ARKET Is Suddenly on Sale—Here Are 20 Pieces That Will Look Good for a Long Time

The secret is out. The new season is approaching, and the shops are filling with exciting autumnal pieces, so it’s the perfect time to start scouring the high street’s freshly stocked sale sections as pre-fall releases get marked down. At Who What Wear, we like to think of ourselves as sale-shopping aficionados, and rather than encouraging you to dive headfirst into discounts and to spend your cash on impulse purchases, we’ve taken the time to look through the sale sections of some of your favourite brands to find the pieces you’ll want to buy now but love forever.

Smart shopping isn’t about buying more—it’s about buying better. Right now, it doesn’t make much sense to stock up on summer dresses and sandals that will sit in the back of your wardrobe until next year. But thankfully, some shops make it easier than others by giving discounts on the kind of clothes we’re ready to wear now—think cosy knits, cold-weather coats, and winter boots. And nowhere does it better than ARKET.

We can always rely on ARKET’s well-curated collections to refresh our seasonal wardrobes, and while we’re still championing its versatile knitwear and unbeatable blazers, it’s about time we gave its equally impressive sale section some airtime. You’re guaranteed to find wardrobe necessities there for an exceptionally good price.

But will you have to trawl through thousands of items to get to the pieces you really need? No. We’ve done all of the digging for you. Consider this edit a rundown of all of the items you’ll want to wear this season—no filler allowed. So keep scrolling for the editor-approved sale buys from ARKET’s brand-new drop that will only add value to your autumn/winter wardrobe. Bargain hunters, assemble.

A wool coat is a wardrobe staple for good reason. If you invest in this one now, you’ll wear it for years to come.

Now this is how to make a puffer coat feel chic. 

Is there any better antidote for cold, grey mornings than wrapping up in a quilted duvet coat like this one?

We love this boxy, zip-up spin on the traditional Breton tee. The oversized fit is bang on trend.

Wondering how to do eveningwear and still stay warm? Add a blazer to this crochet tank top. All it needs is a pair of tailored trousers and a strappy heel—and presto.

Smart layering is key when it comes to transitional dressing, and if you’re still wearing the same light trench coat from summer, add a wool overshirt for a little extra warmth that isn’t stuffy.

The perfect blue shirt to wear under jumpers, knitted vests, cardigans, blazers and so much more.

The perfect jeans do exist, and you can find them on the high street. 

A smart trouser with the feel of tailoring but a comfortable stretch waistband? Sign us up. 

If blue denim isn’t your thing, these also come in black and just so happen to be the ideal length to make the most of this season’s ankle boots. 

Just because it’s autumn doesn’t mean you have to hang up your skirts. Just imagine this midi with a chunky black knit and leather loafers—a match made in heaven. 

You could have easily worn this all summer with a pair of sandals, but we like it just as much with a knee-high boot. 

Knit dresses are an autumn essential for those who want to look cool but keep warm while doing it. 

Ribbed knits are getting the A-list stamp of approval this season, and when they look this good, it’s easy to see why. 

You can always count on a well-tailored black dress to stand the test of time. 

Cheat the look of clever layering with this understated knit dress. 

The knee-high is everywhere from the runways to the high street right now, but opt for a boot that’s just as comfortable as it is fashionable. 

That’s right: They come in a luxe cream colourway, too, so the only decision you have to make is which one to buy. 

As soon as the temperatures suddenly dropped this month, there was nothing we wanted more than to slip into a pair of comfy socks and easy-to-wear loafers. Sorry, sandals.

It wouldn’t be right to overlook some of the best desk-to-dinner shoes we’ve seen in a while. Your feet deserve a treat.
