Craving a wardrobe pick-me-up? These luxury last-minute sale buys are the perfect remedy to the January blues
We’re mid-way through January (how are we only mid-way?) and the madness of sale season is finally drawing to a close. But although stocks may have dwindled, this is the best time to find real bargains, especially as many sites offer extra discounts to shift their leftover pieces.
But while we love perusing the high street and cheap options, this buy-cheap-throw-away mentality does have a massive effect on the environment. If you are in the mood for retail therapy, take a look at what you can really spend, and see how you can spend it wisely — should you essentially throw away your cash on throwaway items, or invest it in one or two great quality pieces that you can still rock this time next year? We know our answer, and think you should too.
With that in mind, we scoured three of the internet’s favourite luxury e-stores, Net-a-Porter, Farfetch and The Outnet, to find 26 items that we love now and are sure will love again.
