Scouring through sales takes a lot of time and effort—but nothing pays off like finding the piece you laid eyes on months ago that was too pricey for your pocket. Here, InStyle’s senior fashion editor Stephanie Trong does all the hard work for you. Each week, Stephanie finds the best of the hard-to-resist steals out there.

T by Alexander Wang romper, $330 (originally $550);

Jenni Kayne button-down, $159 (originally $265);

Iosselliani ring set, $186 (originally $338);

Kenzo bag, $716 (originally $1,193);

Acne Studios skirt, $598 (originally $1,150);

The Row sunglasses, $184 (originally $374);

Why it’s a score: At this point in the season, you should either be stocking up on basics or prepping for spring. At Forward by Elyse Walker—a boutique that traffics in high-end "It" items—it’s possible to do both. Go ahead and pull the trigger on that perfect leather jacket or skirt you’ve been eying, or lighten things up with a breezy chambray shirt or sweet gingham dress. And brightly hued sunglasses? Well, they look cool no matter what time of year it is.
