The high street is full of fabulous, and inexpensive, new-season micro trends. Here’s what to buy into now.


Forget the 1990’s grunge connotations, bomber jackets are back. But this time round they look modern worn with smart wide-leg pants rather than dirty denims.

These quirky owl earrings are a fun way to buy into the trend. Fashion doesn’t always have to be serious. A bit of whimsy goes a long way to lifting an outfit and making it unique to you.

Yellow is a tricky colour to pull off, but it can really add a punch of colour and freshness to an outfit. The embossed detailing adds interest too.
