How to Shop a Sample Sale
How Fashion Editors REALLY Shop The Sales
Find the bargain of the year with these sales secrets, straight from the shop-obsessed Marie Claire Fashion team.
Read and research
Snap up this month’s issue of Marie Claire and get the hottest scoop on new season trends. Swot up on the AW/13 trend report in our August issue before you hit the sales.
Top tip: Pink is a huge colour trend for autumn, snap up a blouse or invest in accessories to be one step ahead. Classics like stripes, polka dots, leather, tailoring and denim are always on-trend. Invest in pieces you will wear now and then layer up when summer is long gone.

Dress for the occasion
Whether shopping online or pounding the pavements for those Miu Miu platforms you have had your eye on all season, the only way to shop is comfortably. Cup of tea in hand, comfy chair and no distractions are all a must when browsing on your ipad. If searching in store is more your thing, before you leave the comfort of your home think about what you’re wearing. Easy flats: tick, bag with long strap across the body: tick, loose layers you can easily whip off in the changing room: tick.
P is for Plan
Take a good look at your wardrobe, get familiar with what is actually in there. Note down your favourite pieces and which designers or brands you like, then map out a route with these stores in mind. Sale shopping is all about speed. Scanning the rails and quickly nabbing that Helmut Lang dress is much easier if you’re already confident of the sizing and cut.
Keep calm and go on your own
Competitive shopping and distractions from friends are not what you need. This is the time to leave your shopping partner at home. Shopping at the sales can be enough of a frenzy as it is, so focus and go solo.
