Refreshing your wardrobe doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. We’ve picked our top pieces to pep up your spring look. The best bit? They’re all £50 or less…
A timeless trench, £45
Nothing signals spring like the return of the mac. Trade in your heavy winter coat for this sleek trench (). Available in four flattering shades, it’s both crease-resistant and water-repellent, making it a stylish solution to fickle weather. Complement the fitted silhouette with an A-line denim skirt and punchy red accessories.
The wear-anywhere dress, £29.50
A wardrobe essential, this knee-length dress will transcend the seasons with its effortless versatility. The chic pussy-bow ticks the trend box while the subtle print makes the perfect backdrop for showcasing pastel accessories. Team with opaque tights and boots now; bare legs and pointed flats later.
Red-hot heels, £35
Spring may be on the horizon but there’s still a good few months of boot-wearing ahead. Make it a joy, not a chore, with this showstopping flame-red pair. Prefer pumps? Add a dash of colour to your off-duty look with pointed red courts, à la Parisienne. Whatever you choose, pair with soft denim and you’re good to go.
The staple cable, £39.50
Boost your knitwear repertoire with this pearl-embellished turtle-neck. The chunky weight will keep you cosy on nippy January mornings while the bright cream hue will brighten dull winter complexions. Team with red lipstick and authentic-wash denim for maximum impact.
The asymmetric skirt, £45
There’s no escaping fashion’s current obsession with asymmetric hemlines and early adopters of the trend will know how flattering the silhouette is. Unsure how to wear? Try pairing with a slim-fitting, ribbed poloneck and slingback courts for a ladylike look with a twist. Statement earrings will elevate the outfit for evening.
The trousers to check out, £45
It’s hip to be square this season and Prince of Wales check is the need-to-know print. Walk the line in these tailored trousers and team with a slouchy cardigan for a nonchalant feel. Punchy accessories will keep the look contemporary rather than corporate, as will tousled hair and matt red lips. Your wisest investment piece for spring and only £45: what are you waiting for?
