15 Sale Styles with Unbeatable Cost Per Wear

Some of our most versatile styles are majorly marked down. (Translation: You just hit the jackpot.)

By Emma Steinbergs

Word’s out: We’re having a sale, and it’s a big one. In fact, it’s our biggest of the year. From cozy cashmere and Power Casual essentials to formal suiting and best-selling dresses, there’s something for everyone—at discounts up to 80% off.

Feeling overwhelmed? We hear you. But sales are not the time to sit on the fence, so we compiled a few of our top picks to help you make some game-time decisions before things sell out. These 15 on-sale styles are both majorly marked down and highly versatile. The result? An unbeatably low cost per wear (the cost of an item, divided by the total number of times you’ll wear it)—and an even lower chance of buyer’s remorse.

A Luxurious Layer You'll Live In

1. The Arbus Sweater

$345 $175

Confession: I have four Arbus sweaters and am considering a fifth. This may seem excessive, but it’s easily my most-worn winter top—both at the office and on the weekend. Due to a relaxed fit and a slightly cropped length, its cut is simply sublime. Wear it with mid- or high-rise pants (no tucking necessary) if you want legs for days, or balance out its subtle boxiness with a hip-skimming dress.

A Blazer That Has Your Back

2. The Yiyan Blazer

$465 $280

Want to suit up and save big? Look no further. The Yiyan blazer is a quintessential suiting staple that features traditional tailoring and secret stretch, thanks to our signature knit panels in the back and arm seams that allow you to move with ease. Plus, the on-sale haze hue is a neutral that stands apart in a sea of suits.

A Traditional Yet On-Trend Trouser

3. The Horton Pant

$295 $175

Of course, you can’t have a suit without a matching trouser. Pair your Yiyan blazer with the long-legged Horton pant for the ultimate power suit.

A Dress for the Ages

4. The Emily Dress

$225 $45

As one of our original seven dresses, the Emily has been around for nearly ten years. In other words, it’s more than proved its timelessness. The secret sauce? An easy silhouette, square neckline, and machine-washable, eco-conscious fabric.

A Swanky, Swingy Sweater

5. The Sophie Sweater

$345 $205

The Sophie provides all the snuggles of a cashmere sweater and all the elegance of a flowy blouse. Thoughtful details include unique bell sleeves; a middle-friendly, swingy silhouette; and a deep V-neck that allows for creative styling. Dress it up with a layered necklaces, and on especially chill days, try layering it over the stretchy Axam turtleneck.

A Mood-Boosting Dress

6. The Lara Dress

$295 $175

When you’re feeling blah, wearing a jewel tone can serve as a small step toward a brighter day. Reach for the Lara dress in berry (or Carolina blue), a vibrant piece that features slightly whimsical design details like an asymmetrical hemline and diagonal seaming.

A Not-So-Basic Black Dress

7. The Regina Dress

$240 $145

Everyone needs at least one long-sleeved black dress in their closet; it’s pretty much always a safe bet. Whether you have an interview or a cocktail party on the calendar, you can count on a classic like the Regina dress. With a refined boat neck and flared sleeves, this sophisticated silhouette is timeless with just the right amount of twists.

A Must-Have Henley

8. The Mori Henley

$75 $45

Time to upgrade your essentials? Mix it up with a polished pima cotton underpinning like the Mori henley. With small, iridescent buttons and cap sleeves, this is not your average T-shirt.

A Second Skin

9. The Paige Tank

$65 $40

Once you give it a whirl, the Paige tank will have you hooked for life. Case in point: I own it in six colors. With a sleek fit and buttery soft pima cotton, it feels like a second skin—making it perfect for wearing solo in the summer or under your layers in the colder months.

A Slip Dress for Every Season

10. The Nene Slip Dress

$295 $150

Don’t let this lightweight, slinky silhouette fool you. The Nene is more than just a slip dress and is worth getting even if you never wear it on its own—seriously. Pair it with the matching Tatum top for a chic, washable silk set, or transform it into a sleek skirt by layering it under a cashmere sweater. Optional: Come summertime, rock it with some heeled sandals for date night.

A Turtleneck for Anytime

11. The Elizabeth Top

$345 $115

Diane Keaton will back us up on this one: Turtlenecks are for any and all seasons. They’re elongating and elegant, and their shape is dramatic in all the right ways—a look we aspire to 365 days a year. Ready to channel non-stuffy sophistication? Try a lightweight, extra-breathable version, like the silk jersey Elizabeth top.

Flat But Fancy Footwear

12. The Rowan Flat

$245 $170

If you’re one of the many women who said sayonara to heels over the past couple of years, you can sharpen your looks with a pointed flat like the Rowan. Take your styling to new heights with one of our on-sale hues like turmeric to give your neutral outfits a pop of color.

A Pattern to Play With

13. The Wren Top

$295 $175

The term “arpeggio” is no longer reserved for music nerds. Meet the Wren top in arpeggio print: a patterned top that brings mesmerizing visual texture to the table. Try pairing it with blues, creams, grays, or black for a cool-toned, geometric palette your pianist friends will appreciate.

A Layer to Lean On

14. The Sierra Shacket

$345 $175

You may have noticed the “shacket” (work shirt + jacket) has been especially in fashion over the past couple of years—and for good reason. The utilitarian aesthetic exudes an effortless cool factor that everyone can pull off, while elevated versions like the Sierra shacket are polished enough for the workplace.

A Cloud in Cashmere Form

15. The Lea Sweater

$525 $315

Last fall, back when I thought high-quality cashmere couldn’t get any softer, plush cashmere walked in the door. After noodling on the Lea sweater for a couple of months, I treated myself for Christmas and have never looked back. Lucky for you, this cloud in clothing form just went from splurge to steal in time for the holidays. P.S. Our CEO, Sarah LaFleur, is wearing this sweater at the office as I write this very sentence. If that’s not enough of an endorsement, I don’t know what is.
