The Sale Edit
Posted on June 14th, 2018
There’s nothing more satisfying than buying all the loot you’ve had your eye on for the past few months on sale, especially when you know you’re getting a great deal. If you’re anything like me then paying full price for anything just doesn’t cut the mustard. I always like to have a game plan and make a list of everything that I’m after; this limits impulse purchases that are solely purchased because of a markdown (we’ve all been there). Some websites don’t offer return policies so it’s important to know exactly what you’re after, your correct size and really ask yourself if it deserves a place in your closet.
Harvey Nichols’ online sale is a dark horse. Their selection of Isabel Marant pieces currently have the largest markdown of any other online store. You can find beautiful styles that are already 50% off which a pretty great selection. This includes a beautiful floral print skirt that I have in the maxi length that has been one of my star purchases of the summer.
Net-a-Porter’s first markdown is never ideal with big brands so I tend to stick with pieces I know will be tricky to find elsewhere. They have the best selection of Ganni, Rixo, HVN (can we have a moment to appreciate how wonderful this brand is), Carmen March and Petar Petrov. Fill your up your favourites with pieces from The Row, Saint Laurent, Chloe and Isabel Marant in preparation for the next markdown.
Similar to Net-a-Porter, the Matches sale is a great place to grab lesser-known brands. Look out for past season Vita Kin, great summer coverups and basics. Beware that there is a lot of old stock mixed into the sale so it definitely takes a little sifting.
Browns has some killer deals right now. Along with some fantastic pieces which are between 40%-50% off (think Vetements, Heron Preston, Off-White) there’s a stellar collection of Sies Marjan silk numbers as well as a Saint Laurent tuxedo jacket (linked below) at a whopping 50% off – jump on this one. This could possibly be one of my favourite sale sites right now.
Let’s not forget Moda Operandi. They’re currently having up to 70% off and there are a plethora of goodies left. Gowns from Elie Saab, Marchesa and Delpozo are rife as well as some show stopping cocktail dresses. If you’ve got a wedding or an event in the next few months you are planning on making an entrance then this is your opportunity to find the show stopping dress to wear.
