It's officially Fourth of July weekend, and I'm sure you've got your sights set on BBQs, fireworks, and pool parties. Now, I wouldn't blame you if those were the only things on your mind, but the holiday weekend also brings another kind of fun: some great shopping. This weekend and through the Fourth, retailers are having some amazing deals on summer fashion, and it would be a shame if you missed out. Luckily for you, I'm a shopping-obsessed writer who never passes up the chance to shop a good sale, even if it means perusing during my family's holiday BBQ. 

Three sales you absolutely cannot skip out on: J.Crew, Madewell, and Abercrombie. These retailers boast chic and elevated pieces all at an affordable price, which is why you can catch me wearing them on a near-daily basis. With their Fourth of July sales, these pieces are even more affordable and I, for one, am excited. So excited, in fact, that I scrolled through over 4,000 items on the three sites to fill up my shopping carts. I currently have my eye on new breezy linen pants, trendy sandals, and so, so many summer dresses

If you've been wanting to add some fresh pieces to your warm-weather wardrobe, now's the time. Keep scrolling to see which J.Crew, Madewell, and Abercrombie sale items are in my cart right now and how to shop the sale for yourself. Act fast, though—pieces were selling out as I wrote this story.

J.Crew is the retailer to shop if you're in need of chic, luxurious-looking pieces. From now until July 5, get an extra 60 percent off all sale styles, plus 50 percent off summer must-haves with promo code FOURTH.
