Spending January in another lockdown wasn’t exactly how we planned to spend dry Jan but here we are. With wine off the cards, retail therapy is a welcomed plan b and with this handy cost per wear guide you’ll spend smart and save loads in the long run. Shopping doesn’t solve everything but there’s no harm in treating yourself every now and then – especially with staple pieces that work in or outside the house. Even your bank balance would approve of this line up, trust us …
Hands up who wore joggers for most of last year? Exactly. Make the leap and invest in a smarter pair that work whether you’re on the sofa watching Bridgerton or braving the outside world. After almost a year spent at home, joggers have replaced jeans as the nation’s no.1 style staple. The question isn’t whether you will wear them enough it’s when will you ever take them off?! If you WFH Monday to Friday, go for your walk once a day and dress up to catch up with your girl gang at the weekend you’ve already got your cost per wear underway. We told you it was easy!
The Wrap Midi Skirt
For instant elevation you can’t go wrong with a midi skirt. Just like the house dress that became popular last summer spending time at home in a skirt is the epitome of chic. If you’re sick of the lounge life (can’t relate) it might be wise to invest in this key piece both for right now and future fun. Make masked heads turn at the supermarket and daily dog walks your runway with never ending style combos. If you dare to plan ahead this skirt becomes an even bigger bargain buy. We don’t want to jinx it but future desk to dinner plans are on course to look iconic ….
The White Shirt
A white shirt pays for itself in the long run, trust us. Whether you’re still in the office, WFH or just want to smarten up your look, it’s the key piece to have to hand. Style it with jeans, joggers, skirts or layering under chunky knits and statement coats. The ways to wear are never ending and if you wore this for work conference calls twice, under a jumper for dog walks three times and with a skirt for your lockdown bday celebrations, you’ll be getting a bargain every single time.
The Statement Coat
Outerwear is an investment but find the right coat and it’ll be in your wardrobe for life. A statement coat can dramatically change the style game and we’re big believers in pushing the sartorial boat out. You don’t have to choose houndstooth print, we’re just obsessed with it right now plus the monochrome makes putting outfits together a breeze. Still need convincing? It’s winter, it’s freezing, and walks are one of the only activities we’re allowed to do - you do the maths. By the time lockdown 3.0 is over, the cost per wear of this coat will be literal pennies!
