Unlike Black Friday, which always falls the day after Thanksgiving, Amazon keeps us guessing as to when, exactly, we’ll be able to snag the best Amazon Prime Day deals. But at last, the day(s) have arrived, and over here at Vogue, our team is as eager to grab some summertime steals.
This year, most of my colleagues have their eyes set on items that will help improve their health and homes, like aromatic humidifiers and multi-tasking air fryers. Naturally, traveling once again is also top of mind. That’s why we’re also taking advantage of the offerings on luxe luggage sets to help you stylishly pack all of those summer outfits. Speaking of clothes, of course, we’ve also unearthed some treasures in the fashion department, from a tennis skirt that’s cute enough to be worn just about anywhere and a retro graphic tee.
All these and more of the best Amazon Prime Day deals taking place this year. See below to take a peek at our carts.

An air fryer has been at the top of my list for a very very long time. So seeing this multi-tasking one marked down literally made my day. I’m also in the process of re-organizing my closet and these velvet hangers are exactly what I need to make everything look chic.

I have my eye on JW Pei’s shoulder bags this Prime Day to tote around all summer. They are the perfect size for all of my core essentials for day or night. Plus, EmRata makes a strong case for it as the ultimate it-bag. The best news? They are all under $100.
Rickie De Sole, Executive Fashion Director
I could not be more excited to start traveling again. I have been needing a new luggage set but held off given the travel restrictions over the last year and a half. I prioritize durability, space and easy rolling wheels when buying luggage so this will do the trick!
Lilah Ramzi, Features and Shopping Editor
For years, I’ve been intimidated by the espresso machine—and their price tags! I don’t know, for certain, if having an espresso machine on my kitchen counter will transform me into an at-home doppio maker but I’m considering Gevi’s 15 Bar espresso maker (and milk frother!) as part of my starter kit.
Helena Suric, Senior Director of Talent Casting
I have been thinking about doing 23andMe for eons, and finally I’m ordering the kit. Am I better suited to running short or long distance? Do I like cilantro? Do I sneeze when I look at bright lights? You’d think I know, but I’d love to see what my genes say!
Chioma Nnadi, Editor, Vogue.com
I’m in the process of switching out all my hair products to plant-based solutions—anything with synergetic fragrances is out! I’ve found it can be quite challenging to find products that are naturally scented, but thankfully La Tierra Sagrada fits the bill. My hair is a sponge for extra moisturizing conditioners so their hair masque is a good match for me, plus it contains Pali Santo which I think smells divine.
Willow Lindley, Accessories Director
I got this as a gift for my dad for Christmas and I’ve been very jealous of his herb selfies (this thing grows like crazy!) so now I’ve decided to invest in one for myself. No more animals eating my herb garden now that I can grow them indoors all year long.
Ciarra Lorren Zatorski, Assistant Market Editor
Just a few days into my new apartment means I’m in full blown home mode! And with an unreasonable amount of tabs open and shopping carts filled with little gadgets, the Levoit humidifier is on the top of my list for APD!
Clarissa Schmidt, Commerce Producer
Last year during the peak of the pandemic, I desperately looked to yoga as a coping mechanism to deal with all of my stress and anxiety—I’ve been thankfully doing it every day since! As I continue to grow my practice, I’m looking forward to tossing my shabby yoga mat out in exchange for Gaiam’s non-slip version (which also features a beautiful print), and to slip on their performance gloves so I can hold my favorite poses longer.
Rachel Besser, Market Editor
I have taken up tennis again recently, and have had my eye on a few solid white tennis skirts that are just as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional.
Akili King, Beauty Assistant
I’m a sucker for vintage… and Prince! I feel like this could be such a fun graphic tee to rock in the summer and just a really cool overall collector’s item. It could also make a great gift for the Prince lovers in your life.
