HIGH STREET KNITS

 

I've styled 4 affordable knitwear looks for autumn, featuring a jumper that would make The Grinch jealous and my first ever Marks & Spencer cop...

THE WERQUE DRESS

Marks & Spencer £45

This dress is so versatile. It's incredibly demure, allowing your look to remain professional - even in a pair of fire engine red stilettos. The side split means that you can also pair it with trainers and still look feminine and edgy. Theres a gorgeous loose tie at one hip which gathers in the material and creates a flattering silhouette. Ideal for people like me who prefer wine to exercise.

Excluding the shoes, this whole outfit cost whatever £19.99+£7.00 equals. The trousers were a find in the H&M sale a few years ago and I wear them all the time. This light knit is equally as good a steal at £19.99. It feels a lot more expensive as its super thick and feels really secure despite the naked shoulder. There's a lovely tie at the back which makes it look like ballet-wear and therefore tres chic. I recently dressed it up with a pair of black velvet mules and white sweatpants, but I love it the most with my Air Max's.

THE NEON

Zara £39.99

The neon glare from this jumper rivalled the glare on my boyfriend's face as he stated he would not be going out with me in public if I wore it. But I absolutely love it. It's so garish, and yet it matches EVERYTHING. It goes beautifully with tweed and tortoiseshell, looks cool with chunky trainers, or just with simple black accessories as pictured. P.S. I'm sure these jeans were also £7 from H&M.....

This oxblood knit is so lightweight and feels really expensive. The sleeves are really long and weighted and they're a beautiful shape. Last month, I paired this piece with white jeans and white patent buckle heels, but it also looks great dressed down with a skirt and sneakers. I love it with this polkadot skirt, and my patent sock boots which I bought years ago after the Dior sock boot thing happened, and they've proved to be so timeless.

CLOTHES I CAN'T AFFORD: OCTOBER


For this month's edit of Clothes I Can't Afford, I thought it would be more fun - and practical - to put together a versatile capsule wardrobe on account of the changing seasons. As always, I've mixed in some sportswear which makes it really easy to interchange the items between day and night and during unpredictable weather. Get ready for camel, leather and accents of blue from Victoria Beckham, FILA and lots of my favourite, Zara...
