It’s about this time of year that I start to feel tired of my everyday winter wardrobe and look for ways to change it up. Like swapping in off-white jeans for black or dark wash denim. And doing a little smart shopping for a sweater with unique details, not to mention a cozy accessory or two.
Let me clarify that by “shopping” I make sure my first stop is always my closet. But if I’m really craving something shiny and new, I go straight to my favorite online retailers and scroll through their sale items. Yes, winter styles are already deeply discounted — the holidays have come and gone and resort collections have dropped. Now is the time to score some deals. We all deserve a little fashion refresh that you’ll be happy to re-wear next year — without breaking the bank.
From head-to-toe, here we go. This cozy faux fur hat was a bit of a splurge — 5 years ago! Its cute cat ears always put a smile on my face, not to mention the world at large. And it’s super warm yet lightweight, so it never gives me “hat hair.” Next up? This oversized fair isle sweater that sparkles with rhinestone buttons. It’s new to my wardrobe, but I did buy it on sale this fall. You’ve seen my off-white jeans in this 2022 post. They were a great summer wardrobe addition that are still going strong. Both my fuzzy tote and lug sole boots are new too, but both were “bargain” finds. I honestly think I’ve worn these boots at least 20 times since I bought them.
Are you a sale sleuth, too? I’d love to hear your tips!
Sweater: (Ganni, sold out) Loving this (argyle! 55% off!), this (starry cardi!), this (Rag & Bone in sunny yellow fair isle!) and this (designer with vibrant chevron pattern at 70% off!). I think any (or all) of these would give your winter wardrobe an instant style lift.
Boots: (Marc Fisher, under $100)
