The best thing about Christmas besides the food has to be the sales, hands down. Think about it – it’s an excellent way to while away a few hours whilst we’re at home, and an opportunity to gift ourselves all the presents to make up for the ones we didn’t find under the tree this year. Not to mention the strategic delivery in the first week of the new year to lessen the impact of those January blues. Beside the epic Christmas lunch, it’s the only thing we save ourselves for – and none so much as the Reiss sale. For men or women, Reiss are known for their winning combination of quality, variety and style so what better place to dress our ‘new year, new me’ mentality than there? Better still, Reiss have realised just how little people want to wait until Boxing Day for a bargain and have released their sale early this year, with up to 50% off all of their best bits starting right now.
Need a little help curating the sale? We’ve picked out the best Reiss pieces in the both the women’s and men’s sales so you don’t have to. Think of it as our little gift to you this festive season.
Reiss Always Has The Best Christmas Sale And Here’s The Proof
Men, women – rejoice! The Reiss sale is the best thing since sliced turkey, and it’s arrived early this year…
For The Men…
The Sweet Treat: The Colour Boost
Statement knits have had an excellent season and it’s easy to see why. After all, being winter, you were going to wear jumpers anyway – just wear them better. The Stormy stripe jumper adds a splash of colour to trans-seasonal dressing without ever feeling too much. The vibrancy will come in handy in January when you feel that extra boost to get through the month.
The Investment Piece: The Trusted Tailoring
Suits are expensive, this much we know. But when you get a good one that hugs the body in all the right places without ever pulling across the middle it’s worth its weight in gold. Reiss have a name for creating tailoring that lasts, and their discounted in-house tailoring service is a sure-fire way to ensure a Savile Row worthy fit. Engineered from pure wool woven, we’re particularly fond of the Bodium suit for a formal look with a playful feel. Wear as a complete set or pair the blazer with a casual shirt and jeans.
The 2019 Essential: The Double Breasted Blazer
Sorry streetwear fans, the SS19 men’s runways proved that the penchant for tailoring is as strong as the shapes. The main shape for the season was a little oversized and distinctly retro with broad shoulders and double-breasted details ruling the roost. Where 80’s styling proved popular, there’s no need to get that flash – this traditional blazer is enough of a nod to the trend without going overboard.
For The Women...
The Sweet Treat: The Need It Now Knit
Have you been outside? It’s cold, so we need a knit and we need it now! This buy-now-wear-now Keeley roll neck knit is crafted from a sumptuously soft fine merino-wool and is a sweet deal at under £100. Style it tucked into true blue boyfriend jeans with white boots, or layer over fancy midi length dresses and wear with trainers to give your party looks some extended wear.
The Investment Piece: The Spring Coat
Let’s face it – although we’re already thinking of spring, we are very in winter for the foreseeable. That means it’s going to be wet and cold, and a coat is going to be your best friend for a while yet. The Roma trench coat is the best of both worlds – it’s warm enough to see you through, but fresh and light enough for spring. We love the way the buttery soft leather gives a contemporary update to a wardrobe classic, and, whilst the price is a little higher that unusual.
The 2019 Essential: The Colour Pop Suit
Corduroy had a real moment in 2018, ditching its geography teacher rep and moving from geek to chic – and this shows little sign of slowing. Combine that with the 2019 trend for colourful women’s tailoring and you’ve got yourself a sale buy with serious legs (no really, check out the statement wide leg on the Carrie trousers – it’s excellent).
