Sale Investments to Buy Now and Wear ALL Through 2018

Sale Investments to Buy Now and Wear ALL Through 2018

January; the month of frugality. How much do we cut back after those pre-Christmas six weeks of excessive eating, drinking and shopping? Resolutions to hit the gym and curb the spends have already fallen flat at The Hut HQ with most of us opting for after work drinks and impulse sale purchases rather than treadmills and a healthy bank balance.

If you, unlike Team Hut, have resolved to live a thriftier January, then here is something to throw a spanner into your well-intentioned works. Whilst it can be easy to switch off to the calling of the sale banners, here are some of the unmissable buys that may have passed you by.

Our shopping editor, Georgia, brings you the investment pieces from this season’s sale that you will be wearing for years to come.

Psst – There’s currently and extra 10% off all sale items on The Hut when you use the code EXTRA10.

The Classic Coat

It’s September, the leaves are slowly turning and the weather is a bit nippier and you’re thinking – ‘I’m going to need a new coat’. Unfortunately, all those killer styles are full price and you end up purchasing something because you can afford it – not because it calls to your inner Trinny and Susannah. If only you’d bought that perfect puffer in The Hut’s End of Season Sale.

It’s not a totally preposterous idea to buy a new coat in January – let’s face it, we probably have at least another three months of layering season. What is totally preposterous is the fact that we’re practically giving these away.

Boys, a classic quilted from Barbour will stand the test of time. Layer over knits for winter and transition into spring with fewer layers.

Ladies, the Parajumpers parka is THE coat that you will wear forever. Warm, practical, stylish and with a multitude of pockets for phones, keys, lipsticks and everything in between (there’s also almost £400 off!).

The Luxe Knit

OK, hear me out, friends and family hate me using this term but the ‘luxe knit’ is honestly a game changer. Pair up or down this is the item that will take your look from 0-100. Fans of Holly Willoughby’s style will know that this is something she does oh so well. Take a luxe knit and dress with jeans and boots, jeans and trainers or jeans and heels – already you have three potential outfit ideas. Throw in a couple of skirts, one leather, maybe one satin number and you’re party ready. It’s honestly the ultimate wardrobe go-to.

The Staple Denim

This one is basically a no-brainer. Are you under the age of 70? Then you’ll probably wear jeans. Finding that perfect fit, admittedly can be a struggle though. That’s why we’ve created handy fit guides for Levi’s, Diesel and Edwin.

Timeless styles from Nudie Jeans, 7 for all Mankind and Levi’s are definitely worth the investment. If you buy one thing off the back of this article, please let it be one pair of high quality jeans. Whilst I personally don’t wear jeans every day, having that one reliable pair of denim that I can fall back on has honestly been a god send.

The Statement Bag

Investing in a statement bag is such a sensible use of funds; it’s the only item that will pull any outfit together and make you feel great about yourself. This is something that is going to be your best friend for a good ten years so choose wisely.

When you own a statement bag you can skimp on the rest of your outfit – jeans and a tee are basic until you throw in your arm candy. And realistically, you’re actually saving money in the long run. Instead of chasing various trends you have that one solid piece that you know goes with everything.

I like to break it down into cost per wear. The Aspinal of London Lottie Micro Bag is £207 in The Hut’s End of Season Sale. If you wear your bag every day that’s just 57p per day (and that’s without taking the extra 10% off with the code EXTRA10). That’s less than a bus pass, coffee, almost less than a Freddo. Take my advice, buy the bag.

The Standout Accessory

Maybe you haven’t been so frugal in January and you are struggling to afford any of the afore mentioned investments. These standout accessories are timeless classics as well as being purse friendly.

Maybe you have a birthday or anniversary coming up and you want to impress them without breaking the bank, maybe you just want to treat yourself…

The Unbeatable Shoe

Whether it’s a heavy boot or a delicate heel, there’s a shoe in every man and woman’s wardrobe that incites an emotional reaction. Maybe it’s a pair of designer heels that you fought over and won at a sample sale, maybe it’s a snow boot that has seen you through thick and thin for a good ten years.

Either way, we hope that these shoes connect with you on an emotional level – 50% off with an extra 10%, I mean COME ON!

A fan of maximalist fashion and all things fluffy, you can find me layering prints or looking for new earrings. A disco queen at heart, if I'm not dancing around the house to 70s soul, I'm counting my flares.
