Stylist’s top 3 tips for braving the sales…
If you’re going in store, dress light
There’s nothing worse than having to take off and put back on multiple layers and chunky boots and scarves. Just no. Go prepared and opt for a dress, slip on shoes and a single jacket.
Sign up to newsletters
Most brands alert customers to their sales by email, so make sure you’re signed up so you don’t miss the announcement. Many more shops are hosting private sales that you can access if signed up, too, so it’s never a waste.
Save items to your wishlist
We’re all guilty of getting overwhelmed by a good bargain. We end up buying things we don’t need or even really want. In advance, add things you really want to buy to your wishlist so they’re all saved and ready for when they are (hopefully) reduced.
Happy bargain hunting!
