The sales. Is it really the best time to splurge? Probably, but one thing is for sure: With all of the designer high quality basics with up to 70% off, to invest in such pieces is surely a wiser thing to do than to waste it on a truckload of high street items that will not last as long or that you might only wear once in your life.

There are a few guidelines on how not to end up broke after the sales time and I will limit myself to mention a few:

1. Investing rather than just spending.  Invest only in pieces you know you will use often such as basics . As I’ve mentioned before, basics depend pretty much solely on personal style, but there might be a few pieces we all could agree we need such as: a biker jacket, a button-down, a white tee (or also black and grey), skinny jeans, leather pants, boyfriend jeans, a breton top, and the perfect tuxedo blazer. These are all pieces you can wear during any season of the year, so they will surely get a LOT of use.

2. Quality, not quantity. Splurge on one single pair of designer shoes you love instead of buying 10 from Zara. If it’s a pair of ankle boots that you can use all year round, the better.

3. The timelessness factor. Make sure that if you decide to invest on fancy shoes for special ocassions, that they have a timeless design, so that if you don’t get to wear them that often, at least you can wear them in the upcoming years without fear of them being out of style. Strappy heels, lace-up sandals, and sleek minimal mules will work out always.

4. Think neutral shades. Yup. Those colours (or lack thereof) that will never go out of style no matter the season or year. If you are going to spend big time on something, make sure it’s not in a strange colour that might not even match a single item in your wardrobe.

  1. I absolutely love the bomber. I just wish you posted cheaper alternatives to these items. Some of us would never think about spending 200 on one jacket, because we don’t have the money to pay for these things! for example to get a classic white tee you can go to forever 21 and pay 3 for one of those. My favorite shoes are number 3 and 8 the are adorable! I hope my ideas helped!
    Much Love, AnnCates xxxx

    1. Thank you 🙂 All feedback/constructive criticism is always welcome. Yes, I was thinking about doing two of these sale edits, one designer and the other one high street, so expect it soon. Thanks again and I’ll work on it and try to always include cheaper alternatives. 🙂
