Summer is in full swing and our wardrobes have fully adjusted. You'll still see some people out and about in tights and coats (download the Met Office app, please!) but our daily go-to outfits have included sandals, dresses and very few layers for quite some time. So we're fully clued up at this stage on the key summer trends, but there's always room for a little newness to last out the season.
Sometimes you don't want to drop a huge amount of cash in order to buy something worthwhile, but we also try to advocate shopping the high street sensibly. So each and every season, we'll always try to hunt down pieces that feel of the moment but that also show signs of longevity. You know the kind—those affordable pieces that aren't too adjoined to a passing fad and still feel classic enough to wear in the future.
We've scoured not only the best of the best (Mango, H&M, Topshop, Arket and more) but have also turned to some niche brands to see what you can actually get for under £50, and we believe you'll be pleasantly surprised (erm, hello, Teva sandals).
Our regular columnist Monikh is someone who we follow for sophisticated affordable finds as well as more expensive ones and often proves that the high-street offering has classics in addition to the big trendhitters, but there are plenty of other girls who lead us to greatness: Madeleine Bugge Karlsen, Emma Hill and Katrina of The Style Idealist are just a couple of the many we stalk.
