I’m something of an affordable shopping expert, having cut my fashion editor teeth on a weekly magazine that had the sole purpose of showcasing the hottest pieces on the high street. And although my tastes and budget have evolved over time, still, nothing beats the buzz of finding something affordable and stylish and that you know is going to look so much more expensive when you wear it.
So, when my colleagues asked me to create an edit of trendy outfits under £100, I was more than up to the challenge. I scoured social media to unearth a selection of outfits I really love, and then I began tracking down the frugal pieces I needed to re-create them. I knew I could (and would) do the homages justice, but even I was impressed at just how many I was able to assemble without breaking a sweat. It’s a testament to how strong the high-street is this season. Below, you’ll find the fruits of my labour.
I’ve deliberately selected an array of looks that are sure to appease any type of dresser. From chic minimalist ensembles to the throwback pieces adopted by Gen Z, scroll on to see 11 trendy outfits under £100 to shop now.
