    It depends what you want the clothes to do.

    I agree that if you want basics that will last you a couple of years, then Primark* is a good place to start (I'm not saying all Primark clothes won't last longer than 2 years, but I wouldn't rely on them to last longer than that). You could also consider looking at supermarket clothes - Tesco and Asda usually have some nice things when I go in.

    I get annoyed with clothes getting shabby really quickly, and looking at the contents of my wardrobe, I'd be more inclined to buy from TKMaxx, particularly if you fancy more interesting/individual clothes. I have stuff from there that I've been wearing for over 5 years, and it still looks quite presentable. If I was going to spend £10-£15 on a t-shirt, or £15-£20 on jeans, I would definitely choose to buy something from TKMaxx (reduced from the RRP) rather than buying full price from almost any other store.

    It might also be worth trying several items on in the different shops you're considering, and see which ones cut their clothes most appropriately for your shape (bearing in mind that there will still be some variation within stores). There's not much point in trying on dozens and dozens of tops from a particular shop when they consistently don't fit you properly.

    Is there an H&M where you're going shopping? They've got nice stuff.

    And everywhere is massive sales at the minute, DP has buy one get one free too, but I think they're starting to run outta stuff .

    I sound like a massive salesperson for the high street.

    ^^Agreed. I love Zara too. There's a noticeable difference in price between the more expensive items and those suitable for everyday wear. That said, you could also try Dorothy Perkins - the reductions in their current sale are amazing!

    Enjoy your shopping!

    I find it difficult to stick with the clothes I have... with the always changing fashion trends. Therefore I shop at Primark mostly but if you have more of a "classical" style, then definitely go for the likes of Topshop.
