CHEAP & CHIC: Rock The Winter Clearance Rack!


Our fave stores are fillin’ up with tonsa hot off the runway summer dresses, swimsuits and sweet sandals. Before you blow your babysitting bucks on stuff you’ll have to stash for months, hightail it to the sale rack. There’s plenty of stuff that was white-hot this winter, and will still be ultra-cute for spring. 75% off? Yes, please!

Sweet Sweaters -
Just ‘cause your extra-warm knits are stashed away, doesn’t mean you gotta say so long to all sweaters. Look for short sleeves, loose knits (pointelle, if you wanna sound like a fashionista) and lightweight cables.

NOW: $15

High-Waisted Pants -
Trouser jeans and wide legs are still rockin’ hard when the weather warms up. We heart them with a fitted cap sleeve tee and espadrilles. Perfect for showing off a fresh pink pedi.


Originally: $27

NOW: $17


Slouchy Berets - Hats off to hippie-inspired caps. Slouchy berets work well when the air’s still a li’l nippy. Keep it fresh by wearin’ it with a bright tunic, dark denim jeans and sandals. Tres chic.

NOW: $20

Bold Colors -
Jewel tones, acid brights and piles of primaries are our fave shades for spring. We love them everywhere—hats, scarves, shirts, dresses and, of course, shoes. Punchy slip-ons beat the blahs outta any outfit. They’re great with skinny jeans!


Originally: $44

NOW: $19


Scarves - Don’t wanna wrap up your scarves for the winter? Us, either. Trade in jumbo knits for airy, woven ones. It’s a great way to add a splash o’ color to whatever you’re traipsing around in! Pick one up in rose….it’s this season’s flowery femme.


Originally: $15

NOW: $15 Ok, so this is kinda cheating, but 15 bucks is pretty cheap, right? Sorry, we couldn’t resist with this one!
