The Outnet's Labor Day Sale Is Full Of Hidden Gems
Not heading to some exotic beach for the holiday weekend? Here's a nice consolation: you'll be around to treat yourself to a little Labor Day sale shopping. Whether you're looking to kickstart your fall wardrobe refresh, or if you're very ambitious, to snag an on-sale swimsuit or pair of sunglasses for your winter getaways, I would recommend the first place you get to work be The Outnet. The online retailer's end of season sale starts Thursday, Aug. 30 and runs through Monday, Sept. 3 and includes 50 percent off of an impressive list of designers that range from Acne to Zimmermann.
Since sale shopping can be an overwhelming task to take on, even for the most seasoned shopper, I did the heavy lifting for you. Below, I'm highlighting 15 enticing designer finds that I would consider worth it at full price, but are even more enticing now that they are on major discount.
Consider these picks the hidden gems you may have overlooked when they first debuted, but are worth paying attention to right now (especially with their current markdowns). Now, the hard part will be resisting the temptation to buy them all (though hey, it's totally fine if you do).
A Party-Worthy Dress
Attico's trendy blazer dress was originally $1,885, so this is a discount not to be missed.
Mélange Jersey Culottes
Yes, even your loungewear should be luxe and these culottes (originally $690) most definitely are.
Statement Heels For Fall
These lace-up sandals (that were originally $895) will help you nail that awkward transition between summer and fall.
This Floral Skirt
This polished skirt is almost sold out, and is hugely marked down from its original price of $2,445.
Your New Favorite Sunglasses
Sunglasses can be expensive (these were originally $475) so when you find a pair you like on sale, it's always worth adding them to your cart.
Heels That Make You Happy
I see many a wedding in the future of these colorful sandals that are currently discounted from their original price of $695.
A Fresh Take On The LBD
A classic LBD is always in style, so consider investing in this cool look from Ellery (it was originally $2,000).
This Summery Knit
Not ready for summer to end? Then you need this Loewe top that first retailed for $750.
A Classic Work Dress
Belted Shirt Dress
This classic style is marked down from $550, and is great for office life.
Your Next Going-Out Top
A statement top might not be the first thing you think to buy, but since this one is discounted from $895, I say go for it.
A New Take On Denim
Shirred Mini Dress
This isn't your average denim dress, which is why I think it's a must-buy now that it's marked down from the original price of $445.
A New Statement Bag
Dot Com Bag
If you're looking to invest in a practical (yet statement-making) bag, this might just be the one. Especially since it's marked down from $2,800.
This Breezy Slip Dress
Topping my shopping list: this cool tie-dye dress that originally retailed for $800.
A Pretty Bustier
Picot-Trimmed Bustier Top
This seersucker bustier top was originally $995, so be sure to move fast on it.
