As we all know, the fashion world seems to be playing on fast-forward at the moment -  new trends are coined almost weekly and designer brands are dropping exclusive collections left, right and centre. To be honest, it’s hard to keep up, but the hardest part is trying to keep up without putting yourself into financial ruin. 

Luckily for us who don’t have the luxury of shopping designer every month, the high street is full of gems that look expensive but actually sit in the more affordable sphere. 

Each week we round up 10 things from the high street that look like the real deal, this week's spotlight is H&M.

How we chose the pieces:

Aesthetic: Each week we choose one particular high street retailer and comb through their website to find pieces that look categorically luxe. This could range from trending colourways, classically tailored silhouettes or something that gives off an unexplainable je ne sais quoi.

Brand: Everything on this list is from one particular retailer and is available to shop now.

  • Tie-Belt Denim Jacket

    A denim jacket is the most versatile piece in your spring wardrobe. Throw on over a floaty dress, pair with more denim, a printed skirt or even tailored trousers.

  • Handle-Detail Crossbody Bag

    We're entering the season of the slingback. They have a classic silhouette with a timeless appeal.
