Buying clothes

Loving your clothes starts with smarter buying. No more flimsy fabric and skimpy stitching that falls apart the minute you get it home.

Buying smarter can mean choosing clothes that are better made, and that will be a doddle to care for. Or maybe you don’t need to buy at all – you could hire or swap instead.

Buying pre-loved clothes can also be a fabulous way of getting a new look for a fraction of High Street prices. And vintage clothes mean you can be both chic and unique, as they often use colours and fabrics that you just can’t find in stores today.
