26 Sale Buys That Are Officially Trend-Proof

Sponsor Content Created With Ralph Lauren

When shopping a sale, we like to focus on one thing: trend-proof pieces. To make the most of a discount, we look for pieces that will be the base of outfit formulas for years to come. And while plenty of retailers are kicking off their seasonal promos right now, there's one we keep coming back to for classic, capsule-forming pieces: Ralph Lauren.

Its summer sale has come just in time to spruce up our wardrobes for the warmer season ahead, with plenty of transitional pieces that will work all year long. These are pieces we actually want to buy regardless of their sale prices. (Though, admittedly, we certainly appreciate the 30% off.)

There are so many treasures to be found in the Ralph Lauren summer sale. 

There are certain summer staples that you can invest in now and wear year after year. Elevated sandals are a must for these warmer days, and a basket bag will be useful for every outing, be it a beach trip or an errand run. Better still, some pieces just need clever styling to make them appropriate for all four seasons. A great dress works just as well with sandals as it does with boots for colder months, and a crisp white shirt can go from boardroom tailoring to holiday cover-up with just a few sartorial tweaks. Fortunately for us, Ralph Lauren has plenty of pieces that aren't bound by trend or season, which makes them sound style investments.

Along with staple pieces, every great wardrobe needs a few stand-out items—a bold colour moment or an interesting design to mix with timeless treasures. And in true Ralph Lauren fashion, the brand has a mix of classic and timely pieces that will build solid foundations for all your outfits.

Whether you're updating your wardrobe basics or want a striking piece for upcoming events, read on for our curated edit of the best sale pieces from Ralph Lauren.
