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

Lauren Dress



Attico's trendy blazer dress was originally $1,885, so this is a discount not to be missed.

Cozy Sweats

Mélange Jersey Culottes


Adam Lippes

Yes, even your loungewear should be luxe and these culottes (originally $690) most definitely are.

Statement Heels For Fall

Whipstitch-Effect Heels



These lace-up sandals (that were originally $895) will help you nail that awkward transition between summer and fall.

This Floral Skirt

Simone Rocha

This polished skirt is almost sold out, and is hugely marked down from its original price of $2,445.

I see many a wedding in the future of these colorful sandals that are currently discounted from their original price of $695.

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.

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.
