At most brands, “sample sales” mean sprawling lines without nearly enough samples to go around. So let me go ahead and start off by saying that Universal Standard isn’t most brands, and its annual sample sale runs a little differently. (And when I say that I mean, it’s better). It’s entirely online—saving you from any IRL mayhem—and it has hundreds of closet staples in stock,
all in inclusive sizes. I call that a win-win, baby.
The expansive brand carries sizes 00 to 40 in Every. Freakin’. Style. I’m talkin’ vegan leather slip dresses, straight-leg jeans, classic trench jackets, and so much more. Even if you already own similar basics, you’ll want Universal Standard’s takes on the traditional, basic pieces. Each apparel item includes thoughtful details like hidden buttons and subtle stretch fabric for the perfect fit, which is one of the reasons why the store stands out so much.
Keep in mind though that the campaign only runs until August 2! To give you a head start (and to make shopping the sale a lil more seamless for ya), we narrowed down the size-inclusive essentials that deserve your instant “add to cart.”
