Just a few weeks ago, we learned about Kate Spade's plans to shut down Kate Spade Saturday, its lower-priced line. With the closure approaching this summer, the brand is already starting to move its merchandise—fast. The good news is, Kate Spade Saturday is having a major sale—40 percent off everything on the site (including sale!) with code "EXTRA40." The bad news? This is one of the last times you'll have the opportunity to shop the preppy-chic collection. We don't have to tell you twice to start hoarding these colorful dresses, accessories and more—but in case you need some help choosing, we've rounded up our favorites, below!
1. Panel Long Sleeve Tee, originally
$60 $42; now $25.20
Obviously, we're starting with the sale section! This cotton-and-wool blend tee features a cropped, boxy fit—a silhouette that is trending right now. We'd wear it with skinny high-waist jeans when the weather's still cold, and pair it with a cute floral skirt when the sun comes out.
2. Contrast Short Boots, originally
$230 $161; now $96.60
If there's one item every collegiette should have in her wardrobe, it's a good pair of ankle booties; and at under $100, these ones are a must. We love the classic shape of this pair, which makes them so versatile! You could wear them to your internship, on a first date, out to brunch with your BFFs, around campus... you get the idea.
3. Reversible Call Me Dress, originally $120; now $72
We will always, always be okay with a piece that does double duty—and this two-in-one dress does just that. The fact that you get two whole outfits in ONE garment (as in, you can literally get out of bed, slide into a single item and look totally polished) is just the cherry on top.
4. Freeform Bucket Crossbody Bag, originally $130; now $78
The bucket bag is the style you'll find on every fashion editor's arm, so take this opportunity to get ahead of the trend game and score yourself one of these of-the-moment accessories for less! There are four colors to choose from... and yes, we're having a hard time deciding which shade is our favorite, too.
5. iPhone 5 Case, originally $25; now $15
This is our weekend mantra. (Hey, if pink can have a day, why can't yellow?)
6. Initial Crewneck Sweatshirt, originally $95; now $57
If we're going to honest with ourselves, our sweatshirts probably get more wear than anything else in our closets, so when you find one cute enough to wear in public, you just don't let that opportunity go. The graphic, bold-yet-simple look of this piece fits right into the athleisure trend that has taken the fashion world by storm lately. Pick up one in your own initial—and grab a few for your besties and sorority sisters, too!
7. XXXXXXO Necklace, originally $40; now $24
A twist on your classic gold bar necklace, this delicate piece offers unique detail with a sweet meaning. Since we're far beyond the days of those "love" necklaces we may or may not have worn in middle school, this updated take makes for the perfect everyday piece.
Which of these steals will you be snapping up ASAP, collegiettes?
