The Early Black Friday Sales Worth Shopping—and What We’d Buy

Black Friday can be an assault on your email inbox, with every brand you’ve ever showed interest in) sending alert after alert about offers and promotions. It’s enough to make you want a full-blown digital detox. So, we’re arming you with essential tips to help you find the best clothing and fashion deals and avoid falling into any tempting clothing sale traps. 

When it comes to shopping for clothes, shoes and accessories during Black Friday, you want to find classic pieces that have been slightly out of reach previously, or hard-working basics that are missing from your wardrobe (such as a new winter coat or ankle boots). I’d advise you only buy something that was already on your shopping list before it was on sale, check sizes carefully and don’t be tempted to buy something just because it’s in the sale. It’s all about considered, thought-through purchases that won’t give you a pang of guilt when you see your bank statement in December.

It might be just under a week until the actual day, but some of the best Black Friday clothing deals are already live, with lots of brands launching their offers early this year. Trust us when we say we’ve had eyes on them all, and below we’ve whittled it down to the ones we think are actually worth you knowing about. So, if you’re hoping to get a jump on your sale shopping and avoid any stressful panic-buying next weekend, keep scrolling to see the early offers that have impressed us, and the pieces we’d recommend investing in.
