Whether you're looking to create a capsule wardrobe or treat yourself to a statement piece, these British clothing brands will give your outfit a premium upgrade.

When we think of British clothing brands, shops like Reiss, Whistles, and Ted Baker instantly spring to mind. Fancier than your average store, they specialize in high-quality pieces which nod to clothing trends, but still have a timeless factor. As much as we love a good bargain, when you're shopping for the best jeans or best winter coats, it pays to pay more for these wardrbobe staples. If you shop carefully, you're guaranteed to get more bang for your buck as these well-made, carefully constructed items are likely to last a lot longer than fast fashion ones.

These high-end British clothing brands are our go-to for designer-worthy looks at a far more purse-friendly price. They may not be budget, but most won't break the bank either. 

“There is so much history in British clothing brands, and the heritage favorites like Burberry, Liberty, and Pringle have paved the way for many designers, both in the UK and internationally,” says Katie Eastwood, Stylist Ambassador at Stitch Fix.

White Stuff

White Stuff was created by two ski enthusiasts back in 1985 and the name of the brand refers to snow. It’s evolved massively since then, from two guys who wanted to fund their stays in the French Alps by selling t-shirts to a giant brand with hundreds of stores across the UK and Germany. Expect quirky prints, unusual color combos and easy-to-wear silhouettes all built to last—they are big on the details. The brand has had a recent makeover and now features more trend-led pieces with the unique White Stuff stamp on them. Sustainability is also key, with 60 per cent of all clothing being made using materials that are kinder to people and the planet. White Stuff are working extremely hard to make that figure 100% by the end of 2023.
