Top 10 Best of Sale
Even though it’s been two weeks since Boxing Day, the Sales are still going strong. There are still swathes of people crammed into the department stores, and people trawling the Internet looking for bargain bags, discount dresses and a cheaper chemise. There’s a lot to go through, so Motilo thought we would do all the hard work for you. Here’s a collection of the things you’ll really benefit from, all for a fraction of their former price. The real cost is time, because the longer you wait, the less likely you are to find the right size. So what are you waiting for?
1. Christopher Kane, Leather-trimmed Flocked Tulle Dress; WAS £2,280 NOW £1,140
Owning a Christopher Kane anything puts your firmly within the fashion elite, and a statement Kane dress has to be at the top of any aspiring woman’s wish list. Now you can prance in purple for half the price, in a gown that will take you through to the summer.
2. Givenchy, Antigona Shopper; WAS £1,540 NOW £1,078
Chopping a few hundred pounds off a seriously versatile, practical and yet still statement bag is no mean feat, and the Givenchy label only adds to its credibility. This was a truly perfect investment piece even when it was full price. Now? It’s just irresistible.
3. Acne, Mape Cropped Lizard-embossed Leather Jacket; WAS £800 NOW £400
Leather jackets are the kind of item you wait until the sale to buy. The leather material always makes them more expensive than they are warm – but we all know how amazing they look, both with a pair of skinny jeans and as an edgy addition to a floral dress. 50% off this mouth watering khaki Acne number is more than enough reason to splash out.
4. Rag & Bone, Capri Leather Trousers; WAS £808 NOW £484
Just like the jacket, a pair of leather trousers are a new addition to a capsule wardrobe. Worn with heels, sandals, or a pair of ankle boots and a floaty shirt – they’ll slim your ankles and legs and add a bit of fashion know-how. Especially in this bright and bold aqua blue.
5. Mary Katrantzou, Dimpsy Dials Print A-line Coat; WAS £1,755 NOW £1,228
Katrantzou is one of the designers that editors, bloggers and celebrities are going gaga over. Having one of her unique and colourful digital prints adoring your body is a surefire way of getting noticed and feeling fabulous.
6. Elizabeth and James, Lucas Silk Crepe De Chine Jumpsuit; WAS £355 NOW £213
This incredibly sophisticated was already a steal at £355, but now 25% off, it’s become an essential for your wardrobe. It’s flattering, can be formally accessorised for the office and sparkled up for the evening.
7. Miu Miu, T-strap Bow Pump; WAS £467 NOW £186
Buying a pair of statement heels is a fantasy lingering in most women’s imagination. Often, spending so much money on non practical platforms cannot be justified, but when a pair of ’70s inspired Miu Miu t-bar pumps in perfect pink are reduced by nearly £300, you just can’t say no.
8. Alice + Olivia, Suede Hipster Shorts; WAS £321 NOW £225
Alice + Olivia are undoubtedly one of the hipster brands of high fashion, which they prove with this eye-popping pair of hipster shorts. At a first glance, they seem like a scary option, but think of them both with black tights and boots, and in the summer with a billowing white top and they suddenly become a potential favourite.
9. Converse, Chuck Taylor Missoni Knitted High-top Sneakers; WAS £210 NOW £84
£84 is basically the price of a good pair of normal Converse trainers, let alone some Missoni patterned and knitted high-tops. Imagine these poking out the end of your favourite slim-fit jeans and you’ll feel 100 times cooler.
10. Peter Pilotto, Fox Fur Collar; WAS £1,160 now £580
Everyone remembers this fox fur collar. We’ve featured it in a Top 10 before, actually, when it was full price because we thought it was so fantastic. Now you can have it for a fraction of the price. People far and wide will recognise it and revere your perfect taste, and they’ll never have to know you practically thieved it for half the price.
