If you ask fashion girls their favourite shop on the high street, chances are most of them will say & Other Stories, as it has a strong reputation for delivering both quality basics and statement where-did-you-get-that pieces that feel elevated. August is a funny time to shop because bikinis and beach cover-ups will be displayed next to puffer coats and knitwear ready for those who like to get ahead of their wardrobe planning. Right now & Other Stories has the perfect transitional mix, with printed midis sitting alongside blazers and cardigans that you can start to introduce into your wardrobe again.
There are a few items in particular that the fashion crowd is really backing—and two are old favourites that have returned from last year. The cropped cream cardigan and boxy blazer are two of & Other Stories’ greatest hits, but we’re also loving the tiger smocked midi dress and daisy print mesh dress.
