Shoppers regularly overlook Next as a place to find the latest trends, but honestly that couldn't be further from the truth. A look through its latest drop confirms what I've always known—you can snap up chic trend-led pieces for decent prices. All you need to be is a little savvy when it comes to understanding which items will stand out among the rest. As you probably don't have time to mess around and scour the whole of the Next website, here's where we step in.
We've taken it upon ourselves to go through all the new-in pieces from the retailer and spotted which items look more expensive than others. Here's a little secret: It's all about the finish and thickness of fabrics. You want to find items that aren't overly complicated and then you've hit on to a winner. This week, we've spotted a dogtooth dress that we could imagine being worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, a pleated skirt that looks straight off the S/S 20 runways as well as a pair of knee-high boots we just know will sell out.
