Singles Day

Treat Yourself


From Valentine’s Day and anniversaries to engagement parties and weddings, sometimes it feels like singles can get the short end of the straw. Which is why we’re taking a leaf out of China’s book this month and celebrating Singles Day, the nation’s wildly popular November 11 holiday for the free and unattached. Here, our guide to having your own stylish Singles Day celebration—because a day devoted to a little self-indulgence is something we can all get behind.



Make like the Chinese do and kick off the day with a delicious delicacy. Take yourself out on a date to your favorite bakery and savor the alone time—after all, you’re in good company.

You deserve it all
