Welcome to Nice Saves, BAZAAR’s destination for the best editor-approved sales from across the internet each week. Here, I'm dedicated to uncovering can't-miss deals for the good of your closet.
During my morning commute, I've been reading A Harvest of Thorns by Corban Addison, a fictional exposé of the global fashion supply chain based on real-life interviews Addison conducted with the survivors of a 2010 factory fire in Bangladesh. The book is an absolute must-read, and it's why all thirteen of this week's Nice Saves are from eco-conscious brands that factor in both people and planet— because true fashion lovers care about the story behind every item they own, including who made it, what it's made of and where it was purchased.
I'll save you the hours-long lecture on sartorial sustainability and geopolitics and offer you a challenge instead. Rather than loading up on trendy fast fashion pieces, I propose you use this year's Labor Day sales (of which there are many) to expand your fall wardrobe wisely while supporting sustainable designers. Nordstrom's Sustainable Style section and Net-a-Porter's NET SUSTAIN line have a treasure trove of organic, recycled, and responsibly sourced sale items just waiting to be discovered— and at MatchesFashion, you can use the promo code EXTRA20 for an extra 20 percent off select sale styles, including dozens from forward-thinking brands like Stella McCartney, Ganni and The Elder Statesman.
From discounted designer handbags to half-price cashmere sweaters, there's no shortage of eco-conscious fashion brands to choose from this Labor Day weekend. Perhaps you're after a new Farm Rio blouse, a Mara Hoffman top, or a pair of Adidas sneakers— or maybe you've got your eye on one of the last Gabriela Hearst-era Chloé bags. Personally, I'll be spending the weekend stocking up on DL1961 denim, Everlane tees, and Reformation dresses while their end-of-season sales are ripe for the picking. Happy hunting, whatever it may be!
Joya Ribbed Organic Cotton-Blend Tank
Though brands' greenwashing marketing campaigns would like you to believe otherwise, only 1 percent of cotton grown worldwide is organic. It's a stat that sustainably-minded labels like Mara Hoffman are looking to change by using strictly organic, recycled, and regenerative cotton to make far-from-boring basics like this rib-knit tank. I've been eyeing a long-sleeved Mara Hoffman top and midi dress with the same piping detail that are on sale, too.
Vista Striped Upcycled-Cashmere Sweater Vest
I fell in love with The Elder Statesman's tie-dye prints and upcycled knits years ago as a fashion closet intern. I've been hunting sale sections religiously for the label's luxuriously soft fabrics ever since. At 65 percent off, this layerable sweater vest is what early fall dreams are made of.
The Italian Leather Day Glove
Everlane— more specifically, the Everlane sale section— is my go-to spot for no-frills wardrobe staples like these cult-favorite Day Glove flats that are 30 percent off over Labor Day weekend. While most footwear brands are secretive about sourcing and production, Everlane shares exactly where each pair is made and even offers a glimpse inside its factories. On top of excellent fits and fabrics, it's this transparency that's kept me a loyal Everlane customer for years.
Eden Denim Jacket
Denim production is notorious for its excess water consumption, so as of late, I've been making a conscious effort to shop at sustainability-minded denim brands like DL1961. While a conventional pair of jeans can require up to 1500 gallons of water, DL1961's waterless system uses less than 10 gallons per pair. The promo code LABORDAY23 will earn you even deeper discounts on fall essentials like this light-wash denim jacket.
Arco Cashmere Sleeveless Turtleneck Sweater
Reformation doesn't have sales often, so when they do, items go fast. I'm making a bee-line to this chocolatey sleeveless turtleneck made with 90 percent recycled cashmere. Its timeless, versatile silhouette makes it the ideal layering piece for transitional early fall outfits.
Chain-Embellished Leather Tote
The clock's ticking, Chloé fans! There's little time left to grab Gabriela Hearst-era pieces like this sleek chain-embellished tote bag. Her three-year tenure at the French house proved that it's possible for luxury brands to take radical steps toward sustainability, and it's safe to say Hearst's Chloé pieces will soon be as covetable as Phoebe Philo's Céline.
Jozey Wide-Leg Jeans
Ganni's responsible sourcing, carbon offsets, and re-sale program prove that progress, not perfection, is what truly matters in 2023. These high-rise black jeans are made from organic cotton and cut with a dramatic ankle-length flare to show off your favorite summer sandals now and fall boots come October.
Fringed Intarsia Cashmere Scarf
Don't let the beach weather this weekend fool you, scarf season will be here before we know it. Knit from a kaleidoscope of responsibly sourced cashmere yarns, this cozy Gabriela Hearst scarf will be your new favorite statement piece come November.
Ultraboost Light Shoes
Made with recycled polyester and Parley Ocean Plastic, these Adidas by Stella McCartney Ultraboost sneakers prove that sustainable footwear can, in fact, be quite stylish. A subtle cheetah print sole gives this all-black colorway just the right amount of pizzaz.
Lace Inset Blouse
Though Farm Rio is best known for its bold colors and tropical prints (many of which are on sale, too), it's the Brazilian label's attention to detail with understated pieces like this lace-inset blouse that really makes me swoon. As does Farm Rio's commitment to reforestation and meeting the U.N.'s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
Mixed Media Asymmetric Sweater Dress
This fall, do your skin (and the ocean) a favor by ditching polyester and acrylic sweaters for Naadam's responsibly sourced cashmere. Unlike most brands, the materials used to make Naadam's versatile basics— like this mixed-media sweater dress— can be traced back to the exact Mongolian goat farm.
Jessica Rodriguez Duck Tote
It's much easier to remember to bring a reusable bag when it's as cute as this Baggu Duck Tote designed by Jessica Rodriguez. Designed with organic cotton canvas, sturdy top handles and an adjustable shoulder strap, it can go anywhere and carry anything.
Marlin V-Knit Sneakers
I've been itching to buy a pair of Veja sneakers, and I'm not too proud to admit it's because they're worn by celebrities like Emma Watson, Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, and Emily Ratajkowski. With ten pairs on sale at Net-a-Porter for under $125, I think it's time to take these affordable eco-friendly sneakers (They're made from 100% recycled plastic bottles!) for a test drive.
