High End to High Street


You don’t have to splash the cash to get the designer look; I’ll show you some high street dupes for the high end pieces that we all lust after, but can’t afford!

Nautical stripes are huge right now, with designers such as Saint Laurent showcasing nautical stripes in his Parisian Rock ‘n’ Roll catwalk collection, but you don’t have to pay a fortune to get the look.



This gorgeous striped silk-satin midi skirt from Tibi is effortlessly chic, slip on a black shirt and a pair of oversized shades for instant Audrey Hepburn esque glam. Unfortunately, this beauty also comes with an A List price tag of £665 from Net-A-Porter.

This monochrome textured midi skirt has the same, classic A-line shape and nautical stripes as the Tibi skirt above, but is an absolute steal at only £19.99 from Newlook. The midi skirt is a wardrobe staple for 2015, so make sure to invest in one, and this monochrome option is great as it’s so transitional – this piece can see you from work to drinks with just a simple switch of accessories.

One of the biggest trends for spring/summer 2015 is denim, but we’re not talking your standard denim jacket here, this is denim as you’ve never seen it before, skinny jeans are out, being replaced with baggier styles like boyfriend jeans and mom jeans. Designers such as Burberry and Tommy Hilfiger have been showcasing denim with shearling, cutwork, extreme rips and crystals, and more is more when it comes to this season’s denim so don’t be afraid of layering! (Oh yes, think the double denim look favoured by 90s girl band Bewitched)!




While these R13 mid-rise boyfriend jeans from Net-A-Porter are stunning, they will set you back a whopping £495 pounds; that’s a lot of money for something that’s already ripped!
