The clock has struck midnight and bloggers, die-hard shoppers, and “Nordy girls” alike have begun scrolling feverishly through the Nordstrom site to claim their deals on must-have fall fashion offered at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It’s only THE shopping event of the year. Sale prices on fresh-finds for the new season – yes, fall merchandise in July. But the prices are the compelling reason to be searching through racks of sweaters and coats during the summer.
This sale is the time of year to refresh both your winter coat and underwear collections. As always, I’m interested in designer denim, cozy knits, and stylish footwear. Occasionally a coat (or two) and this year a dress. Yes, I’ve already shopped in Seattle’s flagship store and below is a sampling of what I have tried and tested to be the very top picks of the sale.
Denim: Because Nordstrom is the destination for designer denim, I’m always curious to see what’s on-trend for the new season. Still lots of uneven and raw hems. And while skinnies still reign supreme, I still love with all of the differing silhouettes like “mom jeans” and cropped flares.
Outerwear & Knits: I’m always looking to score cozy layers and warm knits for the new season. Especially if it includes a pink fur collar! Note: both of these items made it into my shopping bag.
Tops: This year continues to be all about the details. From embroidery to ruffles, there are plenty to choose from.
Shoes: While fall may be all about the bootie, I was particularly impressed with the selection of fashion sneakers this year. And the love of the mule or slide continues into the new season. Also, look for luxe fabrics like velvet and suede, as well as rich detailing like embroidery or floral prints.
Beauty: Many beauty counters participate in the sale. I’m looking for my favorite brands like Charlotte Tilbury (who offers many color exclusive to the sale) and I seriously stock-up on Supergoop sunscreen.
Accessories: Don’t overlook the assortment of sunnies, watches, and fashion jewelry. A favorite always includes Gorjana’s colorful gemstones. Also scope out handbags, in particular, I am loving all of the bright florals and colorful small crossbody bags.
