The ultimate fashion finds from Nordstrom's anniversary sale
Sales sometimes get a bad reputation; often, they're the bottom of the barrel items. And even if you do end up snatching your size (which is an impressive feat), styles tend to be out of season.
Good thing Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale boasts markdowns which far surpass the red-ticket merchandise of other retailers. Not only can you expect fashion that's in-style, but also you can expect it from your favorite designers. Alexander Wang, Joie, Dolce & Gabbana, and Burberry -- just to name a few -- all make the cut. We haven't even started on Nordstrom's signature in-house labels like Halogen and The Rail.
The sale, which opens to the public Friday, is the perfect excuse to give your wardrobe a summer update or stock up for the fall season. But fair warning: this is the only time prices will be this low. After the mega-deals are over, they will go back up to their original listing on August 3.
Since most of these trendy pieces are already on your shopping wish-list, it really would be a shame for you -- and your closets -- to have to pay full price later.
To get your online shopping cart started, we've rounded up 25 of the chicest picks to add to your wardrobe arsenal. Ready. Set. Shop!
