If you’re feeling the pinch after Christmas, but can’t resist a little January treat, you’ll be pleased to know that the sales are still going strong. Whether you’re an online shopper or willing to brave the crowds, check out our picks of the hottest bargains to be had on the high street and beyond…
The online fashion emporium always has some sort of sale on the go, but their current offerings have been slashed by up to 70%, and there’s plenty of new season styles to choose from. With over 4000 dresses for the ladies and 2000 men’s tees alone, it can be a time consuming process rifling through the virtual rails, but the filters are a handy tool if you have an idea of what you’re looking for. Our picks? The Great Gatsby trend is set to be huge for both sexes this spring/summer, so guys, think preppy, think dandy, and you’re just about there. This G-Star blazer hits the nail on the head and is now somewhat more wallet-friendly at £143 (previously £220).
Girls, embrace your inner Carey Mulligan in this black beaded flapper dress from Ted Baker, a surefire party hit. It might still come in at £129, but that’s a £70 saving on this frock’s original £199 price tag, and every girl needs a go-to LBD. Keep an eye out for further markdowns if you really can’t bear to part with your cash- discounts on unsold items generally increase in mid-January.
The eternal student favourite has a great selection online, but it’s worth noting that your local branch might have different stock to the website, or may have slashed their prices even further. The perfect place to stock up on statement tees, this Catgirl option has been reduced from £30 to £10 online, but is selling for just a fiver in Glasgow’s Buchanan Street Store. Ka-ching!
For ladies it’s all about the kicks; with an amazing selection of footwear from just £10 it would be rude not to indulge. These two-tone high tops are oh so Fresh Prince, and totally on-trend for this season’s nineties revival.
If you fancy a little designer/high street collab on the cheap, Topshop is your girl. There’s plenty of leftover J.W. Anderson now going for less than half price, and these tortoise print jeans are just too cute to resist!
Topman’s accessory department is stacked full of bargains, but our favourite is this polka dot rucksack- the perfect hands-free hand luggage for that lads holiday.The best bit about our sale favourites?
