We’re a day away from December, which means it’s time to begin holiday shopping — whether you like it or not. But with holiday shopping comes an upside: amazing bargains — and we’re taking advantage of Coach’s winter sale, which began Wednesday. But before you head over to their site to shop their markdowns (up to 50 percent off!), take a look at what we’re eyeing for ourselves and our loved ones.
Jillian Ruffo, Associate Beauty Editor: Recently, I’ve decided that my massive everyday bag isn’t always necessary — so I’ve been in the market for a simple-yet-chic crossbody that I can wear for work and play. I love this bag’s combination of leather and suede, and the size fits everything I need on a daily basis, without giving me the space to tote unnecessary clutter around N.Y.C.

Jackie Fields, Beauty Editor: Normally I wouldn’t dream of going broke for a backpack, but I have a major soft spot for camo. So while I plan on giving it to my boyfriend, I’m also excited about the prospect of wearing it on days when he doesn’t, too.

Alex Apatoff, Deputy Style Director: I LOVE high heels, but my 2017 motto is “Know Thyself,” and I know that I am going to get much more use out of a pretty pair of flats. These burgundy lace-up flats feel special thanks to the rich hue and cool details, and look great with jeans or a skirt … plus, they’re 30 percent off, so I also know that I’m not going to resist them for long.

Kaitlyn Frey, Style and Beauty Assistant: My boyfriend’s wallet has disintegrated beyond belief, but his picky nature prevents him from investing in a new one. Luckily, our tastes are almost identical, so I know this black leather stitched one will be a winner. And now with Coach’s insane discounts, there’s even more reason for me to pick up his Hanukkah gift now.
