Remember when it seemed like can’t-miss sales rolled around twice a year, max? Times have changed, and with designers releasing more throughout the year (hello, Resort and Pre-Fall!), that means more amazing steals to tide us over. This season, use the latest markdowns as an opportunity to invest in a longstanding staple. Without further fuss, here are the best sale picks, my top bag from each major shopping destination:
NET-A-PORTER: Charlotte Olympia Amphitrite Paillette-Embellished Clutch
We are currently giving away Jérôme Dreyfuss’ gold rivet-adorned tote, but if you don’t win, no sweat. Just grab the cute clutch version by Charlotte Olympia instead, and at a great price, ideal for a sultry summer evening. For $447, from $895.
Neiman Marcus: Chloé Vanessa Double-Flap Shoulder Bag
Basics rarely get much better than this. Soft leather rests comfortably at your side, no-brainer zip compartments keep even the most chaotic lives organized, and it comes in the perfect combination of neutral tones for the season. For $1,135, from $1,695.
Barneys New York: Saint Laurent Suede Classic Duffel 12
Do you even really need to take a moment to consider this one? Saint Laurent’s classic duffel in a harmonious blend of neutral gray suede and leather speaks for itself. For $1,589, from $2,650.
Nordstrom: Fendi Ombré 2Jours Leather Shopper
One of Fendi’s best bags ever is now on sale. This is the kind of statement-making staple that will motivate you to happily neutralize your wardrobe to accommodate a color-centric tote. For $1,995, from $2,850.
