Black Friday and Cyber Monday are renowned as the time to buy home goods and electronics, but there are also plenty of fashion bargains to be found. If you’re shopping the sales, here are my picks of the best Black Friday deals you can expect to find.
Plus, if you can’t wait until Black Friday 2020 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…
Tips on shopping the sales to get the best black Friday deals for you
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
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.
The best places to find great black Friday deals
Now that you’re thinking strategically about what will suit you, and that you will wear this season, and beyond, here are the best places to shop the Black Friday sales…
