Here Are Our Fave High Street Pieces Of The Season

Nothing feels better than when your friends comment on your keen style for that expensive piece you’re wearing, only to discover that it didn’t hurt your pocket at all. We’re all not strangers to that moment, but most of the time though, it’s a tricky thing to pull off. Clothes that are mass produced are oft time poorly dyed or constructed.

A trick that we’ve picked up over the years is to look for subsidiary lines at fast fashion outlets. From Zara’s Studio Collection to Topshop Boutique, these collections often offer pieces of better quality, and look fancier than the label’s usual fare.

Above, the pieces you need to draw those compliments.
