When the weather’s a bit grey or lockdown’s getting you, well, down, there’s still one thing you can rely on to bring a bit of joy and light into your days, and that’s online shopping. More specifically, shopping the sales.
Albeit from the safety of our homes, browsing the virtual sale rail can still bring just as much of a sartorial serotonin boost as if you were in the store IRL. In fact, it’s even better, as this way you get to swap the cramped, poorly-lit changing room for the comfort of your own bedroom – bliss. And right now, one of our favourite high street stores has a huge spring sale on – that’s right, & Other Stories is currently offering up to 40 per cent off some of their most gorgeous designs.
From perfect-for-spring dresses and skirts to utility-style jumpsuits and hard working wardrobe staples, the discounted selection holds everything you need for the season ahead and more. In particular, we’re looking to invest in timeless pieces that won’t go out of style come next year, maximising on wearability and costs-per-wear.
There’s a plethora of accessories, too – hats, bags, sunglasses, jewellery and shoes that tick all the right trend boxes for this season feature heavily – think wear-with-everything gold hoops, raffia mules (one of this year’s biggest sandal trends) and wide-brim bucket hats (don’t knock ’em until you try one).
It also seems that & Other Stories is having a serious crush on green tones right now – from mint to apple by way of sage, it’s all there. And no wonder – it’s a suitably bright colour for spring that looks even more gorgeous when muted down and there’s a shade to suit every skin tone.
