The thrill we get from shopping at our favorite local boutiques is really something special, but we also can't deny that sometimes nothing is better than an enormous, well-lit, super-stocked chain store. So, feast your eyes on our gotta-have-'em finds from exactly those spots. They'll help you prep for spring, survive winter, and up the sartorial ante of your wardrobe, all while giving you the benefit of mega-store pricing. As you know, if there's something you love at your favorite mass retailer, you'd better snap it up quick, since these days it's all about seasonal collections (and heart-stopping collabs!) you'll never see again once they're gone. If you don't want to be the frustrated eBay shopper hunting for this season's must-haves, next season, jump on these chain-store wardrobe essentials, handpicked by yours truly.
