A Black Friday clothes sale is one of the best opportunities to stock your closet. It's also one of the few times you can score discounts on seasonal clothing when you actually need it!
To help you plan for a marathon shopping session, we've put together the ultimate Black Friday fashion guide. Read on for the top items to watch for during the big event, including the best buys for men, women, and children.
Here are the best clothing deals we've seen in the Black Friday ads.
NOTE: The information below was assembled before the Black Friday ads came out. Please refer to the ads above before making any shopping plans.
Last year on Thanksgiving, a huge 42% of the clothing deals we listed earned our "Staff Pick" designation. That number hit 39% on Black Friday, and on Cyber Monday, these top-notch offers made up 51% of our clothing deals. Thanksgiving and Black Friday had the most clothing sales overall, though.

When it comes to shopping for men's clothes around Black Friday, certain categories tend to see better deals than others. And suits are among the top picks we're recommending for 2019. We expect to see suit deals for around $100 at stores like Macy's during the Black Friday season, but other retailers will jump in as well. Watch for Men's Wearhouse to offer select suits as part of a buy one, get one free deal, and for Jos. A. Bank to drop prices on certain styles to as little as $79.
In the market for shoes? Your best bet will be to shop for athletic shoes and boots, then wait until Cyber Monday for other shoe types. Stores like Joe's New Balance Outlet will knock up to 70% off a range of styles, while brands like Adidas will offer slightly more modest discounts of up to 50% off.
And if you need boots, look for department stores to drop prices to around $20. But also keep an eye out for a rare discount at L.L.Bean — last year it took 25% off its collection of Bean boots for the whole family and offered free shipping.
If you're looking for new shirts, you'll be able to find them super cheap. Just be prepared to look before Black Friday. For instance, last year Old Navy kicked off its pre-Black Friday sale by dropping the price of men's shirts to $2.98, while the Wednesday before the shopping day, Aeropostale knocked shirt prices down to $2.60.
If you're in need of casual shirts, watch for polo shirts to be as cheap as $8 at retailers like Amazon. Stores like Jos. A. Bank, meanwhile, could drop prices to a still-affordable $10. And Hanes could bring back its BOGO free offer for polos.
Black Friday is a great time to stock up on denim, as some retailers offer up their best sales during this time. While you can find men's jeans for as little as $7 at the likes of Walmart, you'll also have the opportunity to snag higher-end pairs at excellent prices.
Amazon will likely have big-name brands like True Religion, Levi's, and Tommy Hilfiger at up to 50% off. We commonly see Levi's and Lucky Brand denim drop to $25 around this time, and there's a chance PacSun could bring back its BOGO sale — last year, shoppers could grab one denim item and get a second one for free.
It's rare to be able to snag discounts on seasonal clothing when you actually need it, but Black Friday will provide ample opportunities to grab cozy sweaters you can wear right away. Stores like Old Navy will offer these cold-weather necessities for as little as $6, but even Gap Factory will have affordable styles for around $20. Need a festive sweater for the company holiday party? Watch for Amazon to knock up to 40% off a number of "ugly sweater" styles.
Much like men's denim, jeans for women will be a great buy during the Black Friday season. If PacSun's sale returns, women's denim will be part of the BOGO free offer, and Amazon will cut the prices of True Religion and Levi's by up to 50%.
Not worried about brands? There's a good chance Spring will drop Dockers women's jeans to a super affordable $10. That's not bad for a utilitarian pair that could outlast your typical pre-distressed designer jeans!
Footwear is another category you should check out around Black Friday. It's an excellent time to stock up on women's boots, as they'll drop to $20 per pair at stores such as Macy's, Belk, and Amazon. Macy's could also include these kicks in a BOGO free sale, and extend free shipping as part of the deal. That would make it a must-shop offer for anyone who needs (or wants) new boots.

Don't forget to watch for L.L.Bean to take 25% off its Bean boots, which are suitable for seriously icy winter conditions.
Lingerie is one category to avoid during the myriad sales. Victoria's Secret will most definitely have a Black Friday sale, as will Soma. However, hold off unless there's an item you really need for a holiday gift. After Christmas, both of these stores will launch semi-annual sales that will likely have better deals — and a wider selection — than Black Friday.
Kids tend to grow like weeds, so you have to seize any opportunity to stock up on clothing that'll fit. Specialty retailers such as Carter's and The Children's Place will knock up to 80% off a wide range of items around Black Friday. Individual pieces will likely be as cheap as $4, making it a good time to buy enough basics to tide kids over until their next growth spurt.
That said, skip the festive holiday attire for now. You'll see better deals on it closer to the holidays, so if you need something sparkly for the little ones, you'll likely have better luck in December.
Looking to ward off winter's chill? Thankfully, kids' jackets will drop to less than $20. Look to Old Navy and Macy's to offer them between $12 and $16. Need lighter outerwear? Outdoor stores like Columbia will drop the prices of windbreakers to around $14. Meanwhile, Amazon will discount brands like Columbia and Arctix by up to 30%.
Maybe you gift the kids in your family new PJs for the holidays every year, or perhaps they're just in need of new sleepwear. Either way, Black Friday is the time to look for deals. Stores like Macy's will discount pajama sets to $20 or less and include styles for the whole family — not just the little ones. Target will discount character pajamas heavily, knocking kids' styles to as little as $5, and stores like Carter's will offer PJs for around $8 to $10.
If your kids are in need of new kicks, stores like Carter's will likely include them as part of a BOGO free sale. This will be an excellent chance to stock up, but even if you miss out, other retailers will have plenty of savings to offer. Stores like Shoes.com will take up to 75% off styles across its site, and Sorel will knock up to 55% off for kids, as well.
