We recently resolved to start planning ahead and it’s given us a new appreciation for the end-of-season clearance. It lets us shop seasons early on a shoestring budget. Right now? Our sights are set on new outerwear.
If you’re like us, you find yourself focusing on the same things at the start of every December: what you need and what they want. Lucky for you, we’re spelling out the season's best styles to gift and to get. (Hint: With winter kicking in, a new coat is a must!)
It’s not officially winter, but the forecast tells another story—so we’re getting a jumpstart on our shopping for the season. First on our list? A coat and warm accessories. We scored them all for under $100.
This season, many of the biggest trends are also the comfiest—including classic ushankas, commonly called “trapper hats.” Aside from being ultra-budget-friendly, they’re throw-on-and-go-ready and work with looks across the board.
We hit the busy streets of Chicago in search of some needed style inspiration. The find? Much motivation, in the form of outfits featuring coats big on trends: We saw quilting, we saw color, we saw contrast sleeves aplenty—and these are the looks we can’t wait to copy.
Scottish kilts, ‘90s grunge, Daisy Duke. When it comes down to it, plaid is nothing new; it’s been associated with traditions, trends and people for centuries. But, this season, it has an altogether-different feel. Get set to work it outside the box.
He’ll wear it under a topcoat, under a sport coat and every which way in between. A quilted vest is one he’ll reach for repeatedly, thanks to its sporty-sleek look and effortless wearability. This season? He can’t go wrong with a cool camo style.
This season, we’re rooting for the varsity jacket, for him and for her. It’s a fresh alternative to a denim or leather jacket, and so easy to wear. (Just add jeans and a tee!) Love the look? Take your pick from our team of all-star styles.
We have the same style mantra every winter: Stay warm without sacrificing our style—or forgetting the rules of what works on our figure. This year is no exception. The one difference? Finally, the big trends are among the most flattering. We’ve got your coat-shopping guide.
We recently returned from the Sundance Film Festival, where we were hosting the popular Sears Shop Your Way Digital Recharge Lounge. Want an insiders’ peek at the celebs we saw and the Sears looks they loved?
