Investment vs Fast Fashion

While we all dream of the perfect Carrie Bradshaw walk-in-wardrobe, stuffed with sought-after designer labels, most of us don’t have a never-ending budget when it comes to our new season buys. Realistically, if we want to splash the cash on a few key must-haves then we need to rein in the pennies with those wardrobe basics. MELANIE PRYOR, Womenswear Manager at HARVEY NICHOLS BIRMINGHAM, picks her favourite AW17 pieces to splurge and save.

MORE DASH THAN CASH
