Kick Off Summer in Style With 25 Essentials to Scoop On Sale Now

From the shorts you'll wear all season to the shoes you'll slip on when (if?) you leave the house.

Summer, the state of mind, might be on indefinite hiatus for now, but summer, the season, is right around the corner. The warm weather is coming whether we want it to or not, and as much as it doesn't feel like a top priority right now, prepping for those scorching summer days and slightly less-scorching summer nights sooner rather than later is always a good call.

If you're looking to stock up on summer essentials—from the shorts you'll wear all season to the shoes you'll slip on when (if?) you leave the house— now's the time to do it, because, as it happens, a metric shit ton of 'em are currently available on sale. I'm talking sneakers perfect for long, socially-distanced walks, tops that'll finally solve every T-shirt conundrum you've ever encountered (maybe), and the freshest lightweight layering pieces around for when it's time for you to say fuck it and flex as hard as you can, soaring temperatures be damned.

So kick off summer, the season, in style and keep your fingers crossed that summer, the state of mind, will follow shortly after.
