Timeless essentials for summer to get on sale

Ready to hit the summer sales? Here are some timeless classics you might want to snap up.

With the summer sales starting in stores, along with back to school shopping, now can be a good time to grab some bargains. And not just things you might need for the rest of this summer, but things that you’ll enjoy for years to come.

But is it wise to buy items now in the sales? The answer is a resounding yes! If you have the money, it makes sense to stock up on a few timeless essentials for summer; things you’ll use and enjoy again and again.

Plus, if you can grab some timeless summer classic pieces at a bargain price now, you’ll have the ready to wear next summer. And won’t need to hit the shops when they’re full price.

With that in mind, whether you’re shopping in-store or online, there will be some great deals to be had. What are the best things to look out for? Here are some suggestions for timeless summer classics.

A blazer

If you want a jacket in summer for work, or for when it is warm but not that warm, then a blazer is a great option to go for.

You can dress a blazer up, along with a dress or a skirt and t-shirt, as well as wear it with jeans or jean shorts.

A light color makes it a great choice for summer, and it can be a way to give a nod to the monochrome trend. It can see you through to the fall too, as it can be layered up with sweaters and scarves.


When it starts to get sunny and warm, we can often forget where we have put our sunglasses. So it’s easy to simply grab a cheap pair off the shelf.

However, a good pair of sunglasses can be a wise investment, as they can be used all year round when it’s sunny. If you can find a pair that suits your face well, then it is worth holding onto them. Even better if you can get them at a bargain price in the sales!


In summer, life is pretty much always better in sandals and flip-flops, making them a timeless summer classic. Put it this way: you can pretty much guarantee that every summer you’ll be wearing sandals of some kind!

Choosing a pair like the ones on the SVD site can be a good idea, as you will want to choose something fairly neutral, so that they can be used year after year.

Don’t go for something too ‘out there’ in terms of style. Keep it fairly simple and it will mean that they become a timeless pair year after year. After all, you can pretty much guarantee that your feet aren’t going to grow any bigger.


Whether you’ve actually got an event to go to, or you just fancy putting on a beautiful dress to wear at home – or perhaps for a special date night – you can’t help but feel like a million dollars in a stunning party dress.

And the best time to buy a beautiful dress that will last you for years is in the sales. And not just summer dresses. If you’re lucky you’ll be able to snap up a bargain that will be suitable to wear all year round, at a fraction of its full recommended retail price.


You can’t go too far wrong with buying new swimwear when it goes on sale. Even if you haven’t got a trip planned, having something ready to use for any trips next summer can be a great idea.

Plus, there will always going to be opportunities to wear a one-piece or a bikini, whether you’re at home or on vacation, so you may as well pay less for one, if you need a new one. 


It is crazy to think about, but this year has just been flying by. And before we know it, the holidays will be here and holiday shopping will start.

But if you are able to get some gifs for people early, especially while they’re on sale, it can make the holiday season much more enjoyable, much less expensive, and much less stressful.

So there are a number of reasons why looking out for gifts to buy now can be a good idea, even in the summer. The same goes for birthday gifts, too. If you know you have some gifts for friends and family to buy coming up in the next few months, get start shopping now, while there’s a sale on.

This is just a starter list with a few common suggestions. You might have some must-have timeless classic pieces for your own wardrobe that you might want to source in the sales.
