The Best Black Friday Buys


by Marie Kelly
24th Nov 2017

It’s Black Friday, which means it’s time to splurge a little. Here are four smart buys perfect for women who want their wardrobes to work as hard as they do.

Perfect for going from desk to dinner this party season, this open-back top has a little of Roland Mouret about it. Wear over a polo neck to the office, then on it’s own for evening. Pair it with some cigarette pants for a sexy but understated look.

Flowing top with bow, €7.99 (reduced from €15.99) at Zara

Velvet is the texture of the season, but it always adds character and festive charm to a Christmas outfit. I love the subtlety of this velvet blazer. It’s actually a deep shade of aubergine, but in some lights it will appear almost black. It’s a good option for anyone who is tentative about wearing earthy shades.

I can never own enough cardigans, so I’m always on the lookout at sale time. Spanish online retailer Bimba Y Lola is a great option if you’re looking for something a little bit different. I love this oversized cardigan. I’ll wear it as a coat to add texture to denim and leather.

Long three-coloured jacket, €117 (reduced from €185) at bimbaylola.com

This boho-style Maje dress reminds me of Isabel Marant’s AW17 collection. I love the modernity of the asymmetric hem, and the fact that it has long sleeves, which makes it a practical year-round piece. This would look stunning worn with the velvet blazer featured above.
