WINTER SALES ARE ABOUT TO START IN MOST CLOTHING STORES AND ALTHOUGH I’M NOT AN ADVOCATE OF WAITING FOR IT TO GO ON SALE BEFORE BUYING A GARMENT, HERE ARE THREE ITEMS THAT YOU NEED IN YOUR WINTER WARDROBE AND CAN BE BOUGHT ON SALE.
Metalicus Austin Textured Coat $199 (was $299.95)
A good quality coat in a timeless style will last much longer than just one winter. A beige trench coat or a classically styled wool coat can be almost an investment, so buy the best quality you can afford. Which is even better if the coat is on sale. Make sure the colour and style will mix and match with your current wardrobe – you will want to be able to wear your new coat with everything. Look for a flattering fit and length.
Jeanswest Tummy Trimmer Slim Straight $23.99, reduced from $69.99
Sale time is the perfect time to buy a high quality pair of jeans. When trying on jeans, remember that they will give almost a full size, so make sure the fit is super snug. Generally speaking, if you want a dressier pair of jeans, choose dark or black denim, but for a casual look, go for a lighter or faded denim. And yes, no matter what your age is, you can wear ripped jeans, while they remain on trend. For solving problems often encountered with buying jeans, read my blog here.
3. Leather boots.
Sandler Lennox Black Glove boots at Myer $174.96, reduced from $249.95
Not only will you be stepping out in style with a brand new pair of stylish leather boots, you’ll also have a spring in your step if you managed to get them at discounted price!
One of the most important thing about choosing boots, besides comfort, is the correct length. A flattering boot will lengthen and slim your legs, while the wrong boot will do the reverse. Choose a style that fits with the clothing you already own – if you have a wardrobe full of classic clothing, a pair of cowboy boots are not going to get much wear!
