The holiday season may be over, but January is actually prime time for treating yourself to a little gift. Why? Hundreds of designer pieces are currently on sale as retailers (including Net-a-Porter and Moda Operandi, two high-end sites that rarely offer such deep discounts) make room for the Spring and Resort 2022 collections. So we did a little digging for you and found 22 discounted styles—including “It” designer handbags, trendy boots, cozy cashmere and lots of beautiful dresses—to snap up before they're gone for good.
