As Black Friday rolls around again, this year's November 27 sales are likely to be bigger than ever, especially in Australia. While we're never fans of frenzy sales which support mass consumerism and more often than not, contribute to the impending doom of our already fragile climate, Black Friday can be a great opportunity to purchase pieces for your forever wardrobe at a discounted price - which, especially after COVID-19 has left many of us in financial hardship, is never an unwelcome thing. Our motto is to use Black Friday as an opportunity to purchase enduring pieces that you've perhaps had your eye on for a few months, in the interest in cultivating a wardrobe where everything feels special and wearable.
In its purest of forms, Black Friday originated as is the Friday after Thanksgiving where US brands and retailers offer substantial discounts on their offerings. The shopping event originated in the US, but because of the sheer volume of sales - and of course, the digital age - the event has spanned over the entire globe, meaning the sales to hit Australia on November 27 are set to be featuring all kinds of undeniably sweet deals.
This year, we've got our eyes closely on fashion sales, and we're anticipating that the deals will be some of the biggest of the year. From large online retailers to smaller, more independently-owned labels, you'll be sure to find a few pieces to add to your wardrobe, especially with summer ahead. With this in mind, we've crafted a carefully curated edit of items, sales, and specific pieces to make your shopping experience a little easier this year.
