Whether you’re in a relationship or not, Singles’ Day—appropriately falling on 11.11—is one of fashion’s biggest and best discount shopping days and Zalora is epic. Singles’ Day, if you didn’t know, follows in the footsteps of Black Friday and Cyber Monday with online stores heavily discounting thousands of items for one day only.
Zalora, however, has taken things a step further, offering shoppers discounts of up to 70% off across the whole weekend of November 9 to 13, featuring our favourite high street brands including River Island, Dorothy Perkins, Topshop, Forever New, Adidas, and Nike. What’s more, the discount could potentially get even better as additional flash sales of up to 25% are promised across the site.
How to get the best discounts
Shop for important events
The trick to nailing these discounts and making the most of the huge savings on offer is to plan and think ahead. Think about any important events you have coming up—an extra special dress could now be affordable and save you a fortune in the long run. This could also be a good time to buy your Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Deepavali or Christmas outfits.
Go for staples
Also keep in mind the pieces you wear all the time—office suits and workwear in general 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 items
You might not need outerwear all the time, but a winter coat can be expensive to buy. This is why the best time to buy a winter coat—and other seasonal items—is during a sale. In this way, you don’t have to feel guilty about parting with $200 on something you’ll wear for only a week.
Stock up on accessories
The great thing about (most) accessories is that they last a long time. Go for timeless pieces that you can keep and wear even a year after you bought them. But, if you’re anything like us, you’re going to want to wear them immediately, which is fine too.
Speaking of accessories, the exclusive Jessica Jung bag collection is now available on Zalora and although it’s not included in the sale, they’re worth investing in.
Here are some pieces we recommend getting your hands on this sale season. Take a look at the full collection here.
