Designer names and an average savings of more than $200? You can’t beat this week’s top picks (plus you didn’t even have to look for them yourself).

1. Nanette Lepore dress
Was: $398.00
Now: $180.00

You save: $218.00

2. Silk-crepe dress

3. Silk blouse
Was: $235.00
Now: $82.00

You save: $153.00

Why buy? Here’s the thing: you can keep buying a new $40 white button-up blouse twice a year or you can buy this silk one from Theory, which will last you much, much longer.

4. Mixed material jacket
Was: $498.00
Now: $197.97

You save: $300.03

Why buy? I’m a big fan of shopping out-of-season because of savings like this. Oxblood was a huge color last fall and that trend isn’t likely to go anywhere. Snatch this up now and be the envy of fashionistas everywhere come October.

5. Halston pleated skirt
Was: $375.00
Now: $75.00

 

You save: $300.00

Why buy? You can’t beat Halston Heritage when it comes to pleats or draping. This brightly colored skirt in the former works all year long.
