Insomniac Sale Picks: Summer Raincoats and Rain Jackets

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Claudia requested a few picks for summer raincoats and rain jackets, so here we go:

 

columbia raincoat

Columbia Pardon My Trench Rain Jacket – was $100, now $52.30

This lightweight, breathable rain coat sits squarely in the middle of sporty and polished, and could skew either way depending on how it’s styled. Put up the hood and tie the belt in back for casual, or belt up and add a hat for a slightly dressier look. Vented for air flow and machine washable. Available in this olive as well as coral or ice blue in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also in more colors at a variety of prices on Amazon. 1X – 3X in ice blue here, and coral, olive, or pink in 1X – 3X here.

yellow raincoat

Bernardo Packable Hooded Rain Jacket – was $88, now $57.90

Sportier and brighter, this packable jacket will perk up any late-summer outfit. Unlined and lightweight, you can wear this without fear of overheating. Available in this pale yellow as well as mint green in sizes XS – L, including petite sizes. This similar style is available in sizes 1X – 3X. Like the style but not a fan of these colors? This Columbia coat comes in orchid pink in regular and plus sizes.

leopard print rain coat

AmeriMark Packable Raincoat – was $22.99, now $17.99 – $22.99

Leopard print won’t be for everyone, but this button-through A-line coat also comes in solid black, solid fuchsia, and a multi-colored dot print. Lightweight and packable, this coat gets great reviews though it sounds like sizing can be a bit wacky. Available in sizes S – 4X. Want something similar but a bit dressier? This black DKNY coat comes in regular and plus sizes.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for summer raincoats and rain jackets:

  1. Eddie Bauer – My own lightweight rain jacket is EB and I LOVE it. Tall, petite, and plus sizes available in some sizes.
  2. Land’s End – Tons of colors, prints, and stylish options. This printed storm jacket is fab.
  3. Nordstrom – Everything from lightweight trenches to sporty jackets.

Insomniac Sale Picks: 3/4-sleeve Tops

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Tara requested a few picks for 3/4-sleeve tops, so here we go:

 

nydj henley blouse

NYDJ 3/4 Sleeve Henley Blouse – was $88, now $40.15 – $88

So I really wanted to include this blouse because it comes in more than a dozen pretty prints and solids, petite sizes, and plus sizes, but each color/print is only available in handful of sizes, or only a few are on sale. So this blouse is on sale in XS and S, but Amazon has more than 25 other options in various sizes and colors, and Nordstrom has arrays in regular, petite, and plus sizes, too and a few are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, going on now.

linen sweatshirt

Halogen 3/34-sleeve Linen-blend Sweatshirt – was $48, now $28.80

Can’t say this looks much like a sweatshirt to me, but the linen blend and bright rose color make it ideal for late summer wear. Also love that deep V neckline, which flatters most faces and leaves ample room for a killer necklace. Available in sizes XS – XL. Couldn’t find a linen blend, but this V-neck 3/4-sleeve sweater is available in sizes 1X – 5X and petite sizes.

heart blouse

Ikat Heart Blouse – was $76, now $29.97

Heart prints can get a bit twee, but the stylized Ikat and blue/white color scheme conspire to make this blouse more cool than cute. The sleeves do unroll to full-length, but hit at 3/4 when tabbed. Available in sizes XS – L. This tab-sleeve heart-print blouse is available in petite and a few plus sizes, and this one in sizes 18 -28.

talbots_sweater

Talbots Envelope-shoulder Sweater – was $69.50, now $29.99

Another great linen knit, but this one a bit more substantial and with a higher, more modest neckline. I love this earthy olive, but you can get this 3/4-sleeve sweater in black, coral, pink, or pale blue in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in petite, plus, and petite plus sizes.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for 3/4-sleeve tops:

  1. Nordstrom – You can search by sleeve length! This knit button-front is super cool.
  2. Boden – Another site that lets you search for 3/4 sleeves. Love this zip-detail ponte top.
  3. Talbots – And ditto! The vibrant print on this bateau-neck tee is such fun.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Wide-strap Slip Dresses

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Ali requested a few picks for wide-strap slip dresses, so here we go:

 

CL0036859MP

eShakti Pintuck Pleat Floral Trapeze Dress – was $89.95, now $49.95

So when I think of slip dresses, I think specifically of spaghetti straps … but if those are out, you’ve still got a dress style that lacks a hard waistline and has an A-line shape. This floaty trapeze dress fits the bill, and has the requested wider straps along with a very pretty print. Available in sizes 0 – 36W. Customizations available for sleeve, hem length, and neckline. eShakti also has this simple striped trapeze dress in a similar shape.

cotton slip dress

Novica Knee-length Cotton Dress – was $136.95, now $86.99

Or you have the floaty white cotton dress that looks a bit like an actual slip. This Novica one is fair trade and made by an artisan in Bali. Available in sizes S – L. Novica has a few other white cotton options, too, or check out this eyelet frock (in regular, petite, and plus) and this lovely linen maxi. Torrid has some gorgeous white dresses with wide straps in plus sizes, though not all are cotton.

4130330450307_066_b

Anthropologie Feathered Palm Swing Dress – was $168, now $71.96
with code SALEAWAY

And this one’s somewhere in between the two – a loose, swing silhouette with a white background and a lovely watercolor print. Love the subtle neckline ruching. Available in sizes XS – L, including some petite sizes. This white floral dress is available in sizes 14W – 24W.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for wide-strap slip dresses:

  1. ASOS – Has an entire category for slip dresses, and includes a few with wider straps.
  2. Anthropologie – Loads of gorgeous styles like this sweet lace shift. Use code SALEAWAY for an extra 20% off sale items.
  3. Amazon – “Trapeze” will work better as a search term than “slip.” Or look for white cotton options.
