23 & Other Stories Must-Haves

& Other Stories has nailed it this season. Let’s be honest, the scandi-brand repeatedly knocks it out of the park with floaty summer dresses, pretty puff sleeve tops, structured blazers, and knitwear to boot, making it a shopping stalwart on the high street. But scrolling the brand’s ‘new in’ section my wish list instantly tripled with AW staples and Christmas party essentials.

When the carefully curated fashion brand came to Regent Street in London nearly 10 years ago, I was immediately hooked. Part of the H&M group, & Other Stories offers elevated pieces that are often minimal in design but feature an interesting detail or twist — making them, and you, stand out from the crowd. It also has some of the best denim on the high street, so it should come as no surprise I’ve already added these mood cut cropped jeans to my basket.

While I usually shop the & Other Stories sale (the brand is a little more expensive than its sister brand), there’s no denying the high quality of the clothes. They say you get what you pay for, and I’ve found myself willing to pay that extra bit more for something I know will last beyond two or three wears. It’s a more sustainable way of shopping too, and that’s something we’re all trying to get better at.

With Christmas party season on the horizon, & Other Stories’ sequin styles couldn’t have arrived sooner. This strappy sequin midi dress has gone straight to the top of my wish list for all-out glam, while I’m eyeing up these kick flare sequin trousers for New Year’s Eve. For something not so in-your-face, this metallic silk blend maxi dress could easily be dressed down with a structured shoulder knit jumper layered over the top.

For wardrobe staples, I’m seriously tempted by this oversized belted wool coat though opting for a waterproof hooded puffer may be a wiser choice given the UK’s weather forecast. As for what I’ll be wearing underneath, these straight leg leather trousers may be an investment but I know I will live in them. An open back satin blouse with a pretty glittery frilled bra peeking out from the back will complete the look.

I haven’t even gotten to accessories yet, but trust me when I say & Other Stories jewellery, bags, and shoes have also secured numerous spots on my shopping list.
