Whether you have a few Christmas items to return or are just looking for some seriously good deals, this shopping period is worth a look. As always, I’ve edited it down to just my favorite pieces from my favorite retailers. As retailers add more to their sale sections, we’ll try to update our Best of Holiday Sales page, but for now…here are my favorites.

Abercrombie & Fitch – 50% OFF

Abercrombie is quickly becoming my go-to for interesting basics. Mike and I both LOVE their jeans, and I find myself reaching for their soft sweaters and interesting thermals over and over.

Anthropologie – EXTRA 30% OFF SALE

Don’t miss the winter hats, mittens and scarves. They’re some of the best around, and will totally perk up a winter outfit.

Banana Republic – 40-60% OFF

Take 60% off sale styles and 40% off almost everything else (the ‘just in’ styles are 20% off). Banana Republic is a master of the subtle-chic, so don’t underestimate any of the below pieces. (If nothing else, get the blazer. It’s stretchy and comfortable and amazing (plus machine washable — yassss!).

Barney’s – Picks From Their Sale Section

This sale is a little hard to shop, because items tend to only have a size or two left.  The best thing to do is to head on over, and filter down by your size.  That said, here are the pieces I’m currently debating….

Bloomingdale’s – Picks From Their Sale Section

Bloomingdale’s has all of my favorite brands. With free shipping for insiders (free to sign up), a 365-day return policy, and crazy sales throughout the year, they’re quickly becoming one of my very favorite go-to retailers. Don’t discount their in-house brands, either. They’re shockingly good.

Bonobos – Picks From Their Sale Section

Not only are we huge fans of Bonobos’ suits, most of Mike’s ‘party shirts’ are also from Bonobos, and they really have made man-khakis flattering.

We especially love Express for their affordable, party-ready pieces. (And if you’re considering a sequin showstopper, they have those, too.)

Intermix – Extra 40% Off Sale Section

This sale is INSANE.  We’re talking Rag and Bone jeans for $50, an IRO leather jacket for $500 (down from $1200), dresses (two that I own from this summer) marked down as low as $40, and all kinds of designer goodness for prices that make me go a little crazy.

J.Crew – Extra 40% Off Sale Section

Most of my favorites were just added to the sale section!

If you need to infuse your everyday uniform with a little something new, try LOFT. I’m especially loving the details: an interesting back, extra-big cuffs, a subtle velvet dot.

Madewell – 30% OFF EVERYTHING

Jeans, velvet tees, cute-and-cozy sweaters, gorgeous prints, shoes — we basically love everything.

Net-A-Porter – Selects From Their Sale Section

Mostly high-end stuff, but totally drool-worthy. I use this sale to splurge on the pieces I otherwise wouldn’t afford.

Back to top

NORDSTROM – Up To 60% OFF Select Items

I typically try to grab cashmere sweaters, jeans, and maybe a scarf or two. And don’t forget to grab a pair of sunglasses.

Soft Creams and Pretty Pastels

Dark And Stormy


Dresses and Such

Don’t Forget The Accessories

rag & bone – Selects From Their Sale Section

This is easy: my beloved high-rise skinnies have a few washes in the sale section, deeply discounted. These might be my most-worn pair(s) of jeans.

Saks Fifth Avenue – Selects From Their Sale Section

Saks has a very similar inventory to our other favorite retailers….but their online shopping experience isn’t *quite* as good.  Happily, however, this often means that Saks will continue to have sizes in stock long after other retailers sell out.  So if you’re bummed that your size is missing somewhere, try checking Saks.  And their post-holiday sales are insanely good.  (Short, though, so don’t hesitate.) Here are my favorites:

Shopbop – Selects From Their Sale Section

The best way to shop Shopbop’s insane sale section is to filter by your size and see what comes up. There’s all kinds of treasure buried in there. Here are my personal favs (and don’t forget about the sunglasses…!!).

Back to top

Splendid – 40% OFF

Every year Splendid comes out with a few pieces that are absolute perfection. They nail the shape, the color palette, and, of course, the softness. This year, I also found a few items for the guys.
