2017 Trends to Invest In – Affordable Edition!

As an accompaniment to my 2017 Trends video, here’s my pick of the same trends at slightly lower price points. I’m a firm believer that what you should spend and splurge on is entirely subjective – for some, amazing tailoring might be key, for others, it will be accessories all the way.


I obviously like to spend on accessories but as I get older, I’m happy to invest in a few key clothing pieces which I think will see me through a few seasons – and particularly so, if it make me crazy excited to wear them!

Lady-like Loafers

The silhouette of the shoe is so incredibly important in this case and I will always look for a pointier toe, even if I go for a block or chunky heel. If you have the legs of a super model, this really isn’t necessary but for mere mortals, then flattering details are of crucial importance IMO 🙂

Ruffles Everywhere

I love a delicate trend and they don’t come much more feminine than this. This is an easy one to get for less as the ruffle trend is huge at the moment. My favourite way to wear it is in a knit as it’s a bit less expected than on a blouse but there really are so many options to choose from!

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘widgets.rewardstyle.com’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

Pleated Skirts

ASOS rules supreme in this case – SO many pleated skirts! You may sacrifice a bit on material quality but no one but you will notice so if fabric isn’t something you’re fussed about, it’s a great way to save whilst still indulging in this super pretty, wearable trend.

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘widgets.rewardstyle.com’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

Logo-mania 

This is the trickiest one to save on unless you go the replica route which I’m not such a fan of. That said, if you’re willing to splurge a bit, then the small Gucci camera bags still get you the look for half the price of the Marmont flap bags. I received mine today and I am in LOVE! It’s absolutely gorgeous, I can’t wait to film a video on it 🙂

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘widgets.rewardstyle.com’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

Bell Sleeves

Saving possibly the best until last – there’s nothing more fun than a bell sleeve at the moment and there are some wonderfully affordable options out there. My Topshop ones are a steal and so wearable but you can also get the style in chunkier knits too.

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘widgets.rewardstyle.com’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);
