Fashion moves at a rate much different than that of the weather.  Coats, sweaters, and winter accessories seem to go on sale immediately after Christmas, even if we have yet to receive our first drop of snow.  The great thing is you can find some awesome deals using your new Christmas money, the unfortunate news is there is little desire to purchase spring merchandise when you're scraping ice!

There are a few key items that you really should grab during this transition period:

Coats-  Coats are a great buy to be had after the holiday season.  Coats are expensive so getting them at a discounted rate is very desirable.  A coat is an investment piece, unlikely to change with trends (if you purchase well) and will last you seasons to come.

Basics- Stock up on basic tees and tanks when they are on sale.  They make for great layering pieces as the warm weather transcends.

Winter Accessories- Scarves, gloves, stocking caps, are all great buys at a discounted rate.  Many of these items are simple in design making them timeless.  Get the best deals after Christmas is over, although there may be slim pickings.

Not wanting to spend that cheese on winter goods?  Some great transition pieces are jackets, cardigans, and anything that you can layer.  Take for instance these two pieces.  Both could be layered with a long sleeve tee during colder times, then when it gets warm, swap out that turtleneck for a tank.  Not only is it practical to layer, it also polishes your outfit making for a well put together style.
