I consider Memorial Day to be the start of summer—never mind that the "official" season doesn't begin for another three weeks. While I certainly have plenty of non-shopping-related summer traditions to look forward to, I always keep an eye out for epic sales to jump-start my new-season wardrobe. This year, retailers have not disappointed.

My biggest pet peeve is when sales feature scant selections from past seasons in limited sizes. Who really wants the leftovers that never sold? But right now, a trio of my favorite retailers are discounting the *good* stuff: Shopbop (an extra 25% off with code EXTRA25), Saks (up to 50% off), and Bloomingdale's (up to 40 % off, 50% off swim). I've rounded up my favorite sale picks below, including a Jacquemus bag, a Staud skirt, an Ulla Johnson dress, and more.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
