Here's how to shop the christmas sales like a pro

The festive sales madness has already began, and we are sooo excited. But it can be easy to get swept up in the craziness of it all and lose your head, making snap purchases you’ll regret later.

But fear not, we are on hand to help. Follow our guide to shopping the sales the savvy way and bag the best bargains with minimal stress. You’ll be navigating the sales like a pro before you knot it. It’s your ultimate sales tool kit.



1: Always bring a bottle of h20 to make sure you stay hydrated.

2: Never leave home without your phone: Not that we need to tell you to bring this along, but it’s great for transferring pennies quickly and you can also online shop at the same time. Hurrah!

3: Wear the right outfit: Dress in your fave skinnies to keep you comfortable all day – COMFORT IS KEY! Team with a loose cami and a jacket that’s easy to throw on and off in the fitting room and you’ve got the perfect sales shopping outfit.

Don’t forget your watch, it’s the perfect arm candy for keeping track of how long you are in each shop, and knowing when to hit the next. TIP: Set an alarm to alert you when to get up and go!

4: Bring along plenty of Snacks: No one likes a hangry shopper. Nuts and raisins are fab for when you need a 3pm boost.

5: Show some attitude: Show the other shoppers you mean business. We’re talking ‘#sorrynotsorry but that dress won’t suit you and I need it.’ Yup we went there. Be super sassy and that bargain will be yours.

6: Shop smart: Head to Dune, Office and Zara to grab your pick of the best boots and bags to take you into next season.

We love these cute cut out heels from Office, £75.00. The lace up detail is so pretty and comfortable, and the suede ticks off another trend.

If the thought of braving the high street leaves you quaking in your (new) boots head to their websites instead and shop from your sofa. Don’t forget to check out ASOS too.

7: Invest right: Suede and leather are still big news for Spring/Summer 2016 so it’s well worth investing in a key piece now and we promise it will see you through seasons to come.

This leather skirt will take you through to next season with ease. Make it work hard by dressing it up with heels and a sparkly top or sheer blouse, and down with a t-shirt and ankle boots.

The leather jacket is the best investment you can make, as it’s never out of fashion and trust us when we say it will go with EVERYTHING in your wardrobe. This one from River Island, £120.00 is a winner. We heart the contrasting sleeves and zip detailing.

Happy shopping!
