It is all too easy to fall into the trap of buying clothes that are really only suited to one time of the year, i.e. Christmas and the party season. Shops are packed full of discounted sparkly jumpers and dresses that although beautiful are not much good if they end up languishing at the back of the wardrobe for most of the year, constantly vying for your attention with their festive glitter but looking so out-of-place in Spring and even Autumn.
I’m trying to keep a sensible hat on this year. Stick to buying items that I need in my wardrobe or as my friend Jess suggests in her sale pick post, replacing items that are now worn out. By choosing items that can be layered for cold weather or teamed with different accessories to suit the time of year I’ll end up wearing them more and really getting my money’s worth.
Mango – was £34.99 now £24.99
This striped jumper from Mango can be worn with a denim shirt or vest to keep warm in the winter or added to shorts in the summer for a nautical look on cooler evenings.
Warehouse was £40.00 now £15.00
For layering this utility shirt is sheer so can be worn as one of several layers with a chunky knit or for Spring and Summer with cigarette pants.
Worn with the right accessories this dress can be perfect for dazzling evenings out and parties as well as for warm nights out sans tights or stockings.
Anthropologie was £98.00 now £49.95
Team with cute blouse with a warm cardi for now and bare your arms in the warmer weather.
ASOS was £130.00 now £78.00
This Pepe Jeans Tailored Tweed Jacket would be a great addition to any wardrobe. Suitable for both casual and smarter outfits.
Has anyone else spotted any other sale items that would be able to be worn all year round?
