2 big sales are coming – the Amazon Prime Day sale and Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale will give full access on July 17th through August 6th.

The two-day Amazon Prime Day sale runs through July 11th and 12th. While it may be better known for its technology bargains, there are also plenty of fashion finds.

Last year, the fashion deals came thick and fast. Plus, items are obviously only on sale until they sell out so I’d grab it quickly if you see something you like.

Some things don’t go on sale until the second day, so you may like to check back often.

In particular, you will find that Amazon’s own brand fashion labels will be on sale.

Only Amazon Prime members can access the Amazon Prime Day sale. But, if you aren’t sure about Amazon Prime, you could always take advantage of the free 30-day membership and then cancel after the sale if you decide Prime isn’t for you.

What to expect from the Amazon Prime Day sale | 40plusstyle.com

The Amazon fashion brands likely to be on sale during Amazon Prime Day

Just like previous years, you will find discounts on Amazon’s own fashion brands.

Take a look at Amazon own fashion brands like The Drop, Amazon Essentials, Lark & Ro, find., Truth & Fable, Meraki and Aurique. Even if what you like isn’t on sale, these brands tend to be well-priced and often there is a discount coupon for Prime members.

Amazon pieces we love
