Buy now, wear later - the best of the sale

Hannah wears the Red Coral Susie Silk Shirt

Sale shopping can be a tricky thing – should you focus on buying summer clothes, knowing that in only a few short weeks they’ll be largely redundant until next year, or invest in autumn/winter clothes, but be unable to enjoy them for another couple of months.

I’d much rather focus on those transitional pieces. The ones which you can enjoy right away but which will also work hard all autumn/winter. So today I’m rounding them all up – the perfect pair of leggings, the ultimate layering pieces, the most beautiful silk shirt. I’ll show you how to style each for summer, and how to transition each one into an autumn/winter wardrobe staple too

Pair our effortlessly elegant Susie Silk Shirt with white ankle length trousers for a glamorous summer look which won't get you hot under the collar. A pencil skirt and opaques transition seamlessly to cooler weather.

The relaxed fit of the Sara V means you won't overheat unless the temperature really soars, but it also layers beautifully for cooler weather. The subtle fleck in the fabric gives an extra depth to each shade.

The composition of the Milan range - 70% cotton, 30% merino wool - makes it ideal for almost any weather condition. Cool when it's hot and cosy when the temperature drops, it will take you almost anywhere with a little judicious layering.

There is officially no British season in which a pair of leggings isn't a useful addition to your wardrobe. Simply add a Long Cami when it's hot, then treat them as the base of a cosy layered outfit once we hit autumn.

Thank you for the suggestions Jo. I live in Ireland where a run of gorgeous sunny weather in Summer time is more a dream than a reality so 'buy now, wear later' apples to now!
