Fall is fast approaching, and the internet’s late-summer sales bins are stocked accordingly. In today’s sweep, we found a pair of breathable track pants to help you manage the seasonal transition, a wind-resistant anorak to keep you warm and dry, and a hugely discounted linen duvet cover for weathering the final heat waves ahead.

Protect your legs from late-August mosquito bites with these breezy linen pants, which are still in stock in most sizes (and petites).

Lots of Casper bedding is up to 30 percent off over at Nordstrom, including this organic-cotton throw blanket that can move with you from bedroom to couch.

For a limited time, ASOS is taking 25 percent off orders of $30 or more with code WOW25. That would include the unisex Reebok sneakers one designer calls “the sneaker of the year.” They’re cushioned and comfortable, and have a “European, understated feel.”

Macy’s also just added lots of new styles to its clearance section, including this breathable, wind- and rain-resistant anorak from The North Face.

It’s not every day we find a welled bamboo cutting board for under $25.

These mid-weight shorts from Champion are a little like the cozier cotton cousin of Patagonia’s Baggies.

We’d be remiss not to tell you about a Serena & Lily sale, especially when that sale includes all things linen. This deeply discounted duvet cover has inner ties and fabric-covered buttons for a secure fit, and it will only get softer with each wash.

We also spotted some Turkish cotton bath towels on sale, which are available in both white and the gray shown. They’re Oeko-Tex certified and free from harsh chemicals.

In case you missed it, there are just two days left to shop Dermstore’s (very good) Anniversary Sale. We recommend picking up a can of this dry shampoo from Living Proof, one of our favorite products for combating oily hair. Experts tell us it gives whole-head volume that’s “beach-wavy rather than just frizzy.” (The rest of our Strategist-approved beauty picks can be found here.)

You can’t go wrong with the legendary French moisturizer beloved by Jane Birkin, Strategist writers, and countless makeup artists — especially when it’s on sale.

And finally, here’s a truly excellent deal on some gel pens from Strategist-tested Paper Mate.

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.
