There’s always this odd time in the middle of a season when it becomes hard to shop. By now, retailers are starting to move out summer clothes to make room for pre-fall items. Personally? I tend to hunker down once we’ve hit the mid-season slump, saving my money for fall.
But, if you’re looking for staples—easy pieces that pull outfits together—to add to your closet, now is the time to buy. Sales are happening everywhere.
The best way to shop these summer blow out sales? Carefully. If you’re trying to shop wisely, make a list of things your summer wardrobe is missing. Maybe it’s another pair of denim shorts; a pair of black sandals; a distressed denim jacket. Whatever it is, a list will help narrow down your search and make the most of your budget.
Madewell is a perfect place to find some of these summer staples. Well made items on sale? That’s a win-win. Even stocking up on basic teeshirts is a good investment, especially good quality ones. Here, I’d grab tees, skinny jeans, or any kind of leather purse. J.Crew has a white dress—a perfect summer staple—on sale as well as strappy sandals, lightweight sweaters, and summer pajama sets. Another way to make the most of a summer sale is to look for a special piece. And when Anthroplogie has a sale, you shop it. Maybe its a dress for a summer wedding or a stunning bathing suit. (Either of the two, they have you covered.)
Other items to grab during a summer sale?
- A ruffled utility jacket. You’ll never run out of outfits with this piece.
- A lightweight scarf. This item will transition between seasons perfectly.
- Funky sneakers. Wear ‘em with jeans, shorts, skirts, whatever!
- Statement earrings. Change up an outfit easily with a new accessory.
