The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, or, as hardcore shoppers call it, the NSale, is something of an event. It is unique because it is a sale that happens BEFORE the fashion season begins, and gives a chance to shop new season fall items at end-of-season prices. And it is definitely a limited-time thing: The prices of everything in the Anniversary Sale will go back up to their full price once it is over on Sunday, July 31st.
So it’s definitely different from most sales, but that doesn’t mean that every single thing in the sale is newsworthy. For me, in order to warrant a purchase, an NSale item needs to either be:
- A quality item from a brand that rarely goes on sale
- A trending piece that I will want to wear all season to get the most bang for my buck
- Something that I love that will likely sell out before it hits end-of-season markdowns months later
- A designer deal
With those criteria in mind, I sifted through every single plus NSale item still in stock to create a curated list of the best plus deals for you:
Coats and Jackets
Pants and Leggings
Trend note: Leather (real and faux) is going to be HUGE this fall/winter, so snagging a good pair on sale now is a smart move
Dresses, Tops, and the Best of the Rest
Note: Elomi bras are the best wired options for very full busts, and it is very rare to see their fan-favorite Matilda style on sale, let alone in black!
P.S. If you are in the market for shoes or bags, there are some great deals to be had there too, including THE cutest clutch from Cult Gaia. The NSale Beauty Exclusives are also worth a look, especially if you have a luxury beauty or skincare fave you’ll need to replace soon.
