The return to the office is approaching quickly for many and if you're already asking yourself, "What do I wear when I go back this fall?," you're definitely not alone. After a year and some change of putting the concept of a "real" 'fit on the backburner, it's hard to adjust back. But now's the time to flip the switch and think about those impending office looks that are more elegant than sweats yet don't fully comprise the comfort you've become used to while working from home. 

Universal Standard is a size-inclusive brand that's perfected the formula of pieces that are totally work-approved but just as comfortable as your favorite at-home clothes. As luck would have it, the brand recently dropped its once-a-year sample sale where you can snag pieces for up to 75 percent off — just in time to plan your first day back outfit! 

There are hundreds of items marked down during this rare sale, and while we'd gladly scoop up everything the brand has to offer, from its ″magic″ jeans that shoppers can't stop gushing over to its perfectly simple basics that you'll wear for years, there are a handful of standout pieces you simply don't want to miss. 

If you're on the hunt for not-your-average jeans, Universal Standard's beloved Sava High-Rise Jeans are just that. Not only are they sure to become your new wear-everywhere denim, but they're also currently 40 percent off, costing you a reasonable $58 right now. Customers have called them everything from "the most amazing jeans ever" to a "denim holy grail." They're also made from a stretchy cotton-poly blend that's comfy yet flattering, so really, what's not to love? The brand suggests sizing down in these (and if you're not sure of your correct Universal Standard size, check out their guide). 

Other staples you should probably buy ASAP include this gorgeous vegan leather slip dress that  can be worn year-round, these cargo pants that are majorly in for summer and fall, and supremely comfy wide-leg trousers that are sure to be your new favorite office pants (trust me, I own a pair and can't praise these enough).

One thing to note: Universal Standard's sizing isn't what you're typically used to seeing — meaning the brand's "M" isn't a regular "M." Instead, go with your numerical size, so if you're usually between a size 6 and 8, you'd select a 2XS, for example. 

Whether you're looking for cute summer dresses or office-ready basics, you'll find it all at Universal Standard's sale. It goes until August 2, but pieces are already selling out. Shop our favorite sample sale finds below.
