Summer sale

Most of us are admiring all of the new collections coming out and dreaming about how we can update our wardrobes. It may still be shorts and sandal season, but our minds are filled with chunky sweaters, new jeans and boots. You may ignore the summer sales because you already have your fill of jorts, sandals and tank tops, but you shouldn’t bypass them completely. While the sales are filled with lots of things that are strictly meant for summer, there are some great pieces that will work for both summer and fall. Resist the temptation to hit the new arrivals rack, and check out the sale section to find things that work for the new season at a fraction of the price. To get you started, we’ve rounded up some of our top sale picks that will give you the most wardrobe versatility in the coming months. You’re welcome.

Take a look at 13 pieces from the sales that will work now and into fall:

1. Denim Wrap Front Pinafore Dress ($31, ASOS)

Asos Denim Wrap Pinafore Dress

This dress is as versatile as a pair of jeans. You can make it work for almost any temperature. The trick is to adjust your layers accordingly. Start off with a lightweight top now then add tights and a cardigan later.

2. Project Social T Plunge Lace-Up Top ($19, Urban Outfitters)

Urban Outfitters Top

Lace-up tops are still trendy for fall. This one is lightweight enough to work now, but it will still work when the temperature dips. The maroon color is also fab for autumn.

3. Simple Striped Shirt ($20, Topshop)

Topshop Simple Striped Shirt

This is the type of shirt that you will live in. Wear it to the beach as a preppy chic cover-up. Pair it with a pencil skirt and you can wear it to work. Then dress it down on the weekends with jeans and a hobo bag.

4. Bishop + Young Suede Skirt ($62, Revolve)

Revolve Suede Skirt

If you saw this skirt in the store, you would probably think that it is new fall merch thanks to the rustic color. The good news for you is that it is on sale. The shorter hemline works now with bare legs. Add some tights when the weather gets cooler.

5. Jumpsuit With Lacing ($14.99, H&M)
H&M Jumpsuit

There’s no need to pack this cropped jumpsuit away when September hits. The plain black fabric is a lot easier to wear as opposed to some Hawaiian prints. Style it with the turtlenecks, tights and boots you already have in your closet.

6. One With Flowers Embroidered Denim Jacket ($52.80, Nasty Gal)

Nasty Gal 1

You can wear the right floral print well into the fall. This jacket features blue floral appliques on the back. The different moody shades and the design make the look appropriate for almost any season.

13. Geometric Pattern Cigarette Pants ($24, River Island)
