What to Know About the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has two portions.  The Early Access sale, for Nordstrom Card holders, which begins July 12th.  And the Public Sale Event which opens to everyone on July 18th.  It’s best to shop early, if you have a card, and use a triple points day, which will offer benefits to you throughout the sale.  Here is a preview of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog so you can get a jump start on your list.

How to Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Shop the Trends

This is a great time to pick up some trend pieces that you can incorporate into your fall and winter wardrobe.  Brands like Topshop and ASTR the label are great trend brands to start with.  For trends, try to choose items that are under $100.  The trends that are making an appearance for fall:

  • Mixing and matching plaids
  • Bright colors
  • Fun bags and accessories

Trends are the pieces you can purchase one or two of.  They are perfect to mix with your basics and essentials to feel perfectly updated for the coming season.  I’m listing and linking some great trends to be on the lookout for in the next section.

Shop the Basics

Basics are pieces that tend to be found in neutral colors, or simple prints.  Before shopping, make a list of some basic pieces you wear a lot (jeans, sweaters, tops, etc.).  Then be on the lookout for those specific basics during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  A great rule of thumb for budgeting basics is $100 or over because they will be the pieces you’re wearing over and over again.
