I Have 8 Weddings Next Year and Found So Many Great On-Sale Dresses to Wear

Anytime I add something to my basket this month, I have to remind myself that I'm spending most of my time in jeans and a T-shirt working from home and don't have the need for another summer midi dress. Then the summer sales hit and I started thinking forward to the wedding invitations that are stacking up for 2021. I currently have eight pencilled in for next year. Due to cancelled weddings and events this year, it's not surprising that the summer sales are filled with dresses and party accessories that would usually be low in stock at this time of year.

I've trawled through Net-a-Porter, Harvey Nichols and others to find some of the best designer discounts if you want to be prepared for next year. I would never be able to typically afford a Simone Rocha dress or Paco Rabanne party bag, but with over 60% off, I'm finding myself tempted (if I don't buy anything else all summer, of course).
