For fashion lovers, the Labor Day weekend is much more than a long weekend away from work. Aside from Black Friday, Labor Day typically has brought some of the best fashion sales of the year. While you should never feel obligated to shop for things you don't need just because they're on sale, the Labor Day weekend brings the chance to buy those must-have pieces or pricier items that will elevate your wardrobe, for less. To best tackle the sales, you'll want to establish a plan for what you'll purchase and need.


Since Labor Day weekend sales will be everywhere, you want to ensure you get the best deals possible without spending on things you don't need. Consider cost per wear before splurging on ticket items this weekend to maximize every dollar. You also want to consider using these sales to invest in basics and must-have pieces that might be pricier but will last you for years to come. No matter how you take on the deals, have fun building the wardrobe of your dreams while saving a few extra dollars.

Affordable finds on Amazon

For those looking for the ultimate deals, Amazon is the right spot for your Labor Day weekend shopping. Not only do you get the benefit of free two-day shipping, but you can get significant deals on some exciting items. While Amazon already has lower prices on some of your favorite products, the Labor Day weekend will bring up to 74% off on their fashion selections. Like most of Amazon's holiday sales, there is no specific timeframe for Labor Day deals, but you want to grab them soon as they'll likely run out. High-ticket brands like New Balance and Levi's will be on sale, along with smaller brands with must-have fall essentials. Grab basics like wide-leg pants and trousers that will be a base for your future outfits.


For seasonal pieces, you can also take this opportunity to grab comfy sweatshirts that will be 16% off their original price. Another trendy item you should keep your eye on is footwear. Boots and Mary Jane shoes will also be on sale, with some as low as $37.54 for the weekend. Look out for upcoming flash sales that will only be up for an hour and constantly rotate out.

Investment pieces

Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to grab those unique high-end pieces you've had your eye on all season long. Not only are they good quality, but you'll use them repeatedly. Stores like Nordstrom are the perfect places to find investment pieces, as they hold numerous items of almost every brand possible. For Labor Day, Nordstrom will have up to 60% off items until September 12. This extended time gives you plenty of chances to shop some of your favorite brands like Good American, Tory Burch, and other designers. Don't miss your chance to score a lower price tag on high-end brands.


Another place to look for Labor Day sales is Anthropologie. Although the brand caters to young adult women, numerous fashion deals work for any age or style. These trendy and unique styles hardly see a sale, so now's the chance to grab that item that's been in your cart the entire season. Grab an extra 40% off sale items through September 4, which can see many of your favorite pieces selling out fast. You can also count on many specialized sizes in the sale, meaning you can find petite, standard, and plus sizes. With unique colors and designs, this is your chance to grab items you won't find anywhere else.

Must-have basics

If your closet is full of items you never wear, you likely bought them because they were on sale. While sales are tempting, they can lead to plenty of clothes you'll never wear. Rather than continuing this cycle, you should turn to buying essential items that will serve you through every season. J.Crew has the perfect mix of minimalist clothing for officewear or building up your street-style wardrobe. Grab must-have select pieces to complete your practical minimalist wardrobe for 40% off until September 4. 


If you're looking to build up on your denim jeans, button-downs, and plain tees, you can't go wrong at Everlane. With up to 70% off this Labor Day weekend, you can get closet staples that won't go out of style. While you might not have as many options, these high-quality pieces will likely run out of stock this weekend. Grab their infamous Organic Wide-Leg Pants or one of their Linen Workwear Shirts for as low as $29 during the sale.

Activewear deals

Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to grab all your fall and winter activewear pieces to keep your workout routine in check year-round. Get ready for your fall "hot girl" walks with discounted items from Nike, one of the most prominent activewear brands. Get trendy workout clothes and athleisure wear for the weekend for up to 40% off. Grab cozy leggings to wear inside and out for the upcoming cold weather and workout gear that'll keep you stylish as you sweat. With simple leggings on sale and unique street-style-inspired dresses and tops, you can build a comfortable wardrobe you can work in.


This weekend is also an excellent opportunity to try smaller activewear brands slowly developing a cult following. Outdoor Voices has become more prominent recently thanks to its trendier approach to activewear. Besides being able to wear it to the gym, you can also rock this brand's pieces to brunch afterward. With up to 70% off activewear items, there's no reason not to look fashionable at your next yoga class.
