Black Friday is finally here. Following a whirlwind year, it’s a good opportunity to not only catch up on much-needed relaxation, but also the perfect time to sit back and shop the best Black Friday sales. Treat yourself while getting a head start on holiday gift shopping too.
With hundreds of items to shop, our editors sifted through the endless options to curate the best Black Friday sale items to buy this year. While some of us may be looking to stock up on chic fashion finds for winter, beauty essentials to buy in bulk, or new home upgrades to make our nights more comfortable while we stay at home, there’s plenty to choose from. Ahead, 20 Vogue editors share what they’re eyeing from the best Black Friday deals this year, from Aquazzura boots to a much-desired ping pong table as we all hunker down this winter.
Mark Holgate, Fashion News Director
I’ve had an ongoing obsession with this Bianca Saunders coat for some time now. (OK, full disclosure: Ever since it appeared on the MatchesFashion.com app months ago.) I think Bianca is super talented, but buying an up-and-coming designer at my, cough, age, can be a challenge. I love that this is ostensibly a really classic mac transformed by the shoulder padding detail. It’s an inventive piece, but not overwhelming.
Alexandra Gurvitch, Market Editor
I have been coveting these Bottega Puddle boots for some time as I have been wanting a fashion weather boot to get me through the upcoming snowy season. It’ll make slogging through the icy sidewalks much more joyful!
Chloe Malle, Contributing Editor
I love Thakoon’s new line and have had my eye on this corduroy parka all fall. 40% off is a very good incentive to pull the trigger!
Madeline Fass, Market Editor
With a long winter ahead of us, I am looking to up my stay-home coziness on every level this Black Friday. I already snagged a new set of cream colored pillowcases from Parachute’s sale, because you can never have too many pillows. And I am patiently waiting to see if the coordinated knit shorts to my Jacquemus bralette get discounted too so I can complete the lazy-chic lounge look of my dreams.
Virginia Smith, Fashion Director
I’ve been lobbying my family for a ping pong table for a while now but this might just be the year it happens. Seems like a good diversion to get us through the long winter.
Madeline Swanson, Market Editor
I love Jack Erwin for their classic silhouettes and quality materials, and I’ve had my eye on these delicious olive green loafers since summer’s end. 20% off makes them a shoo-in (no pun intended!) for my first Black Friday purchase.
Naomi Elizée, Associate Market Editor
I’ve been looking for a new hair oil and just discovered this Black-owned hair care line Bread Beauty Supply. All of their products are tailored for the curly 3A-4C Hair community which is something hard to come by (in my opinion). They are doing a special Black Friday deal so this is definitely the time to try out their products! Plus, love the brand name!
Julie Tong, Commerce Editor
I’ll take any opportunity to add Khaite to my closet, especially when on sale. I know they’re timeless essentials I can and will wear for years to come, well worth the investment.
Willow Lindley, Accessories Director
Stocking up on my all time favorite shirts and button downs from Bleusalt this Black Friday. These are crazy soft! I’m obsessed. Once you start wearing these always-appropriate tops, you will really be spoiled on anything else.
Zoe Ruffner, Beauty Editor
The perfect boot. Need I say more?
Brooke Bobb, Senior Fashion News Writer
I’m a huge fan of Wales Bonner and would be wildly happy to own this amazing shearling coat, which has been made even more amazing since it’s currently on sale!
Lilah Ramzi, Features Editor
For reasons that have nothing to do with The Queen’s Gambit, I’ve been very into chess lately. I keep returning to this Man Ray-designed chess set in my searches online but also, it seems to be following me. It greeted me at the gift shop at Fotografiska last weekend and again at the MoMA design store a couple of days later. I think it’s a sign.
Rachel Besser, Market Editor
I have been on the market for a comfortable, ankle skimming dress that I can wear to feel a bit more polished this holiday season and beyond. While that may seem like a lot to ask of a dress, this satin midi number by Nanushka instantly caught my eye.
Rickie De Sole, Executive Fashion Director
Dressing my kids up gives me such joy. I love these smocked classics from La Coqueta. I am planning to stock up by buying them in a range of sizes for my daughter to grow into over the year to come.
I’m also excited to find great gifts for my son on sale and love this Vespa that he can zoom around the block on!
Alexis Bennett, Commerce Writer
I love switching up my handbag with every outfit, but recently I lost my license and debit card, which I truly believe wouldn’t have happened if I had a centralized place to keep them in. So the number one thing on my shopping list is a high-quality wallet. I love the versatility of the neutral pebbled leather on this one and the contrasting dark brown interior.
Ella Riley-Adams, Senior Beauty and Living Editor
Some clothes immediately inspire fantasies. When I look at this Story MFG dress, I imagine myself drinking some kind of ginger smoothie on the beach in Mexico, hair still wet from a morning in the waves. While I may not get that anytime soon, I can layer this over a turtleneck in the hopes of eventually manifesting the tropics.
Emily Farra, Senior Fashion News Writer
I’m going to need an extra-warm beanie for long walks this winter, and my friend Maria Stanley’s fluffy alpaca one is 20% off this week. I’m also picking up a few bottles of my favorite face oil from Circumference to keep my skin hydrated—their entire site is 25% off!
Mai Morsch, Associate Market Editor
I have been meaning to invest in a weighted blanket for some time now, and Black Friday feels like the perfect occasion to do so with winter fast approaching. I love Baloo Living’s simple white cotton version as it will blend in nicely with my minimalistic bedroom decor.
Liana Satenstein, Senior Fashion News Writer
I barely use a bag anymore, but I still need to carry my keys and cash. Also, I should mention I’m sans wallet, too, so everything is scattered in a really chaotic fashion. I like a hint of logo sometimes, so I’ve been eyeing this Gucci monogrammed wristlet, which reminds me of early aughts Jennifer Lopez circa her On the 6 years. If I have this, I’ll never have to cancel a lost debit card ever again!
Akili King, Beauty Associate
I don’t do a ton of shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but when I do I love to support Black-owned businesses as much as possible. As someone with eczema, there are few products that work for my skin. With that being said, AHF’s Body Butter is a staple in my body care routine because of its healing ingredients and divinely therapeutic scent offerings, including my favorite: Lavender & Lemon. Given the deals, this is the perfect time of year to get them in bulk to prepare myself for the skin-drying winter. They also make great stocking stuffers!
