As we continue in the series on ‘Covet Shops’ – we will be looking into ways to you can enjoy your shopping experience and make it easy to find rare ‘cult-finds’ from newly launched fashion pieces, beauty, home goods, gadgets e.t.c., to what is trending out there.
If you’re looking into saving money or ready to splurge while you shop, ‘Covet Shops is here for you. The series also look into how to put cult-find fashion pieces together to create classic and trendy stylish looks at affordable prices, we look into cut-down prices in fashion, home goods, beauty e.t.c. to build your wardrobe capsule.
So in today’s ‘Covet Shops’ we are making a stop at our favourite affordable high street brands to save us some money, and not so much of saving money (not that there’s anything wrong with that) but sometimes finding the best fashion staples in order to achieve a summer style look we’ve got our eyes on are always from our favourite high street brands, the plus is that they are affordable, another plus is that they’re most likely the only brands that have many products in stock and in a variety of sizes.
So finding affordable summer fashion steals should come with a habit of looking into forever fashion pieces that can stand the test of time, fashion pieces that can work well with what your summer wardrobe already has, putting thought into the money you’re about to spend – ‘will it be a money well-spent situation?’, checking the quality of the fabric, the composition and tailoring -‘ will it be the best fit for my body?’. It’s also good to consider ways we can sustainably wear these fashion steals especially when going on holiday. Going on holiday can sometimes create a craving of wanting to buy new fashion pieces since it’s something that’s done only once a year. The truth about this is that adding a few staples to what you already have will save the planet and your bank account.
For example, you can invest in one oversized white linen shirt and wear it three different ways while on holiday – as a cover-up, as a top on denim shorts or wear it alone with strappy sandals for dinner. This will be a simple way to sustainably wear your fashion pieces saving the planet, money and keeping the baggage allowance rule.
According to the Guadian, a poll reveals that £2.7bn will be spent this summer on more than 50m summer outfits that will be worn only once, and most of the clothes are most likely from affordable high street fashion brands. Due to their affordability, consumers tend to buy more, and most of the time only get to be worn once, especially when on holiday, and soon as the holiday is over, they’re never worn again. At this point, we should also consider wearing these fashion pieces after the holiday and the following summer – this is why their staying power is very important when considering buying them.
That being said, what makes these fashion pieces a summer fashion steal? It’s because they’re trending, affordable with great quality, they were found on SS’22 runways, they’re worn by our favouirite celebrities, fashion influencers, and every street style IT-girls during fashion week. They’re fashion steals you can easily wear in various ways looking ‘Oh So Chic’ and can inspire you to know how to style yourself while on holiday or at home enjoying the hot weather.
