8 Investment Pieces Worth Looking For In The Black Friday Sales

Black Friday offers? They’re less about bargains, more about wardrobe future-proofing. It’s time to reexamine your approach to sales shopping …

Shopping the sales can often feel like a case of ‘personal besting’: we get caught up in trying to find the most jaw-dropping reductions, the biggest brand names, the It pieces that sparkle. However, as we’ve all learned at some point, it doesn’t always pay off. And, when you come down from the post-sale high, you’re left with pieces you don’t really need, want or – sometimes – like. Sound familiar? We’re guilty of it, too. So often those perceived ‘bargains’ end up being regifts or pieces we trade online.

If we can offer a word of advice for shopping the Black Friday sales it’s this: look for basics. It may seem boring, hell even downright irresponsible, when there’s such an amount of glitz and print in our sale feeds, but trust us, it’s the smart move. Now’s the time to nab quality clothes you can wear on repeat. We’re talking wool coats, cashmere jumpers, a great white T-shirt, a staple pair of boots, a trusty shape of denim that you always buy. These are the pieces you’ll be grateful for when you get great cost-per-wear and the compliments come flooding in. We’ve searched the sales to make an edit of staples that not only have great reductions, but will pay dividends for seasons to come.
