What to Buy On The High Street Now

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

A?BOMBER JACKET

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.

We love the subtle military detailing on this twill version from Topshop.

METALLIC FLATS

Flat shoes are no longer the understated daywear option they used to be. This season, they’ve been given a bit of pizzazz with metallic shades and embellished detailing.

These pretty gold flats are on sale now at Mango.

DROP EARRINGS

Leave the subtlety of studs for another season, summer is all about oversized drop earrings. Wear only one for extra fashion kudos.

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.

Havana beaded owl earrings, €12.50 at Accessorize

A SHIRTDRESS

It’s the season of the reimagined white shirt, and the shirt dress. Turn this traditionally smart look on it’s head by pairing your shirt dress with sliders or sandals instead.

This print shirtdress from Warehouse will see you right through to autumn with it’s utilitarian base colour of navy.

Bird print shirtdress, €42 at Warehouse (on sale now)

A LADYLIKE HANDBAG

A neat boxy handheld bag is right on trend, but also a staple piece you’ll want to have in your wardrobe always. Choose something with pattern or a vibrant colour to elevate your style status.

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 13.23.53

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.

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 13.28.38

Mini embossed handbag, €29.95 at Zara

DENIM CULOTTES

They’re the coolest way to wear denim now. Choose a light wash with a frayed hem, or go ultra smart in indigo denim.

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 13.35.50

These River Island culottes hit just the right spot. Wear with something ultra-feminine like a sheer blouse for a cool mix of boy meets girl.

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 13.38.39

Blue denim dip-dye raw hem culottes, €50 at River Island

A LOGO HOODIE

The athleisure trend is going nowhere, and this season’s must-have piece is a slogan or logo hooded top. Perfect for chilly summer evenings, it looks great thrown over floral dresses and skirts.

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 13.44.17

This collegiate-style sweater from H&M has a traditional kangaroo pocket and a soft brushed inside – so retro!

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 13.48.24

Printed hooded top, €24.99 at H&M
