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.
In this week’s roundup of the best sales, we found a bunch of lightweight, easy-to-throw-on blouses and dresses that will still look put-together on Zoom calls with your boss. Plus, if you’re feeling the need to do some spring-cleaning (or purging), there’s a bunch of fresh bedding and towels up to 50 percent off.
“Relaxed” and “denim” are two words you rarely find back-to-back, but these high-waisted, wide-legged, sailor-inspired pants look comfortable enough for working from home.
Strategist writer Lauren Ro just picked up a pair of yellow Crocs to wear around the house and called them “hands down my favorite quarantine purchase to date.” If you’re not quite so bold to go for the bright yellow she did, here’s a more subdued (but still comfortable) white pair.
It’s rare to find any Apple products on sale, let alone with a 25 percent discount.
If you’ve been growing weary of your regular rotation of board games and puzzles, here’s a handheld version of Asteroids.
A hands-free, and surprisingly stylish, belt bag that’ll make it easier to keep track of all the bits and bobs you need on your next trip to the supermarket or walk around the block.
These cozy fleece high-rise leggings are designed for cold-weather runs, but with lots of pockets for snacks, they’d be nice for Netflix marathons, too.
These sweat-wicking shorts from Lululemon are actually designed for lounging around the house, not working out.
Stay hydrated with this extra-large S’well “travel” water bottle, even if you’re just traveling from the kitchen to your bedroom and back.
This supersoft, lived-in cotton shirt is also available in a stonewashed blue and a faded yellow.
If you’re looking for supersoft cotton sheets rather than a shirt, here’s a set from Upstate, made of crisp percale that they claim will get softer with every wash.
If you need a full bathroom refresh, Upstate’s full set of all-cotton bath towels are also on sale, in either navy or charcoal.
Madewell’s sale-on-sale is still going strong, with even more in-season picks an extra 50 percent off, including this lightweight floral tank.
Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream has a cult following among celebrities (and their facialists) and a price tag to match. Even with a discount, it’s still a splurge, but it’s so rarely on sale that this 10 percent discount at Saks is worth a note.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
