SAVVY SALES TALK
■ Final markdown sales are often a jumble of left-over sizes, but don’t be put off. If you find a bargain that’s slightly bigger, remember most dry-cleaners offer an alteration service. ■ Use the sales as an opportunity to buy investment pieces at reasonable prices. Go for classic, rather than trendled styles, which won’t date. ■ Avoid being tempted by anything too seasonal – unless you’re heading on holiday for a month you don’t need to buy five pairs of shorts!
