I’m something of an affordable-shopping expert, having cut my fashion-editor teeth on a weekly magazine whose sole purpose was to showcase the hottest pieces on the high street. And although my taste and budget have evolved over time, still, nothing beats the buzz of finding something affordable and stylish that I know is going to look so much more expensive when I 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 more affordable pieces I needed to re-create them. I knew I could (and would) do the outfits 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, these 11 trendy outfits are all under £100. Keep scrolling to shop them now.
1. PATCHWORK DRESS + STRAPPY SANDALS
Style Notes: It might be autumn, but dresses are still trending in a big way, and one of the coolest types out there is a dress with a mix of prints. Jessica’s Rixo dress is still in stock, but if you’re on a budget, this Warehouse number will help you achieve her look.
