This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% our own.

When you live on a college budget, discounts and deals are everything. And as we close out the year and head into 2019, nothing feels better than a fresh, new wardrobe of garments and accessories to kick off the school year with. Whether you need to replace the hoodie you’ve been wearing since last February or just need something casual to wear to your family’s holiday party, the end of the year comes with Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and holiday sales galore – AKA the ultimate time to treat yourself without emptying your bank account.

This year, we’re hyped on holiday doorbusters from Aéropostale – because if there’s a sale, you can count on us to be first in line. Here are the five under $25 pieces we’re shopping first, so we can be merry and chic from Black Friday to New Years.

1. Graphic Tee

Graphic tees are a supersoft, low-maintenance way to make your outfit more textured and colorful. We love this one because it has old-concert-shirt vibes – just wear it over a turtleneck or pair with a denim jacket for all your winter OOTDs. This season, you can buy one and get two free at Aéropostale online or in stores!

2. Jogger

If you’re having an extended study session from the comfort of your bed, pair joggers with your coziest lounge top and fuzzy socks. But if you’re trying to channel some street style into your campus look? Wear with a white crop top, light-wash denim jacket and chunkiest dad sneakers you have for an outfit that’s athleisure AF. This pair in light heather grey will go with everything, and you can grab ‘em for as low as $12.

3. Pullover Hoodie

Fashion goal: Find a hoodie so comfy you can spend the rest of your life in it. With a grey hoodie like this one, your ‘fit will be covered for everything from finals week to winter break when you want to channel laid-back vibes and feel extra sporty. Buy it oversized if you’re interested in achieving an ~Ariana Grande in thigh-high boots aesthetic~ – but no matter what this fav comes in starting at just $12.

4. Ruffled Hoodie

A hoodie, but make it fashion. The pretty ruffled trim at the hem of this piece is game-changing, making it just elevated enough to wear with jeans, sweats, or whatever else you’ve got going on over the holidays. Grab one (or five) starting at $12 for a staple top that you’re going to be loving all-year long.

5. Puffer Vest

FYI that vests are cool, super warm, and these ones come in a variety of colors making them super easy to match your fashion aesthetic. We’re personally feeling the “Lavender Sunset” shade and just dying to wear it with some distressed jeans. Bonus: It has pockets for storing your snacks, lip gloss, or whatever other class essentials you need with you at all times. You can shop for just under $16 on Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

So, which of these picks are on your wish list? Nothing feels better than treating yourself to new clothes, and we hope you head into 2019 feelings fashionable AF from all the incredible holiday sales!
