Well, well, well. Nordstrom released its #NSale preview at midnight, and our first look has been great. Everyone seems pretty pumped about the selection (“Way better than last year!!” seems to be the prevailing thought), and over the next few days we’ll be dropping some capsule wardrobes and styled looks based on our favorite pieces. I always love seeing what our editors come up with, but if there’s a piece that’s caught your eye, we’d love to know about it. Leave it in a comment below, and don’t be surprised if it shows up styled somewhere.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: 5 Cute Fall Looks That Are Total Wins
After spending a couple of hours perusing the preview (oof, it’s 3 a.m. already), I’m thrilled with the boots and sneakers. I’m a longtime fan of a good tan (or taupe) boot — it’s basically my most-worn boot — and both PAIGE and Vince delivered. Additionally, if you’re looking for chunky, lug-sole boots, AllSaints and Ash have some seriously good options in the sale too.
I was also excited by the coat selection (oh, hey, maxi coats), and this sale has re-affirmed my love of flare jeans.
OK, Nordstrom: I’m in.

Remember the cute blazer outfits in “Emily in Paris,” the ones we featured here? Yeah, I’m not over them, either. Those ideas definitely inspired this outfit. I love the idea of cuffing these straight-leg jeans and pairing with one of the most versatile boots on the planet: taupe. Oh, and the sexy bra is a reminder to try wearing the blazer as a top. (Or maybe just layer over a little cami, for maximum outfit flexibility.)

Ahhhhh…this is exactly what I want to wear all through summer — and well into second summer (aka fall). There’s just so much to love here: I have an almost-exact version of those KorkEase sandals and can vouch for their comfort and walkability, and that BAG (swoon) is from Black-owned business A A K S and is even more gorgeous in person. The Veronica Beard flares are a perfect shade of ’70s blue (but size up because they tend to run small).

I was so thrilled to see this Good American shacket in the sale. I have this exact piece at home (mine might be a little more ivory, less beige), and it’s GREAT. It has more of a sweatshirt feel, and it can be worn open (jacket-like) or as a shirt (which I actually prefer). I styled up this Good American shacket five ways here, if interested.

Once again, I’m going to focus on interesting basics, since those are the pieces I know I’ll wear again & again. La Ligne sweaters are always some of my go-tos, and I plan on wearing this one *not* tucked in. I think it could look effortlessly cool with a pair of flares and a trench coat.

I fell in love with wool maxi coats last winter, so I was over the moon to see some in this year’s #NSale! The power of these coats is that they can take my daily uniform (jeans, sneaks, tees) in a decidedly chic direction.
Also, this exact shade of brown is a genius pick for a wool maxi coat. It’ll go with black, yet it reads much softer than a black maxi coat.
