I Always Shop For Designer-Looking Buys at Arket—23 That Just Went On Sale

As a fashion editor, it's my job to have my finger on the pulse of the retail calendar and ensure that any time a sale drops, you’re kept in the know. Often, these come in waves of end of season sales or events like Black Friday, but occasionally a brand will add a quick sale mid month, and that’s when being in the know comes in handy. Right now, trusty high street brand Arket is offering 20% off some of its best-selling styles, and I've handpicked some of the best sale items below.

Arket is a brand that consistently offers up elevated basics and chic staples, making it one I keep open on my desktop at all times, ensuring I'm up-to-date with new in styles, or a restock of beloved pieces. Especially when it comes to premium-looking pieces with a classic edge, this high street store always comes through. Lucky for us, the sale includes some of Arket's most popular designer-looking styles, including the alpaca-blend jumper all our editors have got their eye on, as well as the wide-leg tailored trousers (some of the best in the biz). And all just in time for spring.

To make scouring through the sale even easier, I’ve honed in on the pieces that are really worth seeing. All have a common theme of high-quality staples that will serve your wardrobe now, and for many years to come. You’ll find versatile shirts from cotton to denim, classic loafers that will see you through all seasons, and plenty of cosy knitwear (something that Arket does incredibly well). 

Read on to discover all of the items I'd recommend shopping in Arket's sale.
