3 Elevated Fashion Brands I Have on My Radar Right Now

If there's one thing you're bound to find a fashion editor doing in their spare time, it's having a full and thorough scour of the great British high street. It's full of unsung heroes, and with new drops landing almost daily, we like to have our ears firmly to the ground. However, the vast number of new-ins can make the task of finding a real gem a little daunting (note our endless number of open tabs), so it’s handy to know which brands and retailers will never let you down.

Our endless searches have allowed us to pinpoint the brands that make looking polished and feeling good as easy as possible. High benchmarks you say? Well, this is the test we've been putting pieces through to help filter the trends from the staples, the classics from the one hit wonders, and thankfully it hasn’t failed us yet. Naturally, it'll take you less than a minute of scrolling to notice some recurring brands in our edits for these exact reasons. Case in point: Reformation, Aligne and Everlane, whose pieces are the piece de resistance when it comes to that perfect balance between fashion and function. 



Reformation has made it into our best picks for bridalwear, New Year outfit formulas and our classic winter staples. We work hard, and it makes our stylish little hearts soar when we find pieces that work harder. With origins as an indie vintage store, they only design and distribute small batches, making every piece feel that little bit more timeless and special than the norm. We can’t get enough of their gorgeous cashmere collection and we’re not the only ones; Celebs, influencers and street style stars continue to return to the brand for hard working wardrobe heroes that will last a lifetime.

Aligne and Everlane follow the same formula of stylish but conscious staples and so our essentials edit felt a little naked without them. They’re the ones we find ourselves unashamedly repeat-wearing whether heading to Fashion Week, the office or brunch with friends, and there's no guilt attached – both brands are highly committed to using only recycled and organic materials. What’s not to love?

It doesn’t get better than these three for building your New Year capsule wardrobe. Expect cosy knits from Everlane, polished tailoring from Aligne and standout staples from Reformation. We take full responsibility if you become just as obsessed as we are.
