It’s the most wonderful time of the year: sale season! At least that’s how I feel, as a fashion editor who shops for a living (and also for fun, in every spare minute I have). Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is not to be missed, for savings on trendy must-haves and classic wardrobe stapes alike. Here are my 16 picks for the pieces that are editor-approved.
It’s never too early to decide on your back-to-school look (even if you haven’t actually been a student for over a decade).
Diamonds are forever. But these prices are obviously not!
A punch of hot pink will dress up your favorite T-shirt.
Upgrade your black sunnies with a pair that has a subtle touch of silver hardware.
Presenting your new travel pants. These trendy trousers will make your next plane ride infinitely more comfortable.
A pair of snakeskin mules will go with (almost) every sundress you own.
When winter rolls around again, you’ll be so happy to already have this hanging in your closet.
At this price, you can afford to test out a statement-making hat.
You don’t have to keep up with the Kardashians to appreciate just how well these hug your booty and make your waist look tiny.
Splurge on this simple design and you’ll discover that you need a whole closet filled with cashmere dresses.
Whoever said leopard is a neutral wasn't kidding.
Because croc-embossed anything instantly looks expensive.
Undies that guarantee a seamless look every time? Yeah, that’s why every stylist and fashion editor keeps these on-hand.
Yes, you can wear chunky booties in the dead of summer. Just pair them with a floaty white prairie dress.
Everyone needs a classic trench. This one can actually be worn in the rain, thanks to the removable hood.
FYI, the square neckline on this top is what makes it feel trendy.
