The end of summer might mean pulling out cold-weather clothes for most of the country, but for us Southerners it just means a wardrobe refresh with discounted designer dresses and bright threads scored during department stores’ summer sales. Sure, Macy’s might have to clear out the sundress rack in favor of sports coats, but down in Dixie we know we don’t have to retire our espadrilles for equestrian boots quite yet.
Here, our staffers show off some of their latest low-price, high-style finds:
Associate Art Director Erynn Hassinger wows us with her summer steal from Loft. Originally priced at $98, Erynn scored this show-stopping dress for $42.99
Senior Travel Editor Erin Street shows a punch of color with this Tulle dress from The Black Market Boutique in Lexington, Kentucky for only $60 with Chelsea Crew shoes for only $56.
Production Manager Mary Elizabeth Davis makes us green with envy from her stylish savings with this kelly-green pencil skirt from J. Crew for a lucky deal of only $44.50.
Assistant Photo Editor Kate Phillips struck gold with the structured Tory Burch coat, originally priced at $900, for only $170. And yes, we did just say $170.
Photo Assistant Stacy Allen knows striped sweaters never go out of style. And for the price of only $17.99 from J.Crew, she could buy one in every color.
Travel and Features Fellow Jeanne Lyons has plenty of time before labor day to wear her embroidered ivory blouse from Madewell. $109? Too big. $49? Just right.
