Warm gifts for knit wits!
No doubt you have your shopping list laminated and ready to go on Friday, right? From the desperate state of the retail industry, we're betting that just about anything you think you need and want will be on sale. But whether you're grabbing gifts for the holiday or indulging yourself, word to the wise: Shop basics! In particular, look for magnificent knits. They're commonly found in an array of colors, textures, styles, sizes, and quantities.
Insulate yourself and your wallet with a few of our favorites:
FALL INTO THE GAP
Grandma taught us that you can never have too many sweaters! From cardigans and wraps to cashmere and cotton, keep an eye out for warm, cozy, soft winter sweaters at the Gap. Don't forget the layer effect; pile them on and wear 'em well!
Basic doesn't have to be boring! We love the girlie details found on sweaters at Anthropologie. From rosettes to intricate crochet, the extensive assortment lets you tap into the depths of your femininity.
FOR YOUR CREW
If you weren't tapped into J. Crew before you saw the future first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, donning its styles, shame on you! We've always adored this label's stellar selections, especially its Cold-Weather Comforts offerings! Who can resist the cable-knit ballet slippers with pom-poms?
Whew, now, that's a hot flash!
This tip is 100% conflict-free. We get no money for mention!
