Founded by former-advertising exec Clare Hornby in 2009, ME+EM disrupted the fashion industry with its ethos of escaping the fast-fashion trends and creating affordable, elegant wardrobe classics that last a lifetime.

Me+Em believes that the quality of its clothes is just as important as the design itself. Their designers spend hours and hours perfecting each cut, meticulously testing and honing each design detail.

They call this ‘Intelligent style’ because of a great deal of dedication and passion that goes into each piece. And just one look at their range of clothes, you can tell it’s working.

With Black Friday getting closer, you’re probably curious about Me+Em’s sale. Here’s everything we know so far.

Will Me+Em have a Black Friday sale?

Unfortunately, Me+Em will not be participating in Black Friday this year.

Their absence from the biggest shopping event of the year is definitely on brand. Me+Em’s commitment to the environment and social responsibility is admirable.

The last thing they want is to be part of the environmental impact of Black Friday, especially when 80% of purchases from the sale are thrown away after just a few uses.

According to Me+Em’s CSR page, they recycle and donate all leftover fabrics to art schools and colleges.

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday takes place on the last Friday in November, which will be 25th this year.

Top tips for shopping this Black Friday

There’s nothing wrong with participating in this year’s biggest holiday sale. Fashion should be accessible and affordable for everyone, but we should be more mindful of how much we buy.

The discounts make it tempting to go out and grab everything at low prices. However, it’s better to shop smart, not hard.

I recommend making a wish list of things that you actually need in your wardrobe. Avoid any trending clothing items that might go out of style in the next 12 months.

Aim for longevity and timeless pieces when shopping. Not only are you making planet-friendly decisions, but you are also building conscious shopping habits.

Does Me+Em do sales?

Even though the brand doesn’t participate in BF, they still have regular sales. You can get their best items for up to 60% off.

Wear Next opinion

Fashion is the best way we express ourselves. As consumers, we should be aware of the impact of overconsumption on our environment.

In 2020 alone, Black Friday emitted more greenhouse gas than a single African elephant in just one day. So, we can’t help but think about our shopping habits—and how much we’ll be helping pollute the earth.

So, it’s no surprise that brands like Monki, Next, and Arket have also opted out of Black Friday.

But you shouldn’t feel guilty for participating in this year’s sale. Shopping sustainably is not always possible for those on a low budget.

Rather than hauling in bags of clothes this year, we encourage you to shop mindfully. As tempting as most sales are, buying items you don’t really need only adds to the problem.

Shop smarter, not harder.
