Monthly Shopping Guide: What To Buy In January

I always like to start the new year off by editing my closet and ridding it of old items I no longer use or wear. I’ll then make a list of the pieces I feel are missing from my wardrobe and try to fill it in accordingly. Since there are so many winter sales and great deals going on right now, it’s actually a great time to shop and stock up on any winter staples you may have missed out on this past month. Since we’ll also be transitioning to spring in less than 3 months, I also like to grab a few items to stay on top of the latest trends. Below are all the items you should buy right now.

Statement Coat

January is one of those months where your outerwear is more likely to be seen than the underlying layers. This calls for a statement coat in cozy textures and fun colors.

Pieces for Now & Later


Trench Coat

Trench coats are a must-have in my spring and summer wardrobe. I love that they can be layered for winter but are just as useful when the weather gets warmer.

Alpha Industries

Camo Jacket

Camo is one of the few prints that I love because the masculine print gives an effortless and edgy vibe to any outfit. Layer this under your winter coat now and belt it over jeans for spring.
