Here at Stylist we love a good sale, but sometimes just the thought of going from store to store and fighting our way through hordes of people to get to the rails leaves us exhausted. So, in the interests of keeping your stress levels at a post-Christmas low, here's our essential guide to the best sales and a sample of the best steals to be had.
Shoes & Accessories
The highstreet shoe haven launched its sale on the 24 December. Our top picks include the disco-tastic sparkly That Friday Feeling heels (were £79, now £40), their Kahoona Chelsea boots (were £82, now £50), and some Krystal Cuff bejewelled suede shoe boots (were £105, now £65).
If you'd prefer a designer pair of shoes for less, check out the Jimmy Choo sale which begins today. They also have some pretty amazing accessories marked down, including a super-soft leather studded handbag with fun star shaped studs (was £995, now £696.50).
The luxury retailer's sale started online on Christmas Day and in-store on Boxing Day. Highlights include their dresses section, with labels including Dannii Minogue's Project D, Joseph and Temperley.
Of all the lovely things to be had in the Stella McCartney sale, our absolute favourite is the black and camel striped Lewis top (was 735, now £367.50).
The boutique's sale runs until the end of January. We've got our eye on Marc Jacobs' Camille leather tote (was £1,335, now £934). We also recommend taking a look at the jeans department, where savings are to be had on Acne, Current Elliot and J Brand.
If you're interested in owning a bit of fashion history, there's a dress from the last collection designed by the late Alexander McQueen with 40% off (was £4,760, now £2,856).
The high street favourite has some on-trend pieces on sale at even more affordable prices. Anyone still looking for a winter coat should take a look at their outerwear section, where the Boyfriend Coat all of the Stylist office swooned over is down to £35 from £75.
If you're need in some post-Christmas TLC, take a look at the Harvey Nics' beauty sale, where highlights include Elemis skincare sets down from £50 to £35. On the clothing front, there's a classic Diane Von Furstenburg wrap dress reduced from £340 to £170.
