From H&M, Monki, New Look to Urban Outfitters, this week's team picks are in full celebration of the wonders of the British high street!
Nothing gets the pulse racing quite like a good old fashion bargain (okay maybe Bridgerton is up there too) and securing a 10/10 outfit for a price that won’t break the bank is always something worth celebrating. It’s clear by now that the gems of the high street including the likes of Mango, Zara and H&M mean a bigger price tag doesn’t equal a more stylish ‘fit, making a £100 outfit challenge a piece of cake for those dedicated to a scroll through ‘new in’ on the regular.
Knowing where to invest and scrimp is key, with items like denim, footwear and jackets often benefiting from a little extra £££ if you can help it. Jewellery, bags and basic tees or layering pieces can often be found at a lower price, forming the foundation of your look and allowing your statement pieces to do the talking.
From H&M, Monki, New Look to Urban Outfitters, this week’s team picks are in full celebration of the wonders of the British high street!
I’m honestly dreaming about sunny weather and being able to wear cute Summer outfits. I feel like ASOS is my go-to for affordable but good quality clothes. I loooooove this khaki wrap skirt from there I think it looks so stylish and it’s so wearable. Paired with a white racer vest, some chunky black flip flops, gold hoops and a shoulder bag, you’ve got yourself a 90s inspired Summer outfit with very easily interchangeable items.
I knew I had to start my outfit with this H&M dress, it’s such a steal and would be great for so many things; work outfit, beach day, out for dinner, general summer events! Paired it with some lovely sandals, and a fun bag from Zara with some gold earrings, I feel like I’m not dressed without a pair of gold earrings!
I’m ready to do the full wardrobe switcheroo and banish all my winter outfits to the loft so I’m manifesting a long stretch of sandal weather, strappy dresses and hats. As soon as it’s sunny, I’m all about ease and this crepe dress from H&M caught my eye for balmy bbq evenings, paired with chunky boy sandals and a ridiculously charming sun hat.
Shopping on a budget is what I’m all about! I’m not one to splurge so have some experience in shopping for a whole outfit for under £100, so here we go. Spring/Summer means I wear dresses all day every day so that’s an obvious addition. I’ll then just chuck on some accessories and head to the beer garden. Sorted.
ASOS is probably my most visited site along with Instagram and the weather app so I like to think I’m a dab hand at finding myself a bargain. Most of the time I still feel like a student when it comes to spending too and live for a good sale find so this challenge is right up my street. If we’re going affordable then Urban Outfitters isn’t usually my store of choice however this cute cami is so perfect for a simple, 90s look and I know I’d get so much wear out of it. I have to say the shoe choice is a little bold for me as I’m pretty safe in that department normally (the life of someone who is constantly battling blisters from anything other than well-worn ankle boots) but I reallyyyy love these chunky sandals and think they’d be perfect for summer. The jeans also bump the price up a lot here but it’s the sort of item you never regret spending on if you find the right pair!
