Many retailers have gone out early this season with a selection of winter styles on sale, with new styles being added every week.
How do you make smart selections that will last season after season rather than picking up random selections just because they are on sale?
First of all, I would highly recommend a wardrobe audit with one of our experienced personal stylists.
This prevents you from buying pieces that you already have, allows you to identify the key pieces that are missing from your wardrobe and know that the pieces that you are investing in suit your body shape, colour characteristics, age and personal style.
Here are my top key pieces to look for and some examples that will last season after season, some exact items may be on sale or you can look for similar styles.
Mid Year Sales are the PERFECT time to select a classic jacket at a fraction of the price.
Here are just a few of the cuts and styles that will be beautiful and practical season after season.
Who doesn’t love a trench with its classic and flattering lines?
Look for classic colours.
A puffer jacket doesn’t have to just be practical, it can also be stylish.

A leather jacket is an absolute staple in the wardrobe season after season they are a winner.
You can opt for a lighter more neutral colour if your wardrobe is more feminine/romantic.

This is the perfect time of year to pick up beautiful tops in quality fabrics that look expensive and elevate your look.
Classic black and white tops are an absolute must as you can do so much with them in the wardrobe and easily dress up a look both social and professional occasions.
The absolute same goes for pants! At a minimum, you should stock your wardrobe with dressy pant options including a classic black pair, a perfectly cut pair of jeans or even leather pants.
Knitwear is so varied in quality and you really do get what you pay for… except for at sale time!!
This cashmere blend knit from Witchery is beautiful, and if looked after correctly will last year after year and look polished.
A key tip: be realistic about if you have the patience/time to care for knitwear, if not, best not to invest!
Look for statement pieces that make your heart sing!
Pieces that call to you, that you have to have them!
They can include print if they are timeless, such as leopard or embellishment that you will not tire of season after season.
I hope I have inspired some smart shopping this sale season!
