The 9 Most Expensive-Looking Pieces on the High Street This Week

Brought to you by a fashion editor.

I'm wearing a COS shirt and H&M trousers. 

We all want to look like our most-polished selves, don’t we? And, although sadly I’m not here to provide you with a week at a spa and an endless allowance at The Row, I am here to bring you the most expensive-looking pieces on the high street every week. It’s my mission to prove that you can find premium pieces to elevate your wardrobe without the designer price tag, and to make it easy for you to pinpoint the items on the high street that are really worth adding to your wardrobe. 

There are some amazing gems out there that your friends won’t believe aren’t designer, but there’s a lot to sift through to find them. That’s where I come in— as a Who What Wear editor, scrolling new-in collections is my hobby and I can spot an expensive-looking (and feeling) piece a mile away. I’ll be adding the best bits I find to this list. Some may be more ‘affordable’ than others, but you can be confident every piece is here because I believe it offers great value. 

Hopefully this edit helps save you time and money building a closet of classic pieces that bring joy and last more than a few seasons. Now to the good part, keep scrolling to shop… 

Does it get more timeless than a navy wool coat?

This piece may be simple, but something about the ruching and slashed neck makes it feel super expensive. 

Arket always do the best quality shoes— these new-in loafers have gone straight to the top of my wish list.
