It is that time of the year again where we don our battle suits – we’re talking about shopping bags under our arms, credit cards in our hands, and brisk-walking friendly sneakers on our feet.
To conquer the labyrinth that is IMM and an intense GSS crowd, we’ve narrowed down ten stylish items (that are equally irresistible because of their steep discounts) that caught our eye so that you can strategically plan your shopping trip and get them too.
And trust us, the only thing as massive as the outlet mall is the GSS discounts happening right now till the weekend.
We can never get enough of Issey Miyake’s pleated garments. Mostly because they’re lightweight, and can be folded to a small size while remaining wrinkle-free. Pair with a white pair of sneakers for a chic and quick work outfit.
Issey Miyake pleated dress, $590 before discount, $236 after discount.
Available at Club 21 outlet store #01-123
Turn up for a work meeting in this vibrant structured brocade blazer and you’re sure to turn heads too. It almost puts stiff black blazers to shame, and we can’t believe it’s going for just a quarter of its original price.
Phillip Lim blazer, $1,290 before discount, $321.30 after discount.
Available at Club 21 outlet store #01-12
Sometimes we just want to feel the wind in our trail and the sand between our toes. So throw on this earthy kaftan with gorgeous gold beadings. It’s going to make you feel like a queen if you take it on holiday.
British India kaftan, $479 before discount, $143.70 after discount.
It’s been a hot minute, but we’re still very much into the silky Japanese-esque embroidered bomber jackets. Try swapping out your usual blazer or cardigan for this pink number on casual Fridays. Going for only nearly a third of its original price – we say grab it while stocks last.
Coach jacket, $1,190 before discount, $450 after discount.
Available at Coach outlet store #02-08
Big floppy straw bags might be all the rage but something about this boxy camel piece is calling out to us. We’re thinking of massive cat-eye shades, a plain white oversized tee, denim cut-offs and some over-the-top lace-up sandals – how about that?
Michael Kors bag, $579 before discount, $299 after discount.
When we see the little gems, tassels and a simple slipper cut, these are great for weekend activities. Kick these off to run in the sand at Sentosa, and slip them back on later to grab a cocktail at the bar. And the best part is that it’s going for nearly a third of its original price.
Kate spade sandals, $210 before discount, $84 after discount.
