If you’re not already aware via every fashion blogger on your Instagram feed, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is officially here. And, per usual, this sale does not disappoint. The whole idea of the sale is to encourage you, me, and the rest of consumerism America to purchase all your new fall pieces now before you actually really need them. And, in order to convince us to do so, they offer great discounts on said pieces. This isn’t like a normal sale, where they discount all the old sh*t—these are new pieces with limited-time prices. Of course, who’s to say you’ll still want these items when fall does finally roll around and there’s a whole new set of covetable fall arrivals? But that’s not the point.
Given how good the deals are from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, it seems like the financially responsible thing to do here is just go ahead and order these great fall pieces now, before the price shoots back up. But, fair warning, everything is going super fast… it was actually tough to even write this article considering how quickly all the sizes keep selling out. So, if you like something, don’t hesitate. See it? Like it? Want it? You got it…if you order ASAP!
1. Sanctuary City Knit Oversize Blazer
After Sale: $139
This oversize blazer, which is also available in plus sizes, is the perfect combo of cool and chic. You could totally wear it to the office with full confidence that you look super professional, then out to happy hour and still look stylish. Depending how strict your office dress code is, you could even just switch out your work blouse top underneath for a casual tank or tee. You could even wear this blazer out and about à la Hailey
Baldwin Bieber with some cut-off jean shorts and chunky dad sneakers. Simply put, this blazer can pretty much be worn all year, so there’s legit no reason not to buy it.
2. Something Navy Midi Slip Skirt
After Sale: $79
Slip midi skirts are a fall staple, and this floral one by Something Navy is a true fall wardrobe must-have. It also comes in that leopard print every single girl in New York City is wearing this summer. Whatever pattern you choose, you can easily pair this skirt with a cute graphic tee for early fall when it’s still relatively warm out, then transition it for late-fall/winter with a chunky sweater. Not to mention, this too is a piece that works for both the office and the weekend because it’s both stylish and HR-approved.
3. Rails Hunter Plaid Shirt
After Sale: $158
Okay, I already know what you’re thinking—that’s a deal for a flannel?! Hear me out, it totally is. That’s because this isn’t just a regular flannel, it’s a Rails flannel. They’re super soft, timeless, and just pretty much all around the sh*t. Plus, unlike your Forever21 flannel, this one will actually last you more than one season. I personally LOVE this navy one with the pink stripes, but they’re all cute so I would highly recommend getting at least one.
4. Good American Good Curve High Waist Straight Leg Jeans
After Sale: $185
Everyone’s fave Kardashian, Khloé, gave us 100 more reasons to call her our favorite with the creation of her denim-focused size-inclusive brand, Good American (check out the plus sizes here). And now, she gave us more reasons to like her with these incredible black high waist straight leg jeans that I NEED for fall. Everyone who has tried Good American denim raves about the fit, so if you haven’t gotten on the bandwagon yet, now’s the time to do so while you can get this pair for more than $60 off.
5. Givenchy 47mm Sunglasses
After Sale: $325
I obviously realize that not everyone is currently in the market for designer sunglasses but, if you are, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the time and place to treat yourself to a pair. They have all kinds of styles from top brands like Fendi, Dior, Tory Burch, Ray-Ban, etc. They even have less pricier styles from Rebecca Minkoff, Kate Spade, and Marc Jacobs. So, even if this gorgeous Givenchy style I’ve selected isn’t exactly the style you personally want, there are a ton more options.
6. Topshop Topstitched Crop Twill Jacket
After Sale: $80
Cropped jackets are the ideal transitional jacket from season to season. This oversize cropped one from Topshop can be just as easily worn now as it could be in a few months from now paired with a fitted turtleneck underneath. Okay, maybe not worn exactly now given we’re in the middle of a heat wave, but then again, with everywhere blasting their AC as a result, you may want to have it with you just in case. Right now it’s only $53, which is an unbeatable price for a jacket you can legit wear all year.
7. Marc Fisher LTD Unique Bootie
After Sale: $199.95
This is the perfect simple bootie that will pair with everything in your closet this fall. It actually comes in four different colors, all of which are chic and easy to pair. You obviously have to get the black pair to have as your basic staple bootie for fall and winter, but then you def need the red pair to elevate an otherwise basic outfit and make a statement. Of course, then you also have to have the dark gray pair for when you need something slightly softer than black. And then, you need the pale pink pair because they’re honestly just beautiful. You basically need all four colors, so you might as well just go all in while they’re on sale.
Like I said, if you haven’t already checked out the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, then you need to head over to their site right now before your size is sold out. Honestly, that report that’s due to your boss by end-of-day today can wait—this is important. Hopefully, they will understand. The prices go back up on August 5, so hurry hurry hurry!
