This Week’s Must-Haves
The Handbook’s Lifestyle Editor, Elaine Lloyd-Jones, has pulled together a thoughtfully curated edit of some of the best pieces to buy now. This week, our focus is the January sales. All too often have we ended up impulse purchasing something that we’ve never actually worn, so our aim is to guide you through the mayhem towards classic buys which ooze longevity, from brands and styles we know will go the distance. Enjoy!
This cream cover-up is crafted from a beautiful wool-mix fabric and comes in a slightly oversized blazer-style silhouette. A true classic, I can't believe it's even in the sale.
Price: Was £165, Now £98
I love this brand! And the two-tone effect of this bag. It reminds me of the much-talked-about Céline Trio series, but it's a fraction of the price.
Price: Was £415, Now £165
I always look for classic wool and cashmere jumpers in the sale. Pieces like this, that won't date. And, I do love a puff sleeve.
Price: Was £69, Now £41
This dress will see you through a gazillion occasions over spring and summer. It's versatility knows no bounds. Sandals on the beach, heels for dinner and trainers for effortless daywear.
Price: Was £315, Now £157.50
The broderie detail on this black knit hints that spring is coming. Cosy enough for now, and cool enough for later - it's just a great transeasonal piece.
Price: Was £85, Now £59
Face coverings are now up there with everyday essentials like phones and keys. Do away with disposables, this re-usable version is pretty as well as purse-friendly.
Price: Was £30, Now £10
