Peace-out 2016

Welcome to the last What Sarah did... blog of 2016! What a year it’s been, from Brexit to Bake-off, to Bowie, there’s certainly been some highs and lows. To end the year with some positive vibes, we’re sharing our top picks of the EPIC WSd sale so you can start 2017 with a style savvy bang....

The Striped Shirt
Iconic and timeless, the Breton stripe is something that should feature in every woman’s wardrobe. The Scotch & Soda Breton top (now £48) will become your off-duty staple for seasons to come as well as a go-to top for every occasion, day or night! Go bold and team this humble hero with a clashing print or keep it simple with your favourite skinnies and a pair of leopard print flats.

The Little Black Dress
The oh so wonderful Audrey Hepburn made the LBD famous in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s and it’s become one of fashion’s most evolving trends ever since. Variations of the timeless classic have been showcased in WSd over the years but the MINKPINK Valley of the Vine dress (was £70, now £56) is a contemporary update on the usually fitted dress. The split bell sleeves add a touch of glam to your winter look while come the summer they’ll take on an ethereal vibe. Wear now with cosy tights and heels or rock this beauty in the warmer months with bare legs and your favourite summer wedge or sandal.

The Boot
‘Winter boots’ is a bit of a blanket term and as soon as it’s mentioned at the turn of the season it sparks panic across the high street with everyone trying to find the perfect pair! Well we have the perfect pick of trans-seasonal boots that will ensure your strut has an added touch of smugness and sass all year round! The Hudson Mirla suede tan boot (was £150, Now £90) will be your saviour month after month. When the frost starts to thaw, tan brings a fresh look and these beauties will look great with ditzy summer dresses, white jeans and lighter denim. While there’s still a chill in the air, team with the MINKPINK teddy bear coat for neutral luxe.

The Trainer
Comfy kicks were the unwavering trend of 2016 and they’re not going anyway in the year ahead. We’ve fallen back in love with the shoe that previously only made an appearance on the treadmill, so much so that we’re channelling them with smart looks and even work wear.- who’d have thought it?!  Veja is our coveted trainer brand in store and what’s even better than the brand’s dreamy designs is their ethical credentials. Whether you love the metallic look, classic white kicks or a bit of colour, there’s a trio of dreamy trainers in store that all have a rather seductive sale ticket attached!

Pencil Power
A pencil skirt is a must-have in every woman’s sartorial stake hold and whether it’s for work or play it’s a wardrobe classic that you’ll wear forever. Denim is an ideal solution to the dilemma of mid-season and the MINKPINK long line denim skirt is a timeless classic.  Hitting the mid-calf, this beauty creates an oh so sexy silhouette that can be re-worked in a variety of ways. Balance proportions and team with loose-fitting sweat like the Scotch and Soda embroidered sweater for a casual day time look or pair with the MINKPINK military shirt for a dressier vibe.

There is so much fabness in the mighty WSd sale so head to HQ to take a closer look!

Whether you choose slippers or heels tonight, have a truly wonderful New Year’s Eve!

Happy New Year beauties!
