1. Hit up these stores on Day 1
Stuff at these stores fly off the shelves and before you know it, there will be nothing good left. Make it here on day 1 or don't bother really -- there will be slim pickings later:
Zara is a fish market at DSS. And why wouldn't it be? With the latest trends and gorgeous clothes that look like they were plucked right from the runway, ALL for a fraction of the price, it's every girl's dream. Watch out, though, those sizes go fast. Things get serious when DSS deals start and if you don't make it in time, there will definitely be nothing left.
This is one of our fave DSS spots with a lot of high-end brands discounted as much as 30 to 60 per cent. Set your alarm clock and head to MOE early tomorrow. It will be worth it.
Rush to Bloomies when you're done with Harveys if you've got time. The awesome Big Brown Bag Sale has up to 75 per cent off! Get there in time for right piece in the right size.
These pieces literally disappear in the blink of an eye because everything is a STEAL at the rock bottom prices. If you don't get there in time, you'll end up in an endless queue at the cashier. *Groan*.
Edgy and trend-on footwear, bags and accessories ridiculously discounted? Yes, please! Everyone loves the affordable and cool pieces at Charles&Keith, so getting there first is a no brainer.
2. Shop at quieter malls
We love to shop in Dubai Mall, MOE, and other busy malls in town, but during DSS it can be a real hassle! Instead, go to these quieter malls with all the brands you love, to make sure you get everything you're looking for:
IF YOU LIKE: SPLASH
GO TO: BURJUMAN
Splash is the go-to destination for a gamut of international brands like Lee Cooper, Bossini, ELLE and Being Human. The Burjuman Center branch will have exactly what you want. It's big and not as crowded as MOE and Dubai Mall.
IF YOU LIKE: MULTI-BRAND COOL BRANDS
GO TO: ROBINSONS IN DUBAI FESTIVAL CITY
This store has it all under one roof. Run away from shopping madness of the season to a spacious, airy and luxurious store with a ton of cool brands you can't find anywhere else.
IF YOU LIKE: NEW LOOK
GO TO: THE OASIS CENTRE
New Look tends to always be packed but there will be less of a probability of being knocked down by a crowd at the branch in The Oasis Centre.
IF YOU LIKE: MANGO
GO TO: MERCATO
Who doesn't loooove Mango? The Dubai Mall branch is always insanely crowded, even when it's not DSS, so skip the madness and head to Jumeirah. We're always a fan of the beautiful Venetian-inspired Mercato. Pink-hued, bright and with the right kind of buzz, it's perfect for a day of happy stress-free shopping. And the Mango there is awesome!
3. Cosmo's fave DSS stores
Techie heaven! With several branches located in the most Dubai’s malls, you can get great deals on phones, gadgets and so much more.
SUN & SAND SPORTS
If you want to stock up on sportswear, this is THE place to go. It's got awesome brands and tons of athletic equipment.
BATH &BODY WORKS
We literally run to this store come DSS. it has the most delish shower gels, soaps, home fragrances and scented candles. And it smells freaking awesome.
VICTORIA’S SECRET PINK
Now this place has it all -- beauty, athleisure and so much more. We walk out with embarrassingly full armfuls of stuff every DSS.
Bling, boots, shoes, bags -- you name it, Aldo has got it all. We're huge fans.
Get ready shoppers, deals and offers are everywhere across the city,. Well, almost everywhere. We wish these places would join the DSS fun:
and sooo much more!
