January tends to get a bad rap. Why? Because the twinkling lights have disappeared, the warm and fuzzy feeling of the holidays is gone, it’s cold and dark out, and Dry January means no one is going out.
But the first month of the year certainly has its perks. It’s an exciting time for new starts, motivation is at its peak, innovative ideas are oozing out of us, there are less social and after-work obligations, we get to catch up on sleep and good TV, and we can finally revel in winter activities without the crazy crowds.
Oh, and did we mention almost everything is on sale in January? All the chic pieces we were eyeing a couple of weeks ago have now dropped in price significantly (there’s nothing that perks us up after the holidays quite like a new pair of back-to-work shoes!). Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up some of the best sale items worth buying to put a pep in your step this January. Today, we’re focusing on coats and boots—two investment pieces that will last for years to come. Scroll below to scoop them up before they sell out. Enjoy your January, friends!
