If you are starting to think about getting cozy for fall, you are not alone. It’s cozy girl season. And Saks’ friends and family sale — when the company discounts its new arrivals up to 25 percent, select beauty up to 15 percent, and jewelry up to 20 percent — is thankfully here. To help you navigate the deals, we’ve rounded up the standouts of the sale. Read on to see what to shop.

Best Clothing

As much as we love the coastal-grandmother look, sweaters don’t always have to lean into the aesthetic. We love this grungy, oversize knit you can easily layer over button-downs and flannels.

Because you’ll be investing in booties and snow boots, you’ll need a pair of jeans that looks good with either. Enter these distressed bootleg jeans from fan favorite AGOLDE. With a slightly distressed look and a lived-in feel, you can wear these jeans with your winter layers and long after.

Knitwear shouldn’t be limited to just sweaters. If you’re looking to lean in to knits, start with the master: Victor Glemaud. These trousers have a relaxed feel but a structured silhouette, so you’ll feel like you’re wearing sweats but still be work appropriate.

Best Outerwear

Perhaps the most versatile piece you’ll own, a structured blazer like this from ASTR the Label can be worn over your athleisure and jeans and then under your puffers and jackets.

Invest in interesting outerwear to make everything look instantly better — like this leather-look puffer, on sale of course.

Another cozy option from Free People, we love this outdoorsy green that will look just as good squeezing onto the train for your morning commute this winter.

Best Shoes

These chic leather loafers rival the coveted Gucci loafers at a fraction of the price.

Navigate unpredictable weather with these water-resistant boots that aren’t bulky or ugly. The smooth leather keeps your feet warm and dry — plus they’re also available in a sandy beige.

Ballet flats are back! If you’ve been looking for a pair, look no further than this studded pair from Loeffler Randall. With these pretty crystal accents, they’re anything but basic.

Best Beauty

The viral fragrance with notes of jasmine and saffron is rarely ever this affordable at 15 percent off. If the pricing is still too steep for you, here’s a pro tip: This body oil is also on sale for nearly $200 less.

Winter weather means winter skin. Tackle dryness with this color-changing balm. It adjusts to your body’s pH so it will always have a flattering shade.

If you’re going to invest in one high-end foundation, let it be this one. The foundation makes the perfect base for a lit-from-within glow. You can build on the coverage without looking cakey, and it’s long-lasting. There’s a reason it’s a best seller and a favorite.

Nothing is cozier than a bath. This Verden oil — founded by Charlotte Semler and Arabella Preston, who are behind Votary skin care — leaves your skin feeling smooth and not sticky. It smells like a jasmine field and looks great on your vanity.

Best Accessories

If you’ve moved past stowing away your leftovers in a reusable Target bag, it’s time to invest in something a little nicer. If your work bag is chic, your lunch bag might as well be too.

How soon is too soon to declare an “It” bag? We’ve had our eyes on Homage Year’s cool structured bags, and now they’re on sale in every color, so you can get in on this bag way ahead of the trend.

Something you’ll always need: a carry-everything tote. Will you take this to work with you or will you use it as weekender bag or will you just stuff things in it when you forget your reusable tote? It’s big enough to do all three, so it’s up to you.
