13 Pieces From The Monki Mid Season Sale That We've Already Added To Our Basket
If Fashion Month has left you with some serious style envy, then we’ve found something to satisfy your desires: the Monki 50% off sale. Prepare to fall in love with your wardrobe all over again…
With Paris Fashion Week soon drawing to a close, it’s time to find a new fashion focus to keep us occupied. And as much as we have loved obsessing over the latest street shots of fashion month attendees, we have to admit that it’s not exactly great for improving our own style satisfaction. Their inspirational wardrobes, though premium and perfectly put-together, can sometimes create some serious envy and, more often than not, leaves us feeling dissatisfied with everything hanging in our own. Add to that all the next season newness strutting down the runway, and you can see how the average person may feel a little despondent with their clothing choices by the end of it. Luckily, where one fashionable stretch comes to an end, another is just beginning: the mid-season sales - and they’re exactly what we need to give us back our style mojo.
With the right know-how (and shopping editors like us spending hours trawling the internet for the best mood-boosting bargain buys), it’s possible to track down the new season pieces that will set your hearts racing just as much as those spotted on your favourite street style stars, but without having to empty your bank accounts whilst you’re at it.
The one high-street sale we’re most impressed with right now? Hands down, it has to be Monki, whose 50% off mid-season sale is packed to the rafters with chic, ”Where did you get that?” pieces. Sure they might not be the luxury street styles you were lusting over from London to Milan, but there’s plenty of expensive-looking pieces you’d never think were high street (alongside some ultra-fun styles that are simply designed to make you happy).
We’re already eyeing up all things autumn in the edit with cosy knits, practical coats, long-sleeved midi dresses and timely trousers all begging to be added to our baskets. Highlights include bold printed shirt dresses (a Monki signature), safari-style jumpsuits, and colour pop denim that will brighten up the dreariest of days, as well as the simple but effective basics that will be form the basis of your autumn/winter wardrobe (we’re looking at you skinny roll necks!).
In need of a little post-fashion month pick-me-up? Scroll on for our edit of the very best pieces in the Monki mid-season sale.
Square neck, midi length and a print that can't be confined to one season: meet your new all-year-round favourite dress.
Bad weather doesn't have to mean boring clothes - and this abstract print shirt dress is all the proof we need.
The utility trend lives on for another season. We think this classic tie-waist safari style looks just as expensive as the styles we spotted at Paris - just add a structred culotte and mules to keep it luxe.
Big shouty logos can live up even the simplest look. We'll be adding this sisterhood slogan sweat to our usual blue straight leg jeans and a beige mac to bring it all to life.
Sort of like a suit, but way more casual and infinitely more fun- you'll get so much wear out of this burnt orange co-ord. Wear together with white trainers for the biggest impact, or break down into the jacket (it will look amazing with a stripe polo and jeans) or trousers (just add a tee) on their own.
Beige was a key trend both on and off the catwalk this season, and you don't have to fork out to ace the look. Wearing one tone all-over just oozes elegance, so use this ladylike midi skirt as a starting point, and pair with a matching colour knit or high neck.
Find top to toe neutrals too dull? This minimalist wrap dress - complete with talking-point line drawing detail - is sure to get you excited.
If you were sorry to say goodbye to your summer sandals, these statement pumps should more than ease the pain.
This was a summer bestseller, and we'll be hanging onto it for winter too. Just add leather military boots and a bucket hat to tide you over until spring.
Quite simply, another great sweater. In a mood-boosting shade of yellow, this Dreamer logo jumper will set your serotin levels soaring from the first wear.
Trust us when we say you're going to be living in skinny polos this season. Why? Because they're so incredibly easy - and, at this price, super affordable so you can stock up on multiple colours. The hot pink is our favourite though.
A dress that checks all our boxes right now: trending ruffle details, seasonal calf-length hem and a roomy tent silhouette. Crack out those military boots again and add a beret.
