I Have Classic Style, and Here's How I'm Shopping Black Friday Sales

Around the Who What Wear office, the other editors often refer to my sense of style as “classic,” which rings pretty true. While I’m constantly reporting on all of the newest trends, my wardrobe is rooted in pieces I can wear season after season. I’m definitely not trend-averse, but I always want to make sure the items I’m purchasing fit in with my personal style.

This brings me to my strategies for Black Friday. I see the shopping holiday as an opportunity to fill my closet not with trendy or seasonal items, but with pieces I’ll be wearing for years to come. This is especially true with investment pieces I’ve been eyeing but waiting to purchase at a more attainable discount. Ahead, I’m breaking down all of the pieces on my current shopping list, which I’m holding out on checking off until the Black Friday sales arrive next month. I’ve listed them in order of price, from big-ticket items down to more affordable pieces at the end, so browse accordingly and happy shopping!
