Believe it or not, right now is a great time to do some winter shopping. I know the stores are rolling out the spring items, and if you are like me, you are really ready for spring clothes and spring weather, but now it also a great time to get some amazing things at great prices that you will (hopefully) wear for several years. I really love getting the pieces that I have had my eye on for a while and are now on super sale. Plus, it will be cold for at least another 6 weeks or so, and you will have plenty of time to break in those sale picks this year.
My suggestion for buying right now is to get classic pieces that you will wear year after year. Sure, you can pick up some trendy pieces to wear for the next few months, but I think you should focus on those bigger ticket items that you can really save on.
Here are a few of my picks for what you should be buying now:
Unfortunately we are going to need our outerwear for a while longer, so now is a good time to pick up a nice coat to take you into spring and then to wear next fall and winter. I would splurge on a nice, classic coat that you can wear for several years. You can’t go wrong with a a bright red coat.
Another more expensive item to get now is a pair of great boots. Go for something not too trendy that you will love for years. These Boots would be great for just about any occasion.
The last item I would be on the lookout for are sweaters. They can be more expensive as well. I would stay clear of the trendy ones and go for something a little more timeless. I love this pink sweater and it comes in several colors. If you are wanting a cashmere sweater, now would be a great time to get one!
And if you are looking for more great sale picks, I’ve got those too:
So what are you shopping for right now? Winter pieces you have been eyeing? A few winter staples? Or have you moved on to spring?
