Tis’ the season for friends and family sales, everyone. Next up: Saks Fifth Avenue. Through April 27, the department store is offering 30 percent off much of the store (a 5 percent hike from last year!) as well as 20 percent off jewelry and triple points for card owners on anything that’s not included in the discounts.

To shop the sale online, use promo code FRNFAM at checkout. You can also peruse discount-eligible items (like these never-on-sale Loeffler Randall sandals) online. If you’ve been scoping out a splurge-worthy item, now’s the time to pull the trigger.  Read more »

The Perfect White Tee You Need to Buy This Spring

Fans of America’s Next Top Model will fondly remember the perennial “go-see” episode. Contestants were challenged to go to — and book — as many go-sees at design houses as possible. Inevitably, one model tries to squeeze in one last visit and returns late (a huge no-no), or someone gets hopelessly lost 15 minutes out of the gate. It’s television crack.

The reason I bring up ANTM (besides being a hopeless fan) is because I found my absolute favorite, can’t-live-without-it summer t-shirt and it’s Toggery Brand‘s Go-See Tee (bam!). Silky-soft and pristinely white, it’s comfy but still has a modern fit. Plus, since it’s made from 93 percent jersey modal and 7 percent spandex, it won’t get stretched or lose its shape. It’s a bit of an investment, but it’ll put your Hanes v-necks to shame.  Read more »

Where there is Lilly, there is shopping chaos. (Seriously, the brand’s fans are die-hard.) And anyone who has been following the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collaboration news knows there has been no shortage of drama surrounding the announcement (think angry sorority girls and rightfully pissed plus-size ladies). While most of the commotion has dissipated, there’s still tons of excitement surrounding the massive 250-piece release. The collection is set to debut this Sunday and — just like with Lilly’s infamous warehouse sales — there is strategy involved to score the best stuff.

Here, our best tips and tricks for maneuvering the in-store and online debut:  Read more »

This is the Coolest Raincoat We’ve Ever Seen

RainCoat

Raincoats get a bad rap. They’re either too bulky, too shiny or too casual (ever try finding one that looks good over a fashion-forward outfit?). Finally, we’ve found one we love — an effortlessly cool military-style raincoat. We stumbled upon it on Refinery29 this morning (while we were drying off from this morning’s muggy rainfall).

It’s the product of a sweet collab between luxe rainwear brand (yes, these do exist) Terra New York and jewelry brand Joomi Lim. The result: a transparent utility jacket (it also comes in black) with edgy embellishments like plated gold shoulder plates and collar tabs. Think of it as the alternative to the trench coat.  Read more »

Jeans are garments most susceptible to trends. Last year, it was all about high-waisted, cropped skinnies; this year, we can’t get enough of 70s-inspired super-flares. Even worse is the ever-shifting wash debate (raw or waxed? Destroyed or worn-in?). To ensure you’re getting the most out of your denim collection, we suggest this insanely cool e-service, Denim Refinery. The service will transform your little-worn denim into a closet workhorse.

There’s no denying it: TV fashion is freakin’ good right now. Claire Underwood looks first-lady-worthy in smoky blue Ralph Lauren gowns and Olivia Pope dons glorious capes and perfectly tailored suits. Hell, even the teens on Pretty Little Liars are rocking envy-inducing outfits. But, as everyone knows, costume wardrobes are culled far in advance and, with the exception of the Scandal‘s The Limited collab, it can be tricky to nab these looks once they’re splashed across the screen.

Enter: Spylight, a Shazam-esque app for zeroing in on your favorite looks from popular TV shows and films. Yep, that means Alicia Florrick’s cashmere shawl from last Sunday’s episode of The Good Wife can be yours in just a few clicks. Read more »
