Aside from the fact that it’s the 4th of July today (happy Independence Day, BTW!), it’s also officially summer, which, however ironically means that e-tailers and fashion labels are already trying to clear our their warm-weather inventory to make room for fall styles to fill the racks and offer you some noteworthy deals to help jump-start your Fourth of July sale shopping plans (TBH, it’s totally fine if you plan on ditching the mass crowds at the beach to attend BBQ’s and watch fireworks for some much-needed R&R and online shopping instead). After all, fashion works two seasons ahead.
While it may be puzzling for all of us non-fashion-buyers, it’s actually good news for us fashion lovers who also just so happen to live for a bargain, (*raises hand*) because summer sales and clearances actually start right when the season officially begins. This means you can score some major deals on seasonal-ready essentials like stylish wedding guest dresses, current swimwear styles, and hopelessly cute sandal styles galore — all without having to pay full price. Plus, you’ll get to wear your new on-sale scores ASAP since yeah, it’s already uncomfortably warm out, so it’s kind of a win-win. With that being said, I’ve been covering holiday and seasonal sales for years, and this year’s offerings left me pretty impressed.
I mean, in the marketing world, July is apparently now being referred to as “Christmas in July” (industry jargon, but you know) rather than a month known for commemorating the Declaration of Independence. Either way, July is a good time to shop and save — it’s pretty much summer’s version of Black Friday. So, I’ve compiled some swoon-worthy bargains with steep discounts that I think are totally worth your attention and the loss of (albeit, modest) funds. We’ve also rounded up all of the sales we spotted worth shopping over your long weekend (because hopefully you also have Friday off) in another post, so make sure to check that out too.
