Calling all shopaholics—the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends this Sunday, August 6! With so many selections at such great prices, you’ll be kicking yourself for not adding anything to your shopping cart. There’s no better excuse than a sale to stock up on clothing and accessories for the upcoming season, and Nordstrom’s new fall products go back to full price once the sale ends. Essentially, you’re never going to find such hot-ticket items at prices this low. To help make your sale shopping easier, we rounded up 10 Nordstrom items you absolutely have to get before this notorious sale comes to a close. Did we mention these are must-haves!?
As a proud jacket hoarder, I’ve found that buying new jackets right before fall is the optimal time. Jacket shopping in late July or August puts you one step ahead of the crowd and gives you the best selections. Once cold weather actually hits, prices rise and selections drop as everyone and their mother wants a chic way to bundle up. Fall naturally calls for cozy open-front coats and moto jackets, so grab ’em while they’re hot!
Dresses and Jumpsuits:
Use this sale to amp up your workwear style and formal outfit game. Every woman needs a killer jumpsuit in her wardrobe repertoire. Spice things up with a fiery red hue and perfect your power stance because you’re destined to look fierce AF in this little number, which also comes in petite sizes. Black jumpsuits are so overdone, anyway. As for dresses, you can never go wrong with rocking a simple 3/4 sleeve shift for anything from long office days to holiday parties. Most dresses in the sale can easily transition from day to night, so why settle for just one?
Having cute workout gear might be the key to finally having motivation to hit the gym (maybe). Even if you’re not a gym junkie, it’s totally worth it to stock up on comfy leggings and tanks for lounging at home or running errands. Have some fun with your leggings and opt for a textured pair in a popular fall color to stand out from your current all-black legging collection. We also love this light Nike tank for sweaty workouts…or for Friday nights watching movies on the couch with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Pair these together and you’ve instantly got a brand new athleisure outfit that at least makes it look like you just went for a run.
Treat yourself to some not-so-basic tops that you can mix and match with all season long. Nordstrom’s current tanks and tees have a dash of uniqueness to set them apart from your usual everyday basics. The scallop detailing on this tank makes it the ideal layering piece. If you toss a coat or blazer over top, the feminine hem still peeks through and stands out. We also found this top that puts your other tees to shame by blending comfort and style. The sweatshirt-like material means you’ll never want to take if off, and the ruffled mesh on the side provides a trendy look you can’t find elsewhere.
Let’s not forget about these! Handbags and jewelry and shoes—oh my! The Nordstrom sale truly has it all in the accessories department. We’re loving this Rebecca Minkoff shoulder bag that’s currently at a once in a lifetime price. You also definitely need a versatile and comfortable pair of booties this fall, so take your pick from one of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale’s many footwear selections. From suede ankle boots to designer leather pumps, this sale has everything under the sun.
