The Best Of Saks’ Black Friday Early Access Sale


There’s no doubt that Saks Fifth Avenue is our go-to for the very special pieces, beautiful pieces, aaaand designer denim. So when these gorgeous (and, often, expensive) things go on sale? We get real excited ’round here. And, lucky for us, Saks has started their Black Friday Event a whole week early this year! Yay!

Designer Jeans, Statement Bags & Our Fave Luxe Brands On Sale At Saks Fifth Avenue

Saks has been having sales events every few days. There was a spend/get event that ended on 11/19, and now it looks like there’s currently a new one, the Designer Sale, (up to $200 off, depending on how much you spend) running through tomorrow. The point here is to check back from time-to-time, especially if there’s a particular piece you’ve had your eyes on.

In addition to these sales events, Saks also has a Black Friday Early Access Event with a ton of amazing pieces marked down. So to save you some digging on the site, we’ve already found those suuuper soft & stretchy FRAME Bardot flares that S and Linzi both swear by, as well as our favorite Nespresso machine (the sexy one).

Also, if anyone knows a soon-to-be new mama…Bubagoo strollers are also part of Saks’ Designer Sale, as well as a ridiculously chic balance bike for littles (IknowIknow…who are we? Goop?).

To better take advantage of both the shorter sales events AND the Black Friday sale selection, our editors have pulled together a few of their most-worn, favorite pieces from Saks (many of which are included in these flash sales events) AS WELL AS their top picks from Saks’ Black Friday Sale section. We’ve tried to clearly annotate which is which, but it has been a bit tricky, so we do appreciate your patience as these sales quickly change.

Shana’s Top Saks Fifth Ave Picks

1. AG Mari Jeans (BFSALE) + SAM Teddy Jacket (FLASH SALE EVENT) – I’ve been wearing the heck out of this seriously cool, fuzzy jacket (size small, for reference). It’s like a fun little faux-fur, but with technical details and serious warmth. I get why everyone is obsessed with this brand. And these AG Mari Jeans fit and feel like my old, beloved AG Farrah jeans, but with an updated, straighter cut. Soft and easy – I love them (size 27 for reference). (I’m also wearing these Ganni boots that are almost out of stock. More sizes at Nordstrom, actually.)

2. Frame Bardot Jeans (BFSALE) + Sorel Brex Leather Chelsea Boots (FLASH SALE EVENT) – These cute Frame jeans are some of my very favorites (think: soft and stretchy) and I’ve cut them short-ish, so I can wear them with either chunky, platform boots & sneakers OR low heels (size 27 for reference). And these chunky Sorels (with the seriously cool red bottoms) are both super warm and surprisingly cushy on the inside, too. Great traction on the outside. Wearing them with Perfect Moment’s Ski Sweater (FLASH SALE EVENT), a piece I’ve had my eye on for YEARS.

Scotti’s Top Saks Fifth Avenue Picks

1| PAIGE Raundi Sweater (FLASH SALE EVENT) – This is one of my all-time favorite sweaters. (In fact, I have a post coming out on it soon!) I love the ever-so-slightly-sexy vibe of the cutout shoulder that doesn’t leave you freezing.

2| rag & bone Liquid Miramar Printed Pants (BFSALE) – I didn’t expect to love these as much as I did. These pants are SO incredibly comfortable and surprisingly cute. They may be a little light for winter (depending on where you live), but I’ll be wearing them all spring and summer long! (Oh, and the nylon backpack I’m wearing is also part of the promo!)

Laura’s Top Saks Fifth Avenue Picks

1| Moussy Vintage Odessa Wide-Leg Jeans (FLASH SALE EVENT) – If you’re a sucker for the PERFECT washed denim, these are for you. I can’t say enough good things. I’ve wanted a pair from Moussy forever, but the skinny options never fit me well. These are so, so good, and break in just beautifully. Though they’re an investment, they’re a pair I’ll have for a long time, and this is one of the few times they’ll be on sale. Size up. Wearing a 29. The Sweater is also part of the sale!

2| PAIGE Mayslie Coated Joggers (FLASH SALE EVENT) – I have these beloved pants in three colors now, one uncoated and two coated, and they are my most-worn pants that aren’t jeans. SO good. Not too long on those of us who are shorter (I’m 5’4”). Run a little big in the waist, TTS elsewhere. Wearing a 28. SO comfy. The perfect pants for travel to dress up or down. Sweater | Bag (both also on sale!)

3| Staud Wally Leather Boots (FLASH SALE EVENT) – Soft leather, the perfect heel height, great for wearing with straight-leg jeans. Definitely tempted to get them in the cognac shade on sale! TTS.

Linzi’s Top Saks Fifth Avenue Picks

1| FRAME Le Bardot Flare Jeans (BFSALE) – My newest pair of Frame denim—the pockets on the front are SO good. These jeans are ultra stretchy and comfy, but can be easily dressed up. I’m likely wearing them for holiday parties with this green silk cami. Frame flares are plenty long for you tall folks too…I hack mine off quite a bit.

2| FRAME Le High Waist Denim (FLASH SALE EVENT) – Saks has a fantastic selection of jeans included in the sale, and the classic FRAME Le High Waist Jeans have been a closet staple of mine for years. 

3| Susana Monaco Twist Back Dress (FLASH SALE EVENT) – Wow! Check out the back of this dress that is just over $100! Stunner.

Meredith’s Top Saks Fifth Avenue Picks

1| FRAME Le High Flare Jeans (FLASH SALE EVENT) – I own these jeans in a slightly lighter wash, but they are the perfect, stretchy flare. Size down one (I’m wearing a 29). 

2| Emma Lace Blouse (FLASH SALE EVENT) – An adorable, under-$100 top for the holidays! Also available in white.

Julieta’s Top Saks Fifth Avenue Picks

The holiday season is a time where some people wear all the festive colors — but what if you feel like your best self in neutrals? This brings me to some of my go-to holiday outfits: neutrals with a bit of a character.

Cinq a Sept Tamar Smocked Dress – If there’s a time to get this dress is now. You automatically get $50 off. You’ll love the silk and cotton next to your skin and it’s a dress you can wear all year round depending on the way you style it. I’ve worn it with boots and a leather jacket, and can’t wait to wear it in the spring and summer.

Ganni Textured Logo Sweatshirt (BFSALE) – It’s no secret that I am the label-lover of our TME crew, and I recently fell in love with Ganni and just got this sweater in. It’s cozy and gives me all the zillenial vibes.
