26 Best Labor Day Clothing Sales & Deals in 2021: Madewell, Backcountry, Bandier, Nike, Everlane

Summer is on its way out, and to celebrate—or mourn—the conclusion of another sweltering season, we’re perusing all of the sweetest Labor Day sales. And by perusing, we mean “spending all of our money.” Now is the time when brands clear out their summer inventory in exchange for the cold-weather clothes we’re not quite ready to talk about yet. In scrolling through the discounts, you’ll find plenty of tanks, shorts, and swimwear, but also a swath of sweaters and jeans that will make excellent additions to your autumn wardrobe.

This Labor Day Weekend brings a truly overwhelming amount of sales, but fear not: We’ve saved you the trouble of endless Google searches by rounding up the best Labor Day clothing sales right here. Whether you’re looking to round out your activewear drawer (hello, Bandier and Nike) or add a pop of color to your collection of dresses (we see you, Reformation and Madewell), there is almost certainly a retailer for everything on your list. And if you’re still itching to spend after browsing our clothing picks, check out the deals on mattresses, outdoor products from REI, and everything else, from sex toys to meal kits.
