Have you put a freeze on your finances this February? For those feeling the chill of post-Christmas credit card bills, it’s still possible to indulge in a bit of retail therapy to dispel the winter gloom – you just have to know where to find a bargain.
To help you stick to your budget, we’ve picked out some ultra-affordable fashion pieces from our retail partners, as well as some feel good beauty buys for a smoother transition into spring. All are available to click & collect to your nearest CollectPlus store.
If you’re feeling a bit under the weather at the moment, a vibrant accessory can be an easy way to cheer up a dull day. We love this striped scarf from the V by Very range, which would look great teamed with some dark denim or neutral workwear.
Get it at Very (£15)
Embroidery is all the rage again this season, and for those who want to be able to pick this trend up and put it down at whim, this cute clutch from River Island is just the thing – affordable fashion at its finest.

If your workwear wardrobe is feeling a little scruffy and uncared for, a smart new jacket can make all the difference. For those looking to spruce up the day-to-day on a budget we recommend this stylish boyfriend blazer, which will add flair to your essentials.

Cropped trousers are a great transitional item that you can wear on those unseasonably warm days or during the transition into spring. ASOS has nailed the look with this khaki style, which combines one of the season’s biggest silhouettes with a staple shade that will match up nicely with monochromes and bold colours alike.

Go for gingham with a flirty frill to cheer up those dull winter days. We love this playful peplum top that teams up nicely with washed denim for a fun weekend look.

Clinique’s luxe beauty products don’t generally make it into round-ups of budget items, so we’re thrilled to include this limited edition Crayola Chubby Stick which will add a playful twist to every day. Awaken the big kid in you with this fun and affordable treat for your cosmetic case.
Get it at John Lewis (£17.50)
Need to chill out? There’s nothing like a warm bath at the end of a chilly day, and lavender is known to relax and relieve the senses. L’Occitane’s range of Provencal beauty buys is available with CollectPlus click & collect, including this evocative lavender bubble bath.

Finally, a treat for your feet that will add a welcome splash of colour to your winter wardrobe, morphing nicely into a spring essential. We think these pointed-toe slingbacks from Mango are a bit of a steal.
