Oooooh! The Saks Friends and Family Event includes so many of our favorite splurge-worthy brands — the ones that make long-lasting investment pieces. Yup, we’re talking about MOTHER Denim, rag & bone, FRAME and more team favs for 25% off during the event (now through 10/4).
The Best Jeans, Sweaters & More Editor Picks In The Saks Friends & Family Sale
After perusing this sale in depth…the team agrees that the major winner here is denim. Saks’ denim sale section is full of both our long-time favorites (Mother Tomcat jeans, Re/Done 90’s straight legs) AND a few new, exciting finds (like Frame’s Bardot flares or Re/Done’s 70’s high-rise jeans). Denim is easily the first place I’d start.
Additionally, I also highly recommend checking out Saks’ selection of coats on sale. There’s everything from Sam puffer coats (I like this one) and Norma Kamali’s sleeping bag coat…to a classic wool topper (this wool plaid coat is my personal fav).
Looking for something under $100? I’m obsessed with the vibes (vaguely Alice in Wonderland?) of this sports bra & matching leggings…and this edgy gold Alexis Bittar necklace is great for everyday. Meredith pointed out that R+Co hair products are also on sale, and she & I both swear by this styling mousse.
Keep scrolling for our team favs and top picks, now on sale at Saks.

A Few More Of My Top Sale Picks From Saks…
I love my L’Agence Janelle denim jacket so much that I cannot overstate: It’s one of the best buys I’ve EVER made. This jacket is literally as soft and as comfortable as a cardigan, yet looks tailored, like a jacket. It’s so freaking good that after wearing mine…my Mother splurged on her own (and she hates spending over $100 on anything, much less the crazy price of this jacket full-price). While my exact wash isn’t on sale, Saks does have both a similar light wash and a medium-blue wash on sale. Even at 25% off, these denim jackets are pricy…but they’re so darn useful that the cost-per-wear for both Mom & I have made them a solid buy. I’ve literally been wearing this one since 2019, with no sign of slowing down.

So many absolutely beautiful pieces in this sale, but I’ve got to give the win to the denim.
LEFT: I try HARD not to twin with Shana, but these stretchy comfy leg-lengthening magic jeans could not be resisted. The sweater (also comes in black) was my surprise find — deliciously long sleeves, uber-soft, and a relaxed but stylish shape.
Laura’s Saks Sale Picks
LEFT: My MOTHER Tomcat jeans have been my favs for wearing with boots since last October. I adore them with my Docs and my beloved cozy clog boots. They are just perfection with taller chunkier boots. They run a little small in the waist to me, so you might size up if you have a straighter middle or are between sizes. The wash is perfection, too! Wearing size 28.
RIGHT: This Rebecca Minkoff Megan tote seems simple, but it’s the one I grab so so often for a pretty light shade that mixes so well with everything. It’s the perfect size to hold just what I need (I think ‘mini’ in the name is deceiving honestly) and great for travel to pop in your suitcase.
Scotti’s Saks Sale Picks
LEFT: AG Ex-Boyfriend Jeans – Are you guys sick of me sharing these yet? Cause I’m not sick of wearing them! They’re my go-to jeans when I don’t want a high rise…they give that slouchy vibe without adding extra weight like some boyfriend jeans can. There are a bunch of washes that are part of the sale, too! (This one is my favorite.)
RIGHT: MOTHER Insider High-Rise Cropped Step-Hem Jeans – I love these jeans so much I have two different washes–but I really love this distressed version (especially that hemline!). They’re about the only cropped jeans that work for my 5’4” frame without having to cut them–and that black pair looks awesome, too (super versatile)!

Julieta’s Saks Sale Picks
My dreamy and most special Farm Rio dress is finally on sale, and it’s a dress I’ll have in my closet for years and feel amazing every time I wear it. If you’re tall don’t worry, I had to get it altered for my short frame. Btw, check all the Farm Rio pieces. Some on sale, some will give you triple points like this sweater or this cardigan. Stunning!
Meredith’s Saks Sale Picks
LEFT: MOTHER Denim Tomcats remain my go-to jean. They have that broken-in, worn feeling while holding their shape. TTS (I’m wearing a 30).
RIGHT: This R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste was the first thing I bought when I chopped my hair. Not only does it clean your hair without leaving residue, it provides volume. Even my husband now uses it!
Em’s Saks Sale Picks
Haven’t seen enough denim in this sale yet? Such a great time to be choosy about the jeans you buy on sale (rather than buying that *one* wash that’s close enough to what you want because it’s the one on discount). A perfect example?
My go-to rag & bone Dre Slim Boyfriend jeans are included in the sale, in a variety of washes (see them all by searching “dre slim boyfriend” from the main sale page). These are probably the closest to what I’m wearing, but I’ve got my heart set on this lighter, distressed wash that feels deliciously secondhand. I wear mine TTS for a hip slung slouch; sidze down if you want them closer fit.
