The best of the Black Friday sales |

As the festive season draws ever closer, the attention tends to turn to buying gifts for the festive season. We’ve highlighted some current and upcoming sales for you!

You can either pick up some pieces for your nearest and dearest, or treat yourself to a little something to wear for upcoming dinner events and parties.

Here are some wonderful items for sale from Nordstrom and other stores.

Winter boots

As the mercury levels continue to dip, a pair of great boots is always a stylish option to transition into fall and winter. Nordstrom has lots of boots on sale right now, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.

These boots are the perfect height to wear with your cropped pants and will keep you warm. They are waterproof too!

Trendy sneakers

Every closet needs at least one pair of sneakers for day-to-day wear and running errands. These sneakers from Vince Cantara with 33% off come in three colors. My favorite is the burgundy, which is one of the key color trends for fall 2018.

A winter coat

If you haven’t bought your winter coat yet, now could definitely be the time to do so. Plaid is still proving to be a big trend this season, and there is 50% of this Halogen plaid coat, bringing it down to $129.49.

A designer bargain

If you don’t usually treat yourself to designer pieces, but you’ve always longed to own something from a certain designer, the sales could be the ideal time.

The key, I think, is to opt for a piece which is classic so that you will wear it for many years to come. DVF’s wrap styles, for example, tend to be permanently on trend. Plus, the stripes here have a slight Missoni feel about them.

I’d wear with jeans this season, but I can also imagine being able to wear this during summer with wide-legged white pants.

Comfy AND stylish strappy shoes

Flat shoes have never been so on-trend. You can definitely wear this Eileen Fisher ankle strap style for both daytime and evening. As well as classic black, there are burgundy and metallic options.

A metallic tote

It can be hard to budget for a branded bag, which is why it’s so nice to be able to take advantage of sale prices. This metallic Tory Burch tote, which has 33% off, will add instant style to any outfit.

A leather satchel

Another classic bag I love is this burgundy satchel by Kate Spade, which has 40% off. It comes in a beautiful plum color as well as black and tan.

Polka dot shirt

Polka dots, like leopard print, are one of those patterns which never go out of style. Marilyn Monroe loved them, so you’re definitely in good company if you decide to invest in some polka dots during the Black Friday sales.

This 1901 polka dot shirt comes in white or red and will go beautifully with jeans to give your casual wear some oomph.

A cosy sweater with a twist

This sweater from Vince with 40% off  is ideal for layering. A classic ribbed style is given an extra twist thanks to the overlapping panels at the front.


Well-fitting jeans

If you’re looking for a classic pair of jeans which you can wear year-after-year, Paige is a good go-to brand. These bootcut jeans will be a good base for so many outfits.
