Our Top NSale Recommendations

Best Women’s Clothing In The Anniversary Sale

Fall means (really) good denim (hi, AG bootcut jeans), pretty layers, lots of sweaters and long brown coats (peek at the comfy quilted jacket from BLANKNYC below…), and well, it’s no surprise that the NSale has hit all of those autumnal-dressing boxes. Our top picks in the sleekest, most gorgeous styles here: 

Best Men’s Clothing In The Anniversary Sale

Your man probably wants to update his wardrobe for the season (at least a little) too — and luckily, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale’s got all the men covered at such good price points (like these under-$60 New Balance sneakers) that grabbing a handful of items for your hubby doesn’t break the bank (or dip into your fall/winter wardrobe allowance…). Hehe.

Best Kids’ Clothing In The Anniversary Sale

How cute are these pieces for the Really Littles (aka kids) to Little Adults (aka teens & tweens)? We love that the Anniversary Sale’s timing is juuust right for snapping up some cool pieces to get the kiddos really excited for back to school. I’m dying over these Hunter rain boots and these adorable daisy Vans.

Best Hair, Makeup & Skincare In The Anniversary Sale

We did an entire post on the top beauty items that we recommend picking up from the Sale. There we’ve covered like…alllll the fun self-care bits (callout: this amazing Tom Ford body oil set) because yanno…life is too short to not overdo it in the beauty department (especially when huge discounts are involved). 😉

Best Home Goods & Decor In The Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Sale’s home section is not to be missed for quality home upgrades or fun classics and (some inspiringly trendy) decor additions — like this Piglet In Bed linen duvet cover and Diptyque candle gift set. Check out our post on our fave items, and here are some more of our most exciting finds: 

Best Shoes & Boots In The Anniversary Sale

This is definitely one of our fave categories during the change of seasons, and Nordstrom has kind of killed it this year with seriously pretty shoes in the Sale (including a mix of ones we’re really pumped to try, like these Kork-Ease platform sandals, AND some that have been our faves for years, like these fun P448 sneaks, but in updated styles & colors). Yayyy for new shoes & boots!

Best Coats & Jackets In The Anniversary Sale

We’re totally head-over-heels for puffers (look at this Save The Duck one), trench coats, anything longline (re: this pretty Fleurette coat), and allll the durable weather possibilities. The dropping temps (and harsher weather conditions) seem a little less cold and annoying when you have on a pretty coat to combat it with.

Best Dresses In The Anniversary Sale

Gah! The wide variety of dresses has us going for both statement styles at higher price points like this super-cool FRAME denim minidress and everyday silhouettes that are way-affordable at Nordstrom Anniversary Sale pricing like this Madewell number. Dressing for late summer/all of fall? The dress section has got you (gorgeously) covered. 

Best Activewear & Loungewear In The Anniversary Sale

Oooo, another favorite category. We live in this stuff and have pretty high standards when it comes to activewear and loungewear that is worth a (somewhat) steeper price if it’s gonna get all the wear. Here are some items (hellooo, ALO Airlift leggings) and brands (SPANX, Sweaty Betty) that we totally back in terms of comfort, toughness + style.

Best Accessories In the Anniversary Sale

The Sale has got handbags (A A K S!!), sunnies (omg, these Prada ones…) and jewelry galore (hello, gold hoops) — and in pretty timeless styles that are SO worth picking up for the long run. It’s always fun to splurge in any category (haha) but to us, especially with accessories. Little items that can totally change an outfit’s vibe are totally worth the closet space and $$.
