The 50 Best Things $50 Can Buy You This Black Friday Weekend

50 and under Black Friday Items


Szymon Brzoska/ Style Stalker

Growing up, before the sun had even risen, I jump out of bed, braid my hair, and head out with my grandmother to do one of our favorite things together: shopping on Black Friday. And while I now live far away from my family, and this year’s Black Friday sales will be less IRL and more on the internet, the one thing that hasn’t changed is my love for finding a good deal. For editors like myself, we relish the opportunity to scour Shopbop and Amazon for the best things to buy at the moment. Trust me, it is a skill in-and-of-itself to find well-made pieces online. But if you prefer not to spend hours in-line or online this year and still want to find a steal, all you have to do is keep scrolling. That’s right—I’ve taken the liberty of rounding up the chicest things you can buy this Black Friday all under $50. Whether it’s for you or a loved one, the steals you’re about to score will give you the adrenaline rush without all the fuss of crowds.
