New Look is one of those brands that has slipped under my radar in the past, but it offers some surprisingly chic and affordable pieces – particularly during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here, I’m sharing everything you need to know about the upcoming sale.
If styled well, New Look‘s pieces can look much more luxurious than they actually are. Mixing and matching with tailored pieces or high quality items is an easy way to achieve this. After all, we can’t all afford luxury pieces.
New Look’s prices are fortunately always low, but on Black Friday they get even more affordable. As well as pieces for yourself, they also offer sale options for men and kids too so you can easily tick off your gift list.
You’ll need to be careful not to spend carelessly, as their incredibly low prices than make it very tempting. Instead, focus on finding wardrobe staples and long-lasting pieces that won’t date. New Look also offers great lingerie, footwear and nightwear that looks way more expensive than it actually is.

What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is an annual sale day, which sees countless brands across multiple industries slash their prices for a limited time only. It’s not limited to but definitely includes fashion, as well as beauty, tech and interiors. It happens the day after Thanksgiving in the US and signifies the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, as it’s roughly a month before Christmas.
The offers sometimes continue throughout the weekend, and the following Monday sees all the discounts being offered exclusively online for what is now called Cyber Monday.
When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday happens on the last Friday of November each year. In 2023, that falls on the 24th. Cyber Monday then happens the following Monday, on November 27th.
Will New Look take part?
Yes. New Look has confirmed they’re taking part, so you can expect to see some great deals this November. Yay!
What to expect from New Look’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale in 2023
Last year saw up to 60% off on almost everything and in 2021 New Look offered 10 days of treats, offering 25% off various categories that changed every day. We can’t say for certain exactly what the discounts will look like this year, but I’m predicting similarly generous offers.
Our top tips for shopping New Look’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale in 2023
If you want to make the most of New Look’s annual sale, it’s a good idea to think ahead. Make a wish list of pieces you like or need. Perhaps you’re after a new winter coat to replace one that’s worn out, or maybe you just need some basics like tees and jeans. When Black Friday arrives, avoid looking through all the other pieces on offer and buy only from the wish list you made earlier.
Remember to buy for others
You might get overexcited on Black Friday and end up splashing out on yourself when you see how much good stuff there is on offer, but remember Christmas is coming up. Ask your loved ones what they want for Xmas to avoid buying them things they’ll end up giving away later down the line.
It sounds unlikely, but you might forget about Black Friday. Sign up to the New Look newsletter to be reminded, as well as to get first dibs on any exclusive discounts or offers.
Wear Next opinion
As consumers are becoming savvier to the impact of overconsumption on our environment and the individuals working to produce garments, many brands have decided to boycott Black Friday this year.
While we don’t condone overspending, we do want fashion to be accessible to those on a low budget, as well as those who struggle to shop sustainably due to size constraints.
We love fashion and the freedom of self-expression it brings and understand you’re going to want to shop the sales. We encourage you to be mindful of your spending and avoid buying items you’re probably going to discard of in a year’s time.
Shop smarter, not harder, this Black Friday. Ensure you’re not overspending by setting yourself a budget beforehand and creating a wish list of items you actually need rather than want – including Christmas gifts for others – if you are going to spend.
