Update your wardrobe and get your Christmas shopping done in the sale (The Independent )

Black Friday 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.

Black Friday is the biggest shopping event of the year, with savings to be had on beauty, tech, home appliances, kids’ toys, TVs and more.

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.

Follow live: Latest Black Friday deals

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.

You’ll never miss out on a bargain here, all you need to do is decide is whether it’s a new loungewear set or winter coat to invest in. Happy shopping!

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.
