Normally when somebody tries to recommend a “fashion on a serious budget” high street store, you think of Primark and its never-ending flow of churned-out fashion for a fiver; cheap, poorly made and never as nice once it’s home as when you saw it on the rail. Nah, we all say, I’ll stick to Topshop and H&M. But perhaps new online fashion store DressRail can teach us to shop out of our comfort zone, and save more than a few pennies too, with their wide range of extremely affordable and actually quite cool clothes.
The beauty of this site is that the clothes don’t look like budget fashion at all – some of the items, like the buttery-tan coloured leather miniskirt and the camel-coloured shorts wouldn’t be out of place on a Celine runway, whilst there was some serious Sarah Jessica Parker, Halston Heritage-loving going on in the designs of some of the party dresses with their fluttering folds of chiffon and batwing sleeves. Scrap your Net-a-porter wishlist and head on over here instead – I’m predicting big things for DressRail.
