Labor Day sales will be here before you know it, but until then, we found some deals to hold you over. Combing through the internet’s sales bins, we found lots of clothes and accessories for heading back to school, back to the office, and even a few things to spice up a dorm room.

Even after its anniversary sale, we’re still finding great deals at Nordstrom, like these colorful Nike Blazers for 20 percent off. If neutrals are more your thing, they are also on sale in a classic black-and-white colorway.

For half off, we spotted this baseball cap that pays homage to the New York Black Yankees of the Negro League.

Shopbop is having a heat-wave sale, taking an extra 25 percent off select sale styles with code HEAT25, bringing many items close to 50 percent off. These color-blocked socks will hopefully bring some cheer to the dog days of summer.

Here, we have a sweater for over 60 percent off that will keep you warm in the icy, air-conditioned office you’re likely headed back to this fall.

We also found some rarely on-sale Bala Bangles that will add that extra oomph to any workout. Personally, I wear them on my wrists during hot-girl walks.

From $79

Bedding is currently 25 percent off at Urban Outfitters. For some simple tonal bedding, here’s this washed cotton duvet cover, also on sale in mustard, crisp white, rusty brick, teal, and sand.

We think these fun mushroom sheets would brighten up any drab dorm room.

Still available in almost every size, these Teva Hurricane sandals are 20 percent off. They top our list of the best water shoes and have been recommended for everything from crossing a river to jumping in a lake to a rainy day. Thanks to the adjustable velcro straps, you don’t have to worry about them slipping off your feet, and the quick-drying material ensures that your feet won’t be sopping wet all day long.

We’ve been writing about Japanese ceramics brand Hasami since 2018, admiring the matte porcelain finish and raw edge that breaks up the color, so we were delighted to find the brand’s dripper, for brewing coffee or tea, on sale for 50 percent off at Huckberry. Just note, this item is on final sale.
