If you’re already stocked up on summer styles, don’t sweat. We found lots of seasonally transitional deals in today’s sweep through the internet’s sale bins. There’s a lightweight shirt jacket that’s fit for layering, a top-rated backpack beloved by college students, and a nourishing hair mask for fighting post-storm frizz.

With another month or two (or three) of warm weather left, you won’t regret swapping out your duvet cover for this cooling linen-blend one — especially for 30 percent off.

Today only, Goodreads Choice award winners and nominees’ e-books are just $5 or less at Amazon. We recommend picking up Raven Leilani’s Luster, which Strategist writer Tembe Denton-Hurst “sped through” in just a few sittings.

Over at REI, you can take $130 off this breathable, layer-friendly rain jacket from the North Face. (It’s also made from recycled materials.)

Whether for your classes or commute, this top-rated North Face Jester Pack is “lightweight, and has excellent stretchy pockets on each side for my coffee mug and a water bottle,” according to one happy reviewer. (It’s also on sale in khaki and camo.)

If you need something a little smaller, here’s an excellent deal on a mini backpack from Eastpak, a.k.a. “the new Fjällräven.

For those of us with enough summer sandals, here’s a sizable deal on some genuine leather boots from ASOS. They’re still in stock in sizes 4 to 11, and reviewers say they run true to size.

Some Paris Hilton–esque sunglasses to meet the Y2K fashion moment.

Dermstore’s Anniversary Sale is still going strong, with discounts of up to 25 percent on lots of things we’ve written about before. If you’ve yet to shop the sale, we recommend starting with this moisturizing hair mask from Black-owned brand Briogeo, which Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton says left her hair “smoother and less tangled” after just four days of use.

Madewell is taking 30 percent off select styles with code GOFORIT, including this fall-ready shirt jacket that’s still in stock in sizes XXS to XL.

And this terry cloth bucket hat that’ll dry much faster (and feel much softer) than a regular cotton cap.

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.
