Update Your Wardrobe With These Winter Sale Finds

Pump some life into your cold-weather look without killing your budget. 

By |

If you’re anything like me, you’re currently suffering from a mid-winter closet slump—and a holiday credit card hangover. Luckily, there’s a budget-friendly solution: winter sales. Take a spin through my top discounted picks, plus tips on how to wear these closet refreshers into spring.

A novelty top can be a wardrobe workhorse if you plan accordingly. Take Lilith’s sheer silk printed pullover (pictured, above); it looks great, as shown, layered over a camisole or even a long-sleeve T-shirt. As the weather warms up, push up the sleeves and wear it with a lean board short (check out Vivienne Tam’s runway). Originally: $450, Now: $225; Moxie, The Orchards, 5936 S. Holly St., 303-694-0773, moxieinstyle.com

This utility jacket with southwestern accents is the kind of casual topper every girl needs for, say, weekend brunch. Pair it with skinny black jeans and a gray pullover, and finish the look with a muted print scarf. When the weather warms for good, wear it with gray shorts and an earth-tone camisole or throw it over your favorite sundress. Originally: $58, Now: $35; Starlet, 3450 W. 32nd Ave., 303-433-7827, shopstarlet.com

Many women (myself included) wear their ankle boots year-round, so investing in this style is never a waste of money. (Spoiler alert: Booties will still be on-trend next fall.) This dove gray version by Coclico will look sophisticated now when paired with white skinny jeans or leggings and an oversized gray sweater; in the spring, put them on with a denim or printed shirtdress. Originally: $428, Now: $298; Strut, 3611 W. 32nd Ave., 303-477-3361, strutdenver.com

Designer Alexander Wang is a pioneer of athletic fashion—a trend that shows no signs of slowing down—and sale time is the perfect time to nab a pair of his T By Alexander Wang mélange fleece sweatpants with contrast striping. Outfit them with an oversized chunky pullover or cardigan on cold winter days (wear a high heel to balance out the volume), and a slouchy white short-sleeve or muscle T-shirt for spring. Originally: $350, Now: $245; A Line Boutique, 5375 Landmark Pl., Greenwood Village, 303-773-8200, aline-online.com

A generously sized leather bag is a wardrobe essential. Splendid’s Tulum tote has enough interior pockets to stash all of your necessities and then some. The sage option (it’s also available in go-with-everything black) will add some life to winter neutrals and also accent spring’s 1970s-influenced brown hues. Originally: $328, Now: $229.60; Dragonfly, 3615 W. 32nd Ave., 303-433-6331, facebook.com/dragonflyapparel

If you’re looking for some serious clothing ROI, invest in a classic, four-season dress like this graphic knit beauty by Narciso Rodriguez. Its fitted, knee-length style is ladylike yet sexy (and that white panel is torso-slimming). Let it shine in spring with a pair of sexy pumps; the next couple months, though, call for an elegant stiletto ankle boot and a tailored jacket or cardigan to keep shoulders warm. Originally: $960, Now: $379; Max, 264 Detroit St., 303-321-4949, maxclothing.com

Designers have been slowly moving away from crisp, well-defined digital prints (see: Peter Pilotto) to softer, abstract art–inspired patterns (like brush strokes or inkblots). Wear this watercolor blouse by Parker & Clover layered under a winter white or blush pink cardigan now and tucked into a pair of white culottes in the spring. Originally: $218, Now: $109; Rebel, 5910 S. University Blvd., Greenwood Village, 720-283-1004, shoprebel.com

Those in the market for a leather jacket already know it’s a sizeable purchase, so any discount is helpful. This moto version by Closed, a German denim and fashion brand known for its effortless modern style, is a prime choice for its rich chocolate brown color. Plus, it’ll pair nicely with winter whites and creams, as well as spring’s earthy hues and gold tones. Originally: $792, Now: $633.60; Goldyn, 2040 W. 30th Ave., 720-489-0580, shopgoldyn.com
