Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday have all come and gone. Think the fun’s over? Think again.
All week long, ZARA is offering big-time discounts on some of their newer fall pieces in a campaign called Cyber Week. You can score up to 50% off on a variety of on-trend pieces, but what caught our eye in this crazy great sale was the Flowy Trenchcoat. Originally $99.90, this camo-lined trench is now 50% off and down to a Daily Deal price of $49.99
The good news? Like most ZARA pieces, the trench looks like it would cost a lot more than $49. We’re stocking up on this piece – and a few others – before Cyber Week ends.
The holiday season has officially started and suddenly – just like that – holiday sweaters seem to be everywhere you look. We’re a festive bunch so we say the more sweaters, the better.
To help you choose your holiday sweater wisely, we’ve narrowed down our list of favorites from hundreds to our top five festive sweater picks.
Trust us – it wasn’t easy.

- We adore ELLE – it’s affordable and on-trend in every season. Consider adding a dash of French flair to a holiday brunch with ELLE’s affordable Je T’aime French Applique Sweater ($23.99), available at Kohl’s.
- If French isn’t your think, give the Material Girl Destroyed Graphic Sweater ($19.60) a try. This sweater will add a dose of rocker-chic to all of your holiday festivities.
- Loving the ultra-festive Cabin Sweater from J.Crew. Normally price at $95, discount code HOLIDAYTREAT will get you this pick for $66.50. Pass the eggnog!
- Keep it cool and simple this holiday season with a Lightweight V-Neck Sweater in Fan the Flames red from Old Navy for a super affordable $24.
- Charlotte Russe has a huge selection winter sweaters this season, but our preferred pick is Open Back Pullover Sweater for $32.99. After all, we heard that naughty is the new nice.
Heels and dresses are nice, but every now and then we like to shake things up and embrace our tomboy side.
Whether it’s wearing an oversized blazer or adding some chic cufflinks to a favorite button down, bringing some boyish elements into your wardrobe will help you to stay stylish.

- Bow Tie, $68, Forage

So…how did your gear handle last week’s holiday travel?
Chances are you could use a few more organizational tools to help make the (crazy stressful) holiday travel that much easier.
Travel items also make for great gifts. If you have a traveler in your life – someone who just can’t seem to keep their feet on the ground – give them something they can really use. You might not be able to afford a ticket for them to Paris or Sydney, but at least you can help them to get their in style and comfort.
Here are 11 top gift ideas for travelers:
- Leather Tote and Wristlet, $48, Street Level at Nordstrom
- In Transit Makeup Remover, $33, J. Crew
- Travel Wallet, $19.99, Orla Kiely at Target
- Railway Map, $12, Flight 001
- Dome Cosmetic Case, $40, Kate Spade Saturday
- Cord Tacos, $28, Flight 001
- Eye Mask, $7.50, Muji
- Traveler’s Notebook, $28, Threadsence
- Neck Pillow, $19.99, Target
- Lip and Cream Blush Set, $22, Topshop
- Tube Scarf, $9.95, H&M

Can’t wait any longer for Black Friday deals?
We understand and luckily – so does Old Navy. Through today, Old Navy is offering 30% off everything. Everything!
All you need is code EARLYBIRD and you’ll score these Faux-Wool Pants for $21, this Tweed Blazer for $48.95, ankle boots for $27.95, and a new flannel button-down for just $15.
Old Navy is also offering a 5 Days of Deals promotion through today, and while the two discounts cannot be combined, we’re sure you’ll find something that you like in all of this Daily Deal goodness.
Tomorrow’s the big day – Thanksgiving (!!).
It’s always been one of those holidays that’s a little difficult to dress for. You want to look your best (there will be photos, of course), be comfortable, and also make sure you choose an outfit that allows for…eating.
To help you on your way, we’ve put together three outfit ideas surrounding one piece: H&M’s Sleeveless Jumpsuit ($34.95). The jumpsuit is chic, affordable, allows for lots of layering options, and has an elastic waistband – we don’t even need to tell you how key that is for Thursday.
Here are 3 different Thanksgiving outfit ideas:
