Oh, sales. In some ways, they remind us of that moment when you walk up to the door at a party where you don't know anyone: so much potential, but a bit daunting. Which is why we've taken the liberty of doing the hard work for you—weeding through the leftovers to hunt down the cream of the crop: from that heathered pocket cardigan tailor-made for these summer-into-fall evenings to those speckled calf hair mini wedges we've had our eyes on all season. Take a peek at our favorites from today's featured store Madewell, and check back for more of our best-of-the-best sale picks in the coming days.
The Steal: BlankNYC x Madewell Skinny Jeans in Bow
Why We Love It: BlankNYC is a master at the art of the skinny jean—and the flirty, vaguely nautical print seals the deal.
The Damage: $69.99 (Previously $88)
The Steal: The Duet Mini-Wedge in Speckled Calf Hair
Why We Love It: This spot is not your average spot—it skews dalmation (rather than say, leopard or cheetah), which is very now. The polished tan heel adds a prep factor and ensures these will go with everything.
The Damage: $99.99 (Previously $138)
The Steal: Tailored Chambray Blazer
Why We Love It: See above—it's a blazer, and it's chambray. It's a chambrazer. We rest our case.
The Damage: $89.50 (Previously $138)
The Steal: Afternoon Dress in Textured Stripe
Why We Love It: Because it feels so French. And with a black cardigan, tights, and gray ankle boots, it sashays right into fall.
The Damage: $88.50 (Previously $110)
The Steal: See by Chloé Chunky Sweater
Why We Love It: It's color-blocking-gone-high-fashion with a low-key sensibility.
The Damage: $299.99 (Previously $395)
The Steal: Heathered Pocket Cardigan
Why We Love It: It's got that "sitting on your deck in the Sag Harbor" vibe.
The Damage: $54.99 (Previously $75)
