Making High Street Look High End*

If there's one thing I love to buy... it's clothes. I can spend hours and hours looking at the latest fashion and what I want to add to my wardrobe next. I love showing my style but I am also not one for a high price tag and clearly, it's impossible to have a whole new wardrobe every time a new season rolls around. However, I still want that stylish look every day on a realistic budget and this is how I go about it.

Spend more on your staples

Staples such as a classic pair of jeans, good quality tops, and versatile dresses can be worn in a variety of ways and with multiple different things in your wardrobe. These are the pieces you will wear the most often and reach for when in doubt of what to wear. Spending more means in theory they should last long and save you money as you wear them so often. I have a white blouse which cost me an arm and a leg but I will wear day in, day out for work or a night out I just switch up what I wear it with. The same with a classic pair of black skinny jeans and a pair of stripey trousers. Everyone's staples are different but splurge on your favourite items. Another example is a good pair of black trousers which will get you through anything from an interview to a funeral to a wedding depending on how you wear them.

Buy cheap trendy items

I absoluetly love some trends (I also hate some but that's another story...) Trends can be fun to follow and experiment with , however, we all know as much as we love them they will never stick around. So why not buy them cheaply and then if you only wear them for that season what's the big deal it was only £5! Primark is great for this and also online stores such as isawitfirst.com and Pretty Little Thing as they have great deals and sales.

Invest in a couple of luxury accessories

I don't think there has ever been a girl who at some point hasn't wanted a designer pair of shoes or a very nice handbags. They can be worn with so many different things and if your body shape changes they will remain the same and still work perfectly. As long as you pick something you have fell in love with then it will be worth the investment. You could look into pure Kashmiri shawls, designer handbags, unique fine jewellery and much more.

Buy expensive winter shoe and cheap summer ones

This is a bit of a stranger one but in the summer it's all about sandals and lightwear footwear whereas winter footwear needs to get you through the harsh weather conditions so it's best to pay a little more so they last a longer time.
