Save 60%: For anyone wanting a slight update to one of the most iconic eyewear designs in history, these shades from Ray-Ban are more than a good deal. There are a lot of sunglass companies out there trying to throw shade, and a lot of them have offerings in the same price range, but few approach the quality and icon-status of real Wayfarers. That’s why, many decades after they first hit the market, the classic design is still everywhere you look.
This specific model features nylon frames rather than acetate, lending to a more lightweight and flexible feel when worn, plus a slightly more rounded profile than the original Wayfarer design. These qualities lend to a modern look that’s right at home with any style under the sun — and if you’re under the sun, you’ll want these on your face. — Andy Frakes
Save 15% The Sunday transit joggers are my ideal sweatpant. In true Vuori form, these sweats are so much more than a sleek pant to pull on when you finally trash your old college sweats. Founder Joe Kudla named the company after the Finnish word for mountain, and you’d be hardpressed to find a piece that won’t perform as well as look great on the side of any high peak. These joggers are simultaneously stylish for running errands, high-performing enough for workouts, yet still cozy for Monday night football. Pick up a pair today and you can save 15 percent. Pick up the corresponding zip hoodie or pullover, and stock up on workout shorts and shirts on Huckberry. — Meg Lappe

Patagonia Rain Jacket Sale
Save $70 When it rains, you have two defenses: a jacket and an umbrella. No matter where you fall on the spectrum of hating or loving umbrellas, we can all agree that a hard-working rain jacketis imperative during this time of year. It’s pretty much the only way to stay relatively dry while you’re commuting, heading out to meet friends or even hiking. The Patagonia stretch rainshadow jacket does all that, and more.
The pullover style coat features a three-quarter zipper with a kangaroo pouch for storage directly underneath. Two and a half layers make up the breathable nylon shell, so you don’t have to dread those humid rainy days — and when you do get hot, zip open the venting found in the armpits. When the clouds disappear, stuff the jacket into its chest pocket and attach to your bag with a carabiner. It’s easy to carry and pack for any upcoming excursions. Right now it’s $71 off its original price in two rich blue colors. — Meg Lappe
