Street style goals
I love a designer buy as much as the next person (check out the accessories everyone was wearing at London Fashion Week) but I find that the items people get the most excited about are actually the high street ones. Something about the fact you don’t have to take out a small loan to afford them.
Case in point: the H&M power suit I wore on day two of LFW. So many people asked me who it was by, to which I whispered conspiratorially ‘it’s H&M’. Cue eyes widening and instant virtual shopping, because at just £65, it’s an absolute steal.
It got picked up by countless street style photographers, as well as fashion sites like Who What Wear, who also spotted it on the streets of New York (thanks guys).
So why is the suit so great you ask? Well, with its padded shoulders, nip ‘n’ flare waist and slighted flared trousers, it’s completely on trend, while the houndstooth motif makes it fairly timeless.
It’s super versatile too. I wore mine with monochrome mules and a green bag for a pop of colour, but you could layer the blazer over a roll neck jumper (yellow is very in at the moment), and swap the heels for trainers or a chunky boot.
