I Only Shop Discounted Designer Pieces—My 3 Favourite Stores Are on Sale and This Is What I've Saved

The new season is upon us, bringing with it intermittent sunshine and of course, the summer sales. As we edge closer to summer holidays, weddings and al fresco dinners, you may find there are gaps in your wardrobe where hard-working pieces should be. We've long shared our thoughts on the benefits of investing in more premium pieces because of the high-quality fabrics and excellent designs, but these purchases are, after all, an investment. That's why I always look for sales and discounted prices, and I've had success in the past.

From my beloved Fendi bag which has served my wardrobe for almost a decade (and was snapped up at £400 less than retail price) to the timeless Burberry trench coat that I call upon almost every season, there are always hero pieces to be found in the sales—you just have to know where to look. And that's exactly why I'm here. Three of my favourite luxury retailers have launched their summer sales, and I have a feeling your wardrobe will thank me.

As a savvy shopper, I'm always looking for ways to make the most of any purchase, and a sale is always a good place to start. Naturally, it's only worth the saving if the piece truly serves your wardrobe and can remain a part of your outfit builds for years to come. That's why I took it upon myself to save you money and time in creating a concise edit of sleek, wear-forever pieces that are worth spending that little bit more on.

There are summer heroes like a seriously chic Saint Laurent basket bag that will accompany you on every holiday from now on and iconic warm-weather dresses from Matteau. Finding The Row items on sale is a tough feat, but I've come across some very special shoes destined to elevate all your outfits. I also tracked down cult favourites like The Frankie's Shop's Bea trousers alongside a selection of on-trend midi skirts primed for the summer months and beyond. So, let's get straight into it.
