It’s well documented that I’m a huge fan of Arket. As one of my favourites brands that I’ve shopped for years, it’s not unusual for me to place at least a couple of orders a year, though with the AUD being weak against the USD recently, I only placed my first order for 2023 a few weeks ago (right before the sale kicked off… go figure). For my fellow Aussies, if you’re shopping from Arket, you have to pay in USD, so the foreign exchange rate plays a huge factor in the decision making process. At the time I placed my order, I took advantage of a blanket 15% off sale.
One of the standout pieces of my order is this shawl collar jacket that is now 40% off. The style plays to my minimal aesthetic tendencies, and it’s a modern take on a short trench coat (one of my favourite styles is also from Arket) with its relaxed double breasted silhouette and the fluid (but weighty) fabric. The jacket also comes in black, which is also 40% off.
Here’s a selection of my top picks from Arket’s sale:
Milano-Knit Cotton Jumper – 30% off
There’s a reason why they keep releasing this style in a heap of colour-ways. It’s exceptional quality – a tightly woven milano rib knit made from heavyweight cotton. I’ve had my version for a couple of years and it is one of the dressier knits in my wardrobe.
Drawstring Tote Bag – 30% off
This leather drawstring bag has a similar aesthetic to the Loewe Flamenco Bag with the way that it cinches closed.
Suede Crossbody Bag – 30% off
Another great bag that’s part of the sale is this suede crossbody bag that looks very similar to the Acne Studios Musubi Bag.
Linen-Cotton Jacket – 30% off
I’m kicking this off with the black version of the jacket featured in the photos above. I appreciate the shawl collar is a love it or hate it proposition, but I personally think it’s very chic and sophisticated. As is the case with the short trench coat that I own from Arket in both beige and black, I can see myself adding this to my collection too.
Linen Cotton Trenchcoat – 30% off
Arket’s version of this classic wardrobe staple uses their premium cotton linen blend which I own in both the short trench coat and the shawl collared jacket. This trench has an oversized silhouette which works perfectly in this soft and weighty fabric mix, which in my opinion, gets better with wear.
Crossover Detail Blazer – 30% off
A twist on a classic with this crossover detail at the back. The literal definition of business at the front, (subdued) party at the back.
Linen Shirt – 30% off
Arket’s linen always gets a good wrap and their classic linen shirt is one of their signature items that is released in a slew of different colours each year. The shirt is cut to a relaxed fit, making it an ideal summer staple – their pink version is currently on sale!
Relaxed Poplin Shirt – 41% off
Another signature shirt that’s part of the sale is their relaxed poplin shirt – this copper tone is a catchy 41% off.
Suede Loafers – 30% off
My Gucci loafers remain one of my most worn pairs of shoes. I’d love to add a light taupe pair to my wardrobe – these are verrrry tempting.
Rib-Knitted Midi Dress – 30% off
Nothing says summer like a slinky but comfy dress. One of the benefits of living in opposite seasons is scoring warm weather items on sale when spring has just started – huzzah!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
