The BEst Sales to Shop This Weekend

For me, the middle of March really feels like a shopping turning point — it’s finally time to start thinking about flipping my closet so that the spring clothes are in the front and the gross winter clothes are in the back and buy a few new things here and there to replace the things that definitely won’t fit after a winter of heavy eating.

But because I also want to go on a bunch of trips this year, my goal is to do this on the cheap. I’m a strong proponent of never paying retail when you don’t have to (and really, you never have to), so I’m heading straight to the sale sections. Here’s a list of the sales I’m personally psyched about, and I think you will be, too. Tiffany Yannetta, shopping director

The Outnet: The Outnet’s big spring clearance sale is still happening with a lot of great stuff at 85% off. There are six pages to click through and over 500 items, so really, I’m not sure why you’re still reading this and not already over there.

American Apparel: Everything at American Apparel is now 50% off, even the new spring stuff just added to the site. Now’s the time to stock up on old classics, or pick up something you maybe wouldn’t buy full-price. Shop women’s here, and men’s here.

Levi's: Take 30% off denim when you buy two or more pairs of jeans — now would be a great time to stock up. A suggestion: grabbing a few pairs of the Wedgie Fit and turning one of them into cut-offs. (And yes, that is the official name of these jeans.)

AYR: If you’ve got enough Levi’s, head to AYR’s final sale section, where four different styles of denim are marked down to $165 each.

Alternative: This one's only through midnight tonight, but it's worth it — take 40% off at Alternative, the brand behind some of the most comfortable sweatshirts on the planet. Use the code SAINT40 at checkout.

Intermix: Take 40% off all this stuff over at Intermix. On the docket: lots of bodysuits and off-the-shoulder tops (like, this striped one, and this black and white one) and some awesome leather jackets, like this one from Iro.

ASOS: Use the code PATS20 for 20% off at ASOS; it’s valid through 3 a.m. on Saturday. Use that as the justification you needed to stock up on summer swimwear, like this cute black one-piece and this sporty mix-and-match set.

Racked Deal of the Day

The UK-based brand Dorothy Perkins is offering Racked readers 25% off full-price items with the code RACKED25. There's a ton to sift through, so here are our top picks to get you started: these colorblock sandals for $34, this chic navy dress for $67, and this striped jumpsuit for $37.

The History of Green Dye Is a History of Death
One of the first green dresses ever made.

You may be planning to wear green this St. Patrick’s Day. Green, the color of kissing the Irish! The color of money! The color of… horrible, horrible death.

At least when it came to green dyes through the Victorian age.

In 1814, a company in Schweinfurt, Germany, called the Wilhelm Dye and White Lead Company developed a new green dye. It was brighter than most traditional green dyes. It was bolder. The shade was so jewel-like that it quickly began being called “emerald green.” And women loved it. Largely because it was during this time that gas lighting, rather than candlelight, was being introduced. When women went out to parties at night, the rooms were considerably brighter than they had been only a few decades before. These party-goers wanted to make sure they were wearing gowns that stood out boldly — gowns in a shade like emerald green. People also began using it for wallpaper and carpeting. Victorian Britain was said to be “bathed in… green.”

Unfortunately, the reason that dye was so striking is that it was made with arsenic.

The Bonobos Sweatpants My Fiancé and I Share

Bonobos Nomad 2.0 Sweatpants, $118

A few weeks ago, I made the mistake of going into Bonobos with some friends and touching the inside of the Nomad 2.0 Sweatpants. From a distance, these sweatpants are nothing groundbreaking — they have a “cool modern man” silhouette with a slim fit, are tapered at the ankle, and come in standard colors like navy, black, and gray. But the fabric — oh my god, the fabric.

The fleece lining of the pants is outrageously soft, to the point where I could not stop manhandling the merchandise. I wanted to rub my face on it and then commission sheets out of the same fleece cotton. It was truly delightful, but the $118 price tag was decidedly not.

Days later, my fiancé went to a Bonobos sample sale and made out like a bandit. Among his finds were The Sweatpants, in my preferred bright blue color and at a serious markdown. When I heard he only bought one pair, ostensibly for the two of us to “share,” I made him return with me to the sample sale later that afternoon. There were no longer any sweatpants available, and the scene at the sale was scarily reminiscent of that Broad City episode. We resigned ourselves to sharing one pair of sweatpants. It’s been hard.

The men’s size medium is a perfect fit for him and perfectly slouchy-cozy on me. They’re still so soft on the inside, even after multiple washes. The feeling of the fleece lining on my bare legs is about as comforting as a piece of clothing could possibly be, like I’m in a fuzzy embrace where nothing else matters.

If we come home from a night out together, we scramble to see who grabs the sweatpants first and the winner crows triumphantly at the sad, sweatpants-less loser.

Go forth and touch these sweatpants. You will not regret it. —Nina Bahadur, contributing writer

What We're Talking About

Tyler Ford's response to Hilary George-Parkin's Thinx piece reveals what it was like to work with the brand. Thinx hired them to model at its New York Fashion Week presentation and they say, "I wanted to use the space to discuss being a non-binary trans person who gets their period, & how having a period does not define my gender." In light of our report, they feel liberated to talk about what really happened... I'm bored by Gucci at this point, I get it, but I don't think I'd ever bore of looking at this Billy Ballard photograph of Charlie Hunnam wearing the brand's pink sweatshirt, nor reading Roxane Gay's "brutally handsome" words (about anything)... Another thing that brought me joy this week? Gabourey Sidibe's ebullient Nylon editorial. —Britt Aboutaleb, editor-in-chief
