If you're as shopping-obsessed as we are here at MC, then I'm willing to bet you know what time it is. Yes, I'm referring to the legendary Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Ever since the sale was available to preview, we've been preparing our carts (and our budgets) for epic deals, and it's finally here. From now until August 6, you can find major discounts on brand-new arrivals and closet staples. In the fashion community, it's basically the sale to end all sales and we're, of course, shopping it.
During my scroll of the thousands of discounted items, I couldn't help but notice an overlying theme: fall fashion. We may be in the throes of summer, but according to Nordstrom's massive sale, now's the time to prepare for the upcoming season. Ahead, I've rounded up the best fall pieces, arranged by shopping category for your convenience, to add to your cart ASAP. From cozy sweaters, quality basics, chic fall boots, and versatile accessories, these deals are too good to pass up. And trust me, you don't want to wait—pieces are selling out by the minute!
A big, cozy sweater is practically what I live in during the fall, so you can bet I will be adding this Free People tunic to my collection. When you want to be comfy and chic, throw this longer tunic over a pair of leggings and you're good to go.
Trust me when I say you will be needing a cardigan come fall. It's a hero transitional piece in your cold weather wardrobe. Throw it on with a dress for warmer days, keep it at your office, or wear it all buttoned up when the weather gets cold.
The neckline and puff sleeves add a romantic touch to this already adorable dress. It's the perfect throw-on-and-go dres for when you're feeling too lazy to style an entire look. Did I mention it also has pockets?
In case you didn't know, Good American bodysuits are crazy good. They're stretchy, double-lined, smoothing, and downright comfy. You'll turn to this piece time and time again for layering or for a flattering, simple top.
Yet another sweater to add to your fall wardrobe is this brand-new Halogen pick. Choose from neutral shades like black, cream, and camel, or opt for a little more color with a jewel-toned grape. Whichever color you choose, consider this a staple in your workwear attire.
If you don't have a great denim jacket yet, your closet is not fully complete for fall. Consider this Levi's pick for its oversized fit and vintage feel. When this weather switches to that awkward in-between season, you'll be glad you picked this jacket up.
Don't confuse blazers as just workwear. No matter whether you work from home or head to the office every day, a classic black blazer is a must-have. Throw it on (literally) any outfit for instant polish. Reviews say this Topshop pick especially fits well on taller frames.
Levi's Ribcage jeans are an editor favorite for a reason. The ultra-high-waist fit is crazy flattering on everyone, they make your behind look so good, and they end at the perfect length to show off your cute shoes. Grab this ripped pair quickly before they inevitably sell out.
If you're in need of a new pair of gym leggings, now's the time to score a great pair for cheap. With over 7,000 reviews and an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, Nordstrom shoppers are obsessed with these leggings thanks to their comfort, quality, and flattering fit. Some even say these hold up just as well as higher-end brands.
Allow me to introduce you to your new favorite work pants. This classic style will make your workwear effortlessly polished, but they are also easy to dress down for more casual looks. Just throw on a graphic tee and a pair of cool sneakers and call it a day.
Every fashion girl needs a good pair of non-athletic black leggings in their closet. Period. This pair from Vince Camuto is non-fading, non-piling, stretchy, and made from a thick, quality material. Wear them with sweaters, blazers, and even the jean jacket above.
My jaw dropped when I saw this skirt and its price tag of under $100. I immediately added it to my cart and have already planned at least a dozen different ways to style it. Come fall, I will be pairing this chic skirt with graphic tees, sweaters, ankle boots, and heels to wear for any occasion.
It seems everyone and their mother is embracing the tenniscore look and I, for one, am here for it. I love how this dress would look just as chic on the courts as it does off. Plan to wear this pick to your morning workout, to run errands, or to happy hour.
Another fall-ready dress worth adding to your cart is this sweet style from Chelsea28. The puffy, billowing sleeves on this dress are so chic, plus it's the perfect midi length to show off a pair of knee-high boots, just like in the photo.
Sometimes simple is the way to go, as is the case with this dress. It features an A-line silhouette with a surplice neckline that flatters every single body type. Guaranteed. I'm personally obsessed with this rust shade, but if you're more into darker colors, this dress also comes in classic navy.
Sweater dresses are peak fall dressing, not to mention this wine-red shade is a quintessential fall color. Just like the name suggests, this dress is so soft and hugs your figure like a dream. Pick this one up if you're a fan of easy, chic outfits.
Knee-high boots have been the leading fall footwear these last few years, and something tells me they aren't going anywhere for fall 2023. At over $100 off, these boots have the kind of quality that could go for double the price. Consider these a major steal.
Whether you love them or hate them, the divisive Birkenstock sandal isn't going anywhere, so why not try them out on sale? The big, shiny buckles on these make them a bit more unique than other pairs you've seen, and from my own experience, you can walk miles in them without any discomfort.
