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.
It’s officially the season for looking — and feeling — cozy, with discounts on some classic UGG boots, cozy boot socks, and some rarely on sale statusy bedsheets and duvet covers. And for those of you who prefer to look forward to a post-pandemic world, there’s a Tumi carry-on with your name on it. If you want even more sales coverage, sign up for our email newsletter and get it straight to your inbox.
First up this week is a very giftable three-pack of cozy boot socks from Amazon’s in-house brand Goodthreads — but we won’t blame you if you keep them for yourself.
Yes, a Vitamix blender is a splurge. But we’ve never seen this model this cheap — and though it’s lacking some of the newer features, like Bluetooth connectivity, it has all of the power you’d expect from a Vitamix.
If your free toothbrush from the dentist just isn’t cutting it anymore, consider investing in a reliable, powerful Oral-B alternative (that’s actually recommended by dentists).
Girlfriend Collective’s (very rare!) sitewide sale is still going strong with lots of picks left in lots of sizes — like these leggings with pockets that come in sizes XXS to 6XL.
Madewell is offering an extra 40 percent off already on sale items — like this packable, but still warm, puffer. Use code GOODBUY at checkout to get the discount.
This stripe-y, just-chunky-enough cardigan that screams “cool English teacher” is a cool $24.
A nearly half-off Dyson vacuum designed to go from hardwood to carpet and back again — and suck up all the dust in between.
With The Crown’s new season coming out in a couple of weeks, it makes sense that you want to dress like an off-duty British royal. This classic Barbour will bring you one step closer.
Here’s a very giftable beard-care kit for the guy who grew a quarantine beard this year.
A comfy and versatile (and very Outdoor Voices–esque) pair of joggers that will run you less than 20 bucks.
These discounted UGG boots may remind you of the aughts, but we promise they’re just as comfortable in 2020 (especially in quarantine).
At nearly 75 percent off, this cute carry-on in a variety of colors is one to buy now and stow away until travel is safe again.
This weekend, Anthropologie is having a sale on sweaters and tops — including this sherpa hoodie that looks like a slightly more polished version of that Baja hoodie you had in high school (but is just as comfortable).
We’ll never say no to a black turtleneck, and this one — with flared sleeves and a very chunky roll — is definitely different from all the other black turtlenecks you already own.
The Bloomingdale’s home sale runs through Saturday with up to 75 percent off tons of stuff to help you prepare for hibernation — like this actually nice-looking air fryer in a prim aqua.
This silk mask — a gentle option if you’ve been dealing with maskne — is not only on sale, it comes with seven disposable filters, too.
And even though linen season has come to a close, it’s always a good time to pick up an on-sale, statusy Matouk duvet cover (especially if you tend to be a sweaty sleeper).
