Christmas may well get earlier every year, but so too do the January sales – and that means shopping for partywear is even more tempting.
But you don’t have to face the dismal prospect of frantically rummaging through rails in shops looking increasingly like car boot sales to find the bargains – with several high street stores and online retailers kicking off their discounts and pre-Christmas offers this week, we selflessly braved the very real risk to our bank accounts and scoured the virtual high street to bring you our pick of the partywear bargains.
So scroll through our gallery below for the best sale dresses, boots, trousers, heels and jumpsuits available now, but be warned: while available at time of writing, they’re bound to sell out quickly.
Just pretend it’s last-minute present shopping. Which it kind of is. For yourself.
