The one thing I still actually need that I haven’t bought yet is a warm, woolen coat. Since I need it like, yesterday, I’ve made finding an affordable one my mission for this Black Friday week. (Well, that and socks, underwear, something to wear to all the holiday parties coming up, and maybe some sweaters from H&M, too.)
If you still need outerwear and you’ve been holding out on making the big purchase, the time is now, unless you want to be cold for two more months. Prices will jack back up after Black Friday until they dip down again in January, after the holiday gifting season comes to a close. If the outerwear picks below aren’t doing it for you, make sure to scope out our full list of the very best Black Friday sales, or come back in a few days, when even more good coats are on sale!
