It's the most wonderful time of the year. Yes it's the holidays, but it's also the annual sale season! Although I have no interest in promoting the frivolous purchasing of pieces you don't need, shopping during sale time is as good as time as any, better in fact, to invest in your capsule wardrobe. Whether it's a last minute party dress for New Year's Eve, office-appropriate tailoring or a silk white shirt that can really be worn so many ways–I always look to this time of year as a period to invest in wardrobe essentials.
One of my go-to brands for this has always been Reiss. Consistently offering expensive-looking items season upon season, you can always count on Reiss to provide everything from a working wardrobe or wedding guest dress. The December sale, which is currently offering 50% off, is no different–from tuxedo tailoring to cashmere polo necks, the collection is, as ever, filled with timeless pieces made with fashion-forward cuts and colours. For example, if like many of us you're heading back into the office in Jan, wide leg trousers are a must. These white ones are so sophisticated, and when worn with a belt, a fine knit and a checked trench, it's professional yet perfectly put together, but pair it with an embellished bra top and heels and oof! It's a sexy date night ensemble.

Speaking of date night and other more dressy situations, the sale selection has plenty of last minute trophy pieces ideal for festive celebrations. I simply couldn't not mention this satin-jersey-mix skirt–whose ruched panelled detail and bodycon silhouette at the hips is nothing short of genius. So form-flattering and contouring, it's quite literally made me re-think my New Year's Eve outfit. And for those that like a jumpsuit, did you see this red velvet number?
And with that, I've listed below all the things I think are worth checking out–enjoy!
