    1. 40% off a luxuriously soft rib-knit Madewell cardigan to keep you warm all pumpkin spice season long.


    Promising review: "I’ve been on the hunt for a classic neutral cardigan and this is it! Love the ribbed texture and the patch pockets. It looks and feels so luxurious. I see myself getting wear out of this sweater for years to come." —Mschris12

    Price: $88.80 (originally $148, available in sizes S-XL)

    2. 40% off a pair of leather and suede Sam Edelman ankle boots you'll throw on day after day with your favorite jeans, midi dresses, mini skirts — you name it.


    Promising review: "These are so beautiful, both the shape and the color. The toe is pretty pointy, and I haven’t worn them all day yet, but it’s not uncomfortable just trying them on and walking around a bit. Good heel height." —hope0110

    Price: $95.90 (originally $159.95, available in sizes 5-12 and in three colors)

    3. 50% off a pair of high-waisted Reformation linen pants that also come in a stunning leopard print for when you want to take a walk on the wild side.


    Promising review: "I am 5'9" and a size 10-12 and I love these pants. Super flattering. I ordered the 12 (knowing how small Reformation runs) and I probably should have ordered the 10 as the 12 are a touch too big. They are a nice, sturdy linen. I bought the cheetah print — highly recommend. Nicely cropped, did not experience the length issues that the other person who left a review did, but I can see that being an issue for someone more petite. Fellow tall gals, rejoice!" —SammySweatpants

    Price: $89 (originally $178, available in sizes 12-24 and in two colors)

    4. 40% off an absolutely essential Halogen leather moto jacket you'll wear all the time, in every season, basically every day, for the rest of your life.


    Promising review: "I needed a lightweight leather jacket for fall and boy did this deliver. It's buttery soft, not too heavy, fits, and zips close (other jackets I have run small but not this one)." —crysta0fashion

    Price: $179.40 (originally $299, available in sizes XS-XL)

    5. 40% off a pair of super soft mid-rise Rag & Bone ankle skinny jeans you should stock up on — since they're on sale and all.


    Promising review: "Comfortable, soft fabric, and with a medium to dark wash — perfect for work. I wear a 25 in most denim, but in these, I ended up ordering the 24. The 25 were too loose in the leg and hip; there was a lot of extra fabric that was bunching and the fabric has a lot of stretch to it so definitely needed to go down a size. I'm 5'0" and the jeans were slightly higher than mid-rise on me and the leg hit me like a typical full-length skinny jean, which is fine with me." —topspinRLU

    Price: $149.98 (originally $250, available in sizes 23-34)

    6. 40% off a chic and cozy ribbed Nordstrom Signature cashmere sweater designed with a dropped shoulder and funnel neck for ultimate cuddle-up ness.


    Promising review: "I wasn’t looking for a sweater, but this beauty caught my eye on the rack — something about the stripes looked super classy. Then I felt/saw it was cashmere and I fell in love. This will be a go-to on chilly days when I want to look cute and stay warm!" —SavvyRVA

    Price: $179.40 (originally $299, available in sizes M-XL)

    7. 40% off a classic and super pretty pair of Nike Air Max 95 sneakers you'll perfectly match with your favorite leggings — you know the ones you wear all the time.


    Promising review: "LOVE these sneakers. They’re perfect for that athleisure look. The colors are beautiful. I’ve been stopped a few times by folks that want to know more about them. Great purchase!" —Vannie74

    Price: $95.98 (originally $160, available in sizes 5-12 and in three colors)

    8. 50% off a whimsical Rebecca Taylor silk-blend jumpsuit you can easily dress up with a strappy heel or down with your favorite white sneakers.


    Price: $247.49 (originally $495, available in sizes 00-14)

    9. 40% off a delightful linen-blend Staud midi dress designed with a V-neck, seamed bodice, and blouson sleeve that looks almost as romantic as your life is about to become.


    Price: $164.98 (originally $275, available in sizes 0-12)

    10. 15% off a set of volumizing T-3 hot rollers you can throw on while you get ready in the morning and then have body and shine all day long.


    Promising review: "I got these when they first came out and they are the ONLY hot rollers that will curl my hair for the entire day! 'Till I shower! Even when humid outside I'm curled!!" —callmeblonde

    Price: $99 (originally $119)

    11. 33% off an attention-grabbing trench style Avec les Filles wool-blend coat that's designed in a subtle plaid that's neutral enough to go with everything.


    Promising review: "Beautiful, full length coat! It is a soft wool, true-to-photo, and is definitely oversized. I bought a large but I’m usually a small/medium. I plan to layer and go with the oversized look. Even though it’s oversized on me, it’s not a bulky coat. Nice big front pockets and it is unlined. Overall, I love the coat." —Cartes

    Price: $199.90 (originally $300, available in sizes XS-XL)

    12. 40% off the always comfortable full-coverage Spanx Bra-llelujah! underwire bra which just might be the first bra you don't wanna rip off the second you walk through the door.


    Promising review: "Very comfortable — this is my second purchase of this item. I like the front clasp as it is easy to put on! Fits TTS." —acclowntant

    Price: $40.80 (originally $68, available in sizes 32B-32D and in two colors)

    13. 50% off a chocolately brown cropped suede Blank NYC trucker jacket you'll 100% need as part of your fall wardrobe.


    Promising review: "This jacket is fabulous! The color is rich and the suede is so soft. I love the tailored fit. It’s a piece I’ll wear for many years." —TawniU

    Price: $88.98 (originally $178, available in sizes XS-XL)

    14. 60% off a lightweight A.L.C babydoll dress designed with a gathered sweetheart bust, accordion-pleated skirt, and delightful bow detail on the back for all your going out and staying comfy needs.


    Price: $237.98 (originally $595, available in sizes 0-10)

    15. 40% off a wool blend Rag & Bone check blazer that's just so smart looking! (Also, that red collar doesn't hurt!)


    Promising review: "I bought this today in store and found it worth the investment. There are a lot of plaid jackets out for fall — some mumsy, some too trendy, some too big, some too short. This one was just right! And, although it is a classic, none of the others looked like it. I did size down to an 8 and I am never an 8 in blazers (I am a 34D). I like that it is not double-breasted which makes it look more tailored. The collar looks cool flipped up, too. It is versatile enough to wear to work or as a fall transition piece with jean shorts and a graphic tee. I am 5’8” but due to the fine tailoring and single button, it would not overwhelm someone with a shorter stature." —lmcdoc

    Price: $356.98 (originally $595, available in sizes 00-12)

    16. 40% off a mixed print, button-down Eliza J shirt dress which might just be the perfect fall dress — like, I'm almost certain.


    Promising review: "This dress is perfect for fall! I was expecting a thicker material, but it is a lightweight silky material that flows so well. I am 5’5", 115 lbs., and the 0 fits very well. It has a little bit of room in the waist but the sash brings it in perfectly! I highly recommend! It may be pricey, but it’s a classic, timeless piece!" —fashionislife101

    Price: $94.80 (originally $158, available in petite size 2 and regular size 12)

    17. 40% off a mixed check belted Tibi blazer, because who said we always have to be so serious when we're professional?


    Price: $356.98 (originally $595, available in sizes 4-12)

    18. 50% off a versatile and sturdy leather and suede Madewell crossbody tote capable of fitting everything you need while you're on the run.


    Promising review: "Great medium-sized cross body bag! I love how lightweight this bag is. It is well made and the leather is firm, but still very soft. The color is perfect for fall." —Bexi

    Price: $83.98 (originally $168).

    19. 40% off a super comfortable Zella hooded fleece jacket lined in an even comfier jersey material that just might make going to the gym a little better.


    Promising review: "I feel like a plush teddy bear in the best way possible. Bought my usual size. This jacket is oversized and appears to have a slight dolman style sleeve. Perfect for being cozy." —cleverblunders

    Price: $53.40 (originally $89, available in sizes M-XXL and in three colors).

    20. 40% off a pair of soft and sleek Paige skinny jeans, 'cause the best time to stock up on the essentials is when they're on sale — and these are on sale!


    Promising review: "This was my first pair of Paige jeans and they did not disappoint! They look really nice/dressy on and I could pair a more business casual top with these, or a cute cami to go out in. They also have a decent amount of stretch. These run TTS — for reference, I’m normally a 6-8 in pants (5’8”, 150 lbs.) and I ordered the 8/29. I’m contemplating buying another pair!" —katied23

    Price: $113.40 (originally $189, available in sizes 23-34)

    21. 40% off a chic belted Staud linen-blend jumpsuit that just might be cute enough to make the awkward nakedness in the bathroom stall worth it.


    Price: $149.98 (originally $250, available in sizes 10-12).

    22. 15% off the T3 Twirl Trio curling iron set designed with interchangeable clip barrels so you can get the perfect curl, no matter the size, from one device.


    Promising review: "This is my first T3 product and I'm enjoying it very much. It's lightweight, the barrel is long (allowing space for longer hair), and it heats up quickly. The locking mechanism is easy to use and locks tightly. The convertible wand size options are perfect." —GirlPiper

    Price: $274.99 (originally $325).

    23. 40% off professional AF tailored Veronica Beard blazer and matching houndstooth-check trousers, 'cause you a boss bae and this will be the outfit that proves it.


    Price: $389.98 for the blazer (originally $650, available in sizes 0-14) and $236.98 for the slacks (originally $395, available in sizes 0-12)

    24. 40% off a pair of pleated twill Tibi pants elegantly detailed with shirred drawstrings at the bottom hem — they're perfect for a night out! Like really perfect.
