I come bearing some not-so-great news: the British luxury online fashion retailer, Matches, is closing down, and soon. The site has been a go-to for fashion editors ever since it launched in 2007—and we have big feelings about it shuttering. The only upside is that the site is currently having a massive sale.

In an ode to our favorite retailer, Marie Claire’s editors have parsed through the massive selection and picked out our favorite discounted luxury pieces to shop while you still can. Right now, Matches is offering an extra 20 percent off nearly 5,500 pieces in its outlet section. There’s a minimum spend of $250, the discount is only available on items with the EXTRA 20% OFF button (read: most of them) and items purchased on sale are not eligible for returns or exchanges.

Our editors’ hand-picked pieces run the gamut from a bag brand carried by none other than Taylor Swift to the best sweaters and ‘90s-inspired denim from Matches’ cult-favorite in-house line, Raey. I even found some sleek white strappy sandals on sale in there, too. 

Whatever has made Matches a shopping destination for you, there’s a high chance it’s included in the sale. There are, of course, a few pieces that touch on spring’s biggest trends and others that are perfectly classic, like a designer bag from Jil Sander that you can snag for a whopping 70 percent off. 

Keep scrolling to shop all of our picks and to read a little more about why we adore them so much. Some are tried-and-true favorites and others are items that have lived rent-free in our shopping-minded brains for weeks now. Either way, this may be your last time to find them before Matches closes for good.
