You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
Labor Day’s come and gone, but the sales are still excellent — particularly when it comes to fall-appropriate wares, like a Barbour-esque coat from Need Supply, a pair of Fashion Timberlands, and a cozy, cropped sweatshirt from Everlane.
Yeee! A few new things have been added to Everlane’s Choose What You Pay section, including this cropped sweatshirt that’s very Off-Duty Model. (And available in a whole bunch of colors.)
And these stretchy wide-legged cropped pants with retro front pockets are 40 percent off.
A nubby fleece jacket made from 100 percent recycled fabric.
Some waterproof Tims with a sleek, somewhat pointed toe and low wedge heel.
This duffel from Lululemon has a “sweaty unmentionables” pocket.
All sale items at Anthropologie are an extra 20 percent off at checkout. This here is for the little one in need of a kicky new lunch bag.
There’s a lot of makeup from brands we like on sale at Anthropologie. This Make Beauty blush is meant to provide a “translucent, natural glow.”
This Ilia lipstick crayon (available in a range of reds) combines smudge-free color with “healing” sesame, rose hip, and papaya oils.
Your beachside time-share may have ended, but you can still look like you just got back from the beach. This hair mist was made from Pacific sea salt.
A sweet little blouse that’s not sickly sweet.
A striped BAGGU canvas tote will never go out of style.
A henley from Billy Reid in a very autumnal shade of terra-cotta.
This was one of the runners-up in our search for the next status water bottle.
For eight bucks, how can you resist?
This is a very excellent price for this very handsome Clare V. fanny pack.
A purply addition to your stripes collection from stripes-specific line KULE.
Another men’s henley (perhaps we’re nostalgic for 2017?), this one from Frame.
If there are any fall weddings on the horizon …
A running tank from Splits59 that’s reminiscent of (but a lot nicer than) the one you wore in high school.
This neon-yellow A.L.C. going-out shirt is sort of secretly also a machine washable T-shirt that you can wear to run errands.
A Barbour-esque jacket from Need Supply’s house line.
Another very fall-appropriate jacket, this one from Camping Gear for Insiders store Snow Peak.
For those who don’t want to sacrifice style (and an extra few inches) when it rains.
All things being equal, we probably would not buy a heart-shaped casserole, but this puppy is $40, and the color is cute.
This is sort of the two-piece equivalent of the Amazon Nightgown Dress.
These wireless headphones from JBL last for 16 hours between charges.
A jaunty pair of loafers that’ll get you excited about fall.
Just a reminder that the Nordstrom Summer Sale is still kickin’.
Same with the SkinMedica sale at Dermstore. This dermatologist-approved retinol cream will perk things up while you’re sleeping.
We cannot resist a scalloped anything, let alone a 75 percent off throw pillow.
This square colander from Joseph Joseph is perfect for blueberries and black beans.
While we’re in the bargain bin, this is a good price for some simple Calvin Klein undies.
It works out to three bucks a bowl.
Not the best discount in the world, but we were very taken with this Orla Kiely backpack.
Not quite a cowboy boot, not quite a Chelsea boot, but somewhere in the middle that feels right.
If we were going to get married again … we’d splurge on this red Rodarte dress.
These 400-thread-count, 100 percent cotton sheets from Boston Linen Co. (which one reviewer said are “like sleeping on the best hotel bed”) are on sale today only.
Also on sale today (Friday) only: this inexpensive (ish) “starter” projector from Anker. There are a bunch of other Anker projectors on sale, too.
