It's mid-August, which means late summer (and pre-fall) sales are in full swing. With so much selection, it's the perfect opportunity to add more homegrown brands to the closet and support Canadian retailers.
Products are chosen based on price, quality, practicality and availability in Canada. As with most sale items, there's limited stock and sizing.
Note: All items are subject to price fluctuations and availability.
Megan Markle might not model for them anymore, but don't sleep on Reitmans solid office and work-from-home looks. They have layer-ready pieces like this sleeveless sweater with a side tie (limited sizes, $12.99), a striped crewneck sweater ($12.99) and a poplin tunic ($41.17). Available Reitmans.
