According to the calendar, it’s only officially been summer for about a week. I haven’t even jumped in a pool or eaten a single popsicle yet! Still, retailers like J.Crew are already offering their warm-weather goods on serious sale. We mean serious, too—up to 60 percent off serious. That’s good news for you, your closet, and your budget.

You better hurry, though. Hundreds of summer styles are currently available with majorly slashed prices, so we imagine sizes (which range from XXS to 3X) will sell out fast. Now’s the time to stock your closet with everything you’ll need to round out your summer wardrobe: classic tees, comfortable swimwear, easygoing sundresses, and at least one wide-brimmed hat to shield you from harmful rays. When it comes to elevated basics with a twist, J.Crew has that look nailed down.

j crew dress
Smocked Linen-Blend Bandeau Beach Dress, $70-$95

Originally $148-$158, now $70-$95

Have a social calendar full of backyard barbecues, yet nothing to wear? That’s where this breezy beach dress comes in handy. We all need a sundress (or two—or 10) that we can grab on any given summer day, especially when the temps are scorching. This dress is ultra comfortable thanks to its breathable fabric, a cotton and linen blend, as well as its stretched smocked bodice. The straps are removable, giving you the option for a strapless look, and it’s available either in a purple pattern or solid black. Best yet: it’s currently 53 perfect off.

Available sizes: XXS-3X

Colors: 2

jcrew shorts
Pleated Capeside Short in Chambray — $50.00

Originally $90 now $50

If these shorts look familiar, you may recognize them as the summer version of J.Crew’s best-selling Capeside pant. Made of lightweight chambray fabric, these shorts give you the sophistication of a dress pant with the ease of a short. Win/win. The high rise is both flattering and comfortable, while the pleat instantly adds polish. On a casual day, wear these with a white tank, fisherman sandals, and consider your ensemble complete. To dress them up, add a kitten heel, a lightweight knit sweater, and piles of jewelry.

Available sizes: 00-24

jcrew beach shirt
Long Beach Shirt in Linen-Cotton Blend, $75-$102

Originally $118-$128, now $75-$102

Have you ever seen a sharper beach cover-up? We haven’t. While it’s a pool and beach must-have, there are countless other ways to wear this midi-length button-up shirt. Over a swimsuit, definitely. Worn open over jeans and a bodysuit, also yes. Come fall, wear it as a dress and layer a sweater vest over the top. Since it’s on serious sale, you’ll get your price-per-wear down to pennies in no time.

Available sizes: XXS-2X
Colors: 5

jcrew swimsuit
Plunge One-Piece, $55-$90

Originally $119, now $55-$90

Pool parties await! J.Crew currently has 96 pieces of swimwear on sale, and while they’re all worthy of strutting your stuff in, this super flattering one-piece is our top pick. The modestly covered bottom ensures no awkward wedgie picking, while the plunging neckline is both sexy and supportive. The fabric—which is made from recycled plastic bottles, yarns, and fabric scraps—even has built-in UPF 50 protection. (Just don’t forget to apply SPF too.) Now, which color are you going to choose? Will it be the Baywatch-worthy red, the hottest of hot pinks, and one of the more subtle shades?

Available sizes: 0-16
Colors: 7

jcrew pjs
End-On-End Cotton Pajama Short Set — $60.00

Originally $90, now $60

It’s time to say goodbye to the ratty T-shirt you’ve been rocking to bed since, well, you can’t even remember when. It’s also time to say goodbye to your long flannel PJs that kept you cozy and warm all winter and spring long. Upgrade to this chic—yet comfortable—pajama set while it’s on sale. This shorts set is available in four colors—fuschia, navy, white, and pale blue—all with sharp piping details, but the white feels particularly summer-appropriate. It’s made from 100 percent cotton (read: breathable!), so even on the most humid night, hopefully you won’t wake up sweaty.

jcrew puff sleeve
Puff-Sleeve Crewneck T-Shirt, $23-$35

A T-shirt, but make it fancy. That’s exactly what this versatile top is. The subtle puff detail on the sleeves elevates this fitting, flattering tee so you could wear it to work or, well, wherever, really. This is a no-brainer “add to cart” decision. At this price, you may want to stock up on one of every color, plus the black-and-white striped version to feel your most Parisian.

This is *the* quintessential J.Crew chambray short. These lightweight chambray shorts, which you will undoubtedly reach for day after day until it’s time to pack up the pool floaties for the season. The relaxed fit with a roomy leg make them just as easy to wear to your niece’s T-ball game as to happy hour with your besties.

jcrew smocked dress
V-Neck Smocked-Waist Dress, $100-$120

Originally $198, now $100-$120

We can picture it now: you, this dress, and a backyard wedding. The smocked waist and midi length couldn’t be more comfortable, and the eyelet hem adds a flirty touch. Deciding to add this cotton poplin dress to your cart won’t be difficult, but choosing which version may be. Will you choose the blue, white, black, or the multicolored floral option, which is a garden party in dress form? Hint, hint for brides-to-be: the white option would make a particularly pretty engagement party or rehearsal dinner dress.

jcrew hat
Textured Summer Straw Hat — $45.00

Originally $70, now $45

Every time you leave the house this summer, be sure to pack two things: sunscreen and this straw hat.

The more face and neck coverage, the better, so this extra wide brim passes our “will it protect our skin?” test. Since it’s made out of resilient paper straw, it’s nearly indestructible, easily flattening and folding into beach bags and suitcases. It’ll keep you feeling cool and looking cool.

Available sizes: One size

This one, made of 100 percent organic cotton, will be a year-round wardrobe warrior. Pair it with cut-off denim shorts and slides in the summer, then tuck it into a maxi skirt and step into booties once the temperatures take a dip. This classic-as-can-be option can even be monogrammed for a particularly preppy look, and since it’s available in sizes 00 to 24, as well as petite and tall sizing, you’ll likely find a perfect fit.
