Any good shopper knows the value of outlet shopping. Sales are only for a limited time and a percentage off, whereas outlet prices have deeper discounts for even bigger deals, often on your favorite brands. I was surprised to have only recently learned of the Amazon Outlet, which sells overstock and clearance items. The Amazon Outlet is a hidden gem, truly, since it’s hard to find on the Amazon home page (my advice: bookmark the link).
Once you find it, you’ll be a fast fan and regularly check it for deals, like me. While you might be familiar with the value and convenience of Amazon in general, the Outlet could be one of the shopping site’s best-kept secrets. Included are deals on travel-ready shoes, clothing, and bags, not to mention furniture, kitchen appliances, outdoor tools, and more.
As a seasoned fashion editor and New York stylist, I am eyeing the fashion and accessory deals the overstock section has to offer this fall — deals that are made even sweeter by the impending Prime Big Deal Days sale this Tuesday, October 10, and Wednesday, October 11. From fall basics like the perfect oversized sweater to the comfortable walking shoes and roomy Adidas tote bag you’ll use just about every day, it’s a jackpot for building a stylish wardrobe. After familiarizing myself with the selection, I scoured the Outlet to find the best fashion deals for under $60. Here are my top 14 picks.
Reebok Women’s Classic Nylon Casual Shoes
I own this pair of Reebok sneakers already, but I am thinking of snagging another pair in a different shade. Why? They are undoubtedly my most comfortable pair of shoes. I wore them all over Paris on a trip in the spring, and they are my go-to for weekends in the city, running errands, and meeting friends in the park. The material is durable, and the inside is breathable, so my feet never get super sweaty. With leggings or even a cute sundress, my look frolicking around Paris, these are the perfect retro sneakers to finish your look.
With a 4.5-star rating from Amazon shoppers, these have more than 3,000 five-star reviews. One who recommended them for “walking, traveling, or [the] gym” said they’re “very lightweight and breathable” and even washed them in their washing machine “without any problems.” And Another glowing comment described their versatility, reading: “I love that I can pair these shoes with a dress or a more casual outfit. They are so cute and affordable.”
Anrabess Women’s Crewneck Oversized Pullover Sweater
Another cozy, oversized item I am eyeing is this ribbed knit sweater. This soft piece will easily layer under my puffer jacket or over a tee. It will also complement jeans, skirts, cords, leggings, or any bottom. I can dress this up with black jeans, heels, and statement earrings, or dress it down with joggers and my new clogs for an easy Sunday stroll. It’s available in 32 shades, including a block print and a fun one with a heart.
“Such good quality,” started one positive review. “It’s so warm because it’s so thick. I normally buy a large in sweaters because I like an oversized fit, but I bought a medium and it’s the perfect oversized look. The color is a beautiful white cream. And I can wear it to work because you can either wear it so it covers your butt or you can tuck it in.”
The Drop Women’s Ana Silky V-Neck Midi Slip Dress
Nineties fashion is popular this season, and a slip dress is the easiest way to get in on the trend. Layering this over a fitted tee will drive home the look — just layer a cardigan or blazer on top to make it autumn-ready. Silky and lightweight, this midi-length slip dress will skim your body for a flattering look. The fabric has a hint of stretch to keep it comfortable and flexible. Other outfit ideas: wear it alone with a leather jacket for a night out or wear a ribbed turtleneck underneath for a work-appropriate look when the chilly weather sets in.
One happy Amazon customer shared, “My only regret is that I didn’t buy two of them in different colors while they were on sale! Will have to bookmark this end and wait until the next Prime Day.” Fortunately for this shopper, Prime Big Deal Days is just around the corner on October 10 and 11.
Koolaburra by Ugg Women’s Fuzz’n Ii Slipper
As we enter the cold season, taking stock of your slipper situation is a good idea. I like to have a pair that stays inside my apartment and one I can wear to the laundry room or, for homeowners, to the mailbox or garage. This faux-fur slipper is highly rated because of its comfort and cute look. Another awesome feature is the elastic back strap that keeps these secure to your foot. A rubber bottom with ribbing will help support you on tile or slippery floors. You’ll be thankful in mid-January, when it’s super cold outside, that you have this pair on hand.
With a 4.5-star rating, this cozy slipper has one repeat customer commenting, “Love these; they’re my second pair, and I even bought my mom a matching pair. They’re so comfy for every day around the house or to be cute in public — I’m just obsessed.”
Amazon Essentials Women’s Active Sculpt High-Rise Full-Length Legging
As someone who is active and knows a lot about workout gear, I own many pairs of black leggings. I recently moved and donated the majority of them since they had become faded, ratty, and, in general, not supportive. Thankfully, I found affordable leggings that can replace some of the ones I ditched because I believe you don’t need to spend lots of money on a supportive pair. These feature a moisture-wicking finish that is smooth and will keep you comfortable and looking amazing while breaking a sweat. While I tend to always stick with black (hey, that’s the New Yorker in me), there are other shades available for those of you who love color.
Soft and buttery are two superlative adjectives used in the title of one five-star review. “The color is gorgeous and these feel so smooth and are not thinly see-through. I want them in the other colors.” It’s available in sizes XS to 6X.
Adidas Unisex Everyday Tote Bag
Spacious totes — we travelers can never have too many. What draws me to this style from Adidas is the versatility. Yes, this will take me to all my fall workouts and is roomy enough to fit clothes for post-shower with a shoe change, but it’s also super sleek with a polished look. It is completely office-appropriate, and the size is also large enough to fit my laptop, which is a major score. Trust me, this will be your new go-to tote.
For anyone looking for a new travel bag, this happy customer’s comment will be all you need to read. “I love everything about it. It’s light but it doesn’t feel like it’s going to break. Easy enough to carry water, snacks, and a few things I need for work, and then move everything back to my purse when I need it.” They went on to say, “I love the color and the feel of the material. The size is also right.”
Jessica Simpson Women’s Pixie Light Wash Denim Jacket
Every fall wardrobe needs a jean jacket for those chilly nights and crisp mornings, and this one is a steal at 62 percent off. The classic fit makes this a super versatile piece to pair with just about any outfit you can dream up — wear it over a plain white T-shirt or throw it over a dress for a timeless look that you’ll reach for again and again, whether you’re sporting it at the airport or at a winery with friends.
With more than 1,800 five-star ratings, it’s clear that Amazon shoppers love this jacket. One enamored shopper said, “Perfect stretch material, perfect cut, perfect color, and perfect for every occasion. I took it on my last trip and I wore it to get mani-pedis, to the Farmers’ Market, and out to dinner…perfect as is.”
Zattcas Women’s Casual Boho Flowy Maxi Dress
Flowy dresses continue to be on trend. Not only are they easy to wear and style, but they also make it seamless to pull off the boho autumn look, whether pumpkin picking or at a brewery with friends. This dress also features an easy fit with an elastic waistband and short sleeves for a bit more coverage to help with the chilly temps. Layer on a denim jacket, chunky cardigan, or scarf to make this completely fall-proof. The dress is offered in sizes from extra small to double XL and in 20 shades.
One buyer was so happy with her purchase that she became a repeat buyer. “Love this dress so much, I ordered 2 more in different patterns. It fits just as expected, easy to keep, and ridiculously comfortable!! Dress up or keep it casual. It’s a great almost all occasion dress to have in your closet.”
White Mountain Women’s Bari Clog
When it’s time to store my sandals away, I am always in search of a new clog to slip my feet into. A pair that looks good with cozy socks, ankle or calf length, that makes running errands or going to a yoga class easy breezy. With a leather upper and a contoured footbed, this is not only a convenient shoe option but also one that’s comfortable and supportive. It also has a shearling lining to keep toes and feet super cushy and warm in dropping temps.
One fan left this comment, “I’ll be honest; this is the fifth pair of mules I’ve tried, and I’m keeping them.” They continued to rave, “Very nice and supportive, very well made, stitching is professional quality not like a couple of the others I tried before these where it was visibly uneven!”
ReachMe Women’s Oversized Off-the-Shoulder Pullover Sweater
While it’s time to bundle and add more layers, not every outfit needs to cover you from head to toe. For those who still want to show some skin, this long-sleeved waffle knit top has an oversized fit to sit off the shoulder. The top is crafted in a lightweight, stretch fabric that is soft to drape beautifully on your body. The waffle texture feels ultra-fall, as do some of the 23 color shades this pullover sweater comes in.
The versatility of this piece was highlighted in one positive review: “You can dress this up or down; [it’s] a classic white long-sleeve staple piece that matches with everything, it’s soft, and [it] stays the same size even after being washed. In love.
Lee Women’s Instantly Slims Classic Relaxed Fit Monroe Straight Leg Jean
You can never have too many pairs of flattering jeans — that is my motto. This style is straight and on-trend and features slimming features, like a stretch blend fabric, ideal waist placement, and a hidden slimming tummy panel. With cozy sweaters, button-down shirts, or silky tops for a night out, these will soon be on heavy rotation throughout your wardrobe. Not to mention your most comfortable pair for fall adventures or travel.
One rave review said, “They are comfortable. They are flattering. They are well made. The fabric is good. They cool faded-out jeans and do a pretty good job. I love them.”
Travelon Women’s Anti-Theft Convertible Crossbody Clutch
Anyone with an upcoming vacation in need of a perfect travel-friendly bag should check out this convertible crossbody option. Equipped with anti-theft features like a locking compartment and slash-resistant materials and strap, this purse is roomy enough to hold your wallet, sunglasses, and more. It also contains an RFID-blocking protective passport compartment and inner zipper compartments that help keep essentials organized and protected on the go. Plus, it’s available in four neutral color shades to match any of your travel looks.
“I’m really happy I made this purchase,” explained a happy Amazon reviewer who purchased it for their travels. “It holds exactly what I need it to — phone, wallet, sunglasses, chapstick, etc., while still being small and compact.” They continued to say “I felt additional peace of mind with the zipper security features — and found myself using it often when we got back from the trip as well! It’s simple, no fuss, but nice enough that you could use it with just about any outfit.”
Amazon Essentials Women’s Slim-Fit Camisole, Pack of 4
Be honest: when was the last time you upgraded your old camisoles? The one you wear under everything? Wardrobe basics are one of the top items I am always searching for when outlet shopping, and this pack of four camisoles is a deal that will certainly help me refresh the options currently in my drawer that have become too worn out. Come fall and winter, I love to wear a fitted tank under chambray shirts and sweaters. The sets are offered in a variety of shades for you to find the colors that suit your wardrobe.
One five-star comment reads, “When I’m on the hunt for tank tops, one of the qualities I’m always looking for is fabric quality/coverage. After many washes, these tank tops have not thinned, and have maintained their comfort.”
Puma Women’s 6-Pack Runner Socks
As stated above, a great way to take advantage of the Amazon Outlet is to search for those essential items, like socks. It’s not just athletes and fitness fanatics who always need comfortable socks to support their feet. Travelers, too, can go through a lot of socks after all those long walking tours and active adventures. This pair has proven to be one that will support you through any activity. The ankle-length even means you can wear these with non-athletic sneakers or a bootie.
“The only socks you need,” exclaimed one happy customer. “I absolutely love these socks! I hope they never stop making them, because it’s the only sock I wear…what I love about these is that they’re thin enough to wear with really any shoe. They look sleek and cute. Puma socks forever.”
