Just as the heat and humidity are here to stay, so are the discounts on items you need to enjoy summertime. Of course, that could mean relaxing for hours poolside, swinging a racquet court-side, or hunkering down inside, but in any case, we’ve uncovered lots of deals to make the most of the season. There’s a pair of ’90s-inspired sneakers, a weekender with countless compartments, and even some celebrity-approved sunscreen.

It might be your last-chance to pick up these 2.5-inch Hudson shorts in this colorway. The extra-wide waistband provides nice core support even if you’re feeling a bit bloated.

Father’s Day is on Sunday, and this breezy polo would be a thoughtful gift for the father who frequents the country club.


And here’s the matching dress for mom, too.

This sleek-looking mirror has a storage area to display your collection of studs and other knickknacks.

Order soon, and these cheery cabana towels — which look somewhat similar to our favorite striped resort ones — will arrive before the weekend.

Lo & Sons The O.G. 2

Our best weekend bag for light packers, this nylon one has an abundance of compartments — one for shoes, another for a laptop, and an outer pocket for toiletries.

$265 at Lo and Sons
with code: BACKTOWORK2023

Starting today, Strategist readers can get early access to Tatcha’s sitewide sale with code NYMAG20. Brenda Song can’t live without this sunscreen, which works on her sensitive skin and is also the perfect lightweight base for makeup, she says.

This primer is favored by makeup artist Lucky Bromhead for blurring fine lines, filling large pores, and keeping foundation fresh for longer. Our beauty contributor Rio Viera-Newton can also attest to its ability to prolong makeup on extra hot days.

Urban Outfitters is taking 30 percent off summer styles — including these classic New Balance sneakers, which are surprisingly still in stock in most women’s sizes.

Or nab a pair of stain flats to contrast your knitted Rothy’s. There are two other neutral colors on-sale, if you don’t fancy this blush shade.

Any teen would appreciate a wallet like this Kate Spade one as a high-school-graduation gift they can bring along to college in a few months. It’s also an extra 40 percent off.

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.
