Today is Black Friday, which means we have officially entered sale season. And let’s get real here: Thanksgiving is great and all — you get to stuff yourself full with turkey and all the fixin’s while being surrounded by friends and family — but we’re here for the sales. And Black Friday isn’t even just for friday anymore; these sales are a week-long, even month-long, shopping extravaganza. And when it comes to fashion, especially designer fashion at incredible discounts, we got you covered. Here are five of the best sales to shop this Black Friday:
The Outnet: This online designer outlet spot already has crazy deals on fashions inherited from its sister site, Net-a-porter. But The Outnet took that one step further, and added another 50% off the already discounted designer goods for its quarterly clearance sale. However, you need to have a (free) account on the site to shop clearance items, which are final sale and non-returnable.
Fivestory: This store is known for their perfectly curated designer goods and for managing to wrangle every It-brand known to man onto their roster. And for Black Friday week, the cult retailer is offering up to 40% both in-store and online.
Yoox: This Italian site has an exhaustively comprehensive list of designers, including both the classics, like Prada and Saint Laurent, and the hard-to-find, like Attico and Fausto Puglisi. They also stock pieces from past seasons, so if you missed your chance to buy your dream shoes, Yoox is a good place to check. The deals here include up to 60% off select designers, an extra 50% off new to sale and an extra 15% off all orders.
Matches Fashion: This London-based luxury etailer is getting in on the American holiday spirit and offering customers up to 50% off their edit of designer apparel, including Balenciaga, Isabel Marant and Fendi.
The Real Real: This online luxury consignment behemoth is the answer for those amongst us who love designer clothes but can’t afford to buy it retail. And for Black Friday, the discounts just got deeper, with up to 70% off recently discounted items, and a special edit of Black Friday designer goods.
