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.
The state of sales is truly excellent as we close out this hot and sweaty week, with deep discounts on lots of things we’ve written about before. That includes a breezy linen shirt beloved by Strategist editors, an easy-to-use sous-vide machine for evenly cooked entrées, and our favorite dermatologist-recommend sunscreen for oily skin. (And if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)
You can also take an extra 50 percent off all J.Crew Factory sale items with code AMAZINGSALE — including this chunky chain necklace that’s now down to just $10.
If you’re still on the hunt for a great swimsuit (or just want to add another to your rotation), here’s a ’90s-inspired bikini top that’s still in stock in sizes XS to XL.
And the matching bikini bottoms.
Nordstrom just added lots of new markdowns to its sale section, including these shearling-lined clogs for fall mornings.
And an 18-karat gold-plated stud earring, down to just $8.
Send the little one off to school in these classic (and supremely) comfortable New Balance sneakers.
We’ve long appreciated linen sheets for keeping cool in the summer. And given how expensive they can be, we especially appreciate them when they’re 30 percent off.
This quilted Steve Madden piece is similar to Bottega Veneta’s coveted Cassette bag, only much (much) cheaper.
Nordstrom Rack or an Italian mid-century eBay find? Your friends will never know.
And if you’re more comfortable in cotton, this jersey pair features a flattering high leg and cheeky back.
A stretchy cardigan for overly air-conditioned yoga studios (that easily doubles as a going-out top).
And finally, here’s a rare deal on the always-trending Air Max 97s, this time with subtle rainbow stitching.
