Ah, late June. My favourite time of the year. The weather is hotting up and the the sales are all going into further reductions. Just this morning, Selfridges reduced their sale prices even further. While they aren’t advertising a specific percentage off, unlike Harvey Nichols who are now at 60% off, there are some great savings to be had. I’ve trawled through the sale and put together the hottest pieces that you need to snap up now before they’re gone.
- Chinti & Parker pom pom cashmere sweater – £75 from £350Snapping up knitwear in the summer sales can be a very savvy investment, particularly if you’re buying premium wool like cashmere at a huge discount. Pom poms are one of the biggest micro trends and sure to continue into the autumn/winter season.
- Alexander McQueen ruffled silk-crepe maxi skirt – £295 from £1,995At a whopping 85% off, this Alexander McQueen skirt is a beautiful bargain. Even at the biannual sample sale, you’d be hard pressed to find pieces that were 85% off and in pristine condition. A no-brainer for black tie events, I would also dress it down with a plain tee and simple heels.
- Self Portrait off white knit midi dress – £50 from £295Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that Self Portrait is one of the most covetable brands on the planet. Though best known for their lace-detailed occasion dresses, their daywear is also top notch. The off-the-shoulder trend is set to carry over into autumn/winter so this is a very savvy sale buy.
- Stella McCartney faux fur gilet – £150 from £965Ideal for layering up in the colder months with the added benefit of being cruelty-free, I’m utterly obsessed with this gilet. I haven’t found many decent faux fur iterations of the classic fur gilet in my travels, let alone that looks so luxe. Also available in a cream colour.
- True Religion Halle motorcycle jeans – £50 from £270I can’t possibly do a sale bargain round up without including a pair of jeans, premium denim is such a great investment as it lasts years. I love the super sexy skinny silhouette of these jeans, the slightly cropped length and the ankle zips.
