We thought that Columbus Day was going to be the last big sales moment in October, but, boy, were we wrong. There are a bunch of great deals to be had right now: Everlane just replenished its selection of sale items, Bandier is having a 20 percent off Friends & Family sale (which applies on top of already discounted things), plus Nordstrom Rack has a bunch of great loungewear we want to wear through January. All that, plus our favorite bath tray, Susan Kelechi Watson’s tote bag, and Fitbits that are hardly ever this cheap.
The blue on this flattering cotton shirt isn’t a solid but a superthin micro stripe.
A work, weekend, day, night, wear-it-all-the-time shirt.
The cotton fabric on this white shirt has an almost sheer quality to it that makes it extra amenable to fall layering.
North Face makes a great puffy vest for layering under your favorite wool coats (in the event that you’re not looking to go full gorp).
We wouldn’t tie up all the strings on this kimono jacket, but keeping it in the office as an extra layering piece is a stellar idea.
A pair of medium-height shoes that you could wear to brunch, to work, to a party and look totally at ease.
We love how tailored this North Face hoodie is — it almost doesn’t look like North Face at all.
Another good layering piece for any winter travels you might have coming up (notice the flattering diagonal quilts along the torso).
We love a cactus, but sometimes even they’re too high-maintenance. Best to go with a faux version.
Just the sweetest thing tied around a glum handbag.
Another contender for “the sweater I keep at my desk when the office thermostat is set to kill me.”
This cozy cardigan is the one you would wanna keep in the closet for weekends when you don’t plan to leave the apartment.
We like how Everlane does slightly turned-up versions of the basics — this is a hoodie, but, like, a sophisticated hoodie.
