Luxury For Less: Everything We’re Eyeing Up In The MATCHES High Summer Sale

Move fast - there's up to 70% off JW Anderson, Jil Sander, Aje and more. Discover the 16 high summer staples and timeless classics on our editor's wishlist now.

In the past, I’ve been far too easily swayed by the thrill of a discount and, as such, I’ve really dialled down my sale shopping. However, I do allow myself some exceptions - particularly when it comes to luxury. My problem was always filling my wardrobe with cheaper, trend-led high street pieces that don’t have what it takes to go the distance. Luxury pieces, however, when chosen correctly, tend to have more staying power with premium fabrics and timeless shapes that prioritise longevity. And when it comes to finding investment styles that will genuinely elevate your wardrobe, there’s no sale I wait more patiently for than MATCHES – and, as per usual, I haven’t been disappointed.

The MATCHES high summer sale is now live and it’s offering up to 70% off timeless classics as well as the standout pieces that you will surely have been thinking about all summer long. This annual event presents the perfect occasion to shop around for those big investment buys for less than you’d usually expect to pay, be it that designer handbag you've been eyeing or those ridiculously great shoes you've been dreaming about.

Me personally? This isn’t my first rodeo, so I’ve been saving items to my wish list since the start of the new season in the hope they would find their way into sale - case in point, this La Double J Floral Silk Maxi Dress (perfect for this month’s holiday). The summer sale features a curated selection of renowned luxury brands, ranging from JW Anderson and Alexander McQueen to Chloe, alongside smaller labels I swear by like Aje. But what I’m most impressed by is the volume of pieces that feel ready to wear for next season too: think autumn ready knits, any-time-of-year Raey jeans and, dare I say, dresses and shoes that will look good on the dancefloor in December (hello Mach & Mach everything). 

But I can appreciate that’s a lot to navigate. So, whether you’re shopping for something to wear now, later, or are simply looking to top up your luxury staples, I've pulled together a concise edit of 16 pieces you'll never regret investing in below.
