The long weekend may be over, but we’re pleased to report the Independence Day sales are still in full swing. We found lots (and lots) of lounge pants, an excellent deal on running shoes, and some travel-ready gear for wherever you might be headed this summer.

Outdoor Voices is taking up to 65 percent off select styles as part of its OV Extra sale, including these leopard-print running shorts that one writer-slash-marathon-runner likes for their compressive (yet comfortable) waistband.

For cooler days (or over-air-conditioned gyms), here’s an equally excellent deal on the legging version.

If you’re mourning the loss of your work-from-home dress code, try these stretchy Theory x Uniqlo leggings. They’re still in stock in three different office-appropriate colorways.

You could also ease back into office attire with this aptly named pant from Everlane. It’s made from lightweight cotton and has a high (elastic!) waist.

We suggest pairing this provincial toile-inspired Laura Ashley sheet set with a French linen duvet cover.

Over at REI, you can snag these Saucony sneakers — which experts say are perfect for tempo runners and racers who prefer a speedier feel — for a very rare 50 percent off.

For those who can’t be bothered to reapply sunscreen, here’s a sun shirt from L.L.Bean that offers UPF 50+ protection.

This hooded sleeping bag from Wakeman features anti-snag zippers and a plush, yet breathable cotton liner.

For those among us not afraid of the button fly, these cropped cargo jeans from Levi’s offer a vintage-inspired, high-rise fit.

And here’s a travel-ready cosmetic pouch that won’t get lost in even the most cavernous tote bag.

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.
