It’s official. The Black Friday Shopbop sale is here – 2 days in advance! This sale is one of my favorites of the holiday season, with 20-30% off all full-priced merch (depending on how much you spend), plus 100s of additional items that are already deeply discounted. And the cherry on top? You receive that 20-30% discount on all sale items too. Woohoo! Just use code MORE17 at checkout. The only downside is that sizes can sell out rather quickly, so time is (sort of) of the essence. (They do re-stock when possible.)
Moving on. I scoured the sale for all the best finds (no joke – it took hours upon hours upon hours of searching, not that I’m complaining!), so just sit back, relax and shop, shop, shop. I found steals on everything – clothes, shoes, winter accessories, hair accessories (hairbows and headbands are my happy place after all), hostess gifts/homewares, and more. The sale covers staples that never go on sale too, like Hunter rainboots and Ferragamo bow flats and low & block-heeled bow pumps. (I probably wear these in at least 20% of my posts, so I’m pretty excited.)
So, if you are looking to refresh your winter wardrobe (you know you deserve it!) or are looking for gifts for your bestie, your mom, or the hostess with the most-est, you’ve come to the right place. In fact, there are so many good finds that I opted to break my list down into bite-sized categories. Hopefully, this makes searching for what you are looking for a bit more manageable. As you will see, it’s pretty self-explanatory. 🙂 Okay, onto my Shopbop sale picks!
‘Tis the season of the holiday party, and these fab dresses will see you through it in style. From elegant looks to work events to hotsy-totsy cocktail attire (yes, I just said “hotsy-totsy” 😉 ), these picks will do the trick.
Everyday & Sweater Dresses
Is there anything better than a sweater dress? It might be one of my favorite winter looks. Pair it with tights and flats, heels, or booties for a fool-proof look that is always put-together. For variety, I also included different dress styles that will look perfectly in place at the office, happy hour or brunch.
It’s late fall with winter rapidly approaching. Whether you prefer oversized, fitted, cable-knit or cashmere, the bottom-line is you’ll be wearing sweaters for the better part of the next 5 months. These picks will help update your sweater stack, so you don’t get stuck in a sweater-rut.
Outerwear & Blazers
It’s almost that time of year when the weather people get to make a big deal about an impending nor’easter every other day. Coats keep you toasty in the face of said nor’easter (not to mention freezing rain, angry snow that blows sideways leaving you blind and thoroughly pelted, and – my favorite – “arctic wind”). Perhaps even more importantly, a great coat is the fastest way to pull off “chic” when you are actually wearing a ratty pajama top underneath it. So, if you are going to splurge on one thing, indulge in outerwear you truly love. (And these picks are all 30% off anyway so buying them is kind of like saving money…)
Winter Hats & Hair Accessories
Since I am not big on jewelry, I like to load up on pom-pom hats, ear warmers, hairpins, hair ribbons, and (most importantly) headbands – both the pretty ones and the ridiculously large apres ski-esque versions, especially if there is a bow involved. (Hint, hint to anyone who doesn’t know what to get me this holiday season. Just kidding! But not really.)
Scarves, Gloves & Mittens
Everyone needs at least one blanket scarf in their life. It works as a blanket when you are traveling and a scarf that you can wrap about 20 different ways when you are not traveling. (Hence the term “blanket scarf.”) Plus, since it is impossible to hold on to both gloves all winter, I included replacements that are smart, whimsical and just plain fun.
Shoes, Leather Goods & Handbags
I rounded up some gorgeous shoes at great prices, plus some pricier pieces that will get a ton of mileage. (I’m looking at you, Ferragamo Varina flats and Vara low-heeled pumps!)
Homewares & Hostess Gifts
Here are some fun doodads that are perfect for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, secret Santa or friends. I like the unexpected when it comes to these types of things, so this list includes a heavy dose of whimsy.
And that’s a wrap! With literally 1000s of options to peruse on the Shopbop site, I hope this sale guide makes your life a little easier. Happy shopping and happy holidays!
