Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is hands down my favorite sale of the year. I don’t know what it is but I seriously countdown the days like a kid to Christmas! Typically sales to get rid of old season inventory to make way for new pieces. The cool thing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that there are hundreds of markdowns on new season items. Additionally, designers and staple items that rarely go on sale are available for a discount –  think Stuart Weitzman, A.L.C., Cult Gaia, etc. Here are my 3 keys to getting the most out of shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

1) Identify gaps in your wardrobe. Now is a great time to stock up on quality basics. If you don’t have a favorite t-shirt, a nice wool coat, luxe cashmere knits, or long lasting leather goods now is the time to stock up and save.

2) Set a budget. Shopping sales is extremely beneficial but can result in overindulgence if you’re not disciplined. Lay out a plan to make smart choices for your closet and wallet.

3) Stick to the plan. You’ve determined what you need and how much you’re willing to spend. Now stick with it! I always ask myself “Do I have to have this?”. If the answer is no I leave it and if the answer is yes I grab it.


For sizing reference I’m 5’8″ and typically wear an XS/S in tops, 0/2 in dresses, 25/26 in denim, and S in outerwear. TTS means true to size.


Camel Cardigan Coat

Sale: $354  ||  After Sale: $545

Review: I saw this last year but wasn’t quick enough to grab it. I’m so glad I finally got my hands on it. This coat is more of a super heavy cardigan than a coat so it’s perfect for fall layering. The Vince Cardigan Coat is super easy to dress up with heels or dress down with athletic wear. I love the camel color on this one but it also comes in grey.

Size: XXS

Fit: Runs large, relaxed fit

Ways to Style It

Cardigan Coat XXS || Similar Coated Denim || Heels TTS || Cashmere Crewneck M || Straight Leg Jeans 25 || Similar Tan Booties || Cropped Pullover XS || Joggers XS || Sneakers TTS


Straight Leg Jeans

Sale: $149  ||  After Sale: $225

Review: The Rag & Bone jeans were hands down my favorite of the sale this year. The cut, the wash, the material – everything about these jeans feels trendy yet timeless. They are nonstretch and have a 90s/vintage look. This is a great length for wearing with booties in the fall and winter.

Size: 25

Fit: TTS, relaxed through hips and thighs

Ways to Style It

Straight Leg Jeans 25 || Turtleneck XS (runs large) || Black Booties TTS || Cashmere Sweater M (sized up for oversized fit) || Flats TTS || T-Shirt XS


Cashmere Crewneck Sweater

Sale: $89  ||  After Sale: $129

Review: Every year I stock up on cashmere knits during the sale. It’s the best way to get high quality staples at a fraction of the price. This one is under $100 and you will wear it all season long. Trust me! I have this one in 3 colors and the cashmere pullover in 2.

Size: I typically go with an XS/S if I want to layer under tailored blazers and moto jackets. For more casual, oversized looks I tend to size up to a M.

Fit: TTS (size up for an oversized look, size down for a tailored look)

Ways to Style It


Grey Cashmere Pullover M (sized up for oversized fit) || Trench Coat S || White Trousers 4 (run slightly large), similar here || Sneakers TTS || Black Cashmere Crewneck S || Similar Poncho O/S || Straight Leg Jeans 25 || Beige Cashmere Crewneck M (sized up for oversized fit) || Plaid Trousers 2 (runs slightly small)


Plaid Blazer

Sale: $119  ||  After Sale: $179

Review: The most versatile blazer of the sale. The fit, pattern, and fabric are perfect for the office with trousers and flats but can also be worn with distressed jeans and sneakers on the weekend. Not only is this one the perfect balance of casual and elevated, it’s also incredibly soft and feels way more luxe than the price would suggest.

Size: S

Fit: TTS, tailored fit

Similar: Vince Camuto Blazer

Ways to Style It

Plaid Blazer S || Dress XS || Similar Boots || Plaid Trousers 2 (run slightly small) || Heels TTS || Grey Cashmere Pullover M (sized up for oversized fit) || Straight Leg Jeans 25


Long Belted Coat

Sale: $98  ||  After Sale: $159

Review: Another work to weekend staple is this long belted coat. It’s so soft and brings polish to even the most casual outfits. I love the option to tie the waist for a super chic look or leave it undone for a more laidback look.

Size: M (I sized up to wear over thick and oversized sweaters)

Fit: TTS

Black Joggers

Sale: $42  ||  After Sale: $65

Review: These joggers are iconic. They sell out almost every year and for good reason. The fabric is so soft that you feel like you could melt in them. They come in 3 different colors but I grabbed black for ultimate versatility.

Size: S

Fit: TTS


Ways to Style It

Joggers S || T-Shirt XS || Cardigan Coat XXS (runs large) || Sneakers TTS || White Blazer 2 (runs large) || Athletic Jacket M (runs small)


Faux Leather Shorts

Sale: $36  ||  After Sale: $56

Review: Leather shorts are perfect for transitioning into fall. I love these because they have an elastic waistband, functional pockets, and they’re a flattering length without being too short.

Size: 2 US

Fit: TTS


Ways to Style It

Faux Leather Shorts 2 || White Blazer 2 (runs large) || Loafers (run large) || Similar Poncho O/S || Knee High Boot TTS || Plaid Blazer Coat XS


Plaid Shacket

Sale: $117  ||  After Sale: $175

Review: Fall is simply not fall without a shacket. I love that they feel like outerwear but are a bit more fun than a typical jacket. This was my favorite one from the sale this year because the pattern and color way are perfect for my neutral fall wardrobe. It has functional pockets and snaps in front for easy wear.

Size: 00/0 (XS)

Fit: Runs large

Similar: BlankNYC Shacket 

Ways to Style It

Plaid Shacket 00/0 (runs large) || Beige Cashmere Crewneck M (sized up for oversized fit) || Jeans 26 (run small) || Cream Booties TTS || Hat || Black Cashmere Crewneck XS || Similar Coated Denim ||  Beige Suede Boots || Ribbed Cashmere Sweater S || Ecru Denim 26, similar here || Black Booties TTS


Spanx Ponte Pants

Sale: $91  ||  After Sale: $138

Review: A great pair of black pants that can be worn to work are always worth investing in. These ones from Spanx are incredibly flattering and comfortable yet still look polished and chic. They are so versatile and can easily be worn year round.

Size: XS

Fit: Slightly Small through waist

Ways to Style It

Spanx Ponte Pants XS || Sleeveless Sweater XS || Loafers (run large) || Plaid Blazer Coat XS || Wrap Blouse XS || Flats TTS


Leather Jacket

Sale: $329  ||  After Sale: $529

Review: By far one of my most worn closet staples is a genuine leather jacket. The price point is quite the splurge but the cost per wear is near nothing. I love throwing mine on with sweats to elevate a travel look, with a feminine dress to add some edge, or with a sweater and jeans for a cool and casual look. The outfit possibilities are endless! The material will last forever and actually keep you warm unlike synthetic alternatives.

Size: 2 US

Fit: Runs small – size up for layering

Similar: Sam Edelman Genuine Leather Jacket, Topshop FAUX Leather Jacket

Ways to Style It

Leather Jacket 2 US (runs small, size up two for relaxed fit) || T-Shirt XS || Joggers S || Sneakers TTS || Sweater Dress XS || Similar Knee High Boots || Cashmere Crewneck Sweater XS || Straight Leg Jeans 25 || Black Booties TTS
