We Try Before You Buy: 12 High-Street Pieces Our Editors Love the Most

This month is when the big drop on the high street happens, which is when all the new season collections arrive at once. With hundreds of teddy-bear coats and cord trousers around, it can be hard to pick out the best and decide which things are actually worst investing in. So as part of our We Try Before You Buy series, we've tried on all the new hero pieces from New Look, Topshop, Whistles, Arket, & Other Stories and more. We've covered the basics and found two of the best coats from John Lewis and Partners and Karen Millen. Then we come to the key "trend" buy: the corduroy suit. Our editors tried on trouser suits by Mango and New Look. Keep scrolling to see the 12 new-in high-street pieces our editors are loving this season.
