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.)

J.Crew is taking up to 50 percent off regular-priced items this month with code AUGUST, including this Irish linen button-down that one Strategist editor says is “light without feeling insignificant” and easy to layer.

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.

ISOPHO Beach Blanket

Speaking of swimsuits, we also found an excellent deal on one of our top-rated beach blankets. Along with being waterproof, reviewers call it “super lightweight and easy to pack.”

Anova Precision Cooker Nano
$111
$111

Here’s a sizable discount on one of our favorite at-home sous-vide machines for evenly cooked entrées.

OontZ Angle 3 Ultra
$40
$40

According to reviewers, this compact speaker “pumps out some high volume and doesn’t lose clarity.”

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.

Anthropologie is also taking 25 percent off select beauty, which just so happens to include our favorite dermatologist-recommend sunscreen for oily skin. It absorbs quickly and leaves no white cast.

Also at Anthropologie, this actually stylish compost bin is attractive enough to leave out on the countertop (and is on sale in white, too).

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.

For a limited time, you can bundle three pairs of underwear from Skims — one of our favorite brands for comfortable bralettes — for just $36. This pair is made from stretchy no-show nylon and is still in stock in sizes XXS to 4X.

And if you’re more comfortable in cotton, this jersey pair features a flattering high leg and cheeky back.

Nike is taking up to 40 percent off some of its best-selling styles, including these two-in-one running shorts that are designed for optimal breathability in high-sweat areas.

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.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
