Like any savy thrifter, I start autumn and winter shopping during the summer sales. “But it’s not in trend…that’s last year’s stuff…” you might say with scorn; but any good stylist will know, there are always seasonal staples that will never go off trend for years to come.
This summer I bagged these timeless pieces for absolute bargains:
Maroon puffer jacket- MANGO £17.99
I’ve wanted a ‘puffer’ jacket for a while, but something that doesn’t make me look too puffy. I was so happy to find this jacket on sale, especially in this colour. it’s very light, warm and incredibly soft to touch!
Tan Chelsea boots – NEXT £30.00
I’ve wanted a brogue looking pair for a while, and struggle to find ankle boots that don’t make my ankles look too chunky. These slip on very easily, with a great rubber sole (perfect for icy days) and fairly roomy for the round toe. Glad I grabbed these!
Fiorelli- sadie cross body bag – tan £25.00
My love for Fiorelli continues all through the seasons, and I’ve loved their ‘Sadie’ bag so much, I bought two! I wanted a new cross over for the season and preferred the tan over their orange version. Pretty proud of bagging this one!
Khaki long cardigan – Zara – £9.99
Love love love this cardigan from Zara. I was almost shocked at the price and didn’t hesitate to bag it! It’s light and flowy and the perfect subtle statement to an everyday look!
And last but not least accessorise with Rose Gold Hair Tie Bracelet from BlueMagpie.london, £6.45!
Perfect for keeping my wrist free, hairband in one place, and accessorising my look, I can’t live a day without one; and in rose gold for that subtle Autumn glam!
Of course, you don’t want to bag just winter clothing especially since you won’t be wearing it yet, but it’s a great time to start selecting pieces that you feel confident in, and are timeless classics.
Towards the end of the summer a lot of summer styles drop into the sales too, and it’s great to bag a bargain for next year! My last minute summer haul were two pairs of light blue jeans, one skinny £12.00 and one boyfriend fit for £8.00 from Next!
I’ll see you next at the winter sales, bagging next year’s beach wear!
