january top five.

Most people I talk to during January are aching for it to be over as quickly as possible.  The first week is exciting – a new year, a new outlook.  Then you realize the late sunrise makes you sleepy and the early sunsets make your fitness resolutions feel impossible.  On top of that, your outfit choices go from creative to whatever will keep you the most warm.  Are you sick of your sweater selection yet?

You’re in luck!

January retail sales always cure my winter fashion blues.  After the holiday rush is over, retailers are trying to reel you back in to boost sales and rid their winter inventory before spring takes over.  It is a great time to buy higher quality at lower prices, and also find trendy pieces at discount that weren’t worth the splurge last year.  You will find a lot of final sale restrictions on these items, so make sure and shop brands you are familiar with and trust the fit, quality and size.  Here are the top five on my radar:

Banana Republic
Although my style isn’t always as preppy as this brand, I constantly find key pieces to add to my office wardrobe.  The fit is wonderful and the quality will last for years if well taken care of.  Today only, the BR sale is 40% off with code BR40.  Plus, get free shipping when you spend over $50!  Take a look at my favorites.

BR 40

Crossover Turtleneck Tunic
Ruffle Inset Top – Black
Striped “Le Tee” Shirt
Faux-Leather Hem Shift
Tassel Ring Pendant Necklace

Urban Outfitters
Not only do I love this store, but I enjoy visiting their website to shop and get outfit inspiration.  It is eclectic, fun, and refreshing.  I’m still patiently waiting for a brick & mortar to open in Des Moines.  Please?  Right now, they are running an In The Bag Sale – women’s sweaters start at $19.99 and dresses at $29.99.  Time to stock up.

Ecote Curl Up Cardigan

BDG Katie Flannel Button-Down Shirt

J.Crew Factory
I shop this website regularly to find basic long and short sleeve tees, sweaters, and accessories.  You get quality J.Crew products at budget prices.  When items go on sale, you can feel even less guilty.  Right now, they are doing an extra 50% off clearance items with code SALETIME.  Let’s fill that shopping cart!

Personal Favorites:  Chevron-stitch Boatneck Sweater $38.99  Intarsia Ski Scene Sweater – $43.99  Vail Parka – $138.99  Drapey Knit Dress – $36.99

Talk about a sale.  This UK retailer is promoting 70% off select styles and I couldn’t be happier. Sizes may be limited, but if you’re still envying that sequin dress or faux fur jacket, now is the time to snatch it up.  There are some serious steals you can’t miss.

Topshop – Sale & Offers
Personal Favorites:  Glitter Star Sweatshirt – $35.00  Black Cut Out Dress – $60.00  Cord Button Front Midi Skirt  Longline Ribbed Border Crew Jumper – $35.00

If you’re budget is really tight, or you’re a bargain hunter, stop by H&M right now.  Already known for a low price point, their current sale has items marked down even further.  If you’ve never shopped an H&M, be careful with sizing.  There is no consistency between items so read reviews and check sizing charts.  Free shipping with code 3289 until Jan. 13th!

H&M – Ladies Sale
Personal Favorites:  Linen T-Shirt – $4.99  Lined Boots – $19.99  Ribbed Hat – $4.99

Now get busy, you have shopping to do!  Enjoy.
