In 2023, I’m being thrifty and smart with my money. Instead of shopping my favourite brands’ new collections at full price, I’m aiming to find the best deals possible.
Many high street brands have lesser-known outlets, like Mango. But what about & Other Stories?

The H&M-owned label is one of my absolute favourites. If you’ve been keeping your eyes peeled on their new in section, you’ll know they’re killing it right now.
But if you can save some pennies, why wouldn’t you?
Does & Other Stories have an outlet?
Some brands have outlet stores, where absolutely everything inside is generously discounted but sadly & Other Stories isn’t one of them.
That being said, there are plenty of places to find cheaper options from the brand.
Stories often has sales and sends discount codes to its newsletter subscribers, and you might be able to find a good deal on their pieces in the ASOS outlet.
Next up, you can try resale sites like Vinted, Depop and eBay – and if you’ve exhausted all those options, why not try the & Other Stories buy and sell Facebook group?
Is & Other Stories high end?
No, but it can easily be mistaken for a luxury brand.
As well as their beautifully-designed pieces, they’re a beauty and lifestyle brand too.
The brand is a treasure trove of great finds. They have a carefully curated collection of everyday essentials, luxury-smelling fragrances, and an impressive makeup collection.
The Déjà Vu Mood Roll-On Perfume trended on beauty TikTok recently when users hailed it as a Baccarat Rouge dupe.

Is H&M the same as & Other Stories?
Both brands are under the same company, but they each have a unique style. While anyone can wear H&M, it’s a more affordable option catered to younger people, while & Other Stories offers higher quality and more expensive pieces.
H&M initially wanted to create a cosmetics brand but felt it was too narrow of an idea, so they instead decided to develop a fashion brand that offered elegant and feminine designs with an eclectic touch.

Do & Other Stories run small?
Some pieces come up small and others are on the larger side, but it really depends on the atelier. Many online reviews rave that the brand’s items are relatively true to size, and that’s been the case in my personal experience.
Visiting their store and trying on their clothes is the best way to determine if their pieces will fit. Luckily, they have 14 locations all over the UK, meaning you can walk into any store near you.
