If you’ve had those Paris Texas boots in your shopping bag since pre-lockdown or are forever longing for some Isabel Marant to hang in your wardrobe, now is the time to invest as summer sale season is in full swing. Scroll on for our edit of the best designer pieces to shop up to 70% off.

Shopping less but better should be part of all our agendas when it comes to fashion, and waiting for your favourite designer pieces to go into the sale is just one way to make that easier. Most of the multi-brand giants have already reduced their lines – NET, MATCHES and Harvey Nichol’s are the best places to start – and while right now swimwear, sandals and summer dresses might be the only things on your mind, now is a great time to plan ahead and get some autumn/winter capsule pieces into your wardrobe.

There are plenty of luxury knits to add to your collection from the likes of Isabel Marant, Ganni and Acne. We’re obsessed with the Marant Eleonore pastel blue mohair sweater – perfect with high-waisted jeans and her signature Deezia studded boots (also in the sale). But for something more affordable Ganni’s open-back ruffle sweater bridges the gap between day and dressed up. We’ve also got our eye on some buy now, keep forever blazers, from Max Mara’s navy masculine-inspired classic to Isabel Marant’s (again!) creamy double-breasted, impossibly chic Rami. In fact, sale season is the optimum time to be investing in anything Isabel Marant in our opinion.

But if you’re just itching to bulk out your summer wardrobe it’s not all heavy knits and cosy bargains to be had. Shop Ulla Johnson florals, Lisa Marie Fernandez swimsuits and Zimmermann shorts all at reduced prices, too.
