Whether you’re in a relationship or not, Singles’ Day – which falls on 11/11 – is one of fashion’s biggest and best discount-shopping days of the year.
Setting the stage for Black Friday and Cyber Monday later this month, it’s when online stores heavily discount thousands of items for one day only. And, ZALORA’s Singles’ Day sale promises to be epic.
Why? For starters, the sale runs across the whole weekend of 9 to 13 November. Offering shoppers discounts of up to 70 percent off, it will feature hip, high-street brands including River Island, Dorothy Perkins, Topshop, Forever New, Adidas, Nike and Ray-Ban (shown above). What’s more, the discounts could get even better, as additional flash sales of up to 25 percent are promised across the site!
How to get the best discounts
Shop for Special Events
The trick to nailing these discounts and making the most of the huge savings is to plan ahead. Think about any important events you have coming up – buying that special frock now could save you a fortune in the long run. This could also be a good time to buy your Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Chinese New Year or other festive outfits.
Stock Up on Staples
Also consider the pieces you wear all the time – workwear is probably some of your hardest working pieces in your wardrobe, so why not update them now even if you don’t wear them straightaway?
Look Out for Seasonal Steals
You might not need outerwear all the time, but a winter coat can be pricy purchase. This is why the best time to buy a winter coat – and other seasonal items – is during a sale. That way, you don’t have to feel guilty about parting with $200 on something you’ll wear for one week a year.
Load Up on Accessories
The great thing about (most) accessories? They last a long time. Go for timeless pieces that you can keep and wear for a year or much more.
Here are some pieces we recommend getting your hands on this sale season. Take a look at the full collection here.
