How To Shop Smart On Black Friday (and Cyber Monday)

Brace yourselves… Black Friday is coming. And you know what that means? This season’s trend-led clothing and accessories at a fraction of the price. Want to know how we’re shopping it for 2017? No problem. We’ve come up with a helpful, stress-free guide on how to tackle Black Friday, the smart way…

1. Know your sizeknwyoursize

Not sure of your size? Does it vary for different pieces? Go try on all of your favourite bits to save the dreaded returns process (or take a look at our Size Guide). You’ll be in and out of the stores in no time.

2. Start your wishlist  clueless

We recommend creating a Black Friday wishlist – whether it’s a Christmas party dress or a statement pair of boots you’ve had your eye on, note them down to cut out the browsing process.

3. Set a budgetbudget

As much as we’d love to spend our entire income on all of this season’s latest pieces, we’ve got bills to pay. Set yourself a realistic budget of how much you want to spend, and that way there might be room to go over if you’ve under-spent throughout the month…

4. Remember it’s not just one dayconfessions

Adrenaline rush? Want to buy EVERYTHING now? We suggest spreading out your shop over the weekend (and don’t forget Cyber Monday!) so that you don’t miss out.

5. Bring your girlfriends bringafriend

Black Friday just isn’t as fun alone. Go shopping with your girlfriends – that way, you can each own a department and get exactly what you’re looking for.
