The Matches Sale Is Full of Designer Buys That Are Already on Your Wish List

As much as I love an end-of-year discount, there's something special about a midseason sale. As an impatient person, the chance to scoop up a bargain on new season styles that I can immediately throw on and add to my wardrobe rotation is particularly enticing. Excitingly, Matches is offering 25% off selected new styles right now. 

There's no bad time to add a great piece to your forever wardrobe, but investing in a brilliant piece that you might not wear until winter returns can feel a little anticlimactic. Thankfully, these styles are all spring/summer ready, from sandals to basket bags, dresses to light tailoring. And all embrace timeless elements that will make them clever additions to your wardrobe that you'll want to re-wear for years to come.

Better still, you'll find a selection of familiar brands and cult styles that may have been sitting on your wish list for a while, like Frankie Shop's iconic blazer, Chloé's much-loved Woody bag, and plenty more favourites at 25% off. I'll be honest, I've fallen victim to the excitement of a discount one too many times. To make sure you don't repeat the same mistake and make the most of your investment, I've honed in on certain styles that are particularly classic, cool and made to retain their style points no matter changing trends or seasons. As with anything else you buy, a sale purchase should only be made with the utmost consideration—which is why I've focused my energy on creating an edit I truly believe will stand the test of time. 

To embrace the mid-season sale, spend over £200 and use code REFRESH25 to receive 25% off purchases at checkout.
