This Weekend’s Best Online Sales

It’s Friday again, which means you made it through the week — now, time to reward yourself. So that you can do so without going broke, we’ve pulled together some of the best sales this weekend has to offer. Whether you’re looking to spend a little or a lot while shopping for beauty or clothes (or a bit of both), you’ve got plenty of options. Big highlights include seemingly endless selections from brands like Madewell and Lou & Grey, both of which are offering an extra percentage off already marked-down inventory.

Plus, cult-favorite beauty brand Stila is offering 40% off select items in honor of breast cancer awareness, with all proceeds going to a foundation that provides free support services to women living with cancer. Check those out and more below. —Tanisha Pina, market editor

Madewell: Now through Monday, Madewell is offering an extra 30% off all sale styles in stores and online. The brand’s sale section never disappoints — usually because it’s almost always eight pages deep and full of stuff in the season we’re currently in — so this is a pretty sweet deal. Highlights include these really great wide-leg khaki pants, now $35 (were $68), this floral mockneck dress, now $70 (was $158), this cozy coral-colored pullover sweater, now $49 (was $98), and this pair of wear-everywhere black leather boots, now $150 (were $228).

Ouai: The brand fronted by Jen Atkin — aka hairstylist to some of your favorite celebrities, probably — is running a friends and family sale through Sunday, offering 20% off the entire site when you use code SAYNOMORE. Need suggestions? Try the Wave Spray ($22, down from $26) for tousled, textured waves minus the whole crunchy hair thing, or the OG dry shampoo (now $20.90, down from $24). If you’re already a fan (or need a gift for someone who is), this is a good time to pick up one of the brand’s very aesthetically pleasing kits.

Gap: While the brand is only offering an extra 40% off your entire purchase until midnight tonight using code MORE, the big fall sale — touting up to 75% off on hundreds and hundreds of items in all categories — will run through the weekend. If you can get in early for that extra percentage off, though, we guarantee you can tackle most of your family’s fall wardrobe in one go. There are tons of great work tops that don’t feel stuffy, plus cozy sweaters and outerwear for everyone — no matter how cold (or... still hot) it is where you live.

Stila: In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the beauty line is offering 40% off select items when you use code BCA; all proceeds go toward The Foundation For Living Beauty, which provides free support services to women living with cancer. The limited selection includes some of Stila’s most popular products, like the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick — now $13.20 instead of $22 — and the Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow, which is now $19.20 instead of $32.

Lou & Grey: The retailer is offering an extra 30% off sale styles through the weekend, which is extra good news considering the sale section is actually pretty stocked right now. There are (surprise!) lots of great sweaters and easy tops you can wear everywhere — during both the workweek and through the weekend — now under $40. Oh, and these heavenly live-in-all-fall sweatpants are important, too, because they’re now $45 (down from $65).

The Dreslyn: If you missed Need Supply’s big sale last week, don’t worry your little indie head. The Dreslyn is offering 25% off this weekend — 5% more than NS! — for its friends and family event when you use code FAMILY. No doubt things will still be a little pricey, but it’s a great opportunity to splurge on popular names that rarely go on sale — especially when it comes to coats and shoes. This Zadig & Voltaire faux-fur peacoat is marked down to $298.50 (from $398.50), and these dreamy salmon sparkle boots from Maryam Nassir Zadeh are $425 (down from $581).

H&M Denies Burning Good, Unsold Product

On its face, fast fashion is a wasteful business. If you’re shopping at Zara and Topshop, you probably understand that these stores have succeeded by churning out vast amounts of fresh product each week and encouraging us to buy and dispose of them at the same rate. But a new report on the excesses of fast fashion by a Danish television channel has been getting particular attention for claiming that H&M has burned 60 tons of new, unsold apparel since 2013.

In a statement denying that it destroys usable clothing, H&M said that the clothing featured in TV2’s Operation X program was incinerated because it had been damaged by mold or contained unsafe levels of lead. Operation X had carried out its own lab tests to see whether this was true and found safe levels of chemicals in the garments, implying that H&M was burning good product. With its press release, however, H&M included its own lab results that said otherwise.

Whether or not this is true, clothing brands have made a practice of destroying unsold product in the past — including H&M, which has made a concerted effort to brand itself as an environmentally responsible company in recent years. In 2010, the New York Times found bags of H&M and Walmart clothing that had been slashed through, possibly to prevent them from being resold or returned for cash. We’ve heard reports of luxury brands shredding unsold product, too. If this sounds familiar to you, drop a line. —Eliza Brooke, senior reporter

Halloween Costumes to Buy From 5 Regular Stores

There are two types of people in this world: those who care enough about Halloween to really think through a good costume, and those who don’t. For the latter, that usually means heading to Party City or Spirit Halloween a week before and digging through whatever scraps are left. And really, nothing sucks more than spending $50 on something lame that came out of a plastic bag, is highly flammable, and is allegedly one-size-fits-all.

The alternative, which only requires you to be mildly creative, is to just head to the stores you already shop to pick up a few things that you can cobble into a costume and — who knows! — maybe even wear again. (Or, at the very least, buy alongside some stuff you actually want to meet that free-shipping minimum.)

Here’s a list of those stores, a few recommendations on what to buy from each, and a few more free costume ideas from Racked’s Alanna OkunTiffany Yannetta, shopping director

ASOS: There is, of course, a dedicated Halloween section at ASOS, which includes a lot of black dresses and jumpsuits, fishnetsheadbands with animal ears, and masquerade masks, plus some cheeky tees for the truly lazy. ASOS is your best move if you’re not really trying to dress up but still want to be a good sport by wearing a bat barrette. You can also pick up an all-black under-layer for whatever your costume actually is, or just wear that and go as a “hot goth.”

American Apparel: It may be under new ownership, but American Apparel is still one of the easiest places to buy things that you can sort of turn into a Halloween costume. Catsuits — in leopard printsmetallics, and solids — are still in heavy rotation, as are an infinite number of leggings. If you need some direction, crib a few ideas from the costume contest page.

Forever 21: Since a Halloween costume is something you’re only going to wear one or two times, max, Forever 21 is a no-brainer for buying the kind of crap you’ll want on October 31st but absolutely want to discard by November 1st. There is quite the selection of patent leather, including a few iterations of this mini skirt. Not your speed? Head to the shoe section, where you’ll find stuff like iridescent over-the-knee bootsfurry boudoir heels, and rhinestone loafer slides.

Modcloth: For vintage clothes that don’t scream “costume” but could also work for a Halloween costume, click on over to Modcloth. The quirky dresses” category has a bunch of stuff that could work as a great base to any retro-leaning costume (just dig past the cat-print dresses, of which there are many).

Costume ideaSexy Rainforest Café

Hot Topic: You don’t need to be in middle school or still listen to Green Day to shop at Hot Topic — it is possible to walk in as a grown-ass adult and walk out with something beyond Manic Panic hair dye, promise! Accessories are a smart place to start: There are Harry Potter tiesfangsSuicide Squad chokers, and, of course, a lot of Nightmare Before Christmas merch. All jokes aside, Hot Topic makes it incredibly easy to “shop by license,” if there’s a particular movie or TV show you’re hoping to emulate.
