Summer sale season is officially here.

Wish lists are building with bargains and shopping baskets are filling with golden finds.

However, sales can be overwhelming.

The choice is infinite and it’s very easy to find yourself purchasing for the sake of the price, rather than any fashion fancy.

When buying in the sales, it’s best to stick to staple pieces that you know you can wear time and time again. Steer clear of trends and try to stay within the parameters of your own personal style.

Neutral tones such as black and beige are more solid purchases, while it’s prime time to invest in great jeans or an occasion dress.

So to save you the time and hassle that comes with sifting through the online bargain bins, we have found seven of the best sale items that are built to last.

Happy shopping!

Knitwear is never a bad buy. Worn almost all year round in our British climate, versatility is at its core.
