We’re almost to my favorite holiday… Black Friday! (I kid, I kid) but I do love a good shopping day trip especially when there are mega sales and festive holiday spirit galore! Don’t let the day get cut short by not wearing the right things. Here are few tips for dressing for Black Friday.
1. Start With The Right Shoes
If your feet are miserable you are miserable. It’s that simple. So wear something walkable, comfortable and warm. A good riding boot/flat boot is always a good choice or a bootie with a thick low heel like these burgundy ones from mark.
2. Dress in Layers
You’re going to go from cold to warm to hot so dress in layers that you can easily strip off. I like wearing a open front cardi sweater because for me it’s the perfect not to hot not to cold layer. AND when you’re shopping especially on a busy day like black friday you’re not going to wait in line for fitting rooms. This way you can easily take it off and try on tops/sweaters/jackets even if you’re just getting an idea of how something runs as you gift hunt.
3. Bring The Right Jacket
Standing out in the lines (if you do such a thing) can get cold or start to rain/snow so a longer jacket with a hood is a good bet. Double bonus if it has a lot of pockets so you can stash things like change and your phone quickly.
4. Go Hands Free
Wear a cross body bag so you’re not bogged down by a big satchel. This will help keep you hands free for touching the merchandise and being an efficient shopper!
5. Bring a scarf and hair tie.
A scarf will just be that added warmth when you’re outside or when you’re just a bit to hot for your jacket. I know this seems super random but nothing is worse when you’re hairs all in your face when you’re fighting the shoppers and weather! These two accessories are your must haves.
