We are less than a week away from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale Early Access!! Early Access starts July 12th and allows those who posses the Nordstrom card first dibs at one of the year’s most anticipated sales before it is open to the public on July 19th. That’s a whole 7 days! What a way to urge you to apply, right?
No lie, the fear of seeing the ‘sold out‘ on items I wanted to purchase last year pushed me to apply. But there are really good perks with having the card so I don’t regret it at all.
I also noticed most of the items were eventually restocked throughout the sale so you have a chance to still get what you want even if you don’t have the card. Keep in mind, many people over-buy and usually return to the stores in the following days because it either didn’t fit right or they saw their bill and thought, “yikes!”
It’s easy to get a little outta hand as you try to load your cart with everything that catches your eye. But for the sake of your sanity — and your wallet — I’ve decided to break down some trends and items you can expect to be on sale so you can pre-game now. As an added bonus, don’t forget to click the heart icon under the items you like so you will get a sale alert sent straight to your email when the price drops during the anniversary sale.
Also, keep in mind some top brands that did really well in last year’s sale. These brands are most likely to sell out fast so get ready!

Nordstrom Top Rated Picks
Show Me The Trends
Now let’s talk trends, shall we? Th NSale is a great time to start stocking up on fall-ready items and great transitional pieces. I also love the sale for more affordable everyday pieces like bras, pajamas and towels. The sale is also great for trendy pieces because your buying them at a discounted price because let’s be honest, we never know when a trend will die, right?
Walk On The Wild Side
OK, so let’s start with our first trend — Snake print. Snake print is so hot right now and I know it will be sizzling this fall. Also, croc-embossed items will be everywhere from shoes to purses. Leopard is always a safe bet, but you can also expect to see tiger stripes around town.
Brighter Days Ahead
A pop of color is sure to brighten any gloomy fall day. Show your true colors by adding bright, colorful pieces to liven up your outfit — and mood! Red, yellow, blue or green coats will look amazing and are so fun.
Mad for Plaid
Plaid is synonymous with fall and cooler temps, but we’re going to try and stay away from the lumberjack look and try some more chic, tailored pieces, K? Personally, I have my eye on this sweet jacket that will look amazing with jeans or skirt. Plaid will be everywhere from coats, tops, pants and shoes. Don’t be afraid to style this print with other prints, just keep them in the same color family. Also, you can make a head to toe plaid outfit pop, by layering on a solid colored cardigan or coat in one of the colors of the print to make it stand out.
Denim is definitely something I will be seeking during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ll be seeking out some updated straight-legged jeans and maybe another skinny to add to my closet. One hot trend for fall are flares. Denim is so easy to pair with just about anything and you can dress it up or down as you choose. So again, three trends to watch out for: Flares, Skinny, and Straight.
Touch of Autumn
Classic browns and warm orange colors just get me in the fall mood. Elevate your style by buying tailored pieces that will go far beyond this year and will always be a staple in your closet. Also, chunky sweaters and trousers can hide your shape so if you’re looking to find that waist, tuck in your blouses or sweater. This will also help elongate your legs when sporting cropped trousers.
The Beautiful Life
From trendy tools to must-have makeup to step up your glam — the sale will have it! There will be packaged deals from Drybar, BeautyBio and La Mer. A great way to get more bang for your buck and try out products that would more costly on their own.
Stock Up On Essentials
This is what I’m most excited about. Momma needs a new pair of jammies. Did you know that I’m still sporting my maternity PJs and my baby Ava is 2 years old! No lie, they are super comfy, but I really don’t need the breastfeeding access anymore, ya know? Some new bed sheets are also needed so I’ll be looking forward to that as well.
