On the Run - Jigsaw sale buys

I just wanted to say a big "Thank You" to everyone who gave their opinion on the leather jackets featured in yesterday's post.  I found it really beneficial and would certainly do it again.  If anyone else out there has a similar kind of style query, please feel free to send photos through and I will happily post them so that others than comment.

I know that I keep wittering on about sale buys, so to those who have had enough - sorry.  The thing is, if I can help even one person find an amazing piece at a great price, which they would never have found on their own - I'm happy!

For those of you who have followed Style Guile for a while, you will know that I have been a big fan of Jigsaw for many years.  So it comes as no surprise that I eagerly await their sale, to see what they have on offer.

Having had a poorly little one this week, I didn't think that I would get an opportunity to take a closer look at the sale in person before going away. However, I had a small window this morning and I took full advantage of it - only narrowly missing a car parking ticket in the process.

Some of the items below I saw or tried on, whilst others are available on line only.  Quite a few pieces are from the A/W '11 stock but our local Birmingham store still had some in their stock room, so it's always worth asking.

So, here are the pieces which I thought were either a particularly good price, or would work well for the season ahead, or would be a great hard working piece for your wardrobe.  There are lots of other lovely pieces too but the reductions aren't always that great first time around - although it all helps!

Cashmere Jumper

This Pure Cashmere Cocoon Sweater has been reduced from £170 to £69.  The two other colours in which it comes are still priced at £99 but I really like this colour.  The bat wings obviously won't be as flattering for those ladies with curvy busts - but not everyone has one of those! You will either like the central seam or hate it.  I quite like it because it is a bit different.

Suede Skirt

As something slightly different, I thought that I would show this washed suede wrap drape skirt. Reduced from £249 to £98 it is a really good price and as suede is such a supportive fabric, it can work wonders for those with curvier figures - a bit like spanx but in a skirt.  Again, an either love it or hate it kind of idea, I know that after some ladies have owned one, they would never want to be without one again.

Jacquard Skirt

This Paisley Jacquard Skirt has been reduced from £110 to £69.  Paisley was a huge print trend this season and will continue into A/W '12 too. Jacquard and Brocade will also be huge and this skirt with its neat pencil shape will ensure that you are well ahead of the game.

Day time skirt

I always think that it is quite difficult to find a day time skirt which works well.  This trench coat tie skirt reduced from £99 to £69 fits the bill nicely.  It has a good length and with some fullness, it should flatter your shape, rather than add bulk to it. I tried this skirt on and although the 8 fitted perfectly on the waist, I preferred the extra length of the size 10 as it sat lower on my hips.  I could imagine wearing this now with wedges and a fine knit or silk shirt and then with tights, boots and a chunky cream jumper in the winter. 

Good solid pair of winter boots!

The sheepskin Eva boot was one of last year's style. However a style such as this will serve you for many years to come. Reduced from £289 to £169, the buckles on them are a nice nod to the equestrian trend which we are going to see so much of next season. Hard wearing and versatile, I would definitely be happy to invest in a pair of these.

Classic style winter boot

 This is the Jigsaw Luxury leather boot, reduced from £249 to £159. I love this classic style - elegant but not too high, it will work well for those who have a walk from the train station to work and the style won't date so they will last for years. The finish on them also makes them extra smart and stylish (with a limited need to polish them - always a bonus!)

Going out shirt

I love this sparkle cluster blouse  which is reduced from £139 to £69.  With so many of us wearing skinny jeans or trousers with heels for a night out, this top will create a lovely silhouette.  For anyone with a curvier bust, I would open a couple of the top buttons and put a lacy cami underneath, giving the illusion of a v-neck, which will be more flattering.  The floaty fabric should prevent it from being too maternity like and also being sheer, it will still be possible to see your silhouette through it which again, is more flattering.

Trench Coat

Unfortunately, this classic trench coat with belt which is reduced from £239 to £129, is only available on line in a 12 but I would imagine that there is still some stock left in store.  I like the colour and the fact that it isn't too long. With over £100 off, it's also a good saving.

I really liked the Jigsaw Jewellery this season so it's worth taking a browse if you are after a statement necklace or a chunky ring.

As Jigsaw has only recently gone into sale, there should be a futher round of reductions at some point, so it could be worth keeping your eye on a piece or two.  Deliveries over £100 are free at the moment but if an order is less than £100, try entering SUMMER43 as a promotional code and you should get free delivery. Hope that you have fun and please do let me know if you find anything lovely.


  1. I love the trench coat, the length looks perfect, I love the buttons & inner sleeve cuff, thought about chancing the 12 but having read the reviews I would definitely need the 14. Suede skirt & casual boots great too. No luck in my sizes. I would never have thought of Jigsaw before, sale prices more my budget but I'll def keep an eye out in future. Martina Walsh.

    1. Hi Martina - If you go into a store they will check to see where in the country has the pieces you like. It might involve a bit of ringing around on your part but it could be worth it. The Jigsaw at Bicester is always really well stocked too and is worth a visit if ever you are passing.

  2. I LOVE that going out blouse. Perfect.

  3. I used to shop religiously at Jigsaw when I was working full time but I haven't really been that enamoured in more recent times which I think is more to do with not working, different wardrobe requirements and a very different clothes budget now that I am a stay at home mum. I have been in this year and there have been a few items which have caught my eye but I couldn't justify at full price at the time. The sales certainly sweeten the deal though.

    1. Hi Sue - I know what you mean about differing wardrobe requirements/different clothing budget influencing how you look at a brand. Sales deffo help when it comes to those special pieces though don't they? Hope that you find a gem in there!

  4. I like the idea of the skirt you have shown being a bit like Spanx. I have a few Jigsaw skirts for work and find they are a great fit. I have a similar shirt in orange but haven't worn it yet, you know those things that you buy and think you will wear them but then don't...:p

    1. Hi Andress - so, how can we get your wearing your orange shirt then? With a lot of black or navy perhaps to tone it down? I remember my Jigsaw work clothes with great fondness!

    Beth, thank you for informing us all of the current Jigsaw sale. I have been on their website and I was surprised to find that they went up to a size 16. I am a 54 year old mother of four grown up children and I like to think I can still dress a bit trendy (gosh that does make me sound old, haha)but not mutton dressed as lamb. Your fashion combinations are an inspiration and I like the fact that some days you will admit to getting it wrong,well in your eyes. However I think you always look fab!!

    1. Hi Liverpool Lass - I have no doubt that you can dress a bit, or a lot, trendy! Jigsaw could be a great brand for you - I like the fact that they do classic items with a twist - no mutton going on there! Thank you for the positive comments re the blog - it's really kind of you.

  6. I also love Jigsaw but have not been so keen lately. They are beautiful clothes but I think their prices have really rocketed recently and the fabrics are getting finer (some items seem to not stand up to washing and develop small holes very quickly - especially knitwear and jersey).

    Still shop there but definitely wait for the sales in most cases.

  7. Being a big Jigsaw fan (have been for years and even with two kiddies now, this is still my favourite brand, just have to wait for the sales nowadays...). I also agree that the prices have definitely gone up in the last couple of years, but at least their sales start earlier now and the discounts are better than in the past. I was eagerly awaiting this year's summer sale - I actually have the trench coat tie skirt and agree that it's a wonderful piece for all seasons (wedges in summer, boots in winter) :-)
    I also really rate their bib front silk shirt (managed to get the light blue in the sale at a much more affordable price...). Last but not least the scarves are great (love the tasselled bobby scarves...). As you can see, I am a definitely a fan...
