When it comes to top boutiques, they don’t get much better than award-winning The Dressing Room, St Albans but as we’re not all a stones throw from Hertfordshire, the great news is they have a fab online store stocking covetable brands including Twist & Tango, Becksondergaard, J Brand and Ash.
I had a sneak peek at the virtual sale rails before the prices officially dropped and picked out my top 3 essentials; those pieces which will have wardrobe staying power, long beyond the winter sales. Look for staples and classics to complement or update your existing outfits, rather than those wear-me-now get bored-of-me-soon trend-led pieces to take full advantage of discounted prices on the higher end brands. The good news? The Dressing Room’s sale is now on! So go, go, go, to bag your online bargains here.
Top 3 sales picks from The Dressing Room St Albans: 1. The shirt; 2. The scarf; 3. The jean
1. Maison Labiche shirt
Denim shirts are pretty much a wardrobe staple these days but this sharp cotton shirt takes the trusty western-style casual shirt to a new level. Neat and fitted, it’s ideal for wearing under a sweater, with no fussy pockets to add bulk and bumps under a lightweight knit (great for avoiding those poking out poppers on the bust!). Wear now with layers and in spring/summer with fresh white jeans or printed tailored shorts.

Becksondergaard specialise in beautiful scarves and this large number is the ideal all-rounder for year-long wear and in a neutral tone with a varied check weave it adds just enough pattern to a simple outfit for a casual look and will tone down a brighter top.

3. Twist & Tango jeans
I’ve said it before but deep red jeans are an easy way to update your denim wardrobe, as versatile as blue denim but with bags more interest they’re a neutral that instantly ups your casual style game across seasons.
