Nordstrom is one of those retailers I can count on for a fresh stock of chic finds on a near-weekly basis. Whether it's a trench coat I need for the transitional weather or a much-needed pair of work sneakers, Nordstrom has it. But the problem I often run into is that the cool new items I have my eye on tend to sell out... Fast. My stomach drops every time I see that dreaded "sold out" message, so I've decided to get ahead of the game.
As we're gearing up for gifting season, shoppers are holding out for the best sale of the year, a.k.a. Black Friday, to hit "purchase" on their shopping carts, but I'm personally not taking any chances. Ahead, I've rounded up the items I can practically guarantee will sell out by the time Black Friday rolls around. They are just that good. We're talking the best of the best bags, sweaters, sneakers, denim, and more. These items have plenty of five-star reviews, plus they've earned staple status. They even work as great gifts for any fashion lover in your life. If you're not one to gamble, I recommend snatching these fashion finds up while you still can.
With red as hot of a color as it is right now, there's no chance this sweater will stay in stock for a couple more weeks. Especially considering the fact that it's 100 percent cashmere and on sale. This is the kind of sweater to layer over button-downs, tie around your shoulders, or even gift to a friend. It's classic, high-quality, and will serve your closet well in the long run. Did I mention it comes in 16 other colors?
A great pair of trousers is an absolute must in anyone's closet. While they obviously work for the office, they also work great for more casual outfits. If you pair these with cool sneakers and your favorite graphic tee or cropped sweater, you've instantly got a more elevated look. This pair even has an elastic back waist to ensure maximum comfort.
I know you know how much flats have taken over the footwear landscape. If you haven't yet, now's the time to jump on the trend before these flats inevitably sell out. While they may feel particularly of the moment, these flats have a classic look that can be easily styled with jeans, dresses, skirts, you name it. Over 2,000 Nordstrom shopper gave these flats a 5-star rating, so you know they're good.
We've dubbed Madewell's cult-favorite leather tote the best tote bag of all time, and it's a title we don't give out to just any bag. This tote earned the distinction thanks to its roomy interior, smooth, high-quality leather, and several pockets. The fact that you have two options to carry (with the top handles or the crossbody strap) and can keep your items secure with the zipper top closure makes this tote a real winner.
A sweater like this is practically guaranteed to sell out, and let me tell you why. Its slightly oversized look along with the mock neckline and dropped shoulders make this sweater comfortable and chic, something that doesn't happen often. Reviews say it's soft and warm, plus it comes in a lot of easy-to-wear shades. All of that for $50 makes this sweater a steal, so buy it now while you still can.
Levi's is unmatched in terms of quality, style, and affordability, which is why we're huge fans of the brand here at MC. To put it simply, these might be the most perfect pair of Levi's that exist. They have that ultra-high rise that works magic at snatching in your waist and a straight-leg silhouette that goes with any look. These are a classic pair of jeans you can keep in your closet for a long time, guaranteed.
This bag has long been a cult-favorite among the fashion set and for good reason. Firstly, it can fit so. much. stuff. We're talking about your laptop, gym clothes, makeup, and the rest of your essentials. The best part is that it doesn't ever look too stuffed and stays lightweight, plus it has a water-resistant lining and finish. Once you take one trip with this sleek weekender bag, you'll see what all of the hype is about.
Whether you love them or hate them, you can't deny the popularity or comfort of the UGG boot. Celebrities like Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Emily Ratajkowski have all brought this style back from the '00s vault, and I expect it'll be back in full force this year. They're crazy comfy, easy to throw on, and come in a bunch of colors. What's not to love?
If you've ever wanted to go about your day wrapped in a blanket, this is the way to do it and still be socially acceptable. Barefoot Dreams took their ultra-cozy fabric from their famous blankets and made it into a chic cardigan. It's warm, lightweight, totally comfortable. I'd wager you can easily wear this into the office with some wide-leg trousers and ballet flats. Don't wait on this purchase, though, because some sizes and colors are already selling out.
This backpack will be a godsend to anyone in your life who's forced to lug their laptop on their commutes. We love it for its structured shape and padded sleeve that can fit up to 15-inch laptops. It also has plenty of room to keep all of your other essentials organized and even has a trolley sleeve to make travel days hands-free. Talk about a useful gift.
I have had these sneakers on my wish list for an embarrassingly long amount of time and I've finally decided to make the purchase. With these constantly selling out in my size, I realized I don't need Black Friday to gift myself a new pair of sneakers. I adore the high-top look, especially since they're unlike any other sneakers in my collection. The pop of blue makes this pair more fun, too.
Wide-leg jeans feel especially on point right now, so I'm expecting this pair to be a huge hit as we approach Black Friday. They have that kind of easygoing style that works just as well for weekend brunch as it does with a blazer for the office. In case you didn't know, wide-leg jeans also happen to be insanely comfortable. Don't get it wrong, though—these jeans are also flattering thanks to a high waist and snug fit through the hips.
These knee-high boots are truly the boots of my dreams. They're sleek, have a low heel, come in wide-calf sizes(!), and don't feel too trendy. They're made all the better knowing that they are comfortable. One reviewer even wrote, "The most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn! I didn’t need any break in and wore it on my trip that involved intensive walking." Color me impressed.
A sweater made from 100 percent cashmere with a price tag under $200 is a rare find, so I'm shocked this Nordstrom find is still in stock. Featuring a super-soft knit, mock neck, and relaxed fit, this sweater is undeniably chic. The stripe pattern earns it major style points, too. I'm willing to bet if a French girl walked into Nordstrom and could only buy one thing, it would be this luxe sweater.
We're quickly approaching winter so it's time to swap out your satin skirts for knitted ones. This midi skirt hugs your body close in a cozy ribbed knit to keep you warm, plus can easily be dressed up or down easily with blouses, sweaters, boots, or sneakers. With five different neutral colorways, I'd be tempted to grab more than one color to get you through the season.
Come wintertime, you're going to need a pair of sturdy boots. With this Sam Edelman pair, you don't have to sacrifice style or functionality. These look just like your average Chelsea boot but with a winter upgrade with a thick lugged sole and waterproof finish. Rest assured you can stomp through the snow and slush in these without any fear of slips or stains. I would grab these now, though, as the black and brown suede versions are currently on sale!
How these cult-favorite leggings are nearly half off and still in stock is a mystery to me. Celebs from Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Olivia Wilde are all obsessed with Alo's Airlift leggings and now's your chance to grab them at a major discount. These leggings have a moisture-wicking, sculpting fabric that feels just as good as they look on. Plus, how cute is this red shade?
