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.
Though the sun is setting a little later each day, there’s still lots of winter to get through. And yet lots of merchants are having sales on their cold-weather gear — including Urban Outfitters, Backcountry, even Anthropologie and Nordstrom — so now’s the moment to buy that new coat or pair of mittens, and you’ll still get plenty of use out of them before spring. (If you’d prefer to stay warm and cozy inside, don’t worry: There are lots of deals for you too.)
Let’s start at Anthropologie, which is having a massive sale-on-sale right now. You can take an extra 50 percent off already on-sale items in just about every category, but some of the best deals are on home décor — like this colorful striped pillow that’s just $20 at checkout.
This hooded Sherpa jacket also comes in white, black, purple, and even lime green — but we’re partial to this classic teddy-bear brown.
With over 3,600 five-star reviews, this is our pick for the best non-looping white-noise machine that you can buy on Amazon.
Urban Outfitters is having a sale on winter essentials, which includes this waffle beanie that’s available in olive green, navy, purple, black, and this cheery yellow.
These mittens weren’t hand-knitted in Vermont, but they do have a similar vibe to the ones Bernie wore at the inauguration.
There’s even more cold-weather gear on sale at Backcountry, like this Barbour-esque quilted jacket that has a fleeced lining for extra warmth.
This is a very good price for an all-down puffer jacket.
If the sweat suit you bought back in March is starting to show its age, replace it with this not-too-zhlubby tie-dyed set, starting with the crewneck top.
And here are the matching joggers.
Dermstore has extended its Last Chance Sale, so you can take an extra 10 percent off already on-sale products — like this mineral sunscreen from Coola, a brand that’s been recommended by dermatologists and described as baby friendly. Just remember to use the code EXTRA10 at checkout to get the extra discount.
These Nordic slippers from Deer Stags are among our favorite slippers for men — and make an excellent gift.
Here’s a handsome Luigi Bormioli carafe that you could fill with water while you work and wine when you’re done for the day.
If your home office has been getting a little chilly during the day, or your bedroom’s too cold at night, here’s a small but powerful space heater that has a fan built in for better circulation.
The bras from Natori are “comfortable, stylish, and supportive options for a wide range of sizes” and currently on sale at Nordstrom. But fair warning: You might have to go through a few colors to find your size.
And, finally, a classic black Adidas hoodie for everyday lounging.
