The Only Black Friday Items InStyle Editors Will Wait in Line For
The hype around Black Friday might seem a bit extra. I mean, is it really worth it to drive to the store in the middle of the night to camp out in a line for $1 socks? Well, I must admit that the experience can be a lot of fun, especially if you're a shopaholic—like myself.
But for those of you who get queasy at the thought of long lines and mobs of shoppers, there are a few items that are truly worth pitching a tent for. Ahead, you'll find out the dreamiest products that InStyle editors will gladly wait in line for.
Canon EOS 80D Digital SLR Camer
"I feel like sales on clothes come and go year round. So I've got my eye on a few electronics. Yes, I will absolutely wait in line for a good deal on a new Canon camera (trying to step up my selfie game). And I might even upgrade my TV this year, too."—Alexis Bennett, E-Commerce Editor
Away The Medium
"Being a fan of both traveling and Gray Malin, this collaboration between the photographer and Away is a no-brainer. His prints make me happy even on the worst of days, and combining that with luggage that is (hopefully) taking me to a sunny destination that matches the photographs ... sold."—Rachel Crocetti, Digital Producer
YEEZY BOOST 350 V2
"I've been taunted by teasers of the new Yeezys on Snapchat for weeks, courtesy of the Kardashians, so I will have no choice but to queue up for the launch. Technically, my desired colorway drops the day after Black Friday, which, in a way, makes them even more covetable, if that were possible."—Claire Stern, Associate Editor
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color
"When I heard Rihanna was releasing a perfect, universal red-lip paint for her Fenty Beauty line on November 23, I started mentally preparing for the pain I'd have to go through on Black Friday to get a hold of this product. But I just know it will be worth it."—Jessica Kane, Photo Coordinator
Ugg 'Robinson' Stretch Cotton Robe
"I am really not one to wait in lines on Black Friday (as I am completely full/ exhausted from Thanksgiving dinner the night before), but I am always on the hunt for something cozy and warm during Black Friday. This year, I am in search of a new, comfy robe, and the UGG Australia Robinson Robe is perfect for comfort and pure post-holiday laziness."—Aaron Valentic, International Assistant
Madewell the walker chelsea boot in velvet
"I want these boots so badly. I almost don’t even want to mention them for fear of them selling out before I get them. Nothing would make me happier than owning these silver, velvet boots from Madewell. They’re chic, fun and can dress up any of my all black outfits for winter. The chelsea style and low heel makes for a comfortable shoe to wear while navigating the snow and surviving the cold."—Kelly Chiello, Associate Photo Editor
