After a wardrobe audit, you realize your favorite pair of jeans are worn out beyond repair, or your favorite black heel cannot be saved by your trusty cobbler, which means it’s time to take advantage of the January sales.

If you decide to shop the sales this month, stay focused and invest in timeless design. Put your money where it is most needed whether it’s in the form of a classic camel coat or navy tote and ignore the overly trendy and flashy styles during sales time. Your forever wardrobe will thank you. Here is a roundup of our favorite classics that are on sale now.

As we transition into Autumn, layering pieces become the focus of the wardrobe. For September, DE SMET launched the Asymmetric Overcoat.
