Sales pieces you should buy now for the next winter.
We chose timeless pieces that are the epitome of winter chic and look more expensive than they are. For example, a classic beige coat with a twist; the puffy sleeves bring contemporaneity to the outwear. Likewise, the leather trousers, mini-dress and shirt are a must-have for a pulled-together wardrobe that you can also wear in fall and spring. And thanks to their minimalist silhouettes and quality material, these pieces are a sure bet to buy better and buy less in the winter sales. As for knitwear, we got inspired by the black & white check and rainbow stripes Preen by Thornton Bregazzi presented at London Fashion Week S/S22. In addition, pieces in luxurious materials like velvet, metallic silver, and classic animal print elevate winter looks, so don’t miss out on these on sale. And finally, a printed second-skin top and knitted vests allow a plethora of layering combinations.
On sale now, but with an eye on the next spring.
Since the Pantone Colour of the Year 2022 is the purple Very Peri, consider getting the Mango cardigan with a statement collar and a matching Arket plissé skirt. And, if you’re already dreaming of spring, the following dresses are for you. Either floral, plaid or animal print, their midi length and roomy cut make it possible to start wearing them now. Just layer a turtleneck under your dress and finish the look with boots. Not to mention they’re comfortable and excellent to hide any extra kilo left from winter! But if you prefer mini dresses, look at the beautiful smock pieces in our selection.
Of course, winter sales are the moment to get a timeless trenchcoat. You can throw this versatile piece over any outfit; even an evening dress like the stylish Sylvie Grateau in Emily in Paris. The cute striped blouse and white shirt with Peter Pan collars are classic additions to your spring wardrobe. Additionally, you can wear them next fall and winter under a chunky cable knit sweater. And they will look great with the embroidered cardigan or sweater with an artisanal vibe.
We’ve found fantastic summer pieces on sale now!
Who says you cannot buy summer pieces in classic winter sales? We like good quality and natural materials like cotton and linen that are chicer for warmer seasons. Polished shorts will be one of the most popular trends in S/S 2022, so get tailored Bermuda shorts with flattering wide legs that you can combine with a blazer for a cool office outfit. Complete your look with loafers or ballerinas. But if you have short legs, we suggest your wear heels to elongate the silhouette. Finally, you will add a touch of glam to your summer with asymmetric one-shoulder pieces. So, consider buying the beige top and chocolate brown frilled dress. And last but not least, dresses are your best friends for summer, be it a timeless LBD, a romantic floral or classic plaid.
