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.
We found a slew of very good sales to usher in the weekend, including discounts on makeup for glowing skin, an allergy-sensitive air purifier for pesky pollen, and (seemingly) every celebrity’s favorite hand sanitizer. (And as always, for more sales coverage, sign up for our email newsletter.)
This sunny anorak from Madewell has a sturdy hood and double-entry pockets to keep you (stylishly) dry on rain-filled days.
And we like that this workwear-inspired jumpsuit comes in petite, standard, and plus sizes, as well as three very spring-appropriate shades — a grassy green, bubblegum pink, and a classic white (no need to wait until Memorial Day).
Splurge on this asthma- and allergy-friendly smart air purifier from Dyson that connects to the brand’s app so you can monitor indoor and outdoor air quality and control the device remotely (plus it works as a fan, too).
This Mario Badescu set packs a double punch with a hydrating cleanser to remove makeup, dirt, and oil, and a toner to restore radiance for naturally glowy skin.
For the tie-dye fiends out there, these shorts look comfy to lounge in but stylish enough to wear out.
Head to Anthropologie for 20 percent off all bedding, pillows, and throws, including this floral duvet that gives off Midsommar vibes.
Anthropologie is also taking an additional 25 percent off already on-sale items, like this funky printed blouse from the same eco-friendly brand behind one of our favorite jumpsuits.
Pick up “the fairy godmother of all hand sanitizers” — beloved by multiple celebrities and said to double (or triple, really) as a “a makeup-brush cleaner, aromatherapy spray, and even deodorant.”
We’ve written before that SHASHI makes nice jewelry at affordable prices — like this modern-looking (not to mention well-priced) pair of gold hoops.
This folding cart will be especially useful when you’re wheeling around essentials for group park dates and picnics.
Take the perfect fit pic with the help of this rustic-looking mirror from Drew Barrymore’s home collection.
If you’re headed back to the office, consider this handsome pair of trousers for him in a universally flattering olive green.
We think you might enjoy your morning cereal a little more in this pastel, enameled steel bowl from Hay (that also happens to be dishwasher-safe).
And scoop up this French artist-designed cotton towel that features a mood-lifting print.
If you’re excited to head back to the gym, trade in your old running shoes for these sharp white sneakers with cushy sole support.
And, finally, add a subtle pop of color to your makeup routine with this multipurpose shimmer stick from Fenty. (Beauty Insiders can save even more during Sephora’s spring VIB event, happening now.)
