Remember last August when supermarket giant Lidl announced its very first fashion range? Well, it was a total sell-out, and now the brand is launching its second offering to replenish our wardrobes at bargain prices. As from the 26th February, we can shop an entire outfit- that’s top, bottom, coat and shoes- for less than £30. We’re not kidding- prices start at just £2.99 for leggings, with the trench coat the most expenisve piece at £14.99. We know!
While the collection is stocked with easy basics and weekend staples, we’re particular fans of the Breton tops available for just £5.99. In three different colour combos, these striped beauties will be one of the hardest working items on your rails thanks to their timeless appeal and versatile nature. We’re talking Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face or just about any A-lister since. All our favourite style mavens are regularly spotted in theirs, from Olivia P to Alexa Chung, and now we can get in on the act for less than £10!
Now, we’re no mathematicians, but we’re pretty sure that’s a solid investment seeing as you can wear them all year round and for pretty much any occasion. Layer over polo necks, under dungarees or tucked-in to high-waisted jeans for day before pairing with a ballgown skirt or sharp cigarette pants for after-hours. See? The Breton really is your round-the-clock style saviour.
As well as these super staples, Lidl has also introduced lingerie into the mix, with pretty matching sets costing only £7.98 each. We’d say that’s a sure-fire steal. We’re already counting down the days until our Breton credentials look set to skyrocket, but our insiders at the brand told us: “Last year, items flew off the shelves within days of going on sale so we’d advise customers to get down to stores to snap up a bargain quick!” We have been warned. Let the Breton frenzy commence!
