This weeks blog is a short one due to work commitments, but I thought I’d share with you some of my Summer Sale Picks from the High Street. I’ve done a sweep of the sales and found these lovely pieces.
When it comes to sale items I stick to a set of rules
Stylissimo Sales Rules
1) Does it go with more than one item in my wardrobe? Answer should be yes!
2) Will I have to buy something else to go with it to make it into an outfit? Answer should be No!
3) Do I REALLY need it? Answer should be Yes!
4) Is it a timeless piece/repeating trend ? Answer should be Yes!
5) Is it within my colour palette that suits me? Answer should be Yes!
6) Is it a style that suits my shape? Answer should be Yes!
If you follow these rules you shouldn’t end up with any sale purchases still hanging in your wardrobe with the tags on! But many of us are still tempted by the allure of saving money, only for it to cost us in the long run as we never wear them.
As the answers to my rules are individual to you I’ve based my sale picks on whether they are basics/classic pieces/repeating trends.
First up this Neautral shirt dress will suit many colour palettes, can be worn with a multitude of other colours to create an outfit and the shirt dress is a classic piece to have in your wardrobe.
Warehouse Shirt Dress reduced from £48 to £30
This Oasis Playsuit is reduced from £40 to £20, monochrome and florals are timeless trends so grab this for your holls now and you’ll wear it again next year I’m certain of it.
A classic pair of black strappy heels you will wear again and again, every girls wardrobe should have a pair.
Zara Black Heels reduced from £49.99 to £39.99
If you’ve read my blogs before you know that I swear by a good fitting jumpsuit, I have them for formal and casual occasions and a black one is now becoming like the new version of the Little Black Dress. This one from Maje (a brand brought to my attention due to my Wimbeldon style observations) is a classic halter neck shape and has 50% off.
Maje Catsuit save 50% now £130
If you still have a wedding to go to and in need of a dress, I saw this beautiful Reiss dress on a personal shop appointment with a client recently. A pretty floral shift dress ticks both the repeating trend and classic shape dress boxes. The fabric is gorgeous and looks amazing on.
Reiss floral shift dress reduced from £195 to £135
Finally if you are adding the finishing touches to a summer wedding outfit, these sandals from Kurt Geiger are available in Nude and Silver, reduced from £100 to £69, both colours are classic and will work with a multitude of coloured outfits.
I hope you like my Summer Sale Picks, there are some great bargains to be had. There may even be some further reductions but they won’t be around for long. The high street seemed to go into sale a little early this year hinting that the Autumn Winter collections will hit sooner too, so if your holidays are later in the season, say August/September, don’t leave it till then to buy your holiday clothes as it is likely you’ll not find very much.
