"The voice and style of the social generation"


Keeping one step ahead of the trends or making a subtle style change is easy with and with up to 100 new pieces hitting the site every day and a new collection each week, never stops - it is 24/7 fashion at its best. From the UK's best kept fashion secret to one of the fastest growing international retailers, has quickly evolved into a global fashion leader of its generation. Combining cutting-edge, aspirational design with an affordable price tag, has been pushing boundaries since 2006 to bring its customers all the latest looks for less.



About PrettyLittleThing

Founded in 2012, PrettyLittleThing ("PLT") originated as an accessories only website. It soon saw that its customers wanted to buy top to toe outfits and introduced a clothing range in 2013. Since then PLT has grown into a forward-thinking fashion brand offering killer affordable style to female fashion breakers and makers. The business is all about the right here, right now. PLT doesn't just anticipate trends; it creates them, taking inspiration from the catwalk, celebrities, and influencers, making sure they're available for the customer to shop on PLT's site before they're available anywhere else.
