I’ll be honest: I love a discount. Any chance to save a few pounds and my attention is truly piqued. But this also means I’ve fallen one too many times into the classic trap of buying something simply because it’s a “good deal”, only to end in a pile of returns or styles that sit in my wardrobe unworn. With Black Friday just next week and our inboxes filling up with discounts and deals aplenty, it can feel overwhelming to know where to look and what’s actually worth buying. Well, that’s where I come in.
As a seasoned shopper, I’ve perfected scanning the sales to ensure that I (and you) will show off our new wares whilst proudly declaring, “I got it for 20% off!” The key to sales shopping is focusing on styles that will truly serve your wardrobe and suit your personal style. If a fluoro yellow scarf isn’t your typical vibe, then no matter the discount, it will never earn its keep. Instead, I’ve learnt to hone in on the wardrobe staples that will bolster my daily outfit builds for years to come. Naturally, this Black Friday season, I’ve turned to my already full-to-the-brim wish list at Whistles.
