Uniqlo's Black Friday sale is nearing for 2021 and the discounts are bound to be big. The retailer offered generous mark-downs on cashmere and down puffer coats last year, so we're excited to see what's in store this November.

The sales period is the perfect time to stock up on your staple wardrobe essentials and invest in good quality basics for the year ahead. Which is why Uniqlo should be one of your first stops on Black Friday.

In an oversaturated market of fast fashion and fads, the Japanese retailer is renowned for its commitment to simplicity. Which means, season after season, you can always rely on the brand for well-fitting jersey basics, excellent knitwear and coats that actually perform. Basically, Uniqlo doesn't prioritise style over substance – and what's more stylish than effortlessness?

If you want your clothes to function and look good, without costing the earth, Uniqlo is the best place to go on the high street. The prices are even better, of course, once Black Friday rolls around. The retailer took part in a big way last year and we're expecting much of the same for 2021's event. Keep scrolling for our guide to navigating the sale stress-free.

What should I look out for in the Black Friday sales?

We suggest you start compiling a wish-list before you shop, because things can get a little hectic on the Black Friday weekend and you don't want to lose focus. We always recommend shopping online to guarantee better size options and stock but, of course, this year you don't have a choice!

Does Uniqlo take part in Black Friday?

For the past three years, Uniqlo has celebrated Black Friday for an entire week, so we think it's safe to say the brand is a fan of the sales day.

When is the Uniqlo Black Friday sale in 2021?

Black Friday always falls on the day after Thanksgiving in America, which is always the fourth weekend in November. This year, that's the 26th.

Luckily, fashion sales are generally less stressful compared with tech or furniture events, because retailers drop deals before the Friday – giving shoppers more time to consider their purchases. Of course, you don't want to spend too long deliberating because popular items will sell out very quickly.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday actually originates in the US – it references the rush of post-Thanksgiving sales. The annual event, thought to be kick-started by department store Macy’s, has grown in popularity ever since the ‘30s, but the term 'Black Friday' wasn't officially coined until later on.

It was Amazon that took the concept across the pond to the UK in 2010, offering online discounts and deals to customers on the same day as the sales in America.

Fast forward to 2021 and Black Friday is now one of the biggest (if not the biggest) shopping events of the year, with most retailers taking part in some way.

What was in Uniqlo's Black Friday sale last year?

Where do we begin? On the Monday, discounted flannel shirts; on the Tuesday, cashmere accessories from £19.90; on the Wednesday, offers on the Heattech range, and on the Thursday, down jackets starting from just £89.90. From the Friday onwards, there were deals on Merino wool knitwear, ultra warm down coats, Blocktech parkas and more.
