Between Prime Day and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, we’ve had our eagle eyes scouting can’t-beat-’em deals all week. (As if that’s any different from any other week…) After you’ve checked out your Amazon and Nordstrom carts, there’s another sale you may want to shop: Anthropologie.

Anthro’s sale section is stocked with thousands—thousands!—of summer styles on serious sale (an extra 40 percent off!)—especially the dresses (but also the breezy tops, bottoms, and shoes to match). Now’s the time to find a beautifully breezy sundress for your college roomie’s upcoming wedding, or buy the biggest brimmed bucket hat we’ve ever seen. (Hello, sun protection!) If the heatwave infiltrating my apartment is any indication, there is still plenty of warm weather to come, so you’ll get plenty of wear with these summery pieces before it’s time to break out your boots and sweaters.

We’ve rounded up more than a dozen of our favorite finds (dresses, but also some other style picks—we couldn't help ourselves) below, from a jaw-dropping gingham halter dress made to worn to picnics, to a pair of Shiv Roy-approved chino culottes. But this is just the tip of the Anthro sale iceberg. To stock your closet with more budget-friendly finds, click here to browse Anthropologie’s entire sale selection.

moon river dress
Moon River Off-The-Shoulder Cutout Maxi Dress — $100.00

Originally $148, now $100

If you haven’t dipped your toe into the puffy sleeve trend yet, here’s your chance to try it without breaking your budget. This crisp cotton dress has it all: a ruched bodice, the slightest sliver of an open midriff, those standout off-the-shoulder sleeves, and a seriously slashed sale price. For brides-to-be, this dress would be a beautiful and comfortable option for your bridal shower or rehearsal dinner.

Available sizes: XXS-XL standard, XS-XL petite

Colors: white

By Anthropologie Textured Smocked Midi Dress — $100.00

Originally $180, now $100

This is *the* ultimate sundress. While it’s available in black, we love the option in chartreuse, which is bright and definitely more unique than anything we’ve got in our closets. The smocking in the bodice gives it texture and a little romance, while the wide straps are pure summer. Made from a Lyocell-polyamide-elastane blend, this piece is lightweight and stretchy. We’ll be wearing it all season long.

Available sizes: XXS-XL

Colors: 2

maxi coverup
By Anthropologie The Alani Maxi Cover-Up — $60.00

Originally $118, now $60

Stumped on what to wear over your swimsuit? We’ve found the solution. This flirty open back cover-up is colorful, lightweight, and easy to pack in your beach bag or suitcase. Just keep in mind that it’s unlined and fairly sheer, which is perfect for the beach, but makes it tricky to wear solo.

Available sizes: XS-XL

Colors: 2

maeve low pleated trim dress
Maeve High-Low Pleated-Trim Dress — $100.00

Originally $180, now $100

This dress is just begging to be worn on a stroll to the ice cream shop, or a trip to the park. We love the out-of-the-box features like the high bodice paired with thin spaghetti straps. The frills make it extra fun, too. Made of cotton-viscose blend, the material is ultra breathable for hot temps.

Available sizes: 00-16, 0-16 petite

Colors: maize

gingham halter
Verb by Pallavi Singhee Gingham Halter Dress — $120.00

Originally $220, now $120

This showstopper of a gingham dress not only features a classic, pretty halter fit, but it has a little cut-out right above the waist (and cut-outs are *all* the rage this year). Another sweet touch? The floral detailing that looks like it’s cross-stitched on. Made of cotton with cotton lining, this dress is really sturdy (and the black and white easily hides sweat, which is a big pro for us).

Available sizes: XXS-XL

Colors: black and white


anthropologies square neck dress
By Anthropologie Square-Neck Pleated Mini Dress — $100.00

Originally $160, now $100

This piece is giving “exercise dress,” which we are fine with, because exercise dresses are *the* uniform of summer. The square neck and black and white style is classic, meaning you can pair this with statement heels, or your Adidas tennis shoes—it is so versatile. A little sporty, a little ’50s vintage, we are absolutely in love with all the possibilities this dress brings. And made of a nylon-poly blend, it’s lightweight and stretchy, too.

Sizes available: XS-XL, standard, petite, plus

pointelle sweater
By Anthropologie V-Neck Pointelle Sweater Tank — $60.00

Originally $88, now $60

This on-sale sweater tank is so effortlessly elegant, it’s bound to be a new wardrobe VIP. Its natural fit is loose and drapey—perfect for allowing airflow on sweltering summer days—but if you prefer a slimmer fit, size down. Pair it with high-waisted shorts now, and then once the leaves start to change color, layer it over a form-fitting turtleneck or under an oversized blazer. This tank is available in four colors as well as standard, plus, and petite sizing, so you’re sure to find the perfect fit for you.

Available sizes: S-3X, XS-XL petite

Colors: 4

metallic cami
4SI3NNA Metallic Pleated Cami — $50.00

Originally $88, now $50

Add this head turner of a cami to your closet and you can consider your New Year’s Eve outfit halfway complete. All you need is a pair of tailored black trousers or a sequin skirt, and voila! You’ll look and feel like a shiny disco ball every time you rock this top, and for the extraverts among us that’s a good (a really, really good) thing. You’ll get plenty of wear out of this top all year long though, and since it’s lined with a fitted cami you can let out a sigh of relief knowing you won’t need to wear an uncomfortable strapless bra underneath. With this sale price it’s not a question of whether or not to add this tank to your Anthro cart, but which color you love the most: gold, pink, or silver.

Available sizes: XXS-XL
Colors: 3

maeve puffy knotted sandals
Maeve Puffy Knotted Sandals — $60.00

Originally $80, now $60

Slip on these leather puffy sandals, and you may finally retire your seen-better-days sandals from summers past. With a square toe and polished knot, they prove sandals can be equally stylish and comfortable, whether you’re headed out on a first date or are simply taking the dog around the block. Get your “add to basket” fingers warmed up now though; sizes in all five colors (brown, gold, black, chocolate, pink) are selling out fast. Plus, you’ll get to show off your pretty pedicure as you’re fielding non-stop “I love your shoes!” compliments. Win/win!

Available sizes: 6-10

Maeve Remi Wide-Leg Crop Chino Pants — $70.00

Originally $108, now $70

Who says beige chinos are boring? One glance at these sharp wide-leg tailored trousers and you’ll be convinced they’re a must-have elevated basic. Their cropped length pairs perfectly with strappy sandals, and is ideal for showing off your booties come autumn, too. Act fast though!
