Where to Find the Best Deals on Black Friday Dresses

As summer fades and with it go the easy backyard barbecues and bonfire gatherings it’s impossible not to think of all the gift shopping, house decorating, and holiday social events the season brings with it. Everyone’s to-do list is bound to get long, but there’s no reason any of the items on those to-do lists have to feel like chores. Especially anything related to attending a big holiday party. Not when there are exclusive deals on Black Friday dresses to be hunted down.

If you’ve got dresses on your Black Friday shopping list, chances are there are two types you’ve got in mind. The first are the in-season cocktail dresses you’ll wear all throughout winter and beyond, dazzling any and all holiday parties you attend. You’ll probably be looking for something chic in either darker shades or rich jewel tones. And if a big name designer is your thing? The exclusive deals from Diane Von Furstenberg are likely to be 30% off on her website and in stores. This may be the time to finally snap up an iconic wrap dress from the woman who’s made them famous. Other great Black Friday dresses deals include:

  • J. Crew – 25% off entire purchase
  • Bloomingdale’s – discounts reaching up to 50% off plus free shipping
  • H&M – trendy pieces starting at just $5

Remember, just because we’re talking Black Friday dresses doesn’t mean you have to go for a little black dress for all your upcoming holiday social events. An LBD is always a great investment piece, but the official color of fall 2013 is emerald green, and classic but fun prints like herringbone and houndstooth are reigning supreme on the style lists.

If you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to dresses, however, forget picking up the newest looks for fall. The off season is where you’ll want to look. Flirty sun dresses and other light-weight pieces will still be available in a lot of stores (and on their corresponding websites), and even better, you’ll probably find a lot of them in the sale or clearance section. That’s savings on top of savings. Your best bet for hunting down off season dresses are in big department stores, or major clothing retailers like Gap, whose discounts on clearance items will go as high as 60% for Black Friday.

One thing to definitely add to your to-do list: make some room in your closet, because whether it’s fall’s newest fashions or last summer’s best, there will be big deals on beautiful dresses all over the place.
