We take a look at some of the best and most affordable high-street pieces this season, from statement midi dresses to print blouses.
Animal Print Blouse, £29.50, M&S
Animal print was a huge trend for AW18, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Formal enough to add some flair to your workwear look, and yet stylish enough to pair with jeans and heeled boots for an evening out, this versatile blouse is a seasonal must-have.
Black Satin Skirt, £19.99, New Look
You’ll probably find a satin midi skirt in just about every high street retailer at the moment, but that doesn’t mean we love them any less (it just makes us want them in every colour). But if you’re keeping it simple, this elegant black number will quickly become your new go-to piece. Pair with a white tee, trainers and a leather jacket for a comfortable off-duty weekend look.
Seattle rope tote bag, £27, Topshop
Inject some colour into your outfit with a bold bag – a simple way to create a whole new look without spending a fortune. A high-street take on the fashion favourite Shrimps Antonia Pearl Bag, this statement Topshop bag comes in at a fraction of the cost.
Button Peg Trousers, £29, Topshop
The perfect companion to a chunky high-neck knit, these khaki button peg trousers from Topshop are ideal for autumn and can be best worn layered up with matching earthy hues – think deep orange, beige and brown.
Denim utility jacket, £24.99, H&M
Tap into the denim trend with this slouchy utility jacket. Throw it over an oversized hoodie if you’re venturing out on weekend stroll or go all-out in double denim, however you choose to wear it, you can’t go wrong with classic blue denim.
Stone Straw Effect Cross Body Bag, £19.99, New Look
This handy little bag is an absolute steal at just £19.99. Big enough to fit all the essentials but not too bulky for daily use, this cute accessory will see you all the way into the summer months.
Fine knit jumper, £19.99, H&M
It might be freezing outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a pop of colour to your look to cheat the season. This cosy pastel jumper will add a refreshing twist to any casual look whilst most importantly keeping you toasty.
Rustic Dress with Knot, £29.99, Zara
Invite some sunshine into your autumn wardrobe with this bold yellow midi dress. In a season synonymous with darker hues, dare to be different and stand out from the crowd in a vivid canary yellow shade – if you’re feeling the chill, just add a pair of tights, some chunky boots and a longline coat.
Wooden crossbody bag, £19.99, Zara
Forget spending ages rummaging through an oversized handbag, you’ll have everything you need in this compact wooden crossbody from Zara, one of our favourite pieces this season.
Skinny Trousers, £25.99, Zara
Go pink or go home – these skinny trousers are an easy way to give your workwear a new lease of life. Formal enough to wear to meetings, but a refreshing contrast to classic greys, blacks and blues, you’ll be the focus of the office for all the right reasons.
Soft sweater, £29.99, Zara
Wrapping up has never looked more stylish in this super soft sweater in bold purple. This is a lovely shape if you prefer a more fitted jumper, especially when teamed with skinny jeans and brogues.
Tie Side Blouse, £29, Topshop
Ideal for warmer days, this light blouse with tie waist detail can be pulled in at both sides to create a flattering fit. Whether you’re dressing casually or formally, this also comes in different colours so you can switch it up depending on your mood.
