We Found The 24 Best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dresses

·3 min read

If you’re a summertime dress-wearer, you can’t miss Nordstrom’s massive Anniversary Sale — especially when deals on designer brands from the likes of Madewell, Good American, and Co are up to 60% off. This year, the fashion retailer has frocks on sale for all occasions, including back-to-work attire, summer weddings, and everyday wear.

The Anniversary Sale — which ends on August 8 — tends to be a doozy with styles appearing to sell out quickly. But, if we can offer a hot tip, keep checking back or add items to your wishlist as you go, because certain styles may be periodically restocked. (We’ll also be updating this roundup throughout the duration of the Anniversary Sale.) We're here to help — ahead, shop some of the best dress styles we found at this scorchin’-hot sale.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
