It’s a good time to be in the market for a discount! Not only are stores such as as The Outnet currently offering some incredible deals, with savings of up to 85 percent off, but it’s almost time for one of the best sales of the year — the Nordstrom anniversary sale! Even better than the Half-Yearly Sale , with discounts on both summer styles as well as new designs for the upcoming fall season, you can save big on brands like Tory Burch, Nike, UGG, The North Face, Kate Spade, you name it — the gang's all here, with an average discount of 30 percent or more. Excited yet? Good. 'Cause before the sale even officially starts for all customers on July 21, cardholders can get a head start simply by signing in and shopping to their heart’s content. If you don’t have a card, not to worry: You can still sneak a peek at the sale and get your wish list ready. Keep scrolling through to see our top picks. Happy shopping!
Topshop Spot Strappy Culotte Jumpsuit ($53): We’re seeing stars! The celestial print of this culotte jumpsuit would have sold us in and of itself, but the fact that it’s also 34 percent off its original price of $80 certainly doesn’t hurt, either.
Marc Jacobs North/South Crossbody Bag ($117): A pretty floral Marc Jacobs crossbody for just over $100? Yes, please! We’ll definitely be taking one of these adjustable printed beauts, which is marked down from $175.
BRUNETTE Fries Before Guys Sweatshirt ($52): No boring loungewear here! In fact, this graphic sweatshirt, now slashed by 34 percent, is so cute, we’d wear it out on the town. Perhaps to get some fries with the girls?
Tory Burch Claire Flats ($165): These modern takes on everyone’s favorite leather Tory Burch flats feature the signature T logo the brand is known for outlined in a piped fabric ring. They come in four colors, and at 36 to 38 percent off, you’ll be saving about 10 percent more than we regularly see styles like this going for.
Mimi Chica Cold Shoulder Asymmetrical Maxi Dress ($36): This seriously sweet cold-shoulder dress has far more detail than any $36 score should, with an elastic waistband, keyhole and tie closure detailing, and adjustable straps to boot. Swoon!
Lauren Ralph Lauren Faux Leather Trim Trench Coat ($150): Everyone needs a classic rain trench, and no one does classic better than Ralph Lauren. With water-resistant fabric and faux leather piping, you’ll be chic (and dry!) in this piece that also happens to be $90 off.
Socialite Ruffle Wrap Romper ($32): Summer isn’t over yet, and in its dog days, you better believe we’ll be wearing the heck out of this ruffled wrap romper, which comes in both a solid and a print. PS — At 35 percent off, it’s also one of the highest discounts of the bunch!
Nike Free Focus Flyknit 2 Training Shoe ($90): While we’d think twice about scrolling past ANY Nike footwear at up to 30 percent off, this Flyknit 2 pair happens to be extra cute, particularly in the cool gray and arctic green hues shown here.
Hinge Ruffle Mesh Blouse ($46): We’re practically drooling over this sheer tulle Hinge blouse with its pretty bell sleeves, ribbon cuffs, and spread collar. Go for gothic romance with the black version or angelic with white, or better yet, since it’s $23 off, why not get both?
MAC Look in a Box Nice ‘N Spicy ($36): Yes, brand name beauty products, like these MAC Look in a Box kits, are on sale too! This one, valued at $56, drops to $36, and includes a matte lip liquid, Pro Longwear lip pencil, and a Prep + Prime lip primer. That’s just $12 an item! If you’re not into neutrals, there’s also the uber-fuschia Call Me Love set or Early to Red (need we say more?).
Via Spiga Reversible Faux Leopard Coat ($120): As much as we’re enjoying the summer heat, inevitably, the seasons WILL change (wah!), and we’ll have to face the cold-weather music. But at least we’ll have this posh leopard/black quilted reversible coat to keep us warm, thanks to the $60 Nordstrom shaved off the tag.
BP. Quilted Velvet Backpack ($36): Go back to school (or work!) in style with this diamond-quilted velvet backpack with faux leather trim. Considering we’ll get far more use of this than the $19 we’ll save, it’s practically a steal.
UGG Daley Tall Boots ($165): Priced at $85 below list, these cozy tall suede UGG boots are practically begging for you to buy them in one of the four available colors. They have a memory foam cushioned foot bed, to boot (har, har), making them both stylish AND comfy.
Topshop Faux Leather Skirt ($40): Though this skirt is 100 percent animal-friendly, you’d never know it wasn’t the real deal, and for that kind of top-notch quality, we’d gladly pay the extra 33 percent they’ve taken off this skirt, which comes in both navy and rust.
Cathy’s Concepts Monogram Passport & Luggage Tag ($49): Travel in personalized style with this leather passport and luggage tag that comes custom with your initial. No more grabbing for black bags that sorta look like yours at the baggage carousel — hooray!
Trouvé Fringe Moto Leather Jacket ($219): Calling all badasses! Your new summer-to-fall jacket has arrived in the form of this seriously awesome fringed find. While it’s still a bit pricey, coming in at over $200, it’s 33 percent less than you’ll pay any other time of the year. Plus, it’s leather, so it’s an investment piece, really.
Sunnylife Inflatable Drink Holder ($13): Now that you have your Kim Kardashian West, erm, tush pool float, you’ll want to add this adorable accompaniment, which holds up to four beverages, to really maximize your pool enjoyment. Did we mention it’s only $13 (down from $22)?
Burberry 50mm Check and Camo Sunglasses ($170): Brand name? Check. More than 30 percent off? Check. Fly as hell? Check, check, check. We’ll take one pair, please.
