Not going to lie: Whenever I buy something without much reason on the pure basis of I want it, I feel a pang of guilt. But during the sale season? I like to think the discount itself is enough to justify buying an entire batch of new clothes. The holidays may be over, but the holiday sales are still running, and the markdowns are getting even better. 

And unlike most times, I'm actually browsing for staples I need, which means I've devoted even more time than unusual combing through every sale on the internet. Surprise surprise, my current shopping list includes coats of every style—from heavy-duty puffers to timeless trenchcoats—but there's also a bit of fun and trendy footwear included too. Everyone always talks about being the early bird, but in this case, it pays to wait, as many of the sale items below are marked 50% off and more. Now that I've awakened your inner shopper, it's time to get to work. Keep scrolling to see all of the discounted goodness below.

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
