If you’re a fashion fan who takes style cues from your Instagram feed, you’ll know that over the past season there has been a slew of coveted items the world and his wife has been cooing over.
From Warehouse’s top-selling collaboration with much-loved British design label Shrimps to Topshop’s now iconic strappy midi heeled sandals (we want every single colour please) – there are a ton of items on every stylish woman’s wardrobe wishlist.
But with the summer sale season fully underway, this is the perfect opportunity to snap up some seriously IG-famous items at a fraction of the cost – if you’re quick.
Our advice is buy what you truly love and need in the sales. Don’t get swayed by dirt cheap prices if the only thing wearing it will be your wardrobe, in the long run you’ll just end up with a wasteful and unnecessary purchase.
So to get you inspired and help you find some incredible high street bargains, below we’ve selected some of our favourite Instagram inspired must-have fashion pieces that are now on sale. All you have to do is bag them before they sell out.
This badass dress is such a great piece for holiday season. The silk blend is ideal for keeping you cool in the hotter weather and the bold printed design works perfectly with a tan. It screams look at me without looking overdone. Take cues from Instagram fashionista Faye Ellaby (sister of blogger and Youtuber Megan Ellaby) and keep your accessories simple to let the dress do all the talking.

The universally flattering skirt we just cannot get enough. This slip style midi has been seen everywhere, with a million incarnations on the high street. A must regardless of season, this style skirt works just as well for your work wardrobe as it does worn casually. Go for a bright singular colour like fashion blogger Lucy Williams or go bold and pick up a printed version.

British based contemporary label Rixo is fast becoming every stylish woman’s go to for great quality feminine designs in fun, bold prints.

If you are based in the UK you will be well aware summer isn’t really summer . Which is why we are taking cues from StyleMemo aka Alexis Foreman and investing in an all year round classic staple like this incredible camel coloured Mac style coat from Uniqlo. So you’ll be style-ready regardless of the rain.

Kylie Jenner’s holiday squad snap with former BFF Jordyn Woods is the picture that launched a thousand dupes. There’s no denying neon is a massive trend for this season and there’s no better time to rock it than when you’re sun-kissed cavorting on the beach.
The Shrimps ‘Antonia’ beaded bag has been a must-have among fashionistas everywhere and the now iconic bag has inspired tons of similar design on the high street. If you’re ready to travel light, trade in your bulky tote this summer and opt for a ultra stylish beaded number instead.

Co-ord are a weakness for us here at Mirror Fashion HQ and this Whistles limited edition one is no exception. While the price tag does put this at the upper end of the spectrum when it comes to sale finds, we believe this two piece will offer plenty of wear as separate pieces that can be worn throughout the rest of the summer and into autumn and beyond.
DON’T buy something that isn’t the correct size. Chances are that if you vow to alter or slim into it, you won’t, and it’ll end up in the back of your wardrobe aka the clothing cemetery.
DON’T be swayed by passing trends. Here today, gone tomorrow.
DON’T shop without purpose. Best to plot out what you need rather than what catches your eye in the moment.
DO opt for free delivery options. Free click and collect anyone?
DON’T let the price sway you. A bargain may be a bargain, but what’s the point in forking out on that neon tutu just because it’s £2 in the sale?
