For women's fashion.
While we love Thanksgiving, it’s common knowledge that the day after might just be one of the best days of the year to score some killer sales. While it’s possible to score big, be careful not to get caught up in the chaos and excitement as not every sale is really the best. Experts say this is a great time to purchase electronics and high end items, but other gifts such as sweaters and sneakers might actually get cheaper closer to the holidays! Want in on the shopping fun but are unwilling to wake up at 3am and lose some precious family time? You’re in luck; the following Monday, which is now known as Cyber Monday, provides some fantastic deals online!
While we’re sure our cult fashion favorites won’t lose their hefty price tags completely, these are the items that we’ll be on the look out for:
The Burberry Sandringham Slim Fit Trench Coat: regularly $1,795
Why we love it: This iconic coat has a rich military history which is reflected in the epaulettes on the shoulder, the gun flap fastens at the chest and a storm shield cover on the upper back. Made of tightly woven yet lightweight breathable cloth, the coat is protective against wind and rain. Made in England, this coat was originally designed by Thomas Burberry back in 1879! The Sandringham takes this classic coat and updates it slightly with a slimmer fit that nips in at the waist. The details and tradition of the coat, paired with the famous Burberry check, have landed this item on our must have list.
A blended Burberry scarf: regularly $395
Why we love it: These lightweight scarves look great paired with a classic trench or all on their own. Try the Check Wool Silk Scarf in Trench Check or The Check Wool Silk Gauze Scarf in Stone Check. No matter which material feels better to you (or which you can find a better deal for) you can’t lose!
Céline Leather Mini Luggage Tote: regularly $2,900 and up
Why we love it: It’s hard to go wrong with such a beautiful roomy structured tote. It looks great in almost every style and color from black pebbled leather to a pop of burgundy. Be wary though, Céline still doesn’t sell bags online and only certain stores sell them. (Call Barney’s or Nordstrom to see if the store near you carrie.s Céline or if you’re lucky enough to live in a big city, check there website. They have a few boutiques in Manhattan and other major cities as well as the Céline salon at Bergdorf Goodman in NY.)
Louboutin Stilettos: regularly $795- $845
Why we love them: They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts but when it comes to shoes it’s the bottom! There’s nothing more fashionable and recognizable then those red soles. For a great nude peep toe try Flo, which features a petite platform and comes in a range of “nudes” from light Lea to the darker Ada. Or opt for a classic pump such as the New Simple Pump which is sure to be your next go-to shoe.
Chanel Classic Flap Bag: regularly $4,900
Why we love it: Chanel is the epitome of fashion. It’s classic, timeless and only gets better with age. Some people literally purchase Chanel purses as investment pieces. With its quilted design, double C closure, and chain link handle, this Chanel bag goes with everything.
For men's fashion.
The phrase Black Friday was originally coined from a financial crisis that occurred in the US, in 1869. Its reference to the “kick-off” to the holiday shopping season frenzy didn’t come about until the 1960’s in Philadelphia. Now, everyone knows that Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and usually bedlam is let loose. Some associate it with excitement of hunting down the best bargains of the Holiday season and some see it as something to avoid like the Flu.
