Black Friday is the one time of the year when it’s entirely acceptable, if not mandatory, to buy a big-ticket holiday gift at a fraction of the full retail price. The annual shopping marathon never fails to inspire hoards of impassioned bargain hunters in search of a seriously major deal, but then again, perhaps nothing can compare to the payoff that comes with sourcing the perfect present for that certain style-conscious someone, or even yourself (because, hey, you’re worth it).
The best way to focus your sights, and by extension your shopping list, is to employ a little extra forethought on the purchasing front: Pinpoint the fashion items that will show you put in the effort. Those looking to demonstrate their understanding of the finer things in life are sure to appreciate Staud’s oversize mink fur coat, particularly given that it’s marked down by 30 percent. Kent’s organic silk box panty set promises to elevate one’s top drawer—with minimal damage to one’s bank account, for that matter. And for a shameless double dose of 24-karat flash, look no further than a pair of Anine Bing booties in metallic gold; they’re a festive pick-me-up that feels right in step with this season’s blinged-out mood, and a relatively modest credit limit.
