(Image credit: @spiritedpursuit)

Get ready for an influx of e-mails and phone notifications. Retailers are pulling out all the stops in preparation for Memorial Day, with sales dropping left and right. It's a weekend the market editor in me eagerly awaits all year—it's when I revisit all of the items I've bookmarked and saved over the months. When I check back, each item usually costs way less than before. As editors, we typically get a first peek at all of the Memorial Day sales popping off before they happen, and based on our observations, you're in for a treat this weekend. Names like ASOS, Nordstrom, Mango, and Revolve are getting in on the action, offering heavy markdowns and special prices on hundreds of items.

If you have yet to map out your summer wardrobe or just want a few pieces to liven up your existing closet, now's the time to take full advantage and save a little coin. Personally, I devised a plan to first fill out my collection of summer sundresses (I'm looking at you, Mango) and then hit up Nordstrom and Ssense in search of a new investment handbag.

As you can imagine, there are a plethora of sales kicking off, so in the interest of time, I've edited them down to the ones worthy of your immediate attention. Below, check out the best sales to shop this weekend as well as all the sale finds we're immediately adding to cart. Happy shopping!

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
