This Thursday, I’m bringing you a fashion-forward mix of deals. J.Crew and Urban Outfitters are both having sitewide sales, and Ban.do is offering up to 50 percent off spring break–ready apparel and and accessories until April 4. Plus, our favorite silk robe from Lunya is 20 percent off with a Strategist-exclusive code — but only until tomorrow night, so don’t dillydally. On the non-clothing side, you’ll find a mistable self-tanner, my favorite travel bag, and two expert-approved video doorbells.
Select full-price items at J.Crew are 40 percent off with the code SPRING through April 6. This sweaterlike (but still lightweight) tee is polished enough for the office and comes in nine colors.
We also spotted our best overall oxford shirt for men on sale. Three stylish men told us it’s their go-to, including photographer and rug dealer Mikael Kennedy, who even got married in his, saying that “they’re not disposable feeling, but they don’t feel precious, either.”
These J.Crew employee–approved pants aren’t part of the aforementioned sale, but they’re still 24 percent off. The four-season stretch fabric is made with an elastane blend that gives them a forgiving fit and relaxed feel without looking sloppy.
One of our favorite self-tanners is half off just for today at Amazon, Sephora, Ulta, and Target. The no-rinse mist is basically foolproof: Just spritz all over your face and neck, and a subtle glow will develop within four to eight hours. Plus, it can be applied under or over makeup.
Ring makes some of the best video doorbells, according to security and tech experts. This one is easy to set up, completely wireless — making it a great pick if your home doesn’t have a doorbell at all — and has a built-in battery that lasts up to six months.
And if you already have doorbell wiring but want to upgrade to video capabilities, Ring’s wired version is even cheaper. Unlike the wireless version, you’ll never have to recharge — and you can pair it with the Alexa-compatible Chime to always hear a visitor arrive.
Almost everything is 20 percent off at Urban Outfitters right now (the discount will show up in your shopping cart). These surfer-inspired swim trunks come in beige, black, blue, and ochre (pictured).
The sale includes products from the clearance bins, too, making our best-in-class affordable white socks just $8.
We’re big fans of Asics, whether you’re hitting the gym or the grocery store. Several pairs of squishy-soled sneakers are on sale at Urban Outfitters, but I think this one hits a kinda-ugly, kinda-stylish happy medium.
We’re truly living in the golden age of pimple patches. If you’d like something with a bit of flair to cover your flare-up, pick up these Rio-approved patches from Squish, which she says helped kick her skin-picking habit.
Lunya’s luxurious (and machine washable) silk loungewear has made our best-in-class lists for years, and our favorite silk bathrobe is 20 percent off until tomorrow night with our exclusive code, FOR-STRATROBE-20. Strategist writer Ambar Pardilla particularly appreciates the “elegant, scrunched-up cuffs on the sleeves, so I easily adjust their length while lounging around.”
Ban.do’s A Spring Break sale started today, and tons of travel-ready apparel and accessories are up to 50 percent off. I’ve been toting my Baggu Cloud bag — which is on sale in taupe — with me on every long weekend and holiday break since 2017. My mom recently borrowed mine and immediately requested one for a Mother’s Day gift after she returned it.
And here’s a cute way to hit your daily hydration goals.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
