Where can I shop for classic clothes?

I'm 33, size 8-10 and like classic but fashionable clothing. I usually shop at the likes of oasis, Zara and warehouse but I'm getting a bit sick of their ranges. I feel too old for river island and topshop. I need some inspiration please, any ideas? I can't afford expensive clothes! Thanks

How about Uniqlo:


M&South Limited label. Looks better in store than on their site:

H&M has some good stuff:

Boden's not too bad pricewise:

Have a look on Pinterest.

Good luck.

Charity shops in posh areas?

Thanks so much for your fast responses! I will start mouching through the sites

Definitely charity shops if you are on a budget. I've bought Joseph, Massimo Dutti, Jaeger, Whistles and French Connection in charity shops but couldn't afford them new.

Uniqlo all the way!

Their classic basics are brilliant. I'm 35 and have outgrown Topshop, and Uniqlo is now my go to retailer. Terrific range of trousers - I'm particularly fond of their stretchy legging trousers, which are like a much much better and non naff jegging. Friends have said they never realised they weren't 'proper' trousers - I've got them in all different colours, and live in them for work. Also work staples are their rayon blouses - lovely drapey shirts in lots of different colours that wash like a dream and don't need ironing. Plus all their Oxford cotton shirts. Love their knitwear and basics too - live in heat tech and merino jumpers. Their cashmere is superb also.

They do some fabulous collaborations which are v stylish but on a budget. At the moment they have a collection with Ines de la Fresange (probably ballsed up the spelling) and their Jil Sander one was amazing
