WEAR THIS NOW: How To Take Advantage Of Today's Sales

Because Columbus Day is done and retailers are about to switch their focus to Black Friday mania, now is the prime time for snagging some serious deals on end-of-summer fashion that didn’t sell out before fall clothes hit stores (like peep-toe booties and perfect-for-layering dresses). You may think you’re a seasoned online sale shopper, but we have a few tried-and-true tricks up our sleeves, straight from our new book, Wear This Now! Here are a few tips for navigating the sale rack in between seasons:

1. Get on the list: If you’re obsessed with this season’s “It” bag or shoe — say, the Isabel Marant sneaker wedges, sign up on sites like eBay or ShopStyle to be notified when it’s marked down.

2. Shop sale sections from the bottom up: Once you’re at the sale section, hit “view all” and shop from the bottom up to the top of the page. The items at the bottom haven’t been “picked through” as much, so they’re more likely to have your size.

3. Watch out for shipping: Sometimes the deal loses its allure if shipping costs as much as the product, so make sure you know how much it’ll cost to buy (and return, if needed) the product. You can save on shipping charges by using an unlimited free shipping service like ShopRunner.com, where you pay a flat fee for unlimited free two-day shipping on more than a million products.

If you’re in a shopping mood now (aren’t we always?), head over to J.Crew for an extra 25% off sale items with the code SHOPJCREW, snag an extra 20% off sale items through Thursday at StyleMint with code COLUMWKND at checkout, save 15% off a pair of shoes at Macy’s, or check out our list of today’s online sample sales!
