred, and Samsoe & Samso. Acne Studios make some of my favourite pieces and you should be able to snag some at a discount from yoox and the outnet.

All from the H&M group: Monki, although aimed at a younger audience has some surprising things sometimes but fabrics are hit and miss. Weekday for brilliant jeans and they have some nice clothes too at a price level just below Cos. &Other stories are also great.

Dutch brands to keep an eye out for are Anecdote and Amator.

It's also worth looking at Uterque which is Zara's answer to Cos (price level and audience wise) modern tailoring with an elegant edge, lots of leather but not preppy like Massimo Dutti.

*Samsoe & Samsoe

Also forgot to mention Bruuns Bazaar from DK.

Amazing, thank you for the recommendations!! They all look good. Will look properly tonight. Totally forgot about Acne too.

I just realised I forgot about Filippa K but then I do tend to think they're a bit overpriced for what they are and their position in the market isn't as unique as it used to be to warrant the prices. Still like the clothes though but tend to only buy if on sale.

Also, I never bought anything from them but I've been keeping an eye on them since seeing them mentioned on here, Finery London. I'm a bit iffy about the fabrics but it may just have been the things I was looking at.
