Black Friday weekend can be an assault on your email inbox, with every brand you've ever showed interest in sending alert after alert about offers and promotions. It's enough to make you want a full-blown digital detox. So, we're arming you with essential tips to help you find the best Cyber Week fashion and beauty deals for 2023 and avoid falling into any tempting sale traps.
When it comes to shopping for clothes, shoes and accessories during Cyber Week, you want to find classic pieces that have been slightly out of reach previously, or hard-working basics that are missing from your wardrobe (such as a new winter coat or ankle boots). I'd advise you only buy something that was already on your shopping list before it was on sale, check sizes carefully and don't be tempted to buy something just because it's in the sale. It's all about considered, thought-through purchases that won't give you a pang of guilt when you see your bank statement in December.
Black Friday might be over now for another year, but we've rounded up all the best deals that happened in 2022 that were actually worth knowing about, so that we can head into 2023 feeling prepared for what's to come. If you're specifically after high street steals, you won't beat these. If it's impressive beauty bargains you're after, check out our editor's top picks here. And if you take the opportunity to do a spot of Christmas shopping, we've got that too.
Scroll on to see the very best deals that happened last Black Friday and what you might be able to expect for 2023. As well as links to the pieces we'd recommend investing in, sale or no sale.
