The summer sales are here, already. It seems rather early but who are we to quibble about bargain pieces to update our wardrobes.
We’ve scoured all of your favourite high street stores and found the best buys, to save you the hassle. Gone are the days of trawling the rails at the Topshop sale, elbowing fellow shoppers aside for the last pair of loafers in a size 5. Now, you can shop from the comfort of your own home, or office in a spare lunch break.
There are two things we like to look for in the sales; the pieces we’ve been eyeing up during the season and couldn’t quite justify buying, and the investment pieces we’ll be wearing for years to come.
This summer, we’re obsessed with the & Other Stories sale. It’s always pretty impressive, with great reductions, but we can’t get enough of the basic t-shirts, tailored trousers and loafers in mix-and-match colours perfect for that dream capsule wardrobe.
Miss Selfridge’s spring/summer collection was one of our go-tos for the 70s trend, with suede shorts and skirts – and they’ve all gone into the sale.
Having trouble justifying a sale haul? Join the club. Though the outgoings when the sales drop can be eye-watering, just think how much money you’re saving if you shop wisely.
Though the Matches and Net-a-Porter sales are calling, we’ve kept our trawling strictly to the high street. Saved up for the sales? They’re the place to go, but there’s no need to see what you’re missing if you haven’t. We like being able to buy a few pieces to update our wardrobe mid-season, when it’s feeling a little flat, without feeling too guilty.
Whatever you’re looking for, whether it’s for your holiday, an occasion, or your work or weekend wardrobes, check out our edit of the best of the summer sales…
