Just about everyone has gone on sale this week. I’m not sure if this is a good or a bad thing… seeing as it makes buying new clothes all the more tempting when I’m trying to live on less. Nevertheless here are my picks of the sale, pieces that will hopefully last you for seasons to come.
This dress is the kind of thing that will easily last through to summer. It’s cute, practical and in a colour that can easily stand on its own. I love pale hues but being a rather pale hue myself I find I have to wear those colours with black tights and a jacket. A lipstick red like this would be perfect in summer with tan sandals and a clutch, no colour-blocking needed.
A full skirt is always a practical purchase for summer. This lace version comes with a matching short sleeve shirt which is super cute. Together they have a matchy-matchy feel (in a good way), or wear the skirt with a simple white tee and chunky necklace.
OK I know these are a bit extreme, but skorts, culottes and wide-leg pants are going to be a thing next summer. If they’re cut right they can be great for accentuating waists and disguising thighs. Think of them with a tucked in tank and loafers.
It’s sheer, its silk and it’s pretty. Need I say more.
