You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
Did you all survive
Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Well, there are still some deals to be had online, with lots of retailers continuing the savings through “Cyber Week.” Especially of note: Lots of goodies still on sale at the rarely-discounted Moda Operandi, excellent things at Nordstrom, and a killer selection of boots and booties at Nordstrom Rack. All that, plus Madewell coats, Chuck Taylor high tops, Uniqlo puffers, Frye boots, and Isabel Marant beanies.
Madewell Denim Northward Crop Army Jacket
A slouchy, vintage-feeling jacket with a cozy faux-shearling collar.
Liana M’O Exclusive Set Of Three Socks
We love Liana socks — they’ve appeared
here and there on the site a few times, and now this set of three jazzy pairs is on sale.
Columbia Benton Springs Fleece Jacket
An excellent close-cropped layering piece for those days when even the parka doesn’t feel like enough.
Seven7 Dover Chelsea Rain Boot
A very affordable pair of glossy rain boots — we like the high ankle — that are extra affordable now that they’re on sale.
Biddeford Heated Electric Plush Throw
It might look like a regular plaid blanket, but this one’s heated. A great gift for someone who’s always cold.
J.Crew Fair Isle Crewneck Lambswool Sweater
A lot of Fair isle patterns can be too busy, but the pattern on this J.Crew number is just busy enough.
Royal Luxe White Goose Feather & Down 240-Thread Count Full/Queen Comforter
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Core Hi Tops
This cream-colored pair of Chuck Taylors would pair well with pretty much anything — they’re just begging to be dirtied and scuffed up.
J.Crew Cashmere Beanie
A very handsome cashmere beanie that would be a great gift for a
Portolano Ribbed Cashmere Hat
Marc by Marc Jacobs Bracelet
Pendleton Clyde Hill Commuter Coat
Coach Pearl Foldable Ballet
These black leather flats would save you from many a painful shoe situation, and they fold up nicely to be tossed in any bag, too.
Uniqlo Women’s Ultra Light Down Volume Jacket
There are still a few Uniqlo puffers you can get at a discount, including this nifty blue-green version.
Isabel Marant Chilton Ribbed Cashmere Beanie
If the Portolano cashmere beanie above is for a cool mom, this one’s for a (very)
Coach Giana Stretch Bootie
A surprisingly comfortable stretch bootie that gives you some height while protecting your ankles from sidewalk splashes.
EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46
Levi’s Wedgie Icon Selvedge Jeans
We don’t quite know why Levi’s named these jeans
that, but it’s a style and silhouette we very much approve of.
Everlane Cotton Crew
We love this
T-shirt and would layer it under everything from hoodies to Chesterfield coats.
Frye Tyler Leather Women’s Lace Up Boot
A solid winter(ish) boot that doesn’t scream “
Echo (2nd Generation) - Smart speaker with Alexa - Charcoal Fabric
The North Face Boy’s Fanorak Pullover
An anorak for boys that folds into itself to turn into a little fanny pack (get it?).
Zella Katya High Waist Recycled Crop Leggings
A cropped pair of
leggings for yoga, running errands, or doing nothing at all.
Madewell Simple Leather Crossbody Bag
A great little gift for a
teenage girl who’s graduated from the fanny pack but isn’t quite ready for a full purse.
Sperry Women’s Seaside Embossed Memory-Foam Fashion Sneakers
These might look like your average fashion-y sneakers, but they’re made with memory foam on the inside to be extra cushiony at the same time.
Tucker + Tate Woven Boy’s Jogger Pants
Because the little tykes need something to run around wearing during the holiday break.
Saks Fifth Avenue COLLECTION Cashmere Tech Gloves
Crewcuts by J.Crew Overnight Bag with Reversible Sequins
You’ve seen this before — a glittery sequin pattern that changes colors when you push your hand across it. Kids can’t get enough of it.
The Rail Mesa Chelsea Boot
A very stylish pair of coffee-colored Chelsea boots that’ll get you through April (remember to
Madewell Gauze Wrap Dress
We love how demure this wrap dress is — it’s tasteful without being matronly — and it’s also very cheap right now.
Birkenstock Madrid Waterproof Slide Sandal Narrow Width (Discontinued)
You’re not wearing these out right now, silly. Pad around the apartment in them, or wear them on your Rio trip. The model’s discontinued, so consider it a limited edition.
J.Crew Yuna Teddy Faux Fur Jacket
It’s not quite a Max Mara
teddy coat, but we can fully get behind the coziness of this J.Crew number.
Everlane Sun-Faded Slub Crew
A super-worn-in cotton crewneck T-shirt from the makers of some of our favorite
New Balance Classics MZ501v1
The dad classic gets a stylish upgrade with a caramel-colored sole and a handsome burgundy.
Diane von Furstenberg Small Zip-Around Wallet
Coach Nova Loafer Slide
There’s something delightfully gamine about these loafers — very
Madewell Denim Duster
Like a fun-aunt version of the Bill Cunningham chore coat.
Alternative Eco Drawstring Sweatpants
Alternative makes some of the
comfiest sweatpants, and they’re such a steal right now.
Leith Single Button Plaid Coat
We love the unusual pattern (very collegiate, no?) of this single-button coat.
Veja Two-Tone Metallic Leather Sneakers
