Why is it a Sale Find? Diane von Furstenberg’s tweed jacket is a stunner. We’ve had our eye on this one for a while, and at 40% off, it’s time to jump on it. The navy trim grounds the tweed fabric for true versatility. Using black and white - along with shades of blue, green, and pink – this is a finishing touch that will take you from desk to dinner with ease.
Wear it with: The slightly shorter length hits at the high hip, so it’s beautiful with a skirt, as well as slim or wide leg trousers. Black, white, navy, and beige all look great. And if you want a more casual vibe, it’s beautiful with white or dark jeans and a simple tank top.
Fit Tip: DVF’s fit is contemporary. In sizes 2-14, go with your normal size for a trim and sleek look that seriously flatters. And it has hook-and-eye closures, so you can wear it open or closed. Just closing the one hook at the waist further accentuates the waist detail and creates a pretty hourglass shape.
Alternatives: This Armani blazer – at 60% off! – is amazing. There are only a few left, but if you prefer a longer length, the waist detail is incredible.

Joie - Finnegan Paisley Print Sleeveless Silk Blouse
Why is it a Sale Find? The white print on this sheer black blouse from Joie gives it a graphic look that is just right for the season. The coordinating smaller pattern along the shoulder just adds to the high quality look we expect from this beloved brand.
Wear it with: Add a black cami underneath, since the 100% silk fabric is lightweight and elegantly sheer. Don’t let that deter you from wearing it to the office, though. Once you layer that cami underneath, it is sophisticated with black or white pants of every shape or a pencil skirt. It’s also a beautiful layer under a classic black or white suit.
Fit Tip: Joie’s modern fit is lovely on most everyone. Made in sizes XS-L, this blouse has a relaxed shape that can be worn tucked or untucked.
Alternatives: Joie’s blue and white striped silk blouse has a long sleeve that you can roll up to ¾ sleeve, ideal for Summer and also at a great price.

Joe's Jeans - Spotless - Wasteland High Rise Flare Jeans
Why is it a Sale Find? White jeans can feel precious – fear of dirty fingers, spills, or an unexpected rain showers can make you think twice about wearing them. Joe’s eliminates those fears with their “spotless” fabric that actually repels spills. Yes, you can and should re-read that sentence. How they do it, while keeping the fabric utterly soft and stretchy, we’re not entirely sure. But we can tell you we’ve tested it ourselves – spills literally bead right up. So wear these jeans with confidence.
Wear it with: White jeans go with everything. You can wear them casually with a tee or boho top. And, especially in this style, they create a wonderfully polished look with a button down and blazer for a casual office look – a great warm weather replacement to dark jeans.
Fit Tip: The higher waist and flared leg is not only stylish, it’s the perfect silhouette for white jeans. The waistband hits just at the waist, creating a longer line that is perfect for the already elongating effect of the flare, and helps avoid any muffin top or love handles. In Joe’s contemporary fit, they are not too skinny and have just the right amount of stretch for comfort without the cling you want to avoid, especially in white jeans. Petite ladies, you won’t lose the flared look if you need to shorten them.
Alternatives: Nordstrom also has a timeless pair of skinny jeans on sale, also from Joe’s, in a great denim that’s actually made for the warmer weather.

Why is it a Sale Find? The knit fabric of this Matty M top is the ideal mix of lightweight sweater and supersoft tee, making it super comfortable and a little more polished than a simple tank top. The a-line shape keeps it comfortable, and with a hem that is longer in the back, it’s an easy piece you’ll reach for all season.
Wear it with: It comes in a few pretty colors through the ‘shop it’ button that all work for year round wear. For now, it’s great on its own with any jeans, or slim pants. The rich red color we’re showing here is especially lovely with white or beige. And this top will be a great layer under open, easy cardigans come Fall.
Fit Tip: In sizes XS-XL, this top has an easy, relaxed shape that runs true to size.
Alternatives: Diane von Furstenberg has her own version of a Summer sweater with a beautiful short sleeve and a similarly relaxed silhouette through the body.
http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/tambrel-d-top/4396021 Joie - Tambrel D Cotton & Cashmere Asymmetrical Sweater
Joie - Tambrel D Cotton & Cashmere Asymmetrical Sweater
Why is it a Sale Find? Joie comes through again, with another great silhouette. This lightweight sweater has a relaxed shape, but with an asymmetrical hem that dips down in the front and back to stylishly conceal. The fabric is mostly cotton to ensure you won’t get overheated, but it has a touch of cashmere for a super soft touch and luxe quality the brand is known for.
Wear it with: The white and blue color mix is chic with white pants or slim jeans. It reads quite neutral, so feel free to have some fun and pair it with color pants, too. If you’re not especially tall, you can even throw it on over a pair of leggings.
Fit Tip: Joie’s modern fit works on most every lady, which is one of the many reasons we love the brand. In sizes XS-L, you can go with your normal size for an easy fit.

Why is it a Sale Find? Ignore the jumpsuit shown under the cardigan in this image, and focus on the amazing chunky 100% cotton cardigan from Free People. It’s one of the pieces you’ll wonder how you lived without, whether you throw it on for an evening stroll along the beach or wear it over a casual sundress on a cooler day. It has a weighty feel that doesn’t feel too warm thanks to its open stitchwork.
Wear it with: The longer silhouette, slouchy styling and perfect shade of navy makes for the ideal layer. Wear it with shorts, jeans, a mini or knee length dress or skirt…it works with every color and pattern.
Fit Tip: It’s open styling and easy fit is effortless for every lady, so go with your normal size. In sizes XS-L, if you are between sizes, you can size down.

Why is it a Sale Find? Diane von Furstenberg is known for her amazing prints. And this top certainly delivers the message. And unlike her wrap dresses, the shape of this blouse is truly relaxed, yet still delivers on high femininity.
Wear it with: Here, we’re showing this blouse with the neckline open, creating balance to the stylish volume of the body. Once you click through the ‘shop it’ button, you can see that it also looks good with the neckline tied. Whichever you choose, the vibrant colors look so pretty against white, navy or dark denim. And the voluminous sleeves are finished with an elasticized hem – as is the body of the top – so they won’t overwhelm. This top looks best with a tailored or slim bottom, whether you choose jeans, pants, or a slim skirt.
Fit Tip: Unlike some DVF pieces, this has an easy shape that is loose and relaxed in your normal size.
Alternatives: NYDJ has some pretty printed blouses with a henley neckline for a more tailored look. But if you love this top like we do - and your size is already sold out - it's also on sale at DVF's website, and you'll get free shipping & returns there, too.

Why is it a Sale Find? We love a good maxi dress. They dress up and down with ease, just based on your accessories, and that is certainly true with this MICHAEL Michael Kors one. The pop of pink pattern along the bottom gives you the best of both worlds – the simplicity and slimming effects of black, with some color and fun just right for the warm weather.
Wear it with: Flat sandals and a stylish scarf keep it casual, while heeled sandals, a clutch, and a short, statement necklace (that won’t interfere with the keyhole neckline) will dress it up for an outdoor party or cocktails.
Fit Tip: This is a modern fit, running true to size with a relaxed shape that is shaped by the fabric self tie at the waist. (Tip: We love switching out a fabric belt for a leather one. It adds instant polish and gives more definition to your waistline, which is very slimming.)
Alternatives: Petite ladies rejoice. This dress comes in petite, too, so you don’t need to worry about how you’ll maintain that great border detail.

Nic+Zoe - Disco Twist Print Side Knot Sheath Dress
Why is it a Sale Find? The amazing silhouette is enough of a reason to fall in love with this Nic+Zoe dress. But the pretty pink/blue/black color combination in the print doesn’t hurt, either.
Wear it with: Nude pumps give this dress a more tailored look for day - even work, thanks to the higher jewel neckline, bra-friendly sleeveless style, and knee-skimming length. Switching your shoes to something metallic or strappy, instantly adds some flare that is perfect for a brunch, shower, or great night out.
Fit Tip: Nic+Zoe runs true to size, in a modern fit available in sizes XS-XL, and Petite. It is even lined to ensure a smooth line. The twist detail at the waist is what makes this silhouette any lady’s best friend, accenting your waist and creating subtle ruching that helps conceal any dreaded belly bumps.

Why is it a Sale Find? The black-and-white pattern is seriously slimming thanks to the body skimming silhouette that flares out at just the right spot of the hip to highlight the narrowest part of your torso, while stylishly working around your hips and behind. The sweater knit material isn’t too heavy, and has a nice weight to it, which creates smooth lines – it doesn’t cling, like some Summer weight fabrics can.
Wear it with: The crewneck, and short sleeve make it a great option for the office when paired with simple nude or black pumps. Keep in mind that the length is closer to the knee on most ladies than on the model shown. But the print gives it some stylish attitude that will be just as appropriate for a night out or for a daytime party. For times like that, have some fun with strappy heels or a pop of color in your shoes and bag. Add a bold cuff bracelet for a modern edge.
Fit Tip: MICHAEL Michael Kors has a modern fit, and this tailored shape should fit in your normal size, S-XL.
Alternatives: Michael Kors also has a similar style on sale if you prefer a long sleeve and some great waist ruching.

Why is it a Sale Find? An LBD (Little Black Dress, of course) on sale is always worth a second glance. And once you do that with this one, you won’t hesitate to add it to your cart. The pleat details keeps the dress from being ordinary, and accentuate your figure perfectly. 
Wear it with: Nude or black pumps are our favorites to stick with the timeless, classic look of this dress. But if you want to give it a little party flair, colorful, patterned pumps or metallic strappy heels will do the trick. Simple stud earrings are appropriate for the office, but go with something chunky – and add a great bracelet – at night.
Fit Tip: The midweight fabric is lined and has a bit of stretch, creating smooth lines that won’t highlight any bumps. It's cut to skim your body in a seriously flattering way. Adrianna Papell has a modern fit, meant for any lady, in sizes 2-16.
Alternatives: This dress comes in lots of colors besides black. At these prices, you may want more than one.

Why is it a Sale Find? This Maggy London dress works whether you are going to a party or just want something summery to wear on a pretty day. This is one of our favorite figure-flattering silhouettes. The fit-and flare shape highlights your waist and is easy around the hips/behind, while the armholes cut in slightly on the shoulders, which is a fabulous trick to give definition to your shoulders.
Wear it with: The lined eyelet cotton fabric can be worn with dressy sandals when you are heading off to an event, dinner, or cocktails. But if you’re just tooling around town for the day, throw on cute white sneakers or flip flops and a crossbody bag.
Fit Tip: Maggy London dresses have a modern fit, and this is no exception. Up to size 16, go with your normal size. It even comes in Petite, so the proportions will be just right for everyone.
Alternatives: Eliza J’s blue floral dress is a great alternative if you’re looking for a pattern that is perfect for a daytime affair – and also at a super sale price. Like a sleeve? This pale blue lace dress is a beauty.

Why is it a Sale Find? These Alexis Bittar earrings are just the right mix of edge and timeless style. The stone has the look of marble, but is faceted for a really updated look that works with the subtle little chain that connects to the backing.

Why is it a Sale Find? Patricia Green certainly knows how to add just the right amount of whimsy to give basic espadrilles a whole lot more attitude. The jute contrast stitching keeps the bow from looking too precious. And the mini 1” platform and lush suede upper ensures they won’t feel flimsy, which is often the downside of espadrilles.
Wear it with: Your shorts, sundresses, jeans, and lightweight pants will all look great with these sandals.
Fit Tip: They come in full sizes only, so order up to the next full size if you are between sizes.
Alternatives: Besides this fun orange, these sandals come in a pretty pink and sleek black through the ‘shop it’ button, too. And espadrilles in all styles are as popular as ever, so Vince’s closed version, also in suede, is just as Summer ready.

Tory Burch - Pottery Embroidered Triangle Silk Blend Scarf
Why is it a Sale Find? A great scarf can instantly refresh any of our closet staples. This one from Tory Burch incorporates classically crisp primary colors in an oversized shape that easily drapes around your neck.
Wear it with: As shown, we love how it pops simple white. And you’ll get plenty of wear out of it with all of the solids in your wardrobe. It looks amazing with denim, too.
Fit Tip: The triangle shape makes it easy to wrap around your neck as shown. You can also fold the point in to treat it as an oblong, so you don’t always need to show off the triangle shape of the scarf.
Alternatives: This Tory Burch scarf is all about soft blue, and it’s simply gorgeous.
