DON’T want to mug off your money, come summer?
Then it may be time to stock up now — and it’s all thanks to winter Love Island.
The current series has led retailers to slash prices across their ranges of swimwear and summer gear, as well as launching seasonal goods far earlier in the year.
Andy Barr, of price- tracking website alertr.co.uk, predicts prices for the same goods will likely surge again before the start of the next series, in June — so here’s what you may want to buy now to save later . . .
SPONSOR STEALS: Official sponsor isawitfirst.com currently has up to 50-80 per cent off everything — with many summery items, as worn by the Islanders, up for grabs including swimwear, summer dresses and sunglasses. I found a multiway orange swimsuit for just £20, usually £40.
NO BOOHOOS HERE: If you fancy a few beach cover-ups, then boohoo.com has you sorted, currently at bargain prices. Its holiday shop is chock full with warmer weather steals — I love the Rita Bandeau and Skirt Beach Co-Ord, perfect for a few sangrias by the pool, and it’s just £12.80 usually £16. It also has great savings of up to 20 per cent on summer shoes, such as espadrilles.
YOU LITTLE BEAUTY: If you’re looking for the perfect summer make-up, without busting your bank account or baggage allowance, head to boots.com. Benefit Minis are three for £27 (usually around £14.50 each). The Hoola is great for a “beach” bronze, but there are also mini highlighters and mascaras available.
SAVING: Up to £16.50
BAGGAGE BARGAINS: If your luggage has seen better days, you may be looking to swap your old suitcase for a new one — but this can be pricey. Head to Matalan where you can nab a medium-sized IT Luggage Luxury Hard Shell Suitcase for £35, usually £70.
