Don’t let the designer price tag put you off this summer!

Every fashion student, or at least any student that is interested in fashion, dreams of having a designer wardrobe – the Chanel bag, a pair of Jimmy Choos, a Prada dress etc. However, we are stopped by one thing – the price tag. Have no fear! You can still look great whilst styling the latest High Street brands.
McQ - Alexander McQueen £1,210Oasis - £65
Graphic Content
One of the key trends this season, Graphic content can easily be worn as a dress with a simple pair of heels – or a top and plain bottoms. Alexander McQueen dress is unique with the mirrored affect highlighting the design. The Oasis dress uses an allover floral print and is a cheaper alternative to the McQueen.

Burberry £1, £29
The Bomber Jacket
With its new updated look, it can be easily worn. The satin look to the jacket means it can be worn with a pair of jeans or over a day dress. The Burberry jacket is made of satin and is a pastel pink. The jacket is more of a light pink, but is still a great comparison to Burberry. And at £29, it’s a steal!

Back to the 90′s
With the 90’s being hot on the catwalk this Spring / Summer, lots of leather / PVC dresses have come onto the market. The Versace dress, with its edgy heart and cross detailing, is very rock ‘n’ roll and definitely a head-turning piece. The ASOS dress uses studs, which have been on trend for a while now. These pieces could be styled with the Jefferey Campbells Litas (studded or not).

My verdict? Although I am a complete sucker for designer gear, the high street has definitely given them a run for their money. So, who says you can’t look a million dollars for a fraction of the price?
