24 of the best mid-season sale buys

24 of the best mid-season sale buys

Just when the high street begins to wane, the mid-season sales kick in and inspire our wardrobes. Here are our picks of the best buys


As the news rolls on with more and more developments about Covid19, we are tending to look for any type of distraction from the worrying things we’re hearing. Traditional retail therapy is off the cards at the moment, as we are discouraged from gathering in big groups (which shopping centres tend to have), but online shopping and outfit planning is always a fun alternative.

We’re not advising you to blow your money on a new wardrobe out of boredom — quite the opposite. The mid-season sales are great for securing basics that your wardrobe might be missing at a much lower price, to have and wear for hopefully years to come. The likes of the Outnet and COS are brilliant for these staple pieces, like cheap cashmere knits and wool coats, while Mango and Topshop’s high street styles provide the fun.

Scroll down for 24 of our favourite potential buys.
