Baby, it’s still a little cold outside. So why not stock up on your winter wardrobe when retailers have slashed prices? They’re making room for new spring collections, which start trickling in early February, so if you’ve been holding out for that perfect coat, cozy sweater or pair of boots, now is the time to buy. Start this weekend—I’ve scouted out some serious end-of-the-season sales at a few of my favorite shops around town.
