Going monochrome: the best black fashion this Black Friday
Set your alarm. Clear your diary. And if you have to be at work, make a beeline for a laptop where your boss can’t see what you’re doing. Yes, we’re talking about Black Friday – one of the busiest online shopping days of the year – and it’s time to get your shop on.
We’ve got America to thank for this bargain-fuelled day (it’s a thing they do the day after Thanksgiving), and boy are we glad the UK’s embraced it. So fashionistas rejoice – this is the one day you can legitimately sneak in a few purchases for yourself amid all that Christmas present shopping. So, taking its name absolutely literally, here are our top black fashion picks for this Black Friday…
Long-Sleeved Lace and Velvet Skater Dress
The sultry mix of crushed velvet and lace makes this little skater dress one unashamedly sexy customer.
It’s flirty and fun and just what the office Christmas party’s been waiting for. Plus it’s a steal at £24 (was £38) from Oh My Love.
Skinny-Fit Suit Jacket with Wool
Men, give your wardrobe a touch of the Michael Bublé (never a bad thing), with this skinny-fit suit jacket from Burton.
It’s an insane £49 (down from £109) and that slimline fit will help streamline you even if you’ve already started on the mince pies. Now, if you could just work on those Michael Bublé eyes that’d be great. Thanks.
Hearts and Bows Gemima Jumpsuit
Just £15 will get you this bang on trend boiler-style jumpsuit from Ark.
With its loose-fit silhouette and elasticated waist, we’re all over this like brandy sauce on Christmas pudding. Plus, we love the fact this will surely cut our ‘getting ready’ time down to the ‘under 10 minute’ mark.
Black Leather Brogues
With contrast blue laces and cream-coloured soles, these black leather brogues by Ben Sherman cut a fine figure.
Down from £85 to £42.50 – but only left in limited sizes, so be quick! – they’re pretty easy on the wallet too. Perfect for updating your look without looking like you tried too hard. Smart but a little bit casual too – cunning!
Black Sleeveless Woven Front Top
The quandary: you want something to wear that looks like it cost a small fortune, yet you have to feed the kids, pay the mortgage, and put petrol in the car.
Well praise be for this little top. It comes courtesy of Wallis at House and Fraser, and it’s down to £21 from £30. The chainmail-style detail at the neck adds a touch of classy-looking bling and means you need waste no time on accessorising.
We’ve checked all the prices and availability today (Wednesday 16 November), but be aware that you might get even better deals on these products on Black Friday – provided there are any of these particular bargain items left by then!
