Just walking down a British high street it’s clear to see that every major store is now filled to the brim with new season collections—and this means only one thing, summer is just around the corner. If you’re anything like us you’ll be chomping at the bit to go wild with a total wardrobe re-vamp and then totally regret it when you check your rather bruised bank account. Well, at Who What Wear UK we’re all about finding those must-have pieces at seriously low prices, under £50 in fact in this instance, that go the distance, being chic and useful way beyond one wear.
We’ve scoured not only the best of the best—Mango, H&M, Topshop, Arket and more—but we’ve also turned to some of our favourite designers to see what you can actually get for under £50, and we believe you’ll be pleasantly surprised (erm, hello new Ganni floral tote and Castana espadrilles).
Monikh—someone who we follow for sophisticated affordable finds as well as more expensive ones—proves that the high street offering has a lot of classics in addition to the big trend-hitters. We can't wait to get our hands on her new season H&M zebra stripe dress, for example, but if you want a plainer option you'll find it too.
