I Never Thought to Shop at This Overlooked High-Street Store—Until Now

·2-min read

If you are well versed in the art of high-street shopping, you'll know the immense satisfaction that comes from discovering a new brand to add to your favourites list. While I have known of Monki for years, for some reason, I had it filed under the Gen Z tab of my mental fashion folder, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it was never at the top of my priority list when a new season appeared on the horizon.

However, this season, I've spotted so many winning pieces offered up by this high-street brand, and these are no one-hit wonders. Acting like Arket and COS's cool younger sister, Monki has really tapped into the niche of versatile wardrobe staples with a fashion twist. Obviously, the age demographic means you get the odd crop top and micro shorts, but honestly, as I was scrolling through its summer drop, I found myself clicking on every other item.

If your style has minimalist undertones with a splash of print and colour, you're going to love this brand. We're talking clean-lined tailoring, graphic print tees, utility separates and throw-on dresses. I particularly love Monki's gingham offering this season, and I would happily wear its wide-leg trousers with a white tee and the slip-on daisy mules all month long. Pure bliss. Scroll down to see and shop my full edit.
