Right now you’ve reached that winter point where all the holiday gifts have been opened and the new year is mere days away. In all likelihood, you’re freezing and the idea of sunny days and balmy nights seems like a far cry from reality at the moment but there is a way in which you can (almost) manifest yourself poolside with a piña colada: the post-holiday sales.
Sure, it’s tempting to scoop up the winter items you sadly weren’t gifted, but the more strategic move is to shop for the types of warm-weather essentials you reach for on a tropical holiday and in the summer months like swimsuits, sandals, and shoulder-baring dresses at steep discounts.
Michelle LeBlanc, founder and owner of the online boutique MILLE says, “It can be super tempting to dive headfirst into the new resort arrivals” this time of year, but “if you take a look at the sale sections online you can typically find a few good pieces at steep discounts leftover from summer.”

The shop owner recommends stocking up on swimsuits (duh), skirts, flat sandals, statement sunglasses, hats, and bright accessories (especially earrings) to wear with basics as well as sun-worthy dresses in certain fabrics. “Indulging in one splashy silk dress can be a good investment—you do need something for those Friday night surfside parties, right?—[but] I usually try to stick with cotton dresses that I know I will continue to wear throughout the summer.”
Whether you’re escaping the cold this January or getting a head start on your 2019 summer wardrobe, ahead, shop discounted summer items you can brag about the minute they’re in season.
