Black Friday weekend 2020 is finally here, so if you’re looking for the very best ways to save on fashion purchases, then you’ve come to the right place.
Not only is it close to Christmas, meaning you can get your shopping done earlier, but it’s also when fashion labels slash prices with considerable discounts sitewide.
With lockdown 2.0 meaning the closure of non-essential shops in England, this year’s event is an online-only affair. There’s no queuing or having to fight for the final discounted dress in your size. Rather, you can shop from the comfort of your own home and use our Black Friday guides to help you.
Whether you’re on the hunt for your Christmas Day outfit or a special necklace for a loved one, there are big savings to be had at the likes of & Other Stories, Asos and Reformation, as well as cult-favourite jewellery brands Missoma, Monica Viande and Astrid & Miyu.
With so many products and such little time to choose, we’ve done the hard work for you and curated an edit of the best deals across everything from outerwear to underwear, and everything in between.
Our IndyBest team hand-picks every deal we feature. We may earn some commission from the links in this article, but our selections have been made independently and without bias. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.

These handmade leather boots have built a cult following thanks to their expertly crafted and on-trend designs that will never go out of style.

This 92 per cent silk dress is pure luxe, a gorgeous power piece that will make heads turn. The cuffed balloon sleeves and tie waist give an elegant fit and silhouette, while the flowing skirt adds a feminine touch. This piece is part of Ganni’s positively conscious range, which means the brand measures the carbon footprint of every item, and then covers the cost to make that footprint carbon neutral.

Loved for its soft fabrics and durable leggings, Lululemon’s Black Friday sale has kicked off, with discounts across its sportswear and accessories. This pair featured in our review of the best yoga pants which our tester found them to be super comfortable.

All Saints’ Black Friday deals have just launched, with 30 per cent off everything. We’d recommend investing in one of its coveted leather jackets while they are discounted, and this one topped our review of the best leather jackets for autumn.
Our reviewer found it to be super soft. It's fully lined, which kept them warm during a downpour, and has deep enough pockets to fit an iPhone 11, AirPods and a face covering, so you can forgo a handbag.
Topshop mom jeans in indigo: Was £40, now £20, Asos
Topshop is one of the most reliable places for denim, so snap up this mom style pair while there is 50 per cent off. High-rise with a slim tapered leg and relaxed fit, they’re a timeless style that can be easily dressed up or down and we think will easily become a staple in your wardrobe.

If you love an aviator jacket but want a bit more coverage, this is ideal. It still has all the stylish trimming you’d expect, with a faux fur lapel and cuffs, but will skim just below the knee. We’d recommend wearing it with jeans, boots and a colourful cashmere jumper.
French Connection patti leather belted shirt dress: Was £280, now £196, French Connection
Leather clothing is the fabric to be seen in this winter after it dominated the catwalks, and this 100 per cent leather dress is the perfect way to tap into the trend, and with 30 per cent off we can’t believe the price. Wear with black tights and a polo neck, and add a gold chain to break up the monotone. Equally, style it unbuttoned over a pair of your favourite black high waisted jeans.
