Affordable doesn’t have to mean basic. To make an impact without emptying your bank account, choose a statement colour knit and pair with jeans, trainers and a calf-skimming coat for easily-afforded chic that taps into all of this seasons street-style trends. At this price point, you can afford to have fun—take the opportunity to choose something a little out of your comfort zone. 

In this price bracket, wool is rare—garments are more likely to be made from a cotton/acrylic blend which makes them usually okay for a 30 degree machine wash. Keep like colours together, and in the case of any heavily embellished numbers (we’re looking at you, Zara), opt for spot cleaning or hand rinsing rather than a full wash to avoid losing any of that glitter.
