Sale: Style Classics
It’s the time of year to snap up a sartorial steal, but be careful: sales and reckless spending go hand in hand. So shop smart and consider investing in 1 of these 5 failsafe pieces that will stand the test of time…
The Black Trouser
Office staple, androgynous evening piece – well-tailored black trousers work for all occasions and transcend any catwalk trend. Cigarette silhouette or cropped flare, make sure you opt for a finish that reflects your own style.
The Tote Bag
Versatile and chic, a buttery leather tote is so much more than mere arm candy. Look for larger sizes that will transport everything from your laptop to running trainers in style, and won’t look out of touch next season.t reflects your own style.
The Leather Jacket
Worn à la Parisienne with Breton stripes, or thrown over a band tee for rock ’n’ roll cool, a leather jacket is the ultimate in insouciant style. We adore the shearling-lined variety, but if you stick to good quality leather and a classic hue, you’ll find one to last you a lifetime.
The Ballerina Flat
Elegant, easy to walk in and beloved by style icons (Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot…); this should be a no-brainer. And it’s a shoe reinterpreted seasonally with varying levels of embellishment and eccentricity, so whether you’re drawn to an ankle strap or stud detailing, the options are endless.
The Chunky Knit
So long as there is winter, a chic, oversized sweater will never go out of style. In fact, the perfect piece will have you wishing for chilly weather! Opt for merino wool or cashmere styles and remember to store flat and dry until the next chilly spell.
