Amazing Reductions no-one Should Miss

Sales used to be simple: twice a year shops put up big red “sale” signs and prices were reduced. Now it has all got silly, with discounts from early in the season leading many of us to hold off buying. Talk about the retail sector shooting itself in the foot….

But now it’s January and officially Sale Time so it’s the perfect moment to get shopping… for those hero pieces we’ve lusted after all season, for investment pieces or to lay down a stock of wardrobe essentials. And all at substantially discounted prices.

INVESTMENT & HERO PIECES #1 COATS & JACKETS

Sales are the perfect time to pick up high-ticket pieces such as coats and jackets. Although trends come and go, a gorgeous coat is a gorgeous coat, even if we have to style it or accessorise it in a different way in future A/W seasons…

INVESTMENT & HERO PIECES #2

Sales are also a perfect time to pick up other high-ticket pieces such as occasion and partywear; it’s the moment to seek a fabulous dress or outfit that will be perfect for an upcoming special occasion or trip…
