All of those Memorial Day deals in your inbox felt crazy, I know. Too good to resist. But if you did, if you were patient, your virtue is about to be rewarded. Shopbop, Barneys, Saks and Net-A-Porter all launched their summer sales today, and there are goodies aplenty.
Shopbop: The best thing about the Shopbop sale? All of my picks would transition to fall so seamlessly, it’s practically a fall preview sale. If you’re after any Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone or boyfriend jeans, those were the standouts in this crop.
Sweater, T by Alexander Wang, $113 (40% off) / Newbury booties, Rag & Bone, $346 (30% off) / Petty booties, Sam Edelman, $91 (30% off) / Stratus sweatshirt, Helmut Lang, $168 (20% off
I know that Helmut Lang sweatshirt doesn’t look exciting, and it’s only 20% off, but when you’re wishing you had a cool jacket to throw on over a gauzy dress all summer long? This is the one. Oh, and I actually have those Sam Edelmans – they’re fantastic for summer, but they run at least a half size big. Word of warning.
Barneys: Jewelry is the big ticket pick for the Barneys sale – it’s almost never marked down, but there are five pages of options this time around. Gorgeous costume options from Lanvin, Balenciaga and Marni, as well as fine jewelry choices. It’s also a great time to splurge on one really edgy fashion piece you’ll cherish – like possibly that Rick Owens jacket.
Musk Quartz earrings, Sandra Dini, $279 (60% off) / Solange lapis necklace, Aesa, $399 (40% off) / Howlite bracelet, ALC, $199 (40% off) / Mateo necklace, ALC, $99 (40% off) / Asymmetric jacket, Rick Owens, $849 (40% off) / Tweed Jacket, ICB, $379 (40% off)
Net-a-Porter: I wait every year, like a panther in the tall grass (with a gold card), for Net-a-Porter’s spring markdowns. Bags and shoes are where it’s at with this sale, but you have to move fast – NAP shoppers are pros.
Market tote, Jil Sander, $770 (40% off) / Envelope crossbody, Sophie Hulme, $290 (30% off) / Patchwork shoulder bag, Kenzo, $480 (40% off) / Colorblock suede sandals, Marc by Marc Jacobs, $178 (40% off) / Yas satin slippers, Charles Philip Shanghai, $108 (30% off)
Saks Fifth Avenue: Another great bags & shoes sale, but more classics than edgy picks. It’s also a great time to stock up on no-brainer closet staples from contemporary labels like Tory Burch and Vince.
Gommini suede moc, Tods, $297 (40% off) / Yves sandals, Chie Mihara, $238 (30% off) / Nicky silk cardigan, Tory Burch, $195 (40% off) / Marled pullover, Vince, $147 (40% off)
Is there a single thing from that last pic that isn’t in my shopping cart right now? No, no there isn’t. But of course, what I really want to know is: What are you buying??
