We Hand-Picked the Best Designer Buys From This Year's Summer Sales

Unlike the January sales (which all start within a week of each other), the summer sales can be harder to keep track of. Their start dates are staggered across the months, meaning you have to be more strategic. Well, we can officially report that some key retailers have already released their discounts, most notably premium retailers such as Net-a-Porter, MATCHESFASHION.COM, 24S and Farfetch, which are all offering great discounts on designer buys. Prepare to get clicking.

Of course, we're being drawn towards those cult buys we've spotted all over our Instagram feeds so far this year, but we're also picking out those classic pieces we'll still want to wear for many years to come. We're talking crossbody bags, versatile tailoring, throw-on dresses and everything in between. To help you navigate the often confusing summer sale season, we're alerting you when the big events start and pointing you towards the best buys around. We've made a succinct edit below of the top-tier, best-of-the-best products you simply can't miss. Happy browsing!
