Spring is just around the corner! Sure, it might not feel like it — especially if you live in an area that's currently covered in snow — but trust us: warmer weather is coming soon. That means it'll finally be time for light jackets, skirts, dresses — and chucking our snow boots to the back of the closet.

If you're looking to get a head start on warm-weather gear, Nordstrom Rack's Clear the Rack sale is the place. The retailer just slashed an extra 25 percent off already marked-down clearance items, so you can finally get those ankle booties, flirty dresses, or perfect pair of jeans, all at a fraction of the original price.

Here are some pieces we adore:

A cozy cardigan for just $17

A lightweight cardigan works for all seasons: You can pair it with a turtleneck in the winter, a tee in the spring and fall, and throw it over a tank on chilly summer nights. This beauty has roomy dolman sleeves, a high-low hem, and envelops you just like your favorite blanket.

"Love everything about this cute cardigan!" one shopper shared. "The color is great and goes with everything and the style is super chic. Lots of compliments from others and a great staple for my closet."

The perfect springtime bootie — just $22

No, that's not a typo — they're really just $22! Originally $150 — that's an unreal 85 percent off! — these adorable leather ankle boots by Vince Camuto have stylish braided cutout detailing at the ankle, and a chunky heel that's perfect for whatever your day throws at you. Pro tip? Order half a size up.

"Love these boots!" one shopper shared. "Wish I had bought two pairs! They are really cute and comfortable."

Sparkling earrings that look like the real deal, for just $18

These stunning pear-shaped drop earrings are sure to be an attention grabber and conversation starter. A plus: You don't have to tell anyone you spent just $18 on them (don't worry, they'll think these are worth thousands more).

"Very happy with these, they were exactly what I was looking for," says a fan. "They seem well constructed and feel light and comfortable. They look great, not gaudy at all."

The comfiest pants ever, at just $14

Spring-ify your sweatsuit! These knit pants have a stylish cropped leg, comfy banded waistband, and large pockets. They're available in three colors, including this adorable pink shade. Let's be honest: For the price, you can grab a few — and it still wouldn't cost as much as buying one pair of pants at full price.

A stylish leather bag for 39 bucks

If you're like Goldilocks when it comes to bags — some are too small, others too big — then you'll love this Lucky Brand leather tote. It's the perfect size for the essentials — keys, phone, a wallet — but it has enough room for anything extra you might need that day, like a tablet, e-reader, a scarf, and more. It's easy to compartmentalize too, thanks to the assortment of pockets inside. 

One shopper divulged: "This bag is perfect! It's roomy and so well made. I searched and searched for a bag that didn't collapse when I set it down. This tote isn't super stiff but still holds its shape."

Whether you're kicking back at home or running out the door, make sure you're doing it in this lightweight V-neck, made of a sumptuous rayon-poly blend. Casual dropped shoulders and a kiss of spandex make it the ideal top to spend all weekend in.

"My daughter loved this," wrote one mom. "...Inside and outside were comfortable and soft. Very pretty piece."

"This loafer is very stylish and even more comfortable," one shopper gleefully reported. "I receive compliments every time I wear them."
