If you have been following me for a while, you have probably noticed that I prefer splurging on classic handbags, shoes, knitwear and outerwear, but when it comes to basics such as jeans, shirts and trousers I favour purchasing those from high street stores.
My style is mostly uncomplicated and made up of neutral tones and sometimes black. The key (for me) when shopping for high street pieces is to stay within my colour palette and to keep my choices simple. In doing so, it minimises clashes, and the outfit looks more sophisticated and put together when paired with higher-end accessories and outerwear. High street stores I shop at are Zara, Massimo Dutti, Mango and H&M.
On the other hand, when it comes to higher-end accessories the pillars of my wardrobe, I prefer to pay more for classic handbags and shoes that I know won’t look dated in five, ten or fifteen years time. Similarly, with my outerwear and knitwear, I prefer spending more on wool/cashmere/camel coats and wool/cashmere sweaters that are in classic silhouettes that I know I can wear for many seasons to come. My favourite brand for outerwear and knitwear is Max Mara, I love the elegant and timeless pieces from this fashion house!
Do you mix and match high street and higher-end items? What do you prefer saving or splurging on?
