If your venturing out November 23rd, 2012, it’s important to dress appropriately. Here are some of basic Black Friday fashion tips to help you prepare for this glorious shopping day.
- Wear something you can easily take on and off.

Dressing rooms can be a little hectic during Black Friday, so you want to make sure your wear something that you can quickly get in and out of, if you want to try anything on.
- Carry a smaller purse. Larger purses might become too bulky while trying to shop.

Assuming that you find all the good deals, your going to have so many items in your hands from shopping, you only need the essentials in your purse (cell phone, keys, credit card, and coupons).
- Wear comfortable shoes.Although stilettos are much more stylish, they wouldn’t be the best choice to wear on Black Friday. The shoe might be the most important item of your Black Friday outfit. It’s always important to go with a comfortable shoe. Remember, you may be traveling to many different stores, so go for a flat or a short boot, something you can easily run around in and slip in and out of. Choose a shoe that you don’t mind getting a little bit dinged. Leave the fancy shoes at home – slip-ins are the way to go.
