1. Caslon V-Neck T-Shirt
Short-sleeve tops are essential for all seasons, which is why people are snatching them up. Wear them in winter with a cardigan and wear them in summer with shorts. This Caslon v-neck t-shirt is amazing. I own them in multiple colors and styles, and continue to stock up when they are on sale. Others agree that they are a great buy, as they have over 2,100 solid reviews.
When I think of cozy footwear my mind always drifts to Uggs. Every year, my mom buys a new pair of fuzzy slippers that she’ll wear daily to keep her feet toasty from the cold A/C. And it looks like people are feeling the same way. We’ll definitely be grabbing a pair of the Fluffette Slipper during the sale, and our readers have also been grabbing new boots.
3. BP. Jogger Pants
Matching sets have been all over social media, and will most likely continue to thrive there, especially as we head into another round of pandemic fall/winter. So it’s no surprise these joggers are a best-seller right now. Nordstrom’s juniors brand, BP., makes quality clothing, and at just under $25, you’re getting a steal. Plus, you can get the matching top for the same price, or opt for matching shorts.
4. Nordstrom Moonlight Pajamas
When quarantine began, I realized I did not own pajamas, for if I did, it would be easier to differentiate my ‘day clothes’ from my ‘night clothes.’ And Nordstrom shoppers must have thought the same thing and have been purchasing Nordstrom’s popular Moonlight Pajamas, which have thousands of rave reviews. I purchased the short version and fell in love. They are comfortable, stylish, and perfect for lounging, and I’ve been waiting for them to be on sale to order the nightshirt and pants versions, which was the right move because now they have a cropped pants version for short people like me!
5. Blondo Waterproof Bootie
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the absolute best time to purchase boots for fall and winter. New, designer shoes enter the market at unbeatable prices before going back up to their regular cost. Blondo boots are a fan favorite for its quality, waterproof goodness, are available in white—which was sold out last year, but is back for this year’s anniversary sale. So naturally, people are adding to cart.
6. Barefoot Dreams Cardigan
Cardigans are a must-have item for every season. They’re great for summer, winter, wearing summer clothes in winter, and wearing winter clothes in summer. They are honestly the most important and underrated closet essential. The Barefoot Dreams CozyChic cardigan with thousands of perfect reviews is on sale this year, and people are already stocking up on it in a few colors.
7. Hunter Boots
Hunter rain boots have garnered popularity for their minimalistic riding style and have been seen on the likes of celebrities such as Kate Moss and Alexa Chung. Plus, they actually live up to the hype. When we put these rain boots to the test, we found that they didn’t let any water sneak through, were easy to wipe clean, and are comfortable to walk in. You can score several of Hunter boots on sale, but our readers are particularly loving these leopard ones.
8. Vineyard Vines Quarter Zip
Preppy prints, pastels, polos—all things that make Vineyard Vines such a beloved brand and all things that are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Our readers are obsessed with the Coopers Town Stripe Quarter Zip Pullover, which is available in gray and spinnaker.
9. Living Proof Products
I first tried Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day products in a travel size for a trip to Italy last year—and after using it, I had to get the full size. It left my hair hydrated and not frizzy, so I essentially had no bad hair days while traveling. It was essential for my fire Instagrams, and now you can get some on sale for perfect hair days, too.
10. Veja Sneakers
Vejas sneakers are one of Meghan Markle’s favorites (she’s been spotted in the V-10s all the time). And Nordstrom shoppers have decided to dress like royalty. The sleek sneakers—which are rarely ever on sale—have a cult following thanks to their minimalist design and comfortable fit and the fact that they’re made with sustainable materials.
11. Zella Leggings
Nordstrom’s fitness brand Zella carries leggings, and they’re one of the most popular items you can buy at the store. As an owner of many pairs, I can attest to them being great quality. They don’t tear or get itchy, and compared to brands like Lululemon, Athleta, and ALO, they are a fantastic price. With 4.5 stars from over 6,000 people, there’s no questioning how good these things are. I buy new pairs of Zella leggings whenever they are on sale, and this year will be no different, especially since I am always in leggings now.
12. Cole Haan GrandPro Low Top Sneaker
With hundreds of rave reviews, the popular GrandPro style—which comes in multiple versions—is praised for its comfortable footbed and for its sleek and edgy leather exterior. In case you aren’t convinced, said footbed also contours to your foot for a custom fit. Available in three colors on sale, it’s no surprise shoppers are buying them in masses.
13. Wacoal Bras
People are obsessed with Wacoal bras. With hundreds—some with thousands—of reviews, you really can’t go wrong purchasing one of these, unless you buy the wrong size of course, but that’s on you. With over 940 positive reviews, the How Perfect No-Wire Contour bra is also great and perfect for days when you have to wear a bra, but would rather not—and clearly our readers would rather not.
14. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings
Spanx Faux Leather Leggings are a staple to look out for during the anniversary sale. I bought mine last year and I wear them all the time during the fall and winter. They are great to wear with sweaters while running errands, and also great to pair with a top for nights out. With just about 3,000 rave reviews on Nordstrom’s website, I am not alone. Because they are Spanx, they are flattering by nature, but they are also extremely stylish, and they come in petite and plus size. Every time I wear them, I get compliments. These might be the best thing Nordstrom sells, which is clearly why our readers are snagging them again this year.
15. Spanx Underwear
Just like the faux leather leggings, shoppers are obsessed with Spanx underwear. They are great for when you want a little extra coverage, but you also want to be able to breathe and not feel constrained. Nearly 580 reviewers agree with me that they are a great purchase, so grab them while they’re still on sale.
