Plus, if you can’t wait until Black Friday 2022 itself to snap up a bargain fashion buy, don’t worry, many stores have started their Black Friday sales early. You’ll find some of the best early discounts below…
What to expect from the Black Friday sales
For 2022, the Black Friday sales start on November 25 and Cyber Monday falls on November 28, but you’ll find that there are already deals in many stores.
Tips on shopping the sales to get the best black Friday deals for you
Plan ahead to get the best black friday deals
If you are looking for Christmas gifts for loved ones, the Black Friday sales can be the perfect time to buy.
Plus, think about the events you have coming up in the next few months, whether you have been invited to a festive party. Or maybe you expect to be working from home during the upcoming year. What outfits will you need? Take this into account when looking at the best black Friday deals. It’s no good buying something if you won’t actually find the right occasion to wear it!
Think about what you will wear now
This time of year, the sales usually include plenty of seasonally-appropriate attire, so you can pick up the perfect winter coat or pair of boots to help you put together your cold weather outfits.
Don’t buy just because it’s discounted
Common sense, of course, but don’t be tempted to make a purchase just because an item of clothing or pair of shoes is on discount.
Make sure what you choose fits and flatters you, and that it isn’t uncomfortable. Otherwise, your new purchase will simply spend years lurking at the back of your closet.

Now that you’re thinking strategically about what will suit you, and that you will wear this season, and beyond, below are the best places to shop the Black Friday sales…
