I know, I know. The Christmas break is now long gone and the bank account is, well, feeling last month’s festivities. But the beginning of January also marks the beginning of sale season. Those sneakers you’ve been eyeing off? On sale. A cool trend piece you’re eager to try? Also on sale. That investment suit you’ve been contemplating? Yes, you guessed it, it’s also on sale.

This month, online luxury retailer Mr Porter has launched its annual Autumn/Winter 2020 sale. Fear not if you hail from the southern hemisphere, there are plenty of summer staples. The promotion includes up to 60 per cent off marked items (a rise from a previous 50 percent) from the AW20 season across clothing, shoes and accessories from more than 500 top designer brands such as Burberry, Common Projects, Givenchy, Kingsman, Luis Morais, Missoni, Mr P., Neighborhood, Officine Générale, Rhude and more.

While it is tempting to let loose on the cheap price tag, it would only be fair to let you in on a few tips. Firstly, only shop your size – it will stop you from attempting to wear a shoe size to big or to small. Set yourself a budget. And don’t purchase something outlandish just because it’s on sale – ask yourself, will you wear it?
