Summer Sales Are Amazing Yet Stressful, so I Found the Best Pieces Worth Buying

Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour

I think the headline of this story really says it all but, in case you want the extended version, I’ll go ahead and elaborate. Sales, in general, are a lot to digest. They usually happen across all your favorite sites all at once, there are way too many pages of product for even the sharpest human mind to digest, and they can be a major time suck. Not to mention, even if and when you’ve gone through them all, how do you narrow in on what to actually buy?

I’ve been doing this (professionally) for over six years, and I still don’t have the answer to that question, but I will say that practice definitely does make it a little easier. On that note, I thought I’d help you guys out today by not just telling you about some of the best summer sales going on right now, but showing you my top picks from each. To see what marked-down pieces I’d buy from Net-a-Porter, Nordstrom, Topshop, H&M, and more for this season and beyond, just keep scrolling.
