3MARKS AND SPENCER

I know I’ve been going on and on about peasant tops, but it’s true that if you choose 100% cotton fabrics then you have no reason to spend lots of money on them. Most blouses are made in India regardless of the designer, so for basic ones with not too much detail opt for High Street versions. This one will look great with jeans or a denim skirt when the weather brightens up.

2MANGO

I have a thing about jumpsuits at the moment, they are really practical and stylish. A friend of mine wore this jumpsuit to dinner a few weeks ago and I fell in love with it. It is made from a lovely fabric, which looks expensive, and I love the long sleeves and the fact that it doesn’t reveal any decolletage. It’s a good winter buy.

5DUNE

These are a brilliant buy; they look like a Valentino shoe without trying to be a rip off of one. At £59, these are the perfect example of how you find gems on the Great British High Street. They come in three colours, but I would go for black because they look more expensive.

4TOPSHOP

I’m a big fan of Topshop jeans and was excited to hear they were launching new styles. I really love a jean with a little bit of a flare and even though I’m usually a MiH devotee, I really wanted to try this new Topshop style. They have a lovely fit.
