Just in time to revive your summer wardrobe, Rent the Runway is hosting a huge online clearance sale to clear out some of their inventory. With designer frocks up to 75 percent off their retail price, the deals offer decent discounts off big name labels. Granted, nothing will be in mint condition: the apparel and accessories for sale will have been rented and “gently worn” by Rent the Runway’s clients. But if you’re looking for something cute and stylish to carry you through the rest of the season, here’s 15 of our fave deals under $100.

The sale is live now through August 28—or whenever they run out of stock. Before you begin your shopping frenzy, note that everything in Rent the Runway’s clearance sale is final sale, meaning they cannot be exchanged or returned.

Happy shopping!
