Where woulod you reccomend I shop for really good, really cheap fashionable clothes. As long as they survive the washing machine I'm happy.

Shhhhhh, don't tell anyone, but i like Peacocks, Select, and New Look!

Asda and tesco are ok.

george at asda are really good, and prices really affordable as well.

colditz Sun 01-May-05 14:39:09

Oooo, yes, George at Asda are lovely.

I have bought the occasional thing from tesco and find them pretty good in terms of long lasting and not going out of shape after one wash. But I am not sure how fashionable they are as I don't follow fashions

Primark have brilliant things for unreal prices.
Have just bought some brown linen cargo type trousers and a beige rouched top all for £9! Bargain!

Select is quite cheap and also Bay Trading can be quite reasonable.

H&M I reckon

Newbarnsleygirl Sun 01-May-05 15:25:47

OOhhh yeah H&M definatly.

I forgot about that one.

would definatley recommend new look, and tescos, and asda, the clothesd are so cheap and they have fairly up to date clothing, which survives the washing machine!
i also like mkone and primark, which always have fasionable clothes (primark are being sued by monsoon for ripping off some of their designs), but imo they don't last as long as clothes from the other 3 shops.

For basics I would go to DPs, Topshop, Miss Selfridge they are not super cheap but last much much longer.

Thanks guys. I have never heard of Select (must do a google). I have bought from Primark but the crowds are unbelievable (as are the prices) where I live. I will get there early next time.

I will have a look at the others you have mentioned.

my absolute favourite for cheaper clothes is new look - they get the top looks in so quickly, the accessories are spot on, they're so cheap it doesn't matter if they don't last...

my only sneaking doubt is - suspect their factories are not v. ethical - how otherwise could they produce the stuff so cheaply?

expatinscotland Sat 14-May-05 22:44:11

New Look

misdee Sat 14-May-05 22:45:25

ASDA as they do my size.

TwinSetAndPearls Sun 15-May-05 15:22:47

Since being a SAHM I have had to convert to cheap clothes and I would recomend New Look and Hennes. I think Hennes have the quickest turnover of lines so tey can keep up to date. tesco's is also good for designer inspired copies.

TwinSetAndPearls Sun 15-May-05 15:23:50

For the ultimtae in copies at cut price it would have to be Zara, not dirt cheap but much better quality and a bit more cutting edge!

flamesparrow Sun 15-May-05 15:26:07

Primark for me... just got a great gypsie skirt from there!

Tesco's stuff is always in the magazines, they do really good copies of very designer stuff (Chloe, Dior etc.).

Can't go wrong with Top Shop either for basics.

Oh, and TK Max. Bought my sister a lovely white gypsy skirt from there for £10 and a Lonsdale boy pants and vest set for £9.99. Got myself a DKNY white bra rrp £36 but it was £12.00 in there. You have to rummage a bit but its well worth it.
