On and around July 4 is when the summer sales start getting good. So when you’re not out doing cannonballs into your friend’s pool or barbecuing something delicious on a roof, you might as well buy some very discounted goodies. We found three pairs of festive summer shorts, the perfect linen dress, some Bang & Olufsen portable speakers, and a pizza pool float.
Club Monaco Amber Shorts
We’re kicking things off with a trio of shorts that are on sale. Scalloped things, we will admit, feel a little old news; but these chambray shorts from Club Monaco, with their delicate scalloped hem, feel a bit trend-resistant.
Original Price: $90
Vince Slouchy Shorts
Some elegant, pleated Vince shorts that (if paired with some nice shoes and a blouse) you could definitely wear to work.

Mango Medium Denim Shorts
Another (and our final) pair of shorts, which we can imagine ourselves putting on Friday and not taking off till Sunday.
