When the summer sales arrive, I'm filled with equal parts "Yay—bargains!" and "Where the heck do I start?" So much so that I usually opt for the fail-safe option and avoid them altogether. I am, however, partial to a good designer sale where the hidden gems are easier to find—much to my bank account's dismay. I thought I should help my bank out (you're welcome, Natwest) and make myself feel like I'm somehow saving money in the process by heading to the high-street sites instead. With so many summer sales dropping this month from the likes of ASOS and Arket to Topshop, I decided to search through all of them to find the six best ones. You know the ones that are actually worth the thumb-ache? I wasn't disappointed.
I'm a sucker for good mules, and these beauties are now in the & Other Stories sale in both yellow and silver.
To help out my fellow shoppers even further, I've curated an edit of 34 summery pieces to get before they inevitably sell out. From Topshop's zesty straw bag that costs the same as a couple of Costa coffees to the H&M dress 90% of the Who What Wear office already owns, continue to find the best of the best from the high-street sales to add to your summer wardrobe—starting from just £10.
