    Black Friday velvet dresses

    There’s no doubt about it, crushed velvet is one of the hero trends of the new season, so you’d be foolish not to invest. Whether it’s a lace trimmed slip dress, high neck pleated midi or floor length dress, there’s a style to suit every taste too. When it comes to colour, bright shades can look a bit cheap, so opt for navy, black or dark jewel shades to keep things classy. Check out the bargains in our edit below.

    Black Friday red dresses

    Another key trend for AW17 is red, whether it’s head to toe or subtle touches.

From red lace dresses to red maxi dresses, shop our edit of the best Black Friday dress sales below – we’re a bit obsessed with the patterned red dress by Topshop.

    With Black Friday always falling in November, there’s no better time to grab a party dress in the sales, as all the party styles are already out. Of course, you’ve got your usual sequin numbers, preferably in metallic shades of copper, silver and gold. Then you have wraparound dresses in crushed velvet or satin, and the classic LBD which you can easily jazz up with some neon sock boots. Winter florals are also a big winner, so look out for floor-length floaty dresses with billowing sleeves. Shop our edit of the best Black Friday dresses below.

    What is Black Friday?

    Black Friday is a day when shoppers can take advantage of *huge* discounts from various retailers. We’re talking hundreds of pounds off high-end TV sets, half price beauty products, designer clothing, the works.

    When does Black Friday start?

    Black Friday falls on the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (which is the fourth Thursday of November). Here the UK, Black Friday 2019 will fall on the 29th November (which is a Friday) so you still have time to bookmark the shops you want to visit and pick out the deals you’re going to go after.

    When is Cyber Monday?

    This is always the Monday after Black Friday, so this year it will fall on the 2nd December.

    What is the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

    Honestly, there’s not much of a difference, as discounts usually last from the Friday through to the Monday, though some stores introduce new ‘flash’ deals on Cyber Monday.
