Can I let you in on a little secret? February is one of the best times to shop. Yes, I know the weather can range from dreary to somewhat less dreary, but that's exactly the reason why I love to shop right now. With spring fashion on the way, retailers are gearing up for warmer weather by putting all of their winter offerings on sale, plus anything left over from the summer months to make way for their new collections. So, what does that mean for us frugal shoppers? There are a ton of fashion finds for the current tricky transitional weather at a major discount.

As I was scrolling through a few of my favorite retailers (as I often do during my free time), I came across a trove of finds that would not only refresh my wardrobe now but would also work well into the spring months. I can always count on J.Crew, Gap, and Banana Republic to serve up affordable elevated basics for every season, and they are even more affordable right now thanks to the sale. If your wardrobe has any holes—the perfect tank top! The perfect button-down shirt!—this is a great time to consider filling them.

Ahead, I've rounded up 24 finds from the three brands to freshen up your winter-to-spring style. From easy-to-style midi dresses and staple jeans to polished T-shirts and layer-able spring jackets, these are the kind of hero pieces you can wear now and for months to come.
