The high-street is host to a range of fashion brands which supply us with on trend clothing all year round. These stores flood our streets with clothing items you will want to add straight to your wish lists. Last Autumn we missed out on being able to dress up for this season, but not this year! Our post pandemic closet needs are being met by these brands.
You would not believe that some of the products available are right from the high-street as there are many hidden gems within these stores that do not look like they belong to the price tag!
From Zara to Mango, here are 10 high street staples we have been loving and been having to double take at where they are from!
Mango purple co-ord
Whenever you’re stuck for something to wear a co-ord is always the best option. It is an outfit already put together for you but makes a huge fashion statement. This set from Mango is the perfect going out attire with the bright purple matching this autumns lively colour palette and the tailored design making it hard to believe it’s from the high street! The fine knit bottoms will also keep you warm whilst remaining glam with the hem slits and flared design.
Zara Metallic Draped Dress
Dressing up for when the weather is colder does not mean we need to completely cover up, we can still go out in our dazzling dresses. This metallic draped dress from Zara matches the going out memo for this season, with the iridescent silver colour reflecting the sparkling theme. The cowl neckline also adds an elegant touch and fits the luxurious design alongside the material.
Zara Faux Leather Overshirt
The faux leather overshirt is the go-to layering piece this autumn. This shirt from Zara is the perfect oversized fit whether you want to pair it with a thick knit or wear it done up with trousers and boots. The front patch pockets adds extra lavish detailing, and the pleather material elevates the shacket and makes it more chic.
Zara Textured Cropped Jacket
This cropped textured jacket from Zara will make a stylish addition to our wardrobes. The fuchsia colour is the standout component of the jacket as well as the boucle textured material ensuring to keep you warm. Paired with jeans and ‘a nice top’ it will take a casual outfit and make it classy. The boucle style jacket is usually one we associate with an expensive price tag however not this one!
Bershka Faux Leather Trench Coat
The trench coat is a well-loved piece in our autumnal outerwear collections and this year it has a leather twist. You will be happy to know too you do not have to splash out the cash for one either. This faux leather black trench coat from Bershka has a tie waist detailing which is flattering on the body and the belt adds an expensive touch to the coat. The smooth black material will go with everything as well making it a good investment piece and the collar adding a smart touch.
Zara Corduroy Overshirt with Frayed Hem
The corduroy shirt is one we loved to style last year and are welcoming back this season gladly. Zara was renowned for this style of jacket in the previous Autumn and so we are excited to see them release even more this year. The thick material makes it the perfect transitional piece as well as this dusty purple colour guaranteed to brighten up our wardrobes. The frayed hem also creates a casual look for those more laid-back days.
Zara Faux Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is an essential which will re-emerge each year time and time again. This faux jacket from Zara can be dressed up or dressed down with the metal detailing giving it an upmarket look. As well, the ecru cream colour is the perfect alternative to the basic black jacket when you want a fresh take on this style.
Zara Cotton Shirt Dress
Shirt dresses can be styled in a range of ways, and this is why it can’t be missed out of our closets. Paired with heels and a glam belt for those nights out or layered with a knitted vest and boots for a daytime look. This blue Zara shirt with the cuffed long sleeves and the pleated front detailing makes the dress extremely flattering and not something you would expect from the high-street! It would go perfectly with a cream coloured sweater vest or worn alone.
Zara Quilted Shoulder Bag with Chain
The shoulder bag has been a must-have accessory the past year and this electric blue coloured one adds a bold spin on it. Colour clashing is a trend we have seen this year as well, so this bag would be the perfect accessory to follow this style, paired with a blue shirt dress such as the one above. The thick chain shoulder strap and quilted exterior also creates a sophisticated touch.
H&M Brown Oversized Shirt Jacket
The shacket is a garment we have seen flooding our social media feeds and this brown one from H&M is one that keeps appearing. Seen styled above oversized with boots and a crossbody bag, the felted material is casual but styled with the right accessories it can be dressed smartly. The low dropped shoulders and large open chest pockets makes it trendy as well as a practical jacket to keep you cosy. The brown colour also makes the perfect neutral colour to pair with anything.
