Happy hump day hunnies!
Christmas is here!!!! 🦌🦌🦌🎅🏻
Thanksgiving is cool but I’m here for the reds and greens, the lights, the temperatures dipping below 80 degrees! So cozy!
This temperature change may come with reevaluating some of the cold-weather clothes in your closet.
Before you head to Amazon, consider this.
Jackets and sweaters are some of the easiest “buy it once, buy it for life” items in your closet.
Jackets and sweaters are lightly used and tend to hold their style through changing fashions.
But when a Montbell down jacket is $259 and the North Face Parka comes in at a whopping $400, what’s a chilly girl to do? Well, besides scrolling down and seeing how you could win $1,000 from us…
You have a couple of options:
1. Buy it used. 🧥 Again, winterwear is the best season to buy used because of its longevity. If you’re going to think secondhand first, this is the season to do it.
Geartrade is one of our favorite online consignment shops for winter gear. You can find one of those North Face Parkas in excellent condition for just $126! REI also has an extensive collection of used winter apparel like this parka for $204.
You can also hit up your local ski shop ⛷️, most of them have a consignment section.
2. Find a dupe. If you can’t find anything you like in your size on consignment, try a direct-to-consumer brand. DTC brands cut the middleman to offer higher quality more affordably.
One of our favorites is Quince, their $50 cashmere sweater is the lowest price on the market and has been tested by several journalists to last as well as its $300 competitors. Their packable puffer jacket is $70 and an almost exact dupe of North Face’s $230 puffer.
Wherever you shop this season, stay warm out there! 🧤
Until next time,
