It depends on your style. But I love Primark. I know its slave labour and bad quality and BLAH BLAH BLAH. But I can't afford to shop anywhere else. Plus they have chinos in my size!!! You have no idea how amazing that is!!! I'm tall and skinny and most shops would have you belief my waistline is impossible with my leg length... Anyways, wear whatever suits you and makes you look good, as well as what you're comfortable in.
As for shirts; I like Hollister because of the quality and the fit. My family also has access to special offers and the Jack Wills Outlet Store online. I'm not a major Jack Wills fan but again good quality, fit and generally nice stuff. Only buy it if you can get it cheap though. Maybe you could try shopping online for bargains. ASOS is good because if you don't like it / it doesn't fit you can just return it.
I'm tired. I hope this somehow helped.
Edit: and another thing. Now is the time to experiment with your style: when you're young and you can get away with it. I bought a tweed jacket last summer. It's not really my thing but I like it and even though I don't have much chance to wear it I'm glad I got it. It's good to try new things, even when it comes to clothes.
Chinos are a good idea too. They just are. They're like jeans but less boring.
