What to look for in the end of summer sales
Published 2 September 2015
With the fashion world preparing for autumn, why not get one step ahead of the game by becoming a savvy sales shopper?
We know that the summer is still in full swing (we’re only just into September, after all) but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start to prepare yourself for the autumn months by shopping in the summer sales. Yes, that’s right you did hear us correctly, the end of summer sales can be a great place to pick up a few autumnal bargains – and this blog is full of them!*
Investing in knitwear for the autumn months is nothing ground-breaking – but why mess up a good thing, right? So this season, look for chunky and textured knits in the summer sales, a little like these:
Look 1: Step into autumn, with this blush pink light-weight knit from H&M. At just £5 (reduced from £14.99), this jumper is the ideal basic to dress up or down and could even make a staple piece for the workplace.
Look 2: Textured, design knits like this one from H&M are going to be everywhere come September, so why not get one step ahead of the fashion pack and nab this one for a cool £10!
Look 3: Flick through the nearest glossy magazine, and we guarantee you’ll see this next colour in there. Burnt orange is the colour of the autumn/winter season, so why not invest in a jumper like this one from New Look to fully embrace it!
Think floral, retro prints and you’ll be onto a winner this autumn.
Look 1: Off-the-shoulder (check!), vintage pattern (check!), style in abundance (double check!) – what more could a girl ask for? A price tag of £20, maybe? Well this dress from H&M has it all!
Look 2: No matter your figure, a bell-shaped dress is sure to flatter you, so why not invest in something like this one from H&M? At half price, this dress won’t break the bank at £15!
No matter the shade, camel is a classic neutral that you should try to get your hands on for next season.
Look 1: Make sure you look the part in work this autumn, by investing in these lightweight trousers from H&M. But you’d better be quick if you like what you see, as at only £12 these trousers are bound to go quickly!
Look 2: Every woman needs a dress in their wardrobe that they can just throw stick on – and this shirt dress from H&M is one of them. Pair with a chunky cardigan or jumper in the winter alongside a pair of black boots for a classic look. Not bad for £10!
Look 3: You can’t really go wrong with a high-waisted skirt, especially not one that’s reduced down to £10 from £19.99. So why not pick up this light beige skirt the next time you’re in H&M?
Now you know what fashion trends are coming up this autumn, you can prepare yourself a wish list for the summer sales – just remember once you set yourself a budget, try to stick to it. Make sure to check back in with us next week for more budget-friendly fashion!
