I’m browsing the summer sales in search of great pieces– the kind that will transition into fall. With big discounts available at even pricey retailers, it’s possible to shop some splurge-y stores without blowing your budget.
Of course, we all know that shopping sales can be an exercise in patience. It’s often difficult to find the items you want in the size you need; they’re on sale for a reason. But if you’re up for the challenge, the savings make the extra effort worthwhile!
First up: Anthropologie. Love the clothes. The prices? Not so much. But thanks to neutral color palettes and interesting shapes, many of the pieces are perfect year-round. Here’s my picks from the sale merchandise along with a bit of quick Polyvore wardrobing:
Deepest Fathoms Dress ($188 to $69.95), shown with leggings, bolero, tote, and booties. Love this cute silhouette, which could easily be worn as a tunic. I’m all for belting if you’re into that. Bonus: blue is going to be a hot, hot hue again this fall.
Cold Rush Cardigan ($98 to $49.95), Epehemera Forever Scarf ($38 to $19.95), and Tiny Bounty Hoops ($28 to $9.95), shown with black top, skinny jeans, and equestrian boots. The reviews on the cardigan are slightly mixed, but I always love this shape. That along with the chic color make me willing to try it. And for less than $10, the hoops are a great everyday option. My favorite piece of all? The fabulous chartreuse scarf, which screams fall versatility.
