Fawning over the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? Us, too! Primarily because there are so many basics on sale, which means spending less on the stuff we wear over and over again. Versatility is key, especially when it’s tricky to find a perfect fit for your vertically challenged frame. Here are the best basics for petites from the sale that we simply can’t stop browsing.
Toss this angular blazer over a plain T-shirt for a night out or on top of a floral dress for a day at work. Versatile AF!
A simple, straightforward rain jacket that’ll get the job done—and accentuate your waist.
These super-soft jeans feel like leggings, actually have five pockets and a 26-inch inseam. Sold!
This bold berry color will really pop come fall, and you can never have too many cozy sweaters.
