This is my favourite time to buy in the sales. You may think the best is gone, but actually there are always gems to be unearthed in those final couple of weeks. Here are five pieces soon to be ticked off my wish list.
I like pieces that offer a contrast. The girlish frill detailing of this utilitarian sweatshirt adds a cool punctuation. It comes in cream also, but I prefer the versatility of navy.

The distressed appearance of this mini skirt makes it appear quite vintage-looking. The studded detailing on the fluted hemline makes a strong style statement. I’d pair this with an oversized sweater and flat boots.

The almost childish graphic on this Warehouse top creates a stark contrast with the sexy one-shoulder cut. I love the primary colours; they’ll add real punch to your wardrobe. Pair this with a pleated skirt and a fabulous neckpiece. When the weather cools down, layer it over a black T-shirt.

I love that joggers have been elevated to acceptable daywear. These comfy drawstring bottoms from H&M look great styled as they are with a cami and contemporary leather sandals.

Stripes are an easy way to introduce pattern into your wardrobe. The twist-front of this Topshop tee brings a nice point of difference to the piece.
