If I could be a mannequin for any high street store, I'd be a mannequin for Reiss. More specifically, Reiss 1971. I am lucky enough to have a few pieces, probably as the whole point of this range is that it remains timeless. Their jeans are AMAZING and fit incredibly well (I have a very normal size 10 figure, with a bum).
The 1971 woman is busy and doesn't have time to shop much, she buys a few key pieces and then keeps them for years (thats pretty much me). The range is accessible and comfortable - creating effortless style. In their shirts, they have extra tailorings that although isn't obvious it makes them fit a billion times better. Their stuff is easy to slip on, and can wear it to work and you can you wear it to play. Prices range from £49 to £249 (most stuff is under £150).
You can easily create the look in cheaper high street stores, but I promise you they won't last as well. Buy a couple of key pieces from the looks above and then add trend pieces around it. I am still wearing my boots from SS09 :) - and they look brand new. However, to totally contradict myself, my friend at A Pair and A Spare totally proved me wrong when she has a gorgeous pair of lace shorts just like the ones below made my a tailor in Hong Kong - see it here!
