Jo's sale picks - wear now, wear later!
HOW has sale time come around again so quickly? I feel like I only just went through the excitement of a new season sneak peek, showcasing and picking my favourites from the new collection, and suddenly it's sale time, and before you know it even the countdown to the autumn/winter collection will be on!
And that's not the last time you're going to hear me say autumn/winter today, even though we're bang in the middle of summer. When considering sale purchases, it's always best to think not just about how they'll work for the current season, but how they can work as the season (and weather) shifts, because who wants to buy a lovely new wardrobe addition and then have to store it for half a year only a couple of months later? With that in mind, I'm going to be not only styling my four (one for each season) sale favourites today, but also looking at how they can be styled as the temperature drops later on in the year.
Ella Spot Skirt
Style Notes: The Ella Spot Skirt is a dream to style for the entire year; simply pick out the lighter, brighter shades from your seasonal version of the skirt for warm weather dressing, and opt for deeper, cosier tones as the weather turns.
Style notes: Summer is simple, but a sleeveless top might not feel like the most obvious transitional piece. Panic not; the halterneck creates a perfect colour splash layering piece under a wrap once the weather is too cold for just a camisole. The Chloe Jacket and Cashmere Gauze stole add extra cosy vibes.
Long Cascade Wrap
Style notes: Use your long cascade to add swish and glamour to a simple skirt and top combo for summer evenings, and when the temperature drop use it to layer up for the cosiest of laid back outfits, with enough contrast and brightness for the now-routine family Zoom call!
Style notes: Pair your Orchid Eliza with lightweight fabrics and bright colours for summer (try it with white jeans or shorts), but add texture and layers and you've got the perfect transitional piece - deeper colours make the otherwise summery colour feel entirely cool weather appropriate too.
