Investment Pieces In The January Sales
Posted on 25 December 2017
Now you’ve finished splashing the cash for Christmas, it’s about time you treat yourself. Although most January sales now make an early appearance in December, it’s still a great time of year to find some investment buys for your wardrobe. We’ve put together a little guide to the best investment pieces you can look for in the sale, to bring some festive spirit into the new year.
Forever a wardrobe staple, denim is a classic piece to hunt for in the sale. The ubiquitous skinny jean is a great purchase if you want something that will work around a huge array of outfits, but you can opt for a more current silhouette such as a pair of mom jeans or boyfriend jeans. Keep an eye out for some statement denim if you want to find something special in the sale. Embroidered and embellished jeans will both stay standout for next season.
The post-Christmas sales are the perfect time to invest in some new outerwear. Winter is definitely not over yet, and so you’ll still get plenty of wear out of some seasonal sale buys. Opt for a timeless classic such as a camel coat or a tailored black coat, or try something more modern such as a puffer jacket or a jacquard dress coat. The classic cream trench and the leopard print wool coat are both elegant staples that come back into style season after season.
You’ll find plenty of fresh arm candy in the sales, with lots of designer options on offer at more affordable prices. Invest in a classic big brand handbag or look to the more niche, boutique brands for something unique. If you want a taste of high fashion but still can’t take the handbag plunge, opt for a sophisticated purse that you can use to elevate your current bags.
There has never been a better time for jewellery. Artisan makers are having a moment when it comes to handcrafted design, so look to the sales to pick up a unique piece to add to your collection. Minimal jewellery is having a moment, with delicate necklaces and rings all made for layering. Look for charm chains and stacking bracelets to style with a watch from the James Derby Women's collection.
Investment In Tailoring
For men and women, the sales are a great time for tailoring. Stack up those sartorial style points with some beautifully tailored pieces from the Jermyn Street and Saville Row born brands. Invest in a three-piece suit, find a crisp white shirt that’ll work around your current suiting, or find a blazer that you can layer with your casuals.
