What to Buy: Black Friday

Black Friday is HERE! And now you’re left with the question – What the heck do I buy?? There’s so many seemingly great offers to sift through, but we’re here to tell you exactly what’s worth nabbing those deals on: The Luxury Basics and The Versatile Statement.

Luxury Basics

Let’s start with the luxury basics. They’re the pieces you may initially hesitate to buy due to a hefty price, but are trend-resistant quality pieces that will last for years. The goal is to find pieces that are well made and will continue giving back to your wardrobe season to season.

Here Are Some Great Basics We Love:

This is one of those pieces really worth splurging on. A belt may seem like a trivial accessory, but a good belt can elevate an outfit and emphasize figure flattering shapes (see our post: How To Wear a Waist Belt). Invest in a belt like this one that is both flexible and high quality for a wardrobe essential that will withstand the test of time.

Get the right ankle boot and have a trusted go-to shoe that you can pair with almost anything. This one from Madewell is available in some of the best basic colors!

The white sneaker is the must-have for owning casual style. Pair with dresses, jeans, and anything in-between! We love this sneaker from Y-3.

Leather jackets never go out of style. We love this one from ALLSAINTS for it’s classic silhouette!

Warm yourself up with the perfect cardigan. Jenni Kayne is great for quality pieces that are timeless AND cozy!

Versatile Statement Pieces

The versatile statement piece is a boot, bag, coat, etc. that speaks to the now in pattern or shape, but can be seamlessly inserted into your wardrobe and worn in many ways throughout the season. The idea is to keep your cost per wear in mind. If you can wear it over and over again, it’s likely worth it’s price tag!

Here Are Some Trend-Right Versatile Pieces We Love:


We love how these Loeffler Randall boots are both trend-right in shape AND in pattern, yet can also fit into a range of styles. Think pairing them with anything from dresses and skirts to wearing over your favorite skinny jeans! The wearability here is super high. Croc makes any outfit look oh-so expensive, after all.

You may think a good holiday dress can only be worn once, but we know you can find something better. Opt for a dress that’s elegant enough to play up with great heels and jewelry, but is simple enough to also dress down with a cardigan or blazer. We LOVE this Reformation dress (also available in petite sizes!) that is trend-right in color and has a modern slit. It’s elegant, but simple enough to wear over and over again.

Blazers still aren’t going anywhere and this one from Reiss a great starter piece. See our post on How to Wear the Oversized Blazer for more inspo on just how versatile this piece can be!

Colder weather is here – LAYER UP! Nod to trending waist cinching silhouettes by trying this Frankie Shop trench coat in cool cream or tan for easy wearability. 

Leather pants might as well be the jeans of Winter 2019. Pair these Rag & Bone faves with a cozy sweater and sneakers or ankle boots!
