Finding the best pieces on the high-street is hard work, even for editors whose job it is to do so. With so many websites and new-in sections to cover, it takes dedication and, quite literally, an entire team to ensure we don’t miss an incredible new drop or a soon-to-be bestseller as we scroll. Another method we use to ensure we see every high-street piece going? Instagram. There’s a handful of influencers who we religiously follow solely for their loyalty to the high-street (something we have in common), and we thought it was high time we shared them with you.

Whether it’s uncovering the sleekest minimal items from Arket, spotlighting expensive-looking wardrobe essentials from H&M, or unearthing the next cult buy from & Other Stories, these influencers are an extension of our in-house affordable fashion-loving army. Scroll below to see the high-street fashion influencers who always unearth the best pieces and then shop their impressive looks.
