Now, I don’t really do a lot of shopping, and I don’t feel like telling you to go shop amok all kinds of silly impuls buys.. But if you are going to dive into the sale oceans of Black Friday and the Cyber Weekend, here are some tips on how you can make buys that aren’t just impulsive ones, but which are responsible and will last in your wardrobe. Or, well, this is from my perspective on things that would last in my wardrobe, then you can interpret them to fit your style!
My rule is, though, if you’d never buy it on it’s original price, consider it reeeeaaaally hard before buying it on sale. Or just don’t do it.
A CLASSIC – GOOD JEANS
I’ve gotten more and more into jeans the last couple of years. Once I’d never put on a pair, but now I’m quite hooked on this denim fave. And these kinds of classics like jeans, which you know you’ll use a lot and keep in you wardrobe for years, are a good buy when getting into the sales. If I got the jeans above, I’m sure they’d last for years in my wardrobe and right now I’m really thinking of breaking my years long webshopping strike to get those wide paperbag waist jeans.
A CLASSIC – TRENDS THAT NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE
Multiple times during my trend analyses on the blog, I’ve been preaching that floral prints never will go out of style. And I truly do still believe that. Nature is such a classic motif and will last in your wardrobe for years, if you like nature print, that is. So are you a sucker for trends, go after one of those classics that’ll always be in style!
A CLASSIC – IN YOUR WARDROBE
I love yellow. And I’m sure that love will never end. So I did this little yellow collage to illustrate that making a responsible sale buy during the sale craze, it’s a good idea to look at your wardrobe now and figure out what you love to wear. If you, like me, love yellow or if silk shirts are your wardrobe classic, shop with that in mind. Then you’ll be sure to keep that item for much longer!
THE SUSTAINABLE CHOICE
If you really can’t keep from doing impulse buys this weekend, try to go to places that help you shop responsibly. Asks has their Eco Edit and Agurk, who make GOTS certified organic cotton styles has a sale today. So the possibilities to shop recycled or organic materials are definitely there during this weekends sale – keep that in mind!
