Sale buying depends very much on your style personality (see Step one of Effortless style). If you are the dramatic kind you will want to be up there with the latest trends, always on the look out for the item of the moment. You can still ‘sale shop’! On my TRENDS page I have written an article indicating the winter2012 styles that will continue into Spring. Take a look , be a little penny conscious and browse the sale rails.
Spring/Summer 2013 Chanel is all about wind turbines, falling pollen and solar panels (seemingly). I get it. Cast your eyes over their catwalk show.
I found this monochrome gilet by Mint Velvet, a snip at £79. Monochrome is a definite up and coming trend so keep your eyes peeled. For some reason this Mango jacket (£49 in sale) reminds me of the Chanel mood and could easily take you through the Spring (and summer if you are with me in the North!).
Dior featured black tuxedo jackets dressed up with a single scarf knotted at the neck.
For the more ‘Classics’ among you that love a ‘good coat’ and a cashmere sweater that will last I have found the following. Firstly, a beautiful olive green wool coat by Windsmoor, in the sale at £129! The style will not date and would be terrific for those with a rectangular shape, so very elegant.. Of course, don’t forget the Brora sale for beautiful subtle shades in cashmere. All Saints have some fabulous items in the sale. Take for instance, this gorgeous classic cape with antique brass features and beautiful bound edges. It has been reduced from £250 to £125. I think this subtle boiled wool cape from East at £79 also takes some beating. It is perfect for ladies that fall into the ‘round’ category.
Leather and embellished items will always be worth buying. For the ‘creative dressers’ amongst you what about this stunning coat from East? Or this purple dress coat from C&C, totally creative at £59.90. I can imagine Helena Bonham Carter wearing this. I love it.
Romantics can certainly celebrate the sales by seeking out all of the aut/winter outerwear in pastel shades; pastel coats are still alive and well for the Spring. I love this pinky/beige jacket in the Oasis sale. The drapes are very romantic. Or what about this pastel coat from Warehouse £120?
I could go on and on, delighting in what the January saleshave to offer but I guess enough is enough! I am going to search around for Stripes now.
