Friends and Family sale season is upon us (rejoice), so now is the perfect time to boost your fall wardrobe before the whirlwind that is the holiday season begins. I've been a Bloomingdale's shopper for years and have made some excellent purchases during the store's Friends and Family sales, stocking up on basics and even splurging on some investment pieces (the 25% discount is a great motivator). 

Since it's early October, I'm shopping for staples like denim, cashmere sweaters, boots, and outerwear. The sale is going on from now until October 14 (all items are marked, so no code needed) and shipping is free, so you have plenty of time to narrow down your list. But just in case you need a little assistance, I'm here. I dutifully scrolled through thousands of sales items in search of the 21 staples you'll regret not buying. Keep scrolling to start shopping.
