Best Of The Sales – Shopping Tips
Sale season is in full force and if you know what to look for, the sales are a great time to pick out anything from key wardrobe staples to fun pieces that you didn’t want to commit to when they were listed at full price. Our stylists are continuously out and about and have put together a list of their favourite sale items from various retailers throughout London and online.
“I always recommend shopping in the sales with a clear plan. Go out with an idea of what you want; otherwise you’ll get caught up in the bargain bin and will spend way more than you intended to on the wrong things” – Elin, CEO
Style Doctors SALE Edit
As our stylists spend each and every day in the shops, they are best placed to find the must-have sale items to buy now. If you are a regular follower of our blog posts, you’ll know that at Style Doctors we never recommend anything that we haven’t seen in person or on a body. With that in mind, stylists Ellen and Polina tried-on some of their top sale pieces.
Solid Wardrobe Staples
A loose sleeve with lace doily details on this white linen top add a feminine and romantic flair to an otherwise simple blouse. The eyelet ruffle details of the blouse give the top more dimension and an illusion of a looser silhouette which pairs well with the fitted gingham skirt. The bargain £10 orange sandals complete the look by giving the monochromatic look a pop of colour.
Looking for classics such as monochrome items (which are always on trend), classic pieces such as a white blouse and fun shoes are always a good idea during the sales.
Yellow Belted Jumpsuit
Is there a certain trendy style that you have been wanting to try but have been scared to invest in? Sale season is the perfect time to erase the fear of trying a new trend, as you can be adventurous without investing too much.
Don’t invest too much in ‘of the moment’ items as these won’t be worn often and will be used sporadically.
We paired this yellow jumpsuit chunky trainers that incorporate the yellow from the jumpsuit for a stylish and comfortable day look.
Creative Work Style
Here we have featured an elevated daytime look with a silk patterned dress, a blazer, and white strappy heels all from Topshop. This silk dress imitates the look of various silk scarves combined together to create a designer look (another great sale find!) Our stylists chose to add a blazer to the dress to cover up the shoulders but it also looks great without! The heel provides a nice height to help balance the long length of the dress.
“Look for items that fall into 2 categories: The on-trend item that wasn’t quite worth paying full price for and Staple Items such as biker jackets and summer sandals that work well with everything” – Ellen, Stylist
Sale season won’t last forever, so be sure to visit the stores before the sales are over. If you feel overwhelmed by the sight of a sale bin, contact one of our expert stylists and we would be happy to guide you through the racks and bins of endless sales.
