I respect those individuals who save up all year with the goal of buying a new mattress or scoring a 4K TV on major markdown the day after Thanksgiving. But if you’re anything like me, you’re spending a large chunk of Black Friday shopping all things fashion. From cozy wool pullovers to washable silk PJs and the faux-leather pants I hope to wear all winter long, here are all the things—including accessories and jewelry finds—that I’m planning to shop during Black Friday.

ayr striped tee

1. AYR The French Fry Tee

I love a good striped shirt. It goes with everything and feels more festive than a solid hue. This one by AYR is just the right amount of oversized, although those who prefer a snugger fit might want to go down a size. Use code HOLIDAY for 25 percent off through the end of the weekend.

Size range: XS to XL

Jenni Kayne

2. Jenni Kayne Boucle Button Pullover

Each year I love to treat myself to a new sweater (or three) and donate old ones to maintain a balance in my wardrobe. And I definitely want to make room for this wonderfully cozy, vintage-looking Henley as we head into true winter, especially now that it’s 25 percent off (be sure to use code BFCM25 at checkout). My colleagues have raved about the Jenni Kayne cocoon cardigan so much that I feel ready to invest in some knitwear from the brand, though I’m more of a pullover gal myself.

Size range: XS to 3X

abercrombie and fitch faux leather pants fashion editor black friday 2022
Abercrombie & Fitch

3. Abercrombie & Fitch Faux-Leather 90s Straight Pants

These chic faux-leather pants from Abercrombie come in 11 different colors, but I’m partial to this rich, chocolate brown hue. It has a bit of a’90s feel to help me in my goal of having a Rachel Green-approved wardrobe. Plus, they come in Long lengths (as well as Short and Extra Short) so I feel confident they’ll be long enough for my 5’10” frame.

Size range: 23 to 37

roxanne assoulin crystal bracelet fashion editor black friday 2022
Roxanne Assoulin

4. Roxanne Assoulin Baseline Bracelet

I’m a sucker for sparkly jewelry, especially if it’s the kind you can wear every day. This Roxanne Assoulin bracelet is a cute twist on the classic tennis style (it also comes in a red and turquoise combo) and will definitely make me smile every time I see it.

strathberry nano tote fashion editor black friday 2022

5. Strathberry Nano Tote

Strathberry makes such beautiful bags, and while I usually go for bright colors or bold colorblocking, the off-white croc of this petite crossbody just looks so chic. Much like the bracelet above, it feels both timeless and modern, in this instance thanks to that gold bar closure and single top handle. (Enter code HOLIDAY at checkout for 25 percent off.)

marc fisher chelsea boots fashion editor black friday 2022
Marc Fisher LTD

6. Marc Fisher LTD Chelsea Lugsole Booties

Easy winter boots that can handle the elements and look chic while doing it are an absolute no-brainer in my book. I can wear these beauties with everything from raw-hem denim to black cropped trousers to floral midi dresses. Plus, the entire Marc Fisher website is 30 percent off through the weekend, so I may just need to pick up a few other styles as well.

girlfriend collective leggings fashion editor black friday 2022
Girlfriend Collective

7. Girlfriend Collective Float Ultralight Leggings

I recently overhauled my wardrobe by donating or selling the vast majority of pieces and in that process somehow accidentally got rid of all my basic leggings. So I did a little research on the best leggings money can buy and landed on this lightweight, high-waist style by Girlfriend Collective. There are two different inseam lengths to pick between and reviews say they are wonderfully flattering with just the right level of thickness and compression.

Size range: XXS to 6XL

mejuri pearl and diamond earrings fashion editor black friday 2022

8. Mejuri Diamond Pearl Studs

Pearls can sometimes look a bit too old-school for my taste, but the addition of a petite diamond just below gives them a much more modern edge. Plus, Mejuri as a brand is dedicated to sustainable and ethical practices and is constantly working with a variety of organizations aimed at improving the lives of women and non-binary people, which I fully support.

eberjey silk pajamas fashion editor black friday 2022

9. Eberjey Inez Washable Silk PJ Set

It’s a tough choice between this washable silk PJ set and Eberjey’s beloved Gisele model style, but I think I am leaning towards these vertical stripes. I love that I can just toss them in the wash—who really has the time or spare cash to bring their pajamas to the dry cleaners every week?—and they have a very vintage-y vibe that makes me smile. Use code JOY25 to knock 25 percent off everything on Eberyjey’s site.

Size range: XS to XL

Left On Friday

10. Left On Friday Hi Dive Bikini Top and Where To Bottom

This women-owned swimwear brand has swiftly become one of my absolute favorites. The high-quality suits are all designed for an active lifestyle, meaning they won’t bunch or gape and are supportive too, whether your idea of “active” means a full day of surfing or simply chasing after your niece on the beach. They rarely ever go on sale, but right now you can score $50 off any purchase over $150 with code TAKEOFF.

Size range: S to XL

Size range: XS to XXL

everlane trench coat fashion editor black friday 2022

11. Everlane Gathered Drape Trench

It’s a real toss up whether I’ll spring for a traditional beige colorway or instead go for this brown-and-blue houndstooth. I’ve been on the hunt for a good trench for years and friends have told me this might just be the one. The material has some movement but isn’t too flowy, so it drapes more easily over sweaters and dresses than stiffer styles for an easier overall look.

Size range: XXS to XL

staud leather bag fashion editor black friday 2022

12. Staud Ollie Bag

If I decide the above Strathberry tote is just too much of a splurge, this Staud shoulder bag will definitely be taking its place in my shopping cart. The bright red hue is the perfect pop for any outfit and it’s just the right size for all my essentials—keys, wallet, phone, lip balm—with room to add a few other things if need be. And thanks to Shopbop’s 25 percent off sale code, HOLIDAY, it’s now under 200 bucks.

jcrew leather loafers fashion editor black friday 2022

13. J.Crew Rowan Leather Penny Loafers

Plain white Keds are my go-to shoe for summer, but for fall and early winter I’m upgrading to a pair of penny loafers. And, yes, I fully plan to wear them with colorful contrasting socks poking out the top as the temperatures continue to drop. Use code SHOPEARLY to score 50 percent off select full-price styles ahead of Black Friday.

tracksmith brighton base layer fashion editor black friday 2022

14. Tracksmith Brighton Base Layer

This merino wool long-sleeve was designed with runners in mind, and I do plan to wear it while training throughout the winter, but I’m also excited to wear it while skiing or under sweaters on particularly chilly days. As a bonus, merino wool stays warm even when wet, so I don’t have to worry about freezing if I decide to cut my run short and walk the rest of the way home.

Size range: XS to L

dissh knit dress fashion editor black friday 2022

15. DISSH Ada Sleeveless Knit Dress

I already own one knit dress from DISSH and it’s so comfy and elegant that I’m coming back for more. In fact, I plan to wear this accordion-pleat number all year round, with knee-high boots and a cardigan in winter and strappy sandals and some gold hoops in summer. P.S. The entire site is currently 20 percent off with the discounts reflected once you go to checkout.

Size range: XS to XXL

chefanie pearl drop earrings fashion editor black friday 2022

16. Chefanie Pearl Bocconcinis

I first spotted these drop pearl earrings while combing through Chefanie’s website looking for fun holiday table linens. But as soon I learned that Drew Barrymore owns a pair, I knew I had to pick some up for myself. Use code 25OFF to score 25 percent off all earrings and accessories, and enjoy 15 percent off everything else, no code necessary.

madewell jeans fashion editor black friday 2022

17. Madewell The Perfect Vintage Straight Jean

I’ve had multiple friends, of all different body types and styles, recommend these jeans. And with the sale code OHJOY knocking 40 percent off the original price, I think it’s about time I see what all the fuss is about.

Size range: 23to 32
