I think you are! My local branch is full of people your age but you have to like the style. I’m over 20 years older than you and I’m definitely in the minority in there but who cares?
I rarely shop at Zara these days, but you could. I prefer Massimo Dutti which is a more upmarket Zara. I like Cos. I also like Arket and & Other Stories. Mango is worth a look and, depending on your lifestyle, there’s always Saltwater and Boden but I think their designs are very recognisable so not where I go.
I cannot live without Jaeger costs. I have just bought a parka with a fur collar from Weekend by Max Mara. M and S jeans work well for me. I prefer lots of pairs to one expensive pair.
I'm struggling too. I'm 37 and athletic/masculine figure (ie. no chest), 5'5". The grown up shops like Mint Velvet, Boden etc seem cut for more busty and wide-hipped types than me. I used to shop almost exclusively in Next and Dorothy Perkins but they've both gone crap. I like Oasis but I begrudge their prices for so much polyester.
I'm mid-thirties and don't believe in shopping by brand. I generally go to AllSaints for leather but for tops and jeans I have ASOS, Uniqlo, Gap, Weekday, Noisy May, Topshop, supermarket brands and Saltwater. Shoes are from all over. I have coats from Diesel, Ralph Lauren and Burberry. If you like MV, I say wear it.
Hush, Oasis, warehouse, Asos - I’m in same category as you and that thread also made me question if I’m old before my time shopping there! Although I think the last few things I’ve bought have been ‘young’
I'm older by a decade but I like Jigsaw, Mint Velvet, Hobbs, Boden, etc. I think I probably dress a bit younger than my age. I buy stuff from Zara, Jack Wills, Topshop... Mango doesn't cut it - the quality isn't good enough. My mum likes Joules and Boden. I think the quality is great but they are a bit recognisable. Gap is ok for t-shirts. Uniqlo is good for basics. Jeans tend to be branded. Levi's, Diesel, Gap etc.
