Nordstrom is one of the most popular department stores in the country, serving as a one-stop shop for high-end fashion, beauty, wellness, and even home items, from affordable finds to designer picks. And while it's one of my go-to stores all year round, I linger especially long on their site during Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale, during which hundreds of their most popular items have their prices slashed like never before.
But the sheer number of items on sale can make shopping overwhelming, so I've sifted through each category of Nordstrom's site to find the absolute best picks in the sale. Hurry, though—these items are known to sell out quickly, and the sale only runs from July 17 through August 6.
Best Fashion Items in Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale
This cropped faux leather jacket promises to lend an element of edge to any fall outfit, and I love its unique deep purple colorway.
Just because blazers are seen as business attire, doesn't mean they need to be boring. While this option features a classic professional cut, it incorporates romantic, eye-catching puffed sleeves that are sure to set you apart at your next business meeting.
I love anything mock neck—it makes everything look more elevated. And this option from Vince works all year long, with a sleeveless cut that works by itself in the summer or under a cardigan in the fall and winter.
Paige is one of my favorite denim brands, because its denim is incomparably soft and never fails to fit my waist perfectly. This wide leg pair is stunning, too, with a high-waisted cut that hearkens back to the 1970s.
I live in my Monica Vinader pieces: They're versatile, and add the perfect amount of glam to any outfit without being too overpowering. This thin gold bracelet is the perfect example, with its tiny diamond centered amid a dainty chain.
If you need a clutch for an evening out, why opt for a boring black option? Instead, check out this option from Cult Gaia, which is comprised of a structured rectangular shape that's offset by a perimeter of fun, bubble-like beads.
I love a pleated mini skirt—it's flirty, feminine, and matches with anything for any occasion. This option from Aves Les Filles is made from faux leather and is machine washable to boot.
I'm a die-hard fan of comfortable shoe brand Birkenstock, but my outfit admittedly doesn't always suit its iconic chunky silhouette. That's why I appreciate the brand's foray into other styles like this one, which is perfect for wearing to work, to the park, or in the evening for drinks.
