  • Marie Claire is supported by its audience. When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn commission on some of the items you choose to buy.
  • There’s no denying the first week of January is a pretty bleak time, especially for those of us who didn’t ring in the New Year somewhere tropical (the pitfalls of Instagram scrolling). Whilst there’s not much to be done for going back to work, there are little things that can soften the blow.

    Like buying a new handbag. Without sounding too dramatic, Rebecca Bloomwood was onto something when she said the world becomes a better place when you shop.

    If your bank account is feeling the strain post Christmas, then the January sales are the perfect time to invest a designer piece, with many AW18 styles reduced by up to 50%. Don’t be fooled into thinking into thinking you’ll only be able to shop OTT fashion-forward handbags here, there are plenty of timeless options too.
