The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the biggest sales events of summer. When you can access it depends on whether you are a Nordstrom club member or not. Take a look at what to expect from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale as well as clothes, shoes and accessories already discounted.
What to expect from the Nordstrom Sale
Everyone has access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale from July 28 through August 8.
Even before the sale officially starts, there are plenty of discounts already to be found at Nordstrom. See below for some of the sale items I have my eye on.
I like the versatility of the drape cardigan (below). You could wear as shown in the image, or you could knot it by using the two longer sections as a tie.
It comes in a good choice of neutral shades including gray, taupe, white and black as well as burgundy and the brownish-red below. Perfect to buy now for when summer turns to fall.
With a nod to the moto jacket but in a softer style, the draped suede jacket from Anne Klein (below) comes in either navy, lilac or the stone color shown below.

With many of you heading soon from summer to fall, adding a moto jacket to your outfits means you can continue to wear your summer dresses for longer. Brown suede is not as harsh as black leather and this jacket will give your outfits an edgy touch.
A trench coat never goes out of style, and is a good transitional piece when you need to protect yourself from rain showers but don’t necessarily need to add much extra warmth. The London Fog coat (below) comes in black, beige or burgundy.
Depending on where you live, it may not quite be coat weather yet, but this belted Ralph Lauren coat could be a good one to put away for fall and winter.
I like the clean lines, the tie waist and the oversized collar. This will look good on most body shapes but would be particularly flattering if you have a pear shape figure as the collar will balance up your hips and thighs.
Do you have an event coming up to attend this summer. This Halogen dress would be perfect. It features an unusual asymmetrical hemline and short sleeves if you prefer not to show your upper arms.
straight leg pants
When shopping the sales, it’s always a good idea to look out for classics that won’t date, and you don’t get much more classic than a pair of black straight legged pants.

Vertical stripes are always a good way to add flattering, lean lines. The Vero Moda pants (below) would be good with flat or heeled sandals for summer.
I’m sure you know how much of a big fan of asymmetry I am. I’m also a big fan of wearing red. So the Alice + Olivia skirt (below) is a perfect combination. Be quick though, there weren’t very many left when I looked.
mixed media skirt
I also like the mixed media element and the asymmetric, diagonal detailing on the stitching of the Vince skirt (below) which could be dressed up for dinner or a summer event.
Shoes in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale
Now, let’s take a look at some of the shoes in the Nordstrom sale, that you can wear this summer.

Sam Edelman’s cutout slide sandals (below) are an absolute classic that you can wear for many summers to come.
If you already have a pair of black pumps in your closet, you may want another pair when you see the unusual heels on the Sarto pumps (below).

peep toe sandal
Peep toe sandals like the Bella Vita shoes below that are a bit of a hybrid between booties and sandals are always good for transitional weather or to add a bit of an edge to your outfits.
The woven design on the Marc Fisher slip-on sandals (below) gives them an-trend, but still timeless, element.
Metallics are a good choice as they go with everything in your closet. The Naturalizer sneakers (below) have a cushioned footbed so should keep you comfy and stylish.
Bags in the sale
Now onto some of the best bags in the sale this year.
TORY BURCH bag
Tory Burch tends to bring this bag (below) out in different colors each season. I think it’s the ideal size for fitting your phone and purse in to sling over your shoulder for a spot of sightseeing this summer.
KATE SPADE bag
In a soft gray, the Botkier bag (below) would be ideal to go with the more muted hues in your closet. The zip fastening at the top adds extra security.
You should be able to fit plenty of your daily essentials in the bucket bag (below). It also comes with a removable pouch to keep everything organized.
If you are lucky enough to be travelling this year, or you just want a good bag for running errands, the Tumi crossbody could be the answer.
animal print scarf
The print on the Nordstrom scarf (below) won’t date, so you can easily pop this away for fall, or use it as a wrap over your shoulders on cool summer nights.
The tassel necklace (below) comes in a gold or silver color depending on your preference and would go with plenty of your tops and dresses.
A pair of drop earrings will dress up most outfits. I like the mixed color element of these Tory Burch earrings.
