High Street Fashion with Designer Edge

It’s been a minute since our last blog. So, we thought, why not come in strong with something that we know our Shop It To Me family ALWAYS wants to see. High street fashion that looks and feels designer. Yes, please!

Today, we’ve done some leg work for you and discovered some absolute beauties! And bargains too!

Everything in today’s blog is high street and super affordable but with a designer, high-end look that could easily be mistaken for a luxury piece. These are some of our fave fashion pieces to source for you. So – shop away and enjoy!

H&M Sweater Vests

Yes, believe it or not, everyone from Gucci to Acne are doing knitted sweater vests this season. And they’re so cute!

Layered over longline shirt dresses, this trend might not be the one you thought you’d be investing in this summer, but we bet once you’ve given it a try, you’ll be as obsessed as we are!

This H&M vest in soft pink is giving us all the spring Gucci knitwear vibes and the cropped blue one couldn’t be more perfect to pair over a long shirt dress with boots.

Madewell Woven Bag

Such a versatile piece, we’re SO into this woven tan tote bag from Madewell. Giving us all the designer vibes for just $148, this bag is the kind of style that you could take to the beach but also a dressed-up brunch or even work meeting. Pair it with an all-white look and it elevates it even more.

If you don’t have the perfect tan handbag to get you through the summer, this could be it!

Mango Quilted Bralette Top

Bralettes are a big look this season and perfect for dressing up or layering with an oversized shirt. But when everyone on Insta seems to be rocking Gucci or Off-White crops for hundreds of dollars, it’s slightly off-putting. Until now!

We love this Mango alternative bralette, that gives us all the lingerie-inspired vibes for just $49.99.

ASOS Dogstooth Wrap Blazer

We’ve seen snippets of dogs/houndstooth pop up this season through the huge black and white runway trend and this is one of our fave finds so far. From the UK’s ASOS, this blazer is just $56 – actually now reduced to only $32!! – but looks super chic and high-end.

We love the look paired with the matching pants but style it with just white jeans and wedges or chunky sandals and you’ve got an even more versatile summer piece.

We all love a blazer, right? Well, here’s the perfect one for summer. And it’s a steal.

Reformation White Linen Shirt

We’re seeing tons of linen shirts in the designer world this season and it’s a look that will last you season after season so we’re calling it a good investment this summer. BUT – if you don’t want to spend upwards of $500 on a designer linen shirt (and that’s totally fair enough!), we’ve found a perfect alternative from Reformation priced at $130. Not the cheapest item in our high street haul this week but defo still worth a mention as it’s beaut quality and you’ll wear it time and time again.

From huge oversized linen shirts to Jacquemus’ cult fave cropped shirt, there aren’t many rules when it comes to style with linen. It’s just all about a bold shape and a great quality fabric. This Reformation shirt is cropped with a tie-front, which we think is just perfect for the summer.

Wear it with anything from straight-leg jeans to a long, flowing maxi skirt in a statement print. Perfection.

ASOS Gingham Mini Slip Set

Another winning look from ASOS, we had to include this super cute set in the mix! A mini slip dress with slit and a layered matching shirt over the top, this outfit looks top $$$ but the dress is actually just $26. Can you believe!?

Topshop Faux Leather Shirt Jacket

Last but by no means least, we’re finishing with this WOW piece from Topshop. You might not think of leather as ‘summer’ but in this stunning powder blue palette, it couldn’t be more perfect for the season.

If you’ve been into the shacket trend over the winter and spring, this is the latest update on the look.

In a faux croc leather, we’re obsessed with the cut and shape of this jacket and it looks SO designer we can’t even stand it! Style it super casually or wear it over a slinky black slip dress on date night.
