If you’re exchanging Christmas gifts, this weekend is basically your last chance to shop online and have what you buy shipped to you in time. And if you’re not doing any gifts this year, already done with all that, or just looking to shop for yourself — no judgment! — then you can skip that warning and hop right to the markdowns below.
This week, both Reformation and Everything But Water are having large sales, so if you have a trip coming up to somewhere warm, those are definitely worth checking out. Other than that, there’s a sitewide discount at Madewell, plus a few others worth calling out. See them all, plus what to buy, right here.
Everything But Water: Going on vacation over the holidays? EBW is offering an extra 25% off sale merchandise through December 22nd. You can shop the entire sale section here, but to keep things manageable, sort by category. Here’s swimwear, and here’s resort, which includes things like caftans and cover-ups.
Reformation: The brand’s end-of-year sale started yesterday, and stuff’s going fast. If you’re hoping to snag something good, check it out sooner rather than later. A lot of what’s marked down is pretty summery or best suited for special occasions, with some stuff you can swing for December — like this long velvet dress (if you layer it) for $124 and the long-sleeve Violet Top, available in a few colors and prints for $90.
Madewell: Use the code ADDTOCART for 25% off your total purchase through this coming Tuesday. This plaid oversized topcoat will be $244 after discount, and this real good chunky turtleneck will be $82.50. Looking for denim? The 10-inch High-Rise Skinny will be $101, and the Roadtripper Jeans will be $56.
SSENSE: Lastly, a big designer sale. The sale section at this Canadian luxury e-comm site is marked down up to 60% off. You’ll have to pick through to find the good stuff — and things that aren’t still a wild amount of money — but if you’ve got the time, it’s worth clicking around. And hey, there’s no shame in sorting by price: low to high — there are lots of tees, underwear sets, and cute socks priced under $50.
