The Best Sales to Shop Online This Weekend

Now that it’s February, it’s a safe bet that you’ve already acquired anything you need to survive the winter (coats, hats, gloves, scarves). But it’s definitely still winter in parts of the country, and not time for sundresses and sandals just yet.

This time of year, I usually nudge my window shopping toward clothes that can work in any season. And because you truly never have to pay full retail, this weekend’s sale sections are filled with exactly those kinds of “practical” impulse buys. Cory Baldwin, shopping editor

I’m always, always on the lookout for dresses that work well both layered in the winter and on their own in the summer. Need Supply’s fall/winter items are up to 80% off right now, so its site is a first stop. This Toit Volant dress ($159.99, from $228) is in my cart, as is this low-back slip dress  by Stelen. ($54.99, from $78). Loup is another brand with great dresses (and overalls, jackets, and pants) on sale right now; the discount is only 40%, but because the items are already affordably priced there are lots of things around $100.

I guess thanks to their city’s lovely weather, LA boutiques are masters at season-less selections. Head to TenOverSix for lots of great stuff by designers like Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Shaina Mote, Horses Atelier, and Jesse Kamm. The selection of fancy pants and cool blouses does an especially good job of scratching that fun-but-practical itch; I’m very into these silk Ganni pants ($162, from $325) and Opening Ceremony’s “disco rib” tee in lavender ($88, from $295).

Another LA favorite, Nonna, is running a 50% off sale this weekend that includes a bunch of cute jumpsuits that would be perfect with a bodysuit or T-shirt layered underneath. I’m eyeing this one by Town Clothes, as well as this spaghetti strap one by Linda Robinson, which are both now $185.

Lingerie is 100% seasonless, and cute bras and underwear always make me feel awesome even if no one else is ever going to see them. We recently wrote about New Zealand label Lonely for its detailed, edgy-but-romantic designs and inclusive imagery, and with most things half-off or more, the sale section is extremely tempting.

FYI, post-holiday and season change-over sales are winding down, so now is the time to scoop up anything you’ve been eyeing at big multi-brand sites like Net-a-Porter, Moda Operandi, and Farfetch, which are all running final clearance sales. At Net-a-Porter, anything marked “sale must-have” gets an additional 20% off taken at checkout. There’s a particularly great selection of shoes, from Martiniano block heel glove shoes ($218, from $545) to Etro jacquard-paneled leather brogues ($243, from $810).

For even more sales on top of sales, check out Lisa Says Gah, which is currently offering an extra 15% off sale items with the code SALE15, and The Dreslyn, which is offering an extra 20% off sale items with the code LASTCHANCE.

How Trump’s Proposed Border Tax Could Change Shopping Mexico-Made Brands
The designer Marika Vera at her Mexico City Fashion Week show in October.

Last week, the White House proposed a 20 percent import tax on Mexico-made goods as a possible way to pay for the southern border wall that Donald Trump has been promising since his presidential campaign. Though it remains to be seen whether such a tariff will actually go into effect, it would have an immediate effect on clothing brands like Forever 21, 7 For All Mankind, Paige Denim, Frye, Hudson Jeans, and Levi’s, which are among the companies that produce at least a portion of their goods in Mexico.

It would affect their shoppers, too. Levi’s, Hudson Jeans, Frye, Paige Denim, and 7 For All Mankind declined to comment on Trump’s proposed tax, but three designers of small fashion brands that produce in Mexico say that US customers would see an import tax of 20 percent reflected in their products’ price tags.

“Really, the consumer will be the one to suffer,” says Jack Miner, the founder of the Mexico City-based and -produced menswear line Hecho. “Our prices would go beyond our target price point.”

The Opaque Tights I Don’t Hate

Donna Karan Luxe Layer Leggings, $24

I am definitely not a tights person; in the winter, I’d rather wear jeans (or thigh high boots) until it’s warm enough to return to bare legs. But if the occasion calls for it, I will suck it up (literally) and put on a pair of black tights.

I usually swear by Uniqlo’s Heattech tights because they do really work, but this season I graduated to Donna Karan’s Luxe Layer Leggings ($24). They’re great, and luxe is not an understatement. Here, let the product description do the talking: “A supple stretch knit contours to the figure in these warm and cozy leggings lined with a soft brushed-fleece interior.” I was sold after supple stretch, but soft brushed-fleece interior, whatever that is, sealed the deal.

The brand is restocking the footed version, but I usually just wear the leggings with a pair of socks, and no one is the wiser that I’m not wearing real tights. (I also always wear socks over my tights anyway, because the foot of a tight is not an actual sock — it provides no warmth or cushion to the bottom of your feet.)

What’s also great about these is that they’re deeply opaque, which I prefer to tights that are more on the sheer side. They almost feel like actual pants, and if it were 2007, I could probably get away with wearing them like that. —Tiffany Yannetta, shopping director
