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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A jaunty pair of loafers that’ll get you excited about fall.
We cannot resist a scalloped anything, let alone a 75 percent off throw pillow.
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.
