[purchase/affiliate/ad] I’m lucky to have a Jigsaw shop both locally and at Charing Cross where my train goes into if I need to go into town. Last week I had a quick meeting and on the way back stopped in the store, inevitably leaving with the most lovely top that I know I will wear and wear. It’s in the main picture and coming up below.
The strange thing about it is it’s black in some lights and navy in other lights – the colour is called ‘Slate’ on the website, so we’re no nearer knowing quite what it’s meant to be. I wear very little navy but am nonetheless delighted with it – it’s such a ‘me’ kind of top – nice and loose, floaty and two simple tiers in the design. It’s not fussy but it is exactly the sort of top I know I can put on when the weather is a bit warmer and be happy all day. I get self conscious about my arms from time to time (less so after hundreds of planks in yoga) so this does a great job of covering up (for those low confidence days) while being just a whisp of fabric to stay cool. The best bargains, I am sure, are the thinking ahead ones. It’s reduced from £110 to £44 in sizes 6-16 HERE. I’m wearing a size 12 and it’s exactly right.
Other tops that caught my eye are these two – the Graphic Poppy Wrap Top (green) sums up one of my fashion envies – people who can keep a wrap top in place. Any I’ve ever owned always seemed to wander so my cleavage was always either inappropriate or lopsided and heaven help anyone if I leaned forwards. However, whether it’s a carefully placed safety pin or some genetic magic, I’m always envious of anyone who can wear them well. This is £33 from £110 HERE and a little bit of early spring colour helped by a button fastening that holds the wrap detail in place. The silky Blue Cheetah Print is much more my comfort zone – I’m still mulling it over but what an easy wear! Work zoom, dinners – or even snazzing up your jeans and boots. It’s still available in 6, 8, 10 and 16 HERE. It’s £60 from £120. Loving the use of older models on the website, by the way, although realise there is a lack of size diversity.
Even though I now have a grey cashmere hoodie (wearing it right now, actually), above right is Jigsaw’s version in a rib texture cashmere. Pretty much like wearing a cloud and all the better for being reduced from £140 to £98 HERE. Sizes left are XS and L – I would personally take an L because these things are all the better for being sloppy and oversized. Below it, in the picture, is the Slouchy Rib Tie Cardigan in navy (grrr!) which is a wear-anywhere-even-in-bed kind of item that’s very now and immediately conjours up a sofa afternoon. It’s available in XS, S, M and L and is reduced from £165 to £82. Finally, the collared ribbed sweater in navy or calico – I LOVE a collared sweater. For my own taste, I like them looser than this but they’re such an elevation on sweater style while keeping you snug as a bug. It goes up to XXL from XS and all are still in stock. If you’ve ventured into flared jeans again, this is your perfect match, but it’s equally at home with a floaty skirt or leather (ish) skinnies. It’s £66 from £110 HERE in the navy, and full price in calico. I have no idea why.
This is probably the easiest thing you’ll ever wear. I love this style of shirt in a loose boxy cut that you shove on over jeans and flip flops – they never don’t look effortless. This is a pale lilac shade (there is a sage green) and again, if you can forward to spring and summer, it’s an absolute win. It’s in a viscose sateen so there’s a sheen to it and is reduced from £90 to £36. All sizes are still available HERE.
Finally, a quick look at accessories for any last minute gifting – Jigsaw purses and clutches have been my go-to gifts for girlfriends (I think everyone has had one so I can’t do it any more!). We still need coin-purses for parking and trolleys so the circular versions in blue, brown or silver are perfect at £18 each instead of £30 (stash them in the birthday present cupboard!) HERE. The wristlet clutches too are a bargain at £31 instead of £45 – I’ve been unimaginative in my screen-grabbing here because there are six colours. Find them HERE. It’s unusual for Jigsaw to have a pre-Christmas sale – usually they are the last store on the street to go into sale. I remember hanging on to my Christmas money with difficulty waiting for it. There are SO many bargains, it’s worth spending some time on the site and as I said, if you can shop for next season rather than this one, there are even more. Non affiliate link is HERE.

Our Jigsaw has sadly closed down, but I used to love going in at sales time. That ribbed collared sweater is gorgeous. Not so sure with my lockdown lard still on me though!!! Your top is beautiful. Looks so stylish without trying.
Thank you! There are some gorgeous things – just effortless stuff on the whole.
I was all ready to order something when I found out they no longer deliver to the EU.
This is the first time I’ve come across this and sincerely hope other online stores don’t follow suit.
Oh that’s a shame.. I didn’t notice that either x
Thanks Jane. I love the Jigsaw sale. I do buy ahead. It’s well worth it, lovely silk shirts, cotton and linen jumpers………. I usually do well. I’m off to have a look. You do really suit the top BTW.
Thanks Lynn – yes, I think this year it’s going to pay off well to shop a season ahead.
