We’re officially in fashion limbo: that time of year when it’s too soon to be thinking about your spring pieces (and too cold) but you’re feeling disillusioned with the winter clothes you so loved back in November.
Fear not though, as this time of year is the best time to set yourself the challenge of upgrading your look on a shoestring budget.
From shoulder-grazing earrings to a furry collar, we’ve scoured the high street for 8 of the best pieces under £50 that’ll breathe new life into your wardrobe.
The embroidered shirt
Pop this on over a roll neck or wear loose tucked into jeans.
The furry clutch
Textured accents are going nowhere, and this cute clutch is a cosy buy for the chillier spring days.
The backless loafer
Gucci’s backless loafers are still big news but the high street has some Insta-worthy copies. We won’t tell they’re not designer if you won’t…
The rainbow stripe knit
Traditional Breton’s in navy or black and white stripe are going rainbow bright for spring with technicolour colourways; look for a lighter knit that’ll be great for whatever the weather.
The shoulder-grazing earring
Whatever you’re wearing, add a pair of long, shoulder-grazing earrings and you’ll lift your look from then to now.
If you’re a fan of dungarees, you’ll love the look of a pinafore; their feminine counterpart are equally as cool and great to layer over the knits you’re bored of.
The colourblock Jeans
Inject a little contrast into your denim with a pair of colourblock jeans; what’s more, the darker shade down the side of the leg is super flattering too.
The geo cover up
Cardigans are great but if you want to push your outfit further, a knitted blazer is the perfect hybrid. Choose one in an on-trend geo print.
