It used to be that you had to wait patiently through Thanksgiving dinner, throw on your coat and comfiest sneakers, and make your way to a nearby mall at the stroke of midnight, all for a chance to scoop up something at major discount. But now, many Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales start well before the holiday begins — and can be enjoyed without leaving your bed. Net-a-Porter's Black Friday sale is one of the best — with thousands of items already up to 50 percent off.
The sheer volume of options may be overwhelming, but do a little digging and you'll find rare gems that are typically tricky to get at a discount. Cult accessory brand By Far is usually sold out while items are still at full retail. Cecile Bahnsen's high-volume dresses became a break out street style staple over the summer and are a favorite player for 2020. And, while you may think of a sale as a time to finally spring for the wild statement piece you've been eyeing, it's also the ideal moment to stock up on your favorite staples, like Re/Done's supremely fitted jeans. In addition, there are the all-eyes-on-me party dresses you can buy now for your holiday events, and yes, practical workwear options too. I've cherry-picked 21 pieces that are now sitting in my cart, and really should be in yours too. Shop them now, before they're sold out completely.
