The presents have been opened, the champagne’s been drunk and the mince pies have transformed into muffin tops… Christmas is well and truly over. Far from consoling ourselves by eating leftover Cadbury’s miniature heroes, however, we’re caught up in the excitement of one of the best periods in the shopping calendar: the January sales!

 We’ve picked our top five sale steals that we’re sure will become your spring style staples. bellerosesufibrcesarofront

Although the shops may be stocking up with scant, floaty, spring-summer stock, let’s not forget that, back in reality, it’s still freezing outside! The Bellerose ‘Cesaro’ dress, knitted from soft, thick wool, is a lovely dark teal blue colour, which stands out against boots, tights and simple jewellery. For extra warmth, we love it layered with a slip or long-sleeved tee underneath, and the snugly ‘Zephyr’ coat on top.

To the tactical shopper, sale time is also a great window for buying year-round basics, like jeans and shirts, at fantastic prices. Our best selling J Brand ‘Alessandra’ jeans are brilliant with boots in Winter, flats in Spring, and turned up with sandals in Summer, but are now, for a limited time, only £99. Couple with the Vanessa Bruno lace shirt, in black or blush, to create a stylish look for all seasons. vbathepinkjbrandalessandra

The final, and perhaps most fabulous, reason to spend in the sales is… pure self indulgence. We love picking up a decadent bargain that we’d never splurge on if it was full price. Our favourite luxury piece is the dramatic Vanessa Bruno maxi dress. We’re captivated by its flattering flowing silk, and smitten with the subtle floral embroidery on the hem.
