It's the most awkward time of year: we want to drape ourselves in spring's latest fashions, but our January budgets are barely supporting our iced caramel macchiato habit.

While we are definitely over sale season, there are a few bits out there that are actually really on-trend for the new season – but with a red tag attached. 

Here are a few of our favourite finds from the high street. 

1. Zara

Blouse, €19.99; Mesh dress, €17.99.

Zara just dropped its spring collection, but its sale section is still going strong. Thanks to Zara's fashion-forward selection, many of the sale pieces are currently on-trend for spring.

Ruffles are having a prolonged moment, and this striped work shirt is ideal for sprucing up a work wardrobe after the dull pullovers of winter.

Mesh and tulle are also huge, and throwing this mesh tunic over jeans and a T-shirt for shopping, or over an LBD for night will snag a majorly high style score. 

 

2. ASOS

Pink dress, €39.33;  Pointed loafers, €23.33.

ASOS, the king of online sales, is still slashing its prices with a whopping 70 percent off.

Pink shades were seen storming down major designer catwalks like Balenciaga, Kenzo, Oscar de la Renta, Bottega Veneta and Valentino, making punchy pink the most fashion-forward spring shade.

Gucci also made loafers the most stylish shoe style, and a pointed toe adds a unique touch to a well-worn concept. 

 

3. Topshop

Backpack €34.99; Mesh top €34.99.

Backpacks are still going strong throughout spring, and this floral and scorpion-adorned, double-zip piece looks achingly designer – but, luckily, it's actually from Topshop. 

A new year signifies new beginnings, so whether your resolution is to study harder or hit the gym, you can cram all your books or workout essentials into this roomy leather carry-all.

 

4. H&M

Ruffled blouse, €14.99; Ring clasp bag €19.99.

H&M has also just unveiled its new spring line, but some of its sale pieces are just as covetable.

As we've already mentioned, ruffles are here to stay for spring, and this carmine-coloured blouse is ticking all the boxes.

Been obsessed with the Chloe Faye bag? This H&M dupe is currently on sale.

We'll fight you for the last one!

There are few things more exciting than the January sales, and the prospect of snapping up a bargain is too good to resist.

However, we've officially reached our limit with the sales frenzy, and we're ready to move on to the new season of style.

Our January budgets are still stretched pretty tight, so we're looking forward to the end of the month when the real shopping can begin. 

Mini backpack, €39.95, Frilled shirt €39.95

High street hot spot Zara has just launched their new collection, and, in typical Zara style, it's a medley of on trend accessories and work-to-bar style staples.

Zara hasn't ventured too far out of it's preferred minimalist colour scheme, omitting the typical punchy and proud summer shades in favour of muted creams and greys.

 Waxed jeans €39.95, Faux fur bag €39.95

The collection seems to be well acquainted with the phrase "the devil's in the details," as the muted hues play homage to details like frilled sleeves, lace trim and intricate embroidery. 

Adopting some of the catwalks biggest trends, the high street store is serving up some waxed, leather look jeans, perfect for channelling Kate Moss cool. 

Clash textures with a faux fur cross body bag for some statement style. 

 Suede biker jacket €59.95, Frilled dress €49.95

Biker jackets are the perfect remedy to a winter of heavy boyfriend coats and puffa jackets. 

The easy, throw-on-with-anything piece might be new season, but it's still a steal at €59.95. 

 Jumper €29.95, Embroidered boots €69.95

Green is officially Pantone's colour of 2017, so what better way to jump into a new year of resolutely impeccable style choices than with an evergreen, oversized jumper.

Embroidery is still going strong, after being carried into this season stitched on everything from boots, bags and shirt lapels. 

Leather skirt €29.95, Embroidered shirt €39.95

This leather and lace skirt is a true trophy piece. Balance out the edgy look with a slouchy jumper and tights, or pay homage to the 80s with a power blouse.

Embroidered shirts are still going strong, and adding a frill detail gives a folk touch that can soften up even the harshest of leather trousers and distressed jeans. 

The end of the month can't come quickly enough!

Grace and Frankie delighted our screens last year as Netflix debuted its first season – which had us absolutely hooked.

The two women found their lives were turned upside down when both of their husbands revealed they were gay and ran away with each.

But the two ladies, (despite how different the are) stuck together to make sure they made the most out of their lives.

With so much drama from season one, we can't wait to see what is in store for Grace and Frankie in season two, debuting on May 6.

Watch the trailer here, it already has us hooked (again).

Earlier this week, I. Marlene King had an interview with Variety in which she said, "I think that this story when we're back will end next year at the end of season seven."

The writer then asked, "So you definitely want it to end at the end of season seven, and don't want it to go beyond that?" and Marlene said, "Correct."

So, naturally, everyone lost their mind because they thought PLL was ending. #Standard.

BUT NOW, Marlene has taken to Twitter to announce that she was misinterpreted and PLL will NOT end after season seven.

"What I said was 'This Uber A story that starts on January 12 will end when season 7 ends,'" she wrote on Twitter. "I did not say PLL will end. Just sayin 4 real." 

This is getting more complicated than A's creepy texts!

Pretty Little Liars is by far one of our favourite TV shows at the moment, and we just LOVE trying to pick up on the hints and clues along the way. 

A new poster for the show has just been dropped on the Pretty Little Liars Twitter account and we are totally freaking out because it's dropping hints left, right and centre.

It shows Aria, Emily, Hanna, Ali and Spencer donning all-black outfits and dark shades as they walk through a cemetery carrying a CASKET. 

Who did they kill?!

The fact that the liars are carrying a casket seems to imply the possibility that there's going to be another death in the new season. Which isn't anything new considering at least two people die every season.

But the tagline of the poster – "Are you strong enough to carry your secrets?" – makes it feel super personal to the girls and maybe their secrets are being carried in that coffin. Hmm. 

Earlier this month, another poster was revealed on the PLL Twitter account and it shows the liars placed beside a car… that's filled with dirt. 

Are they burying their secrets or burying the person that's in that coffin? 

So many questions! January 12 can't come quick enough!

Yes, they made a HUGE deal of America’s Next Top Model coming to an end during the year, but now it has been reported that it might not be the end of the TV show after all.

ANTM is trying to find a new home for the 23rd series, meaning that the show won’t be ending at all, just moving to a new channel.

It was the first show aired on The CW in 2006, but executive producer, Ken Mok is reportedly pitching a new instalment of ANTM around to various networks and TV streaming sites, like Amazon, Hulu and Netflix, according to Deadline.

Which is unsurprising, considering that the series has done particularly well in repeat and on-demand websites over the past few years.

And even better news, it is reported that Tyra will still play a major part on the new show. You haven’t seen the end of her smize just yet!

We can't really believe it's the end of August already. #supersadsies.

But as one month ends, another month of new fashion starts. And today, we searched our favourite high-street stores to find the best trends for you to grab before going back to college.

So if you want to up your wardrobe game, SHEmazing! has a few key trends to try to nail for your first-week-of-college outfits:

 

Button-down skirts

It seems the button-down, A-line skirts are here to stay for the next season. As the Seventies trend was HUGE over summer, it's going to stick around for A/W. Give denim or suede a go and you're sure to be on top of the style game when classes start back.

 

Shirt dresses

Shirt dresses are so simple and elegant – as well as super easy to just throw on for your 9am lecture. Chloé and Vivienne Westwood rocked the catwalk with these simple pieces but you are able to get great look-a-likes on the High Street.

 

Boho

The boho babe trend is back for autumn 2015 but this time round, the look has a much darker feel to it. Go for loose silhouettes and layers of moody autumnal colours to be right on trend. 

 

Fluffy

Fluffy bags, coats, gilets and shoes were a major hit on the runway for next season. So if you want to be warm, snuggly and stylish this semester – go for these cute pieces.

Get ready to splurge next season!

We just arrived back from Harvey Nichols' press presentation where we discovered ALL the exciting new trends and brands for the forthcoming season. 

We were greeted by the Style Concierge of the store with tasty cakes and drinks to snack on (we obvs just couldn't say no). 

Anita Barr, fashion buying director at Harvey Nichols, presented the trends for A/W with gorgeous Dublin model Yomiko Chen showcasing the looks in Dundrum Town Centre. 

Anita joined HN in April and it's clear that she has big dreams for the major fashion house. 

She brought us through a comprehensive presentation about all the new trends and brands that will be entering the store over the next few months – and they are ALL right on the money. 

The key trends included Studio 54 which was full of decadent and luxurious pieces from brands such as Finders Keepers, Galvan and Alice + Olivia. 

Victoriana, the next key trend, is inspired by modern gothic looks from Temperly and Talbot Runhoff. Expect to see a lot of lace and velvet pieces in the gorgeous collections. 

Rebel Rebel was our favourite trend from the afternoon, with a mix of grunge and rock inspired looks. Isabel Marant, DKNY and Belstaff will be your go-to brands if you want to achieve the adventurous look. 

There will be an array of new clothing and accessories brands entering the Dublin store next season too; Noir Sachin & Babi, Hugo Boss, Crea Concept, Canada Goose and Kenzo will fill the shops floors. 

Meanwhile, hitting UK stores next month are Adeam, Mugler, Fendi, Mr & Mrs and Saflyaa – which Gwyneth Palthrow is a huge fan of. But why are we telling you about the new UK brands? Because you can get them here too. Hurrah!

With Harvey Nicks' new Click and Collect service you can order a piece from any British store and collect it in Dundrum. Handy!

To complement all the changes throughout the stores in Ireland and Britain, Harvey Nichols is also launching a Style Academy in October – an exclusive training programme for store sales advisors.

Harvey Nichols Dublin director Kenny Robertson also said: “Harvey Nichols is looking forward to celebrating ten years in Ireland this October. 

"This autumn we are very excited to promote the full range of brands and services available in-store and introducing Style Academy matching exceptional service with styling expertise offering customers the ultimate shopping experience.”

We are really looking forward to all new brands, trends and expertise that will be hitting the store in the next few months. 

We even have our eyes on a few piece already!

Get ready for amazing fashion this season!

We just arrived back from the House Of Fraser AW 2015 press preview… and yes, the new season stock is to-die-for. 

The event was held in The Dean hotel in Dublin and was decorated beautifully with gold graphics and pink flowers.

We were welcomed by a number of HoF folk in-the-know, and they happily took us through forthcoming season and what to expect.

Between yummy shortbread biscuits (yes!) and a fruit juice punch (hurrah!), the afternoon got us totally excited for autumn – and what we'll be wearing during the new season.

Labels such as Biba, Therapy, Label Lab and MaxMara Weekend will all be making a comeback with the new stock due in stores mid-September. 

In fact, expect to see the department store full of muted tones from grey to burgundy and green to black. 

MaxMara Weekend is going a bit brighter this AW with cream and white hitting its main stage. But fear not, if you want to be bright for Christmas, Biba and Label Lab are both bringing back colourful sequins with a bang. 

Their home wares and handbags are already in stock (run!). With animal print, leather and fur on offer, you'll basically turn heads on the street.

 

Here are a few snaps of our absolute favourties… Happy shopping!
