I have literally been wearing the same t-shirts and sweatshirts for the last few months and I’m now ready to embrace spring with a statement top.

The key is not to have to fit a coat or jacket over the top, so I will wait until the weather improves and a cardigan or a denim jacket draped over the shoulders will do the trick.

Over the years I have bought and sold so many tops, and through the lens of my shop, I have seen all the brands up close.  So, now I only buy one amazing showstopper top, rather than hoovering up lots of ‘almost’ pieces.

What I have found is that a lot of them are mid-level brands, are completely over hyped and the reality of the item doesn’t match up to the Instagram imagery.

Therefore, I am always on the look out for sites to find those top end designer pieces for less.  I adore the Boutique 1 outlet, it’s there all year round and less subscribed than sites like The Outnet, therefore, you tend to find a wider range of more current pieces discounted at up to 80% off.

Below are just some of the items you can find.

Don’t forget to pop into Boutique 1 if you are in London.
