There’s a misconception that you can’t find classic wardrobe items on the high street—that the pieces are too trend-led and their appeal will fade when new sartorial movements come into play. However, we’re here to prove otherwise.
All of our favourite high-street brands are known for getting specific things right, whether that’s an entire product category, such as COS’s trousers, or a particular item, for example, & Other Stories’ wool-blend blazer. These are the items that are either available all year round or re-released every season, and it’s no coincidence that they’re also the brands’ bestsellers.
To save you time and help you identify these high street items that are genuinely worth investing in we’ve rounded up all the most expensive-looking pieces that tick the ‘classic’ box as well. And the list you’ll find below also happens to be perfect for helping you build out your autumn/winter capsule wardrobes. You’re welcome!
