Trendy and classic jeans. Work-ready pieces. Faux leather items that feel and look like the real thing. Party pieces that get second looks for all the right reasons. Layering pieces and jewel tones galore. These are just a few of the reasons why I shop at Express!

They’ve been working very hard the last couple of years to recover their quality and style. Not only have they accomplished this goal; they’ve become one of my go-to stores! My wishlist for Express is incredibly long right now but it’s about to get a bit shorter. It’s time to share all the pieces you need during the October 2018 Express 40% off online only promo. A promo which, coincidentally, ends tonight!

Prepare to add to cart…as I go through my wishlist we’ll talk about why Express is among my top retailers right now.

EXPRESS DOES COLORS LIKE NO ONE ELSE.

So few clothing retailers are doing rich and bold colors right now. I have no idea why that is, but it makes me ever more grateful for Express! They tend to offer lots of colors in unexpected and delightful ways.

Many stores might offer a faux leather jacket in black, brown and maybe red. Express offers a fantastic faux leather moto jacket in five colors and a notch-collar moto jacket in 14 colors! During this sale both jackets are under $100. I’ve seen many of these colors in person and they’re downright droolworthy.

Is it too much for one person to own a moto jacket in 4 colors? Asking for a friend.

It’s not just the faux leather stuff that comes in great colors either. Express’s sweaters are full of great color combinations! So many great striped pieces in yellow and black, or blues, reds and blacks working together. During this promotion I took the plunge on several including the Striped Shirttail Hem Sweater (now $36), the Striped Bateau Neck Fitted Sweater (now $30), the Off The Shoulder Wedge Tunic Sweater (now $36) and two colorways of the Striped Ribbed Bateau Neck Sweater (now $30). The cropped sweaters will look great over high-waisted skirts while the longer sweaters will do well over jeans or pants.

All of Express’s items run through seamless color palettes that make building tone-on-tone outfits easy. Here are two super cute examples I just saw in-store: 1 | 2.

Right now they’re big on greens, mauve, teals and reds, with pops of yellow and pink. This is in addition to the normal neutrals like white, black, navy and grey. You’ll see plenty of color throughout this post and in the shoppable boutiques at the bottom.

EXPRESS HAS A GOOD PULSE ON TRENDS.

I don’t mind spending more on classic items, but when it comes to trendy pieces I tend to look for less expensive options. The October 2018 Express 40% off online only promo includes tons of pieces that are right on-trend yet won’t break the bank.

Leopard is back! Big time. I’m seeing it everywhere but my closet already has the one or two leopard staples I need. If I want any more leopard pieces they will likely come from Express. The High Waisted Leopard Ankle Dress Pant (now $48) seen above are one great example of Express’s take on the trend.

Express has tons of leopard items. If I didn’t already own a leopard coat I’d be buying this one. Unsure about leopard? Dip your toes in with a belt or pair of boots. You also can’t go wrong with a cute leopard bag.

Beyond leopard, Express carries trendy well in its denim department. Things like camo and ripped jeans seem almost standard now. Express goes beyond those touch points into super of-the-moment items like the High Waisted Split Hem Denim Perfect Ankle Leggings (now $53) or the High Waisted Side Stripe Denim Perfect Ankle Leggings (now $53). I also see great takes on trends like the High Waisted Raw Hem Perfect Curves Ankle Leggings (now $53) and the High Waisted Two-Tone Stretch Ankle Jean Leggings (now $48). The two-tone jeans made it into my order!

    I agree, Express is great right now. I love their Gramercy tops. Fit amazing. Can be worn to work or out at night. I've been wearing their Editor pants since college. Will be taking a look at the sweaters you recommend.

      Yes the Gramercy tops are great! I love the more satiny versions that come in lots of jewel tones. They're 2 for $50 now!

    So mad I missed this! Love your picks Roxy, I noticed they have the beautiful coat you bought last winter in more colors this year. Do you think they’ll do this promotion again? Would love to pick up some items for myself and for gifts.

      Oh man Guest you reminded me — I meant to mention about my coat in this post!! Oh well, will have to do that in another post instead.

      Here's the coat for anyone interested: http://bit.ly/2O0RAW7
      And here it is on me: https://effortlesslywithroxy.com/2018/04/ootd-a-w
      I also love how Express styled it on Karlie Kloss: https://www.instagram.com/p/BoUOVMMB2Be/?taken-by

      And yes I'm sure they'll do this promotion again before Christmas, and probably before Thanksgiving. Right now Express seems to be running the promo about once every 3 weeks as holiday shopping season ramps up. It may be online only again — in which case I usually go to the store first and try on as much as I can for sizing. The sizing runs pretty consistent at Express.
