Nothing catches the attention of the GLAMOUR office as quickly as the words ‘fashion sale’. Throw in the words ‘& Other Stories’ ahead of it, and you can expect a (virtual) stampede to their website, to scoop up the best fashion buys at a discounted price – because they don’t hang around for long.
It’s hard to say what exactly it is about & Other Stories that has made them such a hit with fashion editors and influencers, but their unique combination of scandi-cool and wearability is a winning formula. And as we prepare for lockdown restrictions to slowly start lifting, we’re ready to wave goodbye to our tracksuits and embrace some *real* clothing, for the first time in months. Our finances, however might not be quite so thrilled with a return to normality (overpriced cocktails we’re looking at you), so if we can save on a new dress or handbag, sign us up.
Whilst there may not be new-season pieces in the & Other Stories sale, there are plenty of stylish offerings that are on-trend for Spring/Summer 2021 – and more importantly, a host of classic items too, for perfecting your more sustainable capsule wardrobe. With up to 70% off you might be tempted to add *everything* to bag – but luckily for you (and your bank balance), we’ve rounded up the best of the sale that you should be spending your hard-earned cash on.
There are plenty of coats and winter boots still on offer, but with spring around the corner, we’ll be adding colourful separates to our bag (then pairing them with everything from denim to plain white tees.) We have our eye on this yellow wool-blend cardigan, these light green wide-leg trousers and this baby pink silk crepe shirt; all just the perfect antidote to months of a drab, lockdown wardrobe. & Other Stories is of course also known for their chic dresses and we love this turquoise mini with cut out detail (perfect for June 21) and black midi wrap dress equally; so much so, in fact, that we’ll probably take one of each.
While there aren’t a ton of accessories included in the up to 70% markdowns, but we’ve already spotted the pieces worth your cash – this classic but statement-making two tone bag and these chunky leather sandals (now under £50!) will see you through the season ahead and years to come. These sale buys are all flying into virtual baskets though, so we suggest adding to your own before it’s too late.
