Sale picks – six of the best – by Jo

Hands up who hates sale shopping? The crowds, the hassle, the terribly displayed rails and piles of clothes? Yup, me too. But online sales shopping, that’s a totally different ballgame. The opportunity to grab a bargain without the hassle? Yes please.

The Kettlewell sale is on right now and some of my favourite pieces are discounted. If you’re still struggling to work out how to wear those key pieces, here’s a few styling tips and tricks:

Jenna tunicraw-jenna_tunic

I love the cosy relaxed feel of the Jenna tunic – simply pair with leggings or soft skinny jeans for a casual style that still makes you feel your best. Complete the look with a Florence Infinity Scarf and cosy boots.

lola 3/4 sleeveraw-lola_dress

The Lola dress is a Kettlewell bestseller, and with good reason. Ruching at the waist hides a multitude of sins, a gently draped neckline suits a variety of face and body shapes and this season’s version comes with 3/4 sleeves for a cool-weather feel and added confidence for those of you who aren’t in love with your upper arms. Don’t forget that the Lola dress comes in a sparkle version too (also on sale), and if you’re already looking ahead to warmer weather, the short sleeved version is also discounted at the moment. Wear with a Coin Pendant Necklace, a Metallic Leather Clutch Bag and simple court shoes.

 long cascade

 I am a massive fan of the Long Cascade – it’s probably my single most used Kettlewell item. And it also very rarely goes on sale, so now is a great opportunity to snap one up. It adds a great splash of colour and a bit of swish and drape to the most laid back outfits. Worn here with jeans, boots and a Silky Crew Neck.

crossover topraw-crossover_top

 The Crossover Top is one of those items that is just incredibly useful to have in your wardrobe. Whether you need something to pair with jeans for a trip to the pub, with smart trousers for work or with a slinky pencil skirt for evening, the crossover will cover all bases. And if you’re keeping it solely for evening, why not treat yourself to the (also on sale) sparkle version? Add a pop of colour with a Suede Tassel Clutch.

long merino cardigan

raw-long_merino_cardiThe boyfriend shape of the long merino cardigan is the ultimate in casual cool. Throw it on over a slouchy Davina tee and skinnies for a bit of boho chic, or simply throw it over your pyjamas to watch your favourite TV program for cosy woolly warmth (if I were on trend, I would be using the word hygge right now, but I will resist).

maria cowl

raw-maria_cowlThe Maria cowl is literally the cleverest cowl neck top I have ever seen, even though it took about 1,000 attempts to work out how to describe it while we were writing the last catalogue. How many times have you put on a beautifully draped cowl neck, only to realise that every time you lean forward you are treating the world to a fabulous view of your bra? The Maria cowl has a nifty little fixed scoop neck inside the cowl to prevent that very problem, while keeping all the glamour and romance of the deep draped neckline. Wear with  Jacqueline Trousers  and add sparkle with a Metallic Leather Clutch Bag and the Coin Pendant Necklace.
