Hey, hey! Hope you’re ready…because Nordstrom’s Black Friday Sale just keeps getting better and better.

Best Of Nordstrom’s 2021 Black Friday Deals: Top Sale Picks By Editor

Let’s get right to it. If nothing else…you need this cashmere turtleneck.

S and Scotti figured out that it’s actually this year’s version of the Halogen Cashmere turtleneck (it just got a new name) that our entire team snagged last winter!! And I’m not exaggerating — almost everyone has one and loves it.

Otherwise, you can expect to see deals on some really good pieces like Scotti’s gorgeous wool + cashmere coat, APL sneakers, AllSaint leather jackets and more.

Happy sale shopping!! Oh and ps. Our shopping widgets may not always reflect the most current price, so it’s best to click through for all the great deals!

My Top 3 Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Recommendations

ONEAPL Techloom Wave Knit Running Shoe – These are some of the coolest running shoes I’ve owned. Are they the pair I wear to put in a ton of miles? Nah. But they’re solid for working out, bananas-comfy for walking around, and they look good with everything from workout gear to jeans to dresses, making them a solid choice for travel. My blush color is not on sale, but there’s a pretty pale gray with nude undertones…or check out ‘orange sunshine’. I think that might be my top pick to wear with all of my deep wine-colored workout gear.

TWO: Vince Wool Cable Knit Sweater – This sweater is a whopping 60% off AND fully stocked, and I’m pretty sure that’s because the image on Nordstrom’s site is…bizarre. It looks like a completely different (and wildly unflattering) sweater. On the model, the neckline looks big (it isn’t), the sweater looks oddly shaped (no) and…long? Um. Again, no. This sweater is actually pretty short; it’s at a good length to tuck in (without being cropped), and it’s just a really classic white cable knit sweater. Fit is TTS.

THREE: Nordstrom Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater – Remember my old Halogen Black Turtleneck sweater that I wore everywhere from skiing to date night? Well, Nordstrom has rebranded it as ‘Nordstrom cashmere’ and reissued it in some seriously good colors. Highly recommend.

Scotti’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: Nordstrom Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater – I love this sweater so much I have it in two different colors (and so does Shana). It’s soft, not itchy, drapes well and goes with pretty much everything — it’s great for layering and is definitely one of my most-worn pieces. (I’m wearing it with Nordstrom’s cashmere scarf which isn’t on sale but would make an amazing gift!)

TWO: BLANKNYC Faux Leather Jacket – This isn’t your typical faux leather jacket — it’s my go-to layer when I want to add some warmth to an outfit without going the cardigan route. (And this jumpsuit isn’t part of the sale, but it’s under $100 and I love it so much I now have it in three colors.)

Linzi’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: AllSaints Ridley Sweater – This sweater is a GEM to find on sale!  Right now Nordstrom is price-matching, but beware…they change this on the daily. Because of the design, you can wear it long, short, or in-between for an easy chic look.

TWO: Aquatalia Boots  These are a splurge, so it’s super fun when they go on sale and so beautiful in person.  I’m wearing the anthracite here, but the navy is especially pretty in person (and they come in black and brown as well). Wearing with one of my fav Vince stripe sweaters (also on sale!).

Amy’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – The best of the best, these get so much wear and are the best way to elevate all my favorite go-to black legging outfits! Contouring and smoothing effects don’t hurt, either (wearing true size, medium).

TWO: Vince Merino Wool Blend Cardigan – I will warn you off the bat, this camel color keeps selling out – but the black and grey are currently well stocked. It’s thick, soft, and can pass as a coat in mild winter temps – I’m over the moon in love with it! Wearing my true size, medium.

THREE: Staud Palamino Chelsea Boot – These beauties are show stoppers, they start out a bit stiff to pull on, but quickly loosen with wear and become very comfortable – and you can’t beat 40% off!

Meredith’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: Levi’s Wedgie High Waist Jean – These were the winners in my epic hunt to find the perfect Levi’s for me. Ridiculously good price right now. TTS (I’m wearing a 30).

TWO: Vince Boots – These are similar to my Steve Maddens, but without a heel. Plus, they’re waterproof!

Em’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: Free People Marlie Pullover – On its way to me as we speak! I’ve always loved a polo sweater, but the less refined knit on this one makes it feel even more wearable. Waiting for the day I can pair it with my good ol’ 501s or high-waisted trousers, a la the model. (For now, I’ll be half-tucking it into my maternity leggings or my fave camo joggers + adding a little gold jewelry to prevent it from feeling too sloppy.)

TWO: Levi’s Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket – The jacket that just doesn’t quit. Just oversized enough if you go with your true size (or size up if you’re after more of those Gen Z vibes) — and perfect with just about everything.

Julieta’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

One: Vince Drawstring Pants  –  60% off and selling fast. These pants are so versatile that you can wear them dressed up with a nice top and heels, or dressed down with sneakers and a sweater. I’d wear them with fleece tights underneath for the cooler weather. 

TWO: Vince Camuto Afelia High Knee Boot – Sand or dark brown? Well, they also come in black but I love a brown or sand color for a softer look with jeans. I’ll order both and report back. 

Kat’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: Good American Good ’90s Jeans –  It’s no secret that I am obsessed with Good American jeans and the Good 90s jeans are some of my all-time favorites, and they are on-trend for the season.

TWO: Nike Fleece Sweats – My most worn pants ever are these Nike structured sweats and I own them in several colors. They are super easy to elevate and also perfect for everyday wear. I will be wearing these for Thanksgiving this year.

Cam’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: FP Juicy Long Sleeve Cowl Neck Top – I got this top a couple of years ago and it has gotten a lot of wear. What I like about it – it’s cozy, soft, long enough to feel like a drapey, slouchy top for all of the jeans. I also really appreciate the crossover slit-back (which does not gape open, btw). It adds a flirty, cool detail to an everyday outfit. I am wearing a Small in the photo above. 

TWO: Levi’s 501 High Waist Straight Leg Jean – I like these jeans so much that I have two pairs – when one is dirty…no fear! #2 steps right in. I actually got two by accident, haha…thinking it was a slightly different take on the style, but no. lol! I am okay with it, though. I am wearing my normal size 27. They are long enough on my 5’10 frame to cuff, especially when wearing booties. They relax so nicely throughout the day, love them.

Laura’s Top Nordstrom Black Friday Sale Picks

ONE: AllSaints Balfern Leather Moto Jacket: You’ve heard me rave about this jacket for a few years now. Yes, I have it in multiple colors. This color is so unique-yet-wearable and so pretty in person. I sized up in this one to an 8 this year so I could wear sweaters underneath, but if you want it for lighter layers, it does run TTS. (The other I have is a 6 and it stretches just enough with wear.)

TWO: FRAME Le Lexington Chelsea Boot: I’ve worn these with even more looks than I thought I would this fall. They just add that mod pop to all of my jeans outfits that I love. Comfy, so beautifully made and TTS.

THREE: AllSaints Lou Stripe Sweater: This lovely sweater is just the epitome of slouchy, cozy, fuzzy winter goodness. Yes, oversized. Yes, bold. But I adore it. The V neck keeps it from being too hot or too itchy at the neck, and it’s still soft enough to do the half-tuck. I really love this and am glad it’s cold enough to wear now!

  1. I got the Vince cable knit sweater and Shana is 100% right, the image is completely inaccurate and “bizarre”, the sweater is perfect and fantastic. Never would have ordered it if you had not posted that photo of you in it, so much better. Really good rec. Can’t wait to wear it.
