Normally we reserve our sale roundups for the weekend, but there must be something in the water today, because just about all our favorite brands announced a major mid-week sale of one kind or another. From Piperlime and H&M to Steven Alan and Rachel Comey, everyone seems to be in the sale spirit. Below, our guide to what you can find where.
Rachel Comey: Rachel Comey has no brick-and-mortar stores of her own and as this is only her first full season of e-commerce, this is technically the first ever official Rachel Comey sale. And what a sale it is! Starting today, spring and summer dresses are 40% off, as are warm weather jackets and tops, Comey's first swim collection, and, of course, those covetable shoes. Everything is predictably drool-worthy, but cheap it is not—nor is it returnable, so shop judiciously.
Intermix: Intermix has just added an additional 30% off sale items, which is quite the boon if you've been holding out for a new Equipment blouse or rag & bone blazer. There are hundreds of sale items and they're all eligible for the extra reduction.
Piperlime: There are literally thousands of items up for grabs at Piperlime's biannual lime-tag sale, and today only they're all an extra 15% off. If you're on a super-tight budget, hit up the "Fab 50 Under $50" selection, which is exactly what it sounds like. Lacoste jelly sandals are going for $20, Hive & Honey maxi dresses are going for around $30, and bikinis from Marc by Marc Jacobs and Ella Moss are about as good a deal as you're going to find.
Theory: A go-to brand for sleek basics, Theory's private sale is a work wardrobe's dream. Shift dresses are in the $150-$250 range, blazers are around $200, and trousers and skirts are anywhere from $100 to $200. It opens to the public tomorrow, so browse before it's been plundered by the masses.
Helmut Lang: Not everything at the brand's summer sale is cheap (a waxed jacket we've been coveting all season is marked down to a still-aspirational $777), but absolutely nothing is boring. The dresses might be your best bet here, and if you have a city wedding to attend this summer, we suggest you take a look at this draped jersey dress going for $222 or this asymmetrical voile LBD for $312.
H&M: This one's not online, but chances are there is an H&M within shopping distance of wherever it is that you're sitting right now, which is convenient for you because the chain just unleashed their summer sale. It's going to be a shitshow, of course, but here's why it's worth it: tops starting $5 and dresses starting $10. If you can't sneak over there before the rush hour crowds throng in, brace yourself for a discount bin fight or two.
Steven Alan: The Steven Alan sample sale launched this morning, and while some favorites (Alan's classic shirtdresses, for example) have already been devoured, there are still some scores to be had. The wear-everywhere Danielle dress is still available in a handful of sizes and fabrications, as is the all-season, keep-forever boyfriend shirt. Move quickly if you want something, though—the remaining items will likely go the way of the shirtdress before much longer.
Bergdorf Goodman: If you've been holding out on the Bergdorf summer sale, you can now reap the rewards of your patience as the department store has just announced even deeper discounts. As of today, you can get up to 60% off designer apparel, shoes, and handbags, which means items originally over the $1000 mark are now in the (relatively) affordable realm of $500 and under.
Trina Turk: Trina Turk's summer sale is offering 60% off resort and spring, which means good things for any wardrobe that could use a dose of fun. Bright, feminine blouses are going for $75 to $150 while dresses are between $100 and $200.
SSENSE: The summer sale markdowns have just been upped to 50% off and 800 new styles were added to sale from brands like Alexander Wang, Balmain, Chloé, rag & bone, and Maison Martin Margiela. If this is normally a browsing destination for you, as it is for us, today might be the day to finally score those Marc Jacobs platforms you've been stalking across two seasons.
