Who honestly has enough money to buy everything they want, apart from maybe the Kardashians? It probably wouldn’t even be that fun — loads of clothes and bags and make-up and holidays and a big fancy house.
Ok, maybe it would be but sometimes shopping on a sensible budget (= just normal life) can be quite fun. In the same way we all like a charity shop haul or a sale buy, high street shopping is fun — getting on-point pieces for the smallest amount. You’ll probably love it more.
That’s why we’ve rounded up the best high street fashion buys for autumn winter 2016, and there are loads we want.
There is always a strong collection of high street dresses which we fall back on when we’ve got a wedding or party, and nothing in our wardrobe quite fits the dress code. (Shop our edit of the best dresses under £50.)
Our favourite thing is high street coats, especially right about now when the new season winter coats are dropping. Sure, it’s not cold yet (at all) but the best ones will sell out, so it’s definitely the time to think about it. Shearling is strong this season, as we saw at Chloe, and it’s already hit the high street shops. Warehouse has an amazing pink shearling coat, though it’s not all that cheap — at all, and Mango’s got a plush teddy-coloured style. We're obsessing over Zara's colourful patchwork cover-up too.
The shoes and boots are pretty much all you’d ever want, as well. Uterque is now up there with our favourite high street shops — and this season, it’s even better than before. The mid-heel pink loafers are so Gucci, and only £110.
& Other Stories has another strong collection. Our hero pair this season are the Camilla Elphick lookalike silver boots. In fact, we’re all wanting a pair of metallic ankle boots right now — one of the only things making us excited for the colder weather.
