Smash the sales: 10 of our favourite picks from the sale sections this week


Do you ever look at the clothes hanging in your wardrobe and think, "Boy, I really don't like any of the clothes I own." Well, I'm right in the middle of a closet breakdown at the moment and feel like every day is a battle to wear something that I actually feel good in — with a particular focus on work clothes. You see I have a lot of jeans and T-shirt combinations, but am incapable of making these combos look anything other than scruffy. Plus, I have a whole lot of clothes that just seem very childish to me these days, but I'm not quite willing to let them go yet. I seem to be stuck in a clothing rut — not quite sure what I want to be wearing but I'm fairly certain that it's not whatever is in my wardrobe at the moment. This past week I've been hunting the sale sections for clothes that are work appropriate without being corporate as well as some quirky accessories and a few funky bits and pieces for the weekend.

    I like the Ann Taylor jumper, super comfy and super casual

      I always thought Ann Taylor was totally for middle aged mums but they’re actually really good – especially for practical workwear and well cut shirts.
