It’s pay day and you’re ready to shop but (sensibly) you’re doing it with a spending limit in mind. To save you hours of price checking we’ve made an edit of stand-alone pieces guaranteed to make an impact, whatever your budget.
The Transformative Top
Never underestimate the power of a great jersey top. Wear a simple tee oversized and off-the-shoulder to expose a contrasting bralet, knot a sweatshirt over your shoulders and choose pieces with attention to detail – think raw edged tank tops and badge-detail bodies.
Taking on this season’s trends doesn’t mean you have to buy a head-to-toe look - choosing one fashion-relevant piece can invigorate your day-to-day wardrobe. Look to jean shorts and jackets remixed with embroidered and patchwork detailing, and do a fresh take on the classic slip dress, which comes upgraded with pleats and lace trims.
If you’re spending more, focus on quality and longevity. Pick a luxe outerwear piece or accessory that will see you through summer and into AW16 with ease. A shearling denim jacketor silk bomber will work layered over summer florals for now and with super-fine knits later, while a minimal leather backpack will continually elevate a simple, everyday look.
