It's confusing that a retailer known for carrying some of the world's top designers could price some of its inventory for less than the cost of a vending machine bag of chips, but Nordstrom Rack isn't just any old retailer. On a good day, its markdowns on denim, shoes, bags, and more would seem too good to be true if we didn't know it was the real deal. And then, there are its actual sale events.
ICYDK, Nordstrom Rack's Clear the Rack Sale is one of the best opportunities to snag all your favorite brands for less thanks to the retailer's steep markdowns to, you guessed it, make way for more. So, while you're eyeing up those Labor Day weekend sales, you'll want to head over to the retailer to get your hands on some of the best deals you can find during this under-the-radar shopping weekend.
With denim from Levi's marked down to as little as $22 and Chloe knits up to 75 percent off, the sale is a gold mine of designer fashion at a price that feels like you're getting away with a glitch in the system. The Clear the Rack Sale ends after Monday, but it's fair to assume all the best things will be gone before then so you'll want to snag them while you still can.
With more than 10,000 items included, it can admittedly be a little overwhelming to sift through all the gems. That's why we decided to help narrow it down to 20 essential pieces you'll want to add to your wardrobe ahead of fall. From chic shoulder bags to under-$40 ankle boots, there's sure to be something to elevate your closet at a price so good it doesn't feel real.
