At SalesGossip we love sharing secrets almost as much as we love shopping, so read on to discover the secret to success at the January sales…
Who doesn’t love a sale? The only worry we constantly hear from shoppers is that they don’t want to be fooled in to buying last season’s styles which are ready to be cast out on the fashion scrap heap. Our secret is to keep an eye on the new season’s emerging trends, then not only will you be one step ahead of the crowd, but you’ll save lots of money too!
Here’s your guide to shopping spring trends in the winter sales… believe it or not, it can be done!
A treasure trove of gold, silver and bronze designs have made the high street sparkle this festive season, but it’s not too late to add some glitz to your wardrobe. Buy metallics now and you’re guaranteed to be wearing them well past New Year’s Eve – you only have to take a look at Giles Deacon’s collection for S/S’12 for proof; it’s an absolute symphony in silver. If you’re after a bargain, try the Topshop sale, where this metallic jacket has been reduced from £65 – £20. Now that’s the type of saving that earns you a gold medal!
The Roaring ’20s:
Filming hasn’t even finished, but the fashion industry is eagerly anticipating Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Ralph Lauren’s S/S ’12 collection is full to the brim with sartorial references to the Jazz Age, from dropped waists to cloche hats. Channel the demure Daisy look with a pretty pink chiffon dress from Wallis, reduced from £65 to just £15! The pastel shades are spot on trend for Spring/Summer. Look out for saccharine shades of candyfloss, lemon-drop, spearmint and palma violet.
Colour Pop Rain Macs:
Let’s face it, living in London we’ve still got months of cold and rain ahead, so there will be plenty of opportunities to wear a new Mac. Burberry are undeniably the masters of the Mac, but have moved away from the classic beige design for S/S’12 – showing a collection of rich tones from green to purple. Hobbs is the place to go for a style steal, with this olive green mac reduced from £119 – £59, so you can save money for a rainy day.
