The Fashion-Conscious Guide to Shopping the Sales

By

The day after Christmas brings with it ample opportunity to return the presents you didn't love — and a chance to hit some of the biggest sales of the year. Look for things that will bring novelty and impact to your wardrobe, with extra points for pieces you can wear this spring. We've rounded up our favorite colorful, interesting, and timeless pieces from the glut of designer items now on sale — some of which ring in as low as $20 (like J.Crew's ever-versatile white patent-leather belt), and with many less than $300, like 10 Crosby Derek Lam's sheer striped blouse. Click through our slideshow to see all of our picks from the post-Christmas sales.
