Save & Spend: End of Financial Year Savings

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Australia Post Car Insurance.


The end of financial year (mark June 30 in your calendar!) is coming up which in shopping-land translates to sale time as stores discount to move stock so that they don’t have to physically count it at year-end. In layman’s terms this means it’s a great time to refresh the wardrobe with some new clothes!

Responsible busichics might also use this time to make sure finances are in order. A trusted brand, Australia Post is now offering car insurance with a special 20% off deal for purchases made online before June 30. I’ve recently found that it’s worth comparing what you pay on car insurance every few years as your car depreciates in value. Getting a quote with Australia Post Car Insurance is fast and simple, taking around five minutes from start to finish. Find out just how easy it is for yourself, here.

So with the money you can save by getting a car insurance quote with Australia Post Car Insurance before June 30, you can afford to update your business chic wardrobe. Here’s a look at my pick of stylish buys available at the tip of your fingers:


Buy The Classics

business chic the classics basic outfit

  1. Ben Sherman Classic Trench was $199.95, now $139
  2. Country Road silky wool cardigan was $129, now $69.95
  3. Accessories from a selection at Oroton, 30-50% off.
  4. Witchery stretch wool pant was $129.95, now $79.95

Already have the basics? Expand your armoury of office outerwear with another timeless shade and style like this black number by Ben Sherman. Inspect your pieces closely to see whether they need to be updated, like a cardigan in an of-the-moment sport-luxe bomber style by Country Road in a luxurious fabrication. Scuffed shoes or scratched sunglasses could be replaced with new purchases from Oroton where the 30-50% saving has been applied to leather portfolios that are much smarter than the standard-issue office compendium.

Stylish shopper tip: Remember to buy pieces in styles and fabrics that you love and when in doubt, do as those chic Parisians do and buy black.


Purchase Smart Casual

Smart Casual sale items for work


  1. Obus Nomad Pullover was $239, now $191
  2. Leonard St. Asymmetrical Raincoat long was $200, now $100
  3. Limedrop Triangle Earrings were $59, now $35
  4. Chip Chop J’adore l/sleeve tee in white was $79, now $59

At the time of writing, the offering for Smart Casuals was decidedly fun. Afterall of all of the workplace dresscodes, it’s the Smart Casuals who are most able (and somewhat expected) to bring colour and interesting cuts and textures into the workplace. Fulfil expectations accordingly with playful knits, a coat the colour of the blue sky and all of the colours of the rainbow.

If you need something a little bit more formal, keep an eye out for what has been called the ‘cross-over’ or ‘wrap-around’ shirt which I styled in three different ways here I’ve spied the style at Country Road (currently still full-priced), Witchery (none available at the time of writing) and Target (website down for maintenance at the time of writing).

Stylish Shopper tip: Melburnites, Alice Euphemia’s 4-day-long Garage sale starts this Thursday.
