There's something about summer that puts me in a shopping mood. Well, it's also my favorite season, so that's definitely a factor too. But there are tons of summer sales this time of year, and you can score some amazing pieces to add to your warm-weather wardrobe at a fraction of the price you would've paid for them just a few weeks ago. Below, I've narrowed my search to three of my go-to retailers: Shopbop, Nordstrom, and J. Crew.

From staple Levi's and everyday basics to structural tops and crochet designs, this list includes a bevy of must-buy finds no matter your style or needs. There are also trendy mesh flats, white skirts, and statement sunglasses that are made for the hot temps ahead. Below, I've rounded up 45 items that will find a place in my closet (maybe a few will find their way into yours too). Going into a new season is a perfect time to refresh your outfits, so here's hoping you find some inspiration in these sales. You might be surprised at how steep some of the discounts are, so keep scrolling to snag them before items sell out.

Freelance Fashion Editor

Lauren Adhav is a freelance fashion editor based in Los Angeles. Originally from Orlando, Florida, she always wanted to work at a fashion magazine. After finally getting an internship at Town & Country in 2015, she moved to New York City and continued to get her footing in the industry with stints at Cosmopolitan, W magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and Moda Operandi. In 2017, she returned to Cosmo full time, starting off as the beauty and fashion editorial assistant and working her way to fashion editor. She contributed to both the website and print issues, pitching new ideas, forecasting trends, covering red carpet events, and informing the overall coverage and brand voice. After five years in NYC, she moved to the West Coast for the sunshine and the change of pace. As a freelance fashion editor, she still contributes to Cosmo and now Who What Wear. She's always trying to get ahead of the next big trend before it goes mainstream and loves discovering fashion brands with a unique point of view (Chopova Lowena, Sandy Liang, and Bode being some of her current favorites). She also spends an unhealthy amount of time online shopping for the perfect piece, and now that she's in L.A., she's rediscovering her soft spot for malls. On the weekends, you can find her walking around the Silver Lake Reservoir, trying to catch up on her tan at Venice Beach, and probably ordering a Chinese chicken salad at Joan's on Third.
