Where to bag some great online bargains this bank holiday Monday


by Marie Kelly
18th Mar 2019

If you’ve had enough of parades and pubs this weekend (and if you have any money left), why not treat yourself to a little online shopping? Here are some of the best online bargains to bag today.

Appropriate for both work and weekends, this top is a chic piece that can be styled so many ways (over a T-shirt or polo-neck just for starters). Animal print is always in style and this piece will work whatever the weather throws at us.

Animal print blouse, €15.99 at Zara

The Spanish online retailer bimbaylola.com always offers something a little bit different. These trousers will suit women with a flamboyant sense of style as well as those who prefer a more subdued look. If you’re the latter, style with no-nonsense neutrals. For the former, create a look of mismatched prints.

Zebra dots paper bag trousers, €136 (reduced from €170) at bimbylola.com

It can be difficult to find interesting weekend wear, but this oversized silk blouse fits the bill. Obviously it can be layered until the weather warms up a bit, and as such offers plenty of opportunities to create interesting outfits (try layering over a long-sleeved T-shirt; mixing utilitarian fabrics with feminine materials really works).

Oversized silk shirt, €49.95 (reduced from €79.95) at massimodutti

This top is so chic and is massively reduced, so worth bagging if you’d like to begin populating your wardrobe with designer brands. An easy piece that can be paired with jeans as easily as these gorgeous fuchsia trousers, it’ll make a sophisticated addition to any woman’s wardrobe.

Gathered satin blouse, Tibi, €140 (reduced from €615) at theoutnet.com

A woman can never have too many coats (or so I think), and this structured jersey version from Uniqlo is a great wardrobe addition. The deep tone of blush pink is very flattering and layered over a matching polo-neck, it will look incredibly chic.

Double faced coat, €59.90 (reduced from €99.90) at uniqlo.com
