  • Laura’s Smart-Buy Edit

    Whatever price point you’re buying at, quality has to be paramount. So, when I’m considering a smart buy, I’m just as fastidious about beautiful fabric, well-thought-out cuts and considered details as I am when making a big investment. A £200 trench coat might, on first look, seem the same as one 10 times the price, but it all comes down to how it feels when you wear it. And if you find that smart buy that feels like a million dollars? Then you know you’re on to a winner.

    Oversized Stone Cotton Trench Coat£355

    If you can’t stretch to Burberry, premium high-street brands are worth looking at for trench coats. Just make sure the fabric is weighty enough to hang well. This Jigsaw style is spot on. 


    Crew-Neck T-Shirt£17

    I always get asked where I buy my T-shirts and the answer is Arket. This style is my favourite thanks to the heavy cotton and boxy, yet feminine cut. It comes in lots of colours, but grey marl is my pick for spring.  


    Mid Rise ’90s Loose Fit Jeans£29

    Gap does denim really well. These straight-legs have a cropped length, which will work with trainers and backless loafers. The solid wash gives them a polished look.  

    New Balance

    327 Trainers In White And Black£100

    After two years of searching for the perfect sleek-but-sporty trainers, I’ve recently invested in these. I’ll be wearing them with trouser suits and tailored pants. 


    Brushed Wool Navy Cropped Jumper£98

    Come spring, a cropped jumper is a useful staple to wear with high-waist jeans and trousers – especially if you want to show off a statement belt. This 100% wool style is perfectly minimal. 


    Icon Denim Jacket£55

    I like my denim jackets to have a smarter look, which is why this deep-indigo style has caught my attention. The cropped, boxy shape is such a classic. 


    Heckfield Suede Slouch Shoulder Bag£175

    It’s the simplicity of design that makes this a clever piece – nothing about it will date. I love suede in spring as it works well with whites and paler tones, plus it makes summery pieces feel city appropriate. 


    Necky Roll Neck Stripe Top£17.99

    When dressing for the in-between seasons, it’s a good idea to have light layering pieces that can be worn in place of knitwear. Instead of wearing a jumper over my jumpsuits, I’ll layer this striped top underneath. 


    Hailey Double Breasted Twill Blazer£298

    My go-to for tailoring on the high street is Reiss. You can tell time is spent on fit and details such as lining. This jacket sits beautifully and can easily be styled casually or smart. 


    Luisa Pleated Cotton-Twill Wide-Leg Pants£265

    Good-quality cotton trousers are one of my fail-safes during the spring months and Staud’s pleated wide-legs are at the top of my list. They’re an easy piece to wear with a T-shirt or light knit tucked in. 


    Mago Square Toe Stiletto Sandals£69.99

    I love the idea of dressing up cargo pants or chinos with a fun shoe. This sequin pair from Mango are so eye-catching and don’t feel like anything else I’ve seen. They are the ultimate ‘wow’ accessory to amp up casual outfits. 


    Waterproof Cape Jacket £104

    I have a very similar jacket to this which I bought years ago and still get asked about. The cape silhouette gives it a premium look and the hood is a smart idea for spring showers. 


    Marshmallow Gold Cuff£48

    This cute cuff is a real outfit enhancer – and it doesn’t even need a piercing. Just add it to your everyday ear stack for an extra glow of gold.
