Summer can be one of the most difficult months to dress for. After all, when it's hot and humid outside, you may be more focused on cool comfort than on style, eschewing accessories and excess fabric in favor of easy, breezy pieces that don't make a steamy situation worse. However, summer fashion can still be both comfortable and elegant, and few brands demonstrate this quite like & Other Stories. Their pieces are designed in Paris, Stockholm, and Los Angeles, and are therefore diverse enough to be worn by a variety of people with a variety of tastes. And now, you can nab dozens of their most coveted pieces for up to 40 percent off with their blowout sale. 

The sale, which runs until July 2, includes items from all of the brand's categories, including apparel, shoes, accessories, swimwear, and more. And, because my summer wardrobe is in desperate need of a refresh, I've searched the site's sale items with a fine-toothed comb, looking for the best deals on the chicest, most versatile picks. Below, my favorites.
