Black Friday is getting close, folks, and it's not too soon to start planning your shopping game plan for the highly anticipated day. For the past few weeks, we've been reporting on what we plan on (and recommend) buying from the sales, but truth be told, we just got a bit of a wake-up call from fashion and retail technology company Edited. Often our source of retail and shopping trend data, Edited just put out a report for retailers on how to prepare themselves for the biggest shopping day of the year, and among the advice were seven trends the team recommends not marking down on Black Friday. The reason? "Our advice is to pay attention to the products which don't need to have bumper price drops in order to sell," says Edited. "We can already see fast movement, at full price on these products."
It makes perfect sense to not reduce prices on things that are selling out anyway, and it's perhaps a good reason to stick to buying more basics on Black Friday, like jeans and cashmere sweaters. It's also a good reason to consider shopping for the trends Edited names before Black Friday (and before they sell out). With that, keep scrolling to shop the seven trends you probably won't see reduced on Black Friday, and then read the report in full for more shopping insights.
