11 Everyday Items I Wish I'd Waited Until Black Friday to Buy

The best Black Friday clothing basics



The beauty of Black Friday sales is that, on top of the amazing deals on gift-worthy items, you'll find highly covetable fashion items for every season of the year from low-priced brands all the way up to designer labels. Since I'm somewhat of an avid shopper, I tend to buy those everyday items I need (aka basics) when I need them, but based on the number of stylish basics I've seen on sale this week, I really wish I'd waited and bought my jeans, tees, sweaters, and coats in bulk this week.

Some of the best brands for basics, such as Reformation, H&M, Madewell, and & Other Stories, are having great sales right now, so if you're like me, your head is probably spinning. I can help with that if you keep scrolling. And if you're not like me and haven't already bought all the basics you need for the time being, you've come to the right place. I rounded up the 11 everyday wardrobe staples that I highly suggest shopping for today as well as the most stylish sale items in each one of those categories. Good luck today, folks. I know we'll need it.


Whether you're in need of a classic silhouette, athletic shoes, or the latest It sneakers, you're bound to find some excellent pairs on sale this weekend, and many of them are well under $100.

Straight-Leg Jeans

In my opinion, straight-leg jeans are the "every day" jeans, and there are so many pairs on sale right now. I suggest buying your favorites in every wash.

Sweaters and Sweatshirts

Since it's really starting to get cold now, it's the perfect time to replace some of your older pilled sweaters (of which I have plenty) or add a few new styles to your wardrobe.


I don't know about you, but I don't love paying full price for sunglasses since I have so many, but I do wear them every day, so I certainly allow myself to buy a few new pairs every year. (Tip: Shopbop has one of the best selections of discounted sunnies.)


Another thing I don't love paying full price for is pajamas, but I do love cute pajamas, so Black Friday is the perfect occasion to snag a few pairs.


If you live in a cold climate, you know how essential puffers are, and there are always tons on sale (including chic ones) during Black Friday. 

Simple Jewelry

I've been on a mission to invest in more fine and demi-fine jewelry, and now is the time since prices are seriously slashed left and right.


Let's face it—nice bras are expensive, but wearing cheap ones doesn't have to be the answer. The answer can instead be Black Friday sales and the plethora of on-sale expensive bras that come with it.


This one hardly needs an explanation. You probably wear leggings for working out, traveling, and lounging, and sites like Girlfriend Collective and Alo are having crazy sales this week, so go ahead and get yourself a new pair (or three).

Knee Boots

Knee boots are a trend, but they're also an everyday item this time of year, so investing in a nice (on-sale) pair is completely justifiable.


Blazers are one of the most timeless clothing items you can buy on Black Friday. I've spotted tons of lovely ones at every price point today.
