Shopbop is cleaning out what the rich people who usually shop there didn’t want by taking an additional 30% off all sale items. You can get up to 75% off with the combined deals! The sale ends Thursday, so if there is anything you had your eye on but didn’t want to spend at ton of money on—think chic boots, big coats, and the like—now is the time! Sure, it’s probably all picked over because Shopbop’s usual clients can afford to pay full price, but I cannot do so, and so I am excited. Finally, I can look like a last-season rich person! Here are some chic finds to give you inspiration, but they have over 8,500 items on sale, so make sure you waste your entire work day scrolling through it all. Here are some timeless items that you can buy on sale and no one will ever know.
If you don’t have a cute leather jacket, this is the perfect time to pick one up. You’ll get plenty of use out of it no matter the season. Leather (or even faux leather) jackets tend to be super expensive, unless you buy one from Forever 21 or Nasty Gal but they always do that weird shredding thing after a few wears (why???). This is the kind of item where you want high quality, but since you probably don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars, get a better jacket during this insane sale. I love BB Dakota’s jackets, and this one is the perfect cut for universal wear. They have tons of other ones available so check out all the different styles.
Cute backpacks are everywhere, and I’m all for a trend that is fashionable and also super convenient. Now isn’t the time to pull out that one baby blue Jansport we all had in middle school that you probably covered with your original lyrics in Sharpie (yikes). Get a super chic backpack like this Rebecca Minkoff, which normally would be really expensive, but it’s almost half off! It’s perfect for work, travel, or just to keep all your important sh*t together during the day. This is a backpack for grown-ass adults who have their lives together, and your POS uncle who always asks when you’re going to get a “real job” will see that when you go home for Christmas.
If you’re almost 30 (hi), all of your friends are getting married this next year and you’ll have a lot of weddings to attend. Instead of waiting until the last second to try to find something that’s formal enough, fits well, and doesn’t break the bank, buy a few nice dresses now. You’ll be prepared and won’t blow a ton of money on a dress you hate. You always need some cute go-to cocktail dresses so if you’re sick of trying to squeeze into your graveyard of sorority formal dresses even though you gained 25 pounds (I’m not crying, you’re crying), stock up while they are marked down.
If you didn’t already get a new pair of tall boots during the fall (shame), buy some now. Much like the leather jacket, boots are always needed and it’s better to go for higher quality since you’ll wear them so much. If you already have some over-the-knee or thigh high boots, go for some tall slouchy ones like these Jeffrey Campbell’s. I can’t do math but they are A LOT off and you’ll have them forever.
Chic mules will be everywhere come spring, so get a nice pair now while everyone is distracted buying snow boots. Mules are soooo comfortable and easy to throw on but look way classier than sandals. There are like a hundred (or more) pairs available during this Shopbop sale, so you can find anything from bright colors, furry, sequins, leopard, etc. I adore these studded pointed-toe ones, but if you have the cash, buy them all. These are boss bitch shoes personified.
Faux Fur Coat
Fur coats are everywhere, mostly because they look glamorous but also because they are super warm. The problem is that if you get a cheap one, it won’t be soft or comfortable and you’ll look like a cheap Hollywood Blvd sex worker. If you don’t have one you love, splurge a little on a nice one from Shopbop. It’s another item that really doesn’t ever go out of style, and thankfully, they are all on sale right now. If you already have a teddy bear or basic black, go for a fun color or animal print. I like faux not real fur because #animals.
