Ready to shop till you drop? Below are the best fashion and beauty buys we’re loving this week. You’ll have to move fast though, as something tells us these won’t be around for long.

H&M Cat-Eye Sunglasses

With warmer weather (hopefully) on the way, we’ve been on the hunt for the perfect shades to keep us looking stylish in spring, summer and beyond. This season, cat-eye shapes are dominating, with dramatic, larger-than-life styles proving popular with shoppers. That’s why when we spotted this pair from H&M, £9.99 here, we were instantly sold.

Oasis Check Puff Sleeve Belted Midi Dress

If you’re splashing out on a statement dress this season, make sure it’s something you can get plenty of wear out of. This playful printed number with puffed sleeves and matching belt will take you from desk to dinner. Alternatively, style with strappy heels and a micro bag for a dreamy wedding guest look. Available in sizes 6 through 18, it’s all yours for £71.20 here.

W7 Very Vegan Garden Party Pressed Pigments Palette

Giant eyeshadow palette filled with loads of shades are fine for when you’re at home, but what if you need to top up on the go? With six universally-flattering shimmer and matte shades for day and night, this pocket-sized palette is a handbag essential – and it’s an absolute bargain at just £4.95 here.

Zara Poplin Shirt

For those on the hunt for the perfect spring shirt, we think we’ve found it here for just £22.99 here. From the oversized collar to the pink stripes, what’s not to love? For an office-worthy look, pair with your favourite jeans and loafers – and if you’re heading off on your holidays, wear it unbuttoned and chuck over swimwear to look stylish around the pool.

Marks & Spencer Knot Flat Mules

Dressing for comfort doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style and these fancy flats, £25 here, prove just that. If you’re looking to introduce colour into your wardrobe this spring, start by opting for bright, bold footwear and slowly work your way up. Not only are these pink mules perfectly on-trend, but they’re great for chucking on with dresses, jeans – anything, really.

Furla Meraviglia Tote

Whilst the iconic Loewe basket bag dominated last summer, this year, we suggest standing out from the crowd with this brightly-coloured shopper, £255 here. A must-have accessory for beach days, this designer bag features spacious compartments – perfect for storing all your belongings inside.

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Eau & Magnolia Eau de Toilette

If you fancy a fresh new scent for spring, this velvety floral launch by Issey Miyake, from £65 here, should be at the top of your shopping list. The fragrance contains notes of rose, sparkling bergamot, musk and sandalwood, with a heart described as “a floral bouquet bursting with water”r

Orelia Satellite Chain Initial Necklace

Accessories are the best way to make your look your own, so it’s no surprise personalised jewellery is trending right now. From lockets and nameplates to birthstone designs, there’s heaps of options to pick from, but we’re loving this initial necklace, which retails at £18 here.

Selfless by Hyram Peptide Q10 & Ginger Daily Defense

If there’s anyone we’d take skincare tips from it’s influencer Hyram Yarbro. Like many beauty fans, we’ve been stalking his TikTok for recommendations for years, and now he’s launched his very own range, we need everything! This week, we’re adding this lightweight serum, £14 here, to our regime. It’s packed with antioxidants that work together to not only protect skin from daily stressors but also encourage a healthy, glowing complexion. What more could you want?

Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Overnight Retinoid Cream

Looking for an age-defying face cream that gets to work overnight? Infused with melatonin and a retinoid, this nourishing formula, £25 here, is a great gentle way to use retinol.

Other standout ingredients include mushrooms, which hydrate the skin and calm signs of puffiness, while quinoa encourages collagen production to plump up fine lines. This lightweight formula absorbs quickly into the skin.
