January tends to be one of the less exciting months of the year. It's freezing, the holiday festivities are over, and it's probably a harsh slap back into reality for most people after taking some time off work. But one of the silver linings of the first month of the year is that all the best retailers are having major sales, and you can score deals on those pieces you've had your eye on for months. So if one of your New Year's resolutions was to put more thought into your outfits (or even if it wasn't), January sales are a great time to examine your current wardrobe situation to see what's missing and add new quality styles to your lineup. I'm good at finding deals throughout the year, so January sale season is when I really get to shine. Below, I've highlighted the top 25 sale items I'm currently eyeing from all the best retailers, such as Mango, H&M, and Net-a-Porter
This might be the coziest coat of all time. EmRata is a huge fan, which tells you something in itself based on her enviable style. Teddy coats are also one of those trends that come back year after year, so investing in this one while it's on sale is a move you'll thank yourself for later.
Mock croc always looks expensive, and this color is unique. Pair these with blue jeans for a cool tonal look.
Meet every fashion editor's favorite T-shirt. This crew-neck is the ideal fit, weight, and texture for a T-shirt. It also hardly ever goes on sale, so now is the time to jump on this if you haven't already.
Dream-party-dress alert! Between the leopard print and bold shoulder, this Ronny Kobo minidress is the perfect event dress for whatever you have coming up on your calendar.
A classic camel coat belongs in everyone's wardrobe, and this Mango version looks significantly more expensive than it is. Even though we're inching toward the end of the season, this coat is as timeless as it gets, so you'll wear it year after year.
A cozy turtleneck sweater is the same—buy it now while it's on sale and wear it for years.
These black ankle boots are classic enough to be worn with anything, but the square toe and architectural heel make them feel directional.
The perfect pair of straight-leg jeans does exist, and it's just $30 at Mango right now. This wash could be mistaken for vintage, and the cut on these makes them look equally as cool with boots as they do with sandals.
A knitted wrap dress will liven up your winter work wardrobe instantly. Pair this camel-colored style with knee-high boots for an outfit that goes from work to happy hour with ease.
I've been eyeing this beaded Cult Gaia bag for months, and now it's on sale for a ridiculously low price. It adds a cool texture to your winter looks and will make the perfect summer bag once the weather warms up.
One-shoulder silhouettes have been trending hard recently and show no signs of slowing down. This asymmetrical top pairs perfectly with denim for a night-out look you'll want to wear on repeat.
Madewell's jeans have a cult following for a reason—they fit perfectly and are shockingly high-quality for the price point. This perfect medium wash can be worn well into spring and pairs well with almost anything in your closet.
I know it feels weird to think about swimsuits right now, but warm weather is just around the corner, and you'll be so glad you picked up this chic tiger-print Ganni suit once it arrives.
A cropped hoodie is one of those versatile pieces you'll find yourself reaching for on almost every occasion—from running errands in leggings to layering under a trench coat with jeans. This burnt-orange color also makes it feel more elevated than your average hoodie.
This knitted midi dress is one of those pieces you'll be able to wear almost year-round—with a cardigan and boots in the fall and with sandals in the spring and summer.
If you don't own a sherpa jacket yet, this is your moment. Levi's sherpa jackets are beyond comfortable and add a cool texture to your outfit. This one is cropped, which makes it a unique outerwear choice.
The perfect necklace for layering. Your neck party could always use another member, right?
Okay, how cool is this print? The subtle animal print on this oversize blazer makes it even cooler.
January sales are the perfect time to stock up on basics like sweaters and coats that you'll continue to wear for years. This beige color will make this sweater one of your most-worn winter items.
The same idea applies to coats. Grab them now while they're on sale, and thank yourself next year when you have multiple to choose from as soon as the weather turns.
The oversize cut, unique color, and $20 price tag make this sweater a no-brainer.
Read through Zella legging reviews, and you'll be instantly convinced. They have a cult following for a reason. They hold you in without suffocating you, are ultra-comfortable, and don't stretch out even during the most intense HIIT class. You might want to buy more than one TBH.
These riding boots are as timeless as they come.
Hello, going-out top! Pair this bodysuit with high-waisted trousers and fun earrings, and your winter night-out look is complete.
If you don't already own a puffer jacket, now is the time. One of the warmest jacket styles for $66? It's a steal.
