8 Vogue Editors Reveal What They’re Buying From the Memorial Day Sales

Now’s actually the best time to secure a new dress, shoes, or even a swimsuit at a fraction of the price because so many of our favorite retailers and brands are hosting the best Memorial Day sales online. Backyard barbecues and long days at the beach are already enough reasons to get excited about Memorial Day. But if you ask us, it’s the summer sales that really make the holiday weekend extra festive. And what better way to prepare for warm-weather dressing than by filling our closets with beautiful seasonally appropriate items that are sure to impress?

This year, Vogue editors are eyeing a mixture of items that certainly embody the spirit of the warm weather, like picnic-worthy crop tops and all-white linen dresses. And because the way we dress our homes is equally as important, we’re taking advantage of home decor sales too and stocking up on playful interior pieces to brighten up our spaces.

Ahead, you’ll discover exactly how Vogue editors are updating their closets and homes, thanks to the best Memorial Day sales taking place right now.

I’m forever on the hunt for classic black one-piece swimsuits. And though I have many, I have none that look like this incredibly chic Jonathan Simkhai suit. How divine is she?

I never knew I needed feather-plumed denim pants until I discovered these babies. Talk about reemergence style! Since they’re baggy, I’d like to wear them with a body-clinging ribbed white racerback tank and these stretchy mule heeled sandals from Neous for all the fun summer nights out with friends to come.

I’ve had my eye on A.P.C.’s Demi-Lune bag for years. It’s one of those classic crossbody bags you can easily throw over your shoulders for quick errands around the city or dress up more for dinner dates. Why did I wait so long to add to my cart? Now might be the time.

I’ve been looking for dresses I could wear to a fall wedding and also to the office when that time comes. This Pleats Please Issey Miyake dress is a tempting buy, with its mossy green color and comfortable silhouette.

Memphis design—the 1980s, postmodern Italian movement defined by its geometric shapes, curved lines, and bold colors—is having a moment, from interiors to fashion. (Thanks, Saint Laurent!) I’m eyeing this playful stool on 1stDibs, which was part of Kartell’s 2015 collection that served as a tribute to the canon’s founder, Ettore Sottsass. Just can’t decide if I should get it in pink or purple.

We only have a really small window of time to wear our summer best in New York, so I’m taking advantage of every sunny day and wearing beautiful crop tops and crisp white pants, like these Off-White and Victoria Beckham beauties I found on sale.
