Yesterday, we forgot to mention that Reformation’s Summer Sale kicked off, so to make it up to you, we found some nice-looking basics that you can wear all year round. It’s also your last day to shop Dermstore’s actually good Anniversary Sale, so don’t dillydally: You can find all our top picks from the sale here, but I’ve also included a few things that your fellow Strategist readers have been stocking up on. And if you’re getting into the back-to-school mood, there’s some deals worth checking out at Amazon and Target.

If you, or your child, cares about the color, I found more colors of the Takeya on sale at Target — including blue, yellow, pink, and orange — for $24, and the navy bottle is just $14. (Yes, it’s not as good as Amazon, but it’s still 20 percent off.)

Sony’s over-ear, noise-cancelling headphones are less than $100 right now. They have a battery life of 35 hours, but if you’re in a pinch, a three-minute charge is enough to provide up to 60 minutes of power.

A selection of very sweet kids’ backpacks are 20 percent off at Target — and all of them include a fidgety keychain to soothe first-day jitters.

For older kids — or adults who want a TSA-friendly bag that fits their laptop — this SwissGear backpack has plenty of pockets and padded shoulders.

Reformation’s Summer Sale is live — and despite the name, there are lots of fall-friendly pieces on sale, like these not-too-slouchy pants that’d be ideal for the office.

Here’s a slinky dress that’s very business in the front, but with an open back.

Chunky clogs that were made for tromping.

Dermstore’s Anniversary Sale finally, actually ends tonight, and one of the most popular products with Strategist readers has been this cult-y French pharmacy moisturizer.

If you have colored, bleached, or relaxed hair, the Olaplex No. 4 shampoo adds shine and reduces frizz with each wash.

Sunday Riley’s vitamin-C serum is also 20 percent off, which is about as deep as a Sunday Riley discount gets.

All swimsuits and cover-ups are 30 percent off at Summersalt with the code SPF30. The Sidestroke one-piece is one of our best plus-size swimsuits and has a range of cute, colorful, and functional silhouettes that “fit like a glove,” according to one stylist we spoke to.

Select styles are up to 60 percent off with the same code, including this cinched tankini that could almost pass for a going-out top.

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.
