It’s no secret that I love fashion and if I do say so myself, I have a pretty great eye for it. Funky fashion is my forté and usually when a new seasons rolls around, I’ll be looking for a few new bits and bobs to spruce up my wardrobe. These days I try my best to browse second hand items before looking elsewhere but sometimes you have no choice but to buy new or just fall in love with an item. These are the 10 best brands for funky clothes that I turn to in times of need!
The 10 Best Brands For Funky Clothes
I honestly don’t think I could love this brand any more. Since discovering them around 2 years ago, they have been my absolute favourite place for sourcing funky clothes. I find the majority of their clothes pretty damn affordable, too. There are items from them that I have paid more for but I have not once regretted a purchase as the quality and designs are way worth it. They have regular sales, too and often open an online outlet to grab some extra bargains. I have found some of my staple and all time favourite pieces in Monki, by far one of the best brands for funky clothes.
One of my holy grail brands is Nasty Gal. They provide so much fashion inspiration for me and they’re always bang on trend. Unfortunately they do tend to sell out of things quickly and not get them back in. So I would recommend you buying anything you find straight away if you can, to avoid being disappointed. Nasty Gal seem to vary in terms of sizing, some items have more of a wide selection than others but they do have a plus range that I’d deem decent.
What’s great about River Island is that they are an eclectic brand. I could look at one page on their website and find nothing I like, then go to the next and find a wardrobes worth of dreamy clothes. It’s definitely a place to shop when you have the time to have a rummage. Unfortunately their sizing isn’t the best, in my experience it has always ran quite small and their general price point is mid-high in terms of high street fashion. That being said, I think it’s really a brand to find beautiful, timeless statement pieces from.
If I’m being honest, Shein are massively hit and miss. However, the items I have had from them that have been good, have been brilliant. The key to navigating Shein is to check the reviews of each individual product to see if it’s worth the money quality-wise and to also check what the sizing is like. Their curve/plus range is also really extensive compared to a lot of brands. I can say that I’ve found quite a few really funky and fun items on Shein that I haven’t been able to find elsewhere, so I’d definitely recommend giving it a shot.
We all know and love ASOS as a sort of online supermarket for fashion, if you will. But did you know that their own brand designs are absolutely fabulous? They offer standard, plus-size, petite and tall sizing and are ever-expanding. The designs are good quality, affordable and cater for such a variety of tastes from plain black jeans to printed shirt dresses and lingerie to everyday underwear. Side note: their ASOS 4505 active wear is also brilliant.
The thing I love about Bershka is that a lot of their pieces are simple but have little accents which really make them something different. I have few items from Bershka but every one I do have, I have worn time and time again. Their quality is great, the clothes are affordable, the only thing I have to complain about is their size range. It’s not very inclusive at all but they’re a good brand to check out if you’re a size uk 14 or below.
I know New Look are a well known high street retailer but they’ve really improved the range of things they offer in recent years. As a teenager I remember just getting a lot of basic wear and slogan tees from them. Now I seem to fall in love with quite a few prints and items every time I browse online or instore. They are an affordable, comfortable and average quality brand and you can get some really fabulous bits from them.
Pull & Bear are a brand that I slept on for SO long. I thought it was going to be preppy fashion, similar to Hollister. Which of course there is nothing wrong with, it just isn’t my style. I’d say their general style is a mixture of boho and grunge and their shoes are some of the comfiest and funkiest I have ever owned. I also love looking in their mens section as they have some really great prints and tshirts, too! Definitely a great brand for smart/casual funky clothes.
The thing I love about LoveTooTrue is that their funky clothes are all handmade and designed by a small team of people. They pick and source their own fabrics and materials, too. I have known about this brand for a few years now and have bought a few items from them but their prices have almost doubled since I discovered them. Their current average price point is about £50 per item which is quite steep for a working class lady like myself. Not that I don’t think the products are worth these prices. They are just most definitely more of a luxury brand that I personally have to save to buy an item from. One of my favourite best brands for funky clothes as they also go up to a size 24 which I think is pretty fabulous for an independent company.
I found Joanie through Hannah Witton last year when they gifted her some clothes to wear. Their USP is that they sell “pretty clothes for nostalgic souls” which I personally think is adorable. They offer SO many different styles from grease-esque jumpers to rockabilly dresses and floral playsuits. Whether it’s an occasion outfit or comfortable everyday wear you’re looking for, there’s definitely something for everyone. They also run a competition on Instagram where they pick a “Joanie Gal” of the month to win a £50 voucher – all you have to do is tag them in a shot of you wearing something from them to enter!
