What to blow your tax return on according to a Fashion Editor

Let us help you splash the cash you got back on your trusty tax return - like a pro.

End of Financial Year signals the beginning of SALE SEASON. All caps necessary. It's the glorious time of year when we can dose up on the good stuff and go nuts buying every single thing from our online wish lists. You know, the stuff we've been accumulating and definitely need.

Nabbing last season's Chloe IT-bag or a pair of Isabel Marant sandals just got easy. Even better, it's the time to invest in new season arrivals before everyone else does. Here's our edit of the best bargains from our favourite retailers. Happy shopping!

If you want to know how much your tax return will be, you can use our handy table that estimates your return based on income.
