Breeze through Black Friday with ease

 

Sale

 

Mark the date in your diary, Friday 24 November 2017 and don't miss out on bagging yourself some brilliant Black Friday bargains on all sorts of products, and just in time for Christmas. But while it is easy to just snatch and grab, especially when fighting the hordes of people who will also be shopping for bargains, it might be wise to take a step back and plan for your Black Friday shopping spree, so you can breeze through Black Friday with ease.

 

Whilst bargains and discounts might not have been released yet, many retailers have already confirmed that they will be participating in Black Friday sales, including Argos, Boots, GAME, and New Look.

 

Whether you're after this year's hottest toys, latest tech, this season's must-have fashions or homeware, the most important thing is to be prepared.

 

DO YOUR RESEARCH & BE REWARDED

 

It pays to be prepared on Black Friday and if you want to get the best deals then you have to be organised. Retailers last year started their Black Friday deals much earlier, and this year you will be lured by substantial discounts in a bid to persuade you to start your Christmas shopping early, so if you start to plan your spend a week in advance of the big day you are less likely to miss out.

 

  • Many retailers have Black Friday deals already online with more discounts coming in-store on the day itself. If you're after big-ticket gadgets such as televisions, laptops, cameras, smartphones, smartwatches, games consoles and tablets, be assured it will probably be discounted.
  • Sign up to store newsletters and follow your selected retailers them on Facebook and Twitter to make sure you get information on great deals as soon as they are announced.
  • If you feel like you're going to overspend set a budget and do your planning and price comparisons on-line first. If you do your research and pinpoint what products and models you want well in advance, it will save you time on the day when you'll have to act fast in-store.
  • Boost your savings by planning in advance how you are going to pay for your goods. Choose which cards you may use, whether it's a cashback credit card or you're collecting Avios, make sure you maximise on your spending by using the right card, and don't forget to take your store loyalty cards along with you too.

 

You may be overwhelmed by the discounts and items on offer, so don't lose sight of the items you actually want. Our hot tips for this year's Black Friday are toys and tech, and these are the hot ticket items to look out for.

 

 

TREAT THEM TO TOYS FOR LESS

 

Black Friday is probably the best time to get your toy shopping for Christmas out of the way, and save money too. For the kiddies 'My Little Pony' merchandise is huge this year as the new movie is released in time for Christmas, but there are many other toys inspired by movies and TV shows that are tipped to be as popular with kids of all ages this year.

BARGAIN BASEMENT TECH

 

Some of the latest tech and devices can be found in the Black Friday sales at bargain basement prices, including the highly anticipated iPhone X, as well as the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, and the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8.

 

 

When it comes to finding your smartphone on Black Friday, it is a good idea to go in with an idea of not only the phone that you want, but the data package you require as well. If you are someone who spends a lot of time on social media and messaging apps, you will want a contract that comes with a lot of data, so keep your eyes peeled for good data deals too.

If you're into gaming, the Nintendo Switch is a hot item this year, and you may find some great deals on this console once Black Friday comes around. The Xbox One X which launches in November is another game console that Xbox fans will have their eye on in the hopes of bagging a bargain.

COSY & CHIC COATS TO COVET

 

When winter rolls around, nothing beats cuddling and snuggling into a warm coat to keep out the cold. But as much as a coat needs to keep you warm, it is also the focal point of your wardrobe, as it is the last piece you'll put on and the first piece you'll take off. As such, while your coat should be practical allowing you to do everything you need to, it should also be a fashion statement, saying something about your style. While the saying goes 'don't judge a book by its cover', the truth is that people do.

 

To make sure you are not only warm and cosy this winter, but fashionable too, consider these major trends of the season when choosing the right coat for you. Look out for heritage checks, vibrant reds and faux fur accents.

 

 

CHECKMATE

 

Whatever form your check takes, be it houndstooth or windowpane, Prince of Wales or tartan, this season heritage checks are everywhere, and a statement coat in a heritage check is the perfect way to incorporate this trend with elegance. For a classic chic style that won't date, we promise that this is one style that will continue to be a wardrobe staple for winters to come.

 

If some combinations of check and multiple colours in the design may be too bold for you, there are plenty of muted checks in the shops, perfect for bringing your outfit on trend, but not being too overbearing for your style.

DARE TO WEAR RED

 

Nothing draws the eye like a bright, stand-out colour, and this season that colour is red. Whether you incorporate this bright and bold hue in your accessories or are more daring, why not take this trend head-on with a statement coat in pillar box red, scarlet, crimson or burgundy?

 

Have fun and experiment with your red coat and team it with jeans and knitwear on the weekends, throw over your everyday workwear to brighten up your day and add a splash of colour to your little black dress on a night out. Match your coat with a luscious red lipstick and you'll have a winning combination.

MAKE FAUX FUR YOUR FRIEND

 

A faux fur coat will always make a statement and is on trend again this season. Whether you opt for a bold print such as leopard spots or zebra stripes, a shag pile in pink or cream, or a classic grey, brown or black faux fur coat or jacket, be prepared to be stroked by all those you meet.

However, if you're too timid to take on this fashion trend, there are other ways to incorporate faux fur in a way that isn't overpowering. Look out for details such as a faux fur collar or cuffs and you can style out this trend without being too overbearing.
