Style Counsel: sale of the season.

Byline: CLAIRE SHIELLS

WILL you really want to wear that zebra-print pea coat come March? Is a pencil skirt a smart sale buy?

Tempting as they may be, bargains are only bargains if the all- important pound-per-wear guide stacks up. Follow our guide to what's worth snapping up, and what's not, during the coming sales.DObuy modern classics - and always buy the very best you can afford.

Beautiful Lingerie: Expensive at full price. Exquisite lingerie never goes out of fashion and is a great sale option.

Cashmere: Opt for fitted twin-sets in neutral colours. You'll never regret it.

Sheepskin: An edge-to-edge duster coat, a short gilet. There's always room in your wardrobe for the real thing.

Tailored coats: They NEVER go out of fashion - a good coat can see you through three seasons.

Avoid high fashion looks such as glittery tweeds. Instead look for twills, cashmere mixes and defined, classic cuts.

Pencil skirts: Much more sexy and stylish than the micro-mini.

Look for neutral shades that will fit into your working wardrobe, or a lightweight silk version with a flirty hem for evening.

You can wear one with whatever heels the new season dictates.

Knee-high black boots: You can wear them with anything, from trousers to pencil skirts.

Buy the softest leather you can afford and stick with a medium heel. Very nice.
