Still not done shopping? Neither am I. Not when there are cool places like Zara, H&M and Anthropologie to check out. Next week we will cover all the cool kids’ sales (Hanna, Tea, Boden) during back to school week, but right now, it’s all about you. Fortunately, I’ve done a little legwork – or, in some cases, computer work. Here, the best buys from the summer sales, and they can all be found right here.
If you’re looking for special pieces that will easily transition from summer to fall, the summer sale section is not to be missed.
Pick: Light cardigans, easy dresses and great accessories. (See all my picks, above)
Skip: Anything super-summery or trendy. You may not love it next year.
The more you spend here, the better the quality, which is why it’s a great idea to take advantage of sales.
Pick: Clean classic pieces like the frayed structured jacket, $40, poplin shirtdress, $36, and asymmetric peep toe stilettos, $20
Skip: Trendy items like the crossover strap sandal, $20, or potentially frumpy pieces like the pleated skirt with elastic waist, $30
A great source of inexpensive updates and everyday basics.
Pick: Jersey tank, $5, patterned dresses, $15, and denim jacket, $20
Skip: As with any store, avoid uber-trendy items like crop tops, midi skirts and bustiers
