It’s here! I will be posting about the Anniversary Sale the next few days–trying to cover all the bases for you. I received a “sneak peak” at Level 4 shopping day today. If you are on Instagram make sure you follow me @stylebykaren7 as I often do stories & quick live videos.

You may be thinking–especially if you are on Instagram or Facebook that there is a lot more hype about the sale than even 5 years ago. I agree! Social media. Enough said.

Here are my top picks by category. As I mentioned in my previous post, the savings are significant on some items. I often make my picks based on that. There are always clearance sales on clothes, but novelty, unique pieces are harder to find on sale. I also choose my favorites based on what I’ve seen in person AND brands my customers and I have loved over the years.

Make a list. Shop smart. Don’t be overwhelmed.

I’m here to help. Yes, I write a blog, but I’m also a stylist working one/one with clients in person and virtually. This is what I love the most!

*** Each category shows a series of items with the links below the collage image. When you click on the links and shop it supports my business at no extra cost to you and I THANK YOU!

In addition I’m experimenting with a SHOP page and all the shoes and boots will be shown there. Shoes and Booties are there now and you can shop right from the page. I’ll be updating that throughout the sale with other items.


I have several leather jackets in neutral colors that I wear constantly and will continue to wear for more years. Mine are really more of a “3rd piece” than a coat. If the price point is more than your budget can handle, check out the non-leather options. The Kut jacket is machine washable. Click on links to see all the color choices for each item!

//1. Kut 64.90// 2. La Marque 365.90// 3. Hinge 199.90 //4. Marc NY 249.90//5. Blanknyc 64.90// 6. Kut 59.90//


I can’t say enough about Barbour. It’s waterproof. J Crew could be worn as a topper more than a heavier coat. Size up if you want to layer underneath.

//1. Halogen 159.90// 2. J Crew 184.90// 3. Tahari 149.90// 4. SOLD OUT // 5. Barbour 199.90//


AG, Rag & Bone are always customer favorites. I am partial to the Paige Hoxton because I love the higher rise. Madewell has a high rise too. Jen 7 has some nice color options. As you can see skinny, straight, boot-cut and boyfriend styles are all on the site. We are seeing a few less holes, but raw edges and step hems are still popular.

//1. Eileen fisher 118.90// 2. Rag & Bone 129.90// 3. Jen7 98.90// 4. AG 149.90// 5. Paige 109.90// 6. Paige 129.90// 7. Kut 58.90// 8. Madewell 89.90//

( limited sizes in many styles. Keep checking back to see if they come back in stock)

Tomorrow I’ll focus on HANDBAGS with a video I’ve done with guidelines on choosing the perfect bag.

So much more to come with even better recommendations after I see the clothes on more body types. Let me know your questions and your favorites!
