Whether you love or loathe sales shopping, one thing's for sure: we all love a bargain. But since we know that battling your way through the sales racks isn't for everyone, we've picked out some of our top treasures to see you out of lockdown and into the summer in style – and some are up to 60% off!
2021 is all about romantic styles, from puff sleeves to swishy skirts, and the Inga dress by Stine Goya has it all. We love the pale pistachio tone that's perfect for warm weather, but will see you well into the colder months, too. If you prefer something brighter, the Begonia dress by Gestuz is sure to turn heads for all the right reasons.
There's more to summer tops than meets the eye. In fact, dressing for summer isn't just about throwing on the nearest short-sleeved style you can find, but rather selecting the perfect layer that suits both the weather and your plans. For casual evenings, we love a good, simple cami top like American Vintage's Fakobay, that comes in black and white, worn with a statement skirt (like the Stine Goya Maura Midi below).
For work, opt for light fabrics with simple, elegant details that can be paired with anything from pinstripe trousers to jeans or a floaty skirt – the gorgeous Judy embroidered blouse by Sessun ticks all the boxes for smart, sophisticated summer style. Then, when it's time to make more of a statement, the Polka Vegas Shirt from YMC brings a healthy dose of personality to your off-duty wardrobe. Do you dare to pair it with the matching pants?
Our hottest pick to be seen in this summer is the Maura Midi by Stine Goya. The striking pink, the luxurious fabric, and the perfect statement shape make it the ideal style for romantic evenings, hot holiday dressing, or just a laid-back stroll around the city – after a year in sweatpants, why not?
For something smarter, Sessun's drawstring pinstripe trousers blur the lines between formal trousers and comfy sweats. Trust us on this one: the drawstring waistband is the future of women's pants. And speaking of the future – why not use sale season as an opportunity to ditch the restrictive skinnies and invest in a super-stylish pair of wide leg jeans? We're loving the stone-wash grey on this pair by American Vintage.
We've said it before and we've said it again: this summer, we're making statements. And of course that doesn't end at our feet. For on-the-go days, a blue Saucony trainer provides the perfect level of eye-catching comfort. And when it comes to the evening, you'll never feel more like a princess (or Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz) than in a pair of pink glitter Stine Goya sling-backs.
See? Sales shopping doesn't have to be stressful after all.
