The way we choose to spend our money has always been a political decision, and in this moment of historic unemployment and massive social change, each person’s shopping checklist may look a little bit different. We usually do a summer sale story around this time of year, and we decided that this time it would be most helpful to divide it into sections that make it easy to shop according to your needs or priorities right now. Below, you’ll find our edit of discounted pieces, for those keeping a close eye on their bank account, and a section for brands giving back, for those who want to make a positive impact with their spending.
This list will be updated over the next few weeks as sales are updated, so check back regularly.
