Lapin de Lune, I would say IMO Topshop> Zara > H&M. Not all the items in Topshop are made of great materials, however I feel they hold up the longest generally speaking. My experience with Zara has been overall good however I feel like the quality is either fantastic or poor, not necessarily consistent, I feel the same way about H&M.

I have to agree with Belle Princesse. To me Zara is inbetween Topshop and H&M, H&M having the lowest quality items.

i HATE topshop's quality. i remember the old days (god) when the most expensive coat in topshop was £60-70. now it's gone out of control. there was a documentary which showed that topshop often have their garments made in factories used by other cheap brands (e.g. primark). this isn't to say that the quality is terrible and that you should never ever buy anything from there, but the pricing is just totally off. H&M's quality is worse.

zara's cuts etc are more timeless and chic - and in my view, warrant the price. i have a zara dress i still wear from 7 years ago and everyone always compliments it

H&Ms quality is just bad. i bought some plain tshirts a while ago, i wash my clothes b4 i wear them, so i washed these tshirts and they came out the washer with lot of holes.
Esprits quality used to be awesome, but the thin coles get holes easily too. and i noticed some of their clothes start to smell after some time.
zaras quality is good i think. i don´t have this hole-experience with zara.
(i dont own anything from topshop)

The quality of Zara and Mango clothes used to be really good. Then they got really expensive and the quality decreased. But I still think that H&M has the worst quality out of all the high street stores. I've had the best experiences with Uniqlo so far. I do think that the quality of the accessories at Zara is pretty good, though. Especially the bags and shoes

Hello everyone I bought these booties a few days ago - I needed a new pair of nice black high-heeled boots as my old pair is completely ruined (they did receive wayyy too much love). I bough them because they look a bit Wang-esque, the heel is kind of thick and I am into the cap-toe trend this season. To be honest, I would have never thought that they will be sooo comfortable - I can literally walk miles in them. The heel is 10cm, they cost 200 litas (about 60 euros) and worth every penny.
