Shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale means getting great looks at a great price. You deserve a wardrobe as stand-out as your summer, and this sale—which begins on July 19 (though is accessible to cardmembers now) and runs through August 4—has some chic deals if you know where to look.
Here are some of the best, boldest buys for women—all under $100:
ASTR the Label Short Sleeve Jacquard Top
This shirt, in a poppy red, is both bright and practical—it’s the perfect partner during a day of errands or a night out on the town. If you look carefully, you can spot the leopard pattern that makes it trendy but timeless, thus able to outlive the fad. With breezy sleeves and an elastic crop, it’s got bohemian-chic energy deserving of the highest of waistlines and skinniest stilettos; wear it with gold jewelry (and the slip skirt below) to highlight your glowing summer skin.
Something Navy Midi Slip Skirt
This will be the one skirt you slip into time and again; falling loosely at your calves, it’s adaptable enough to be paired with shoes of all heights, which is not something every midi can say. Available in two colors—a romantic, creamy white and a patterned chocolate—it can be dressed down with a plain T-shirt and sneakers or dressed up with a collared blouse. On days that require a little more emphasis, check out the chocolate skirt’s matching reversible jacket for a sweet retro vibe.
Marc Fisher LTD Unique Bootie
These boots were made for more than just walking; they seem destined for riding—specifically, riding a super cool motorbike. In a smooth red leather, they’re ultra-modern, while the slope of the shaft gives them an architectural edge. Add them to bright sundresses or minimalist outfits that need a pop of color and wear a swipe of red lipstick to match. The shoe is also available in black, blush and brown if you’re feeling more neutral.
Halogen Turtleneck Sweater
Who says you have to wait to buy next season’s styles? With this candy-colored turtleneck, you’ll be glad you had the foresight to buy it now, especially since it’s on sale. Once you get your hands on its super soft, stretchy fabric, you’ll start looking for any excuse to wear it regardless of the heat (office AC, anyone?). The range of shades will provide limitless outfits—pair it with blue jeans or tuck it into a silky skirt for a fashion-forward look.
Topshop Utility Midi Skirt
Pink is always in season. The same goes for the midi-skirt, making this piece a sartorial double whammy. With deep side pockets giving it structure and a slit for mobility, it elevates old-school utilitarian shapes and becomes a skirt worthy of the fiercest power stance. You can let it stand on its own with a muted top, or raise it to the nth degree by trying on an oversized, textured blouse in a similar bright tone.
Topshop Double Breasted Plaid Blazer
If you’re seeking a statement neutral—because such oxymorons exist and your closet needs some—plaid is the best place to start. The classic pattern is as versatile as a basic solid and double the fun, as this double-breasted blazer demonstrates. With tortoise buttons and a relaxed fit, it’s easy to throw on when you want to add a dash of masculinity to your outfit. The light gray is bright enough for summer and dark enough for fall, so it’s destined to be worn in all in-between weather. Button both sides and add dark jeans underneath to take the look into the evening.
Chinese Laundry Theresa Platform Sandal
If it’s been a while since you last scream-sang the lyrics of Mamma Mia, you better start warming up your vocal cords now—these gold platforms will have you seeking out every ’70s-themed party and then some. With a thick heel minimizing any chances of injury on the dance floor, they’re the best date to nights out; plus, the groovy color will easily fit with your pre-existing after-dark wardrobe, like ripped black jeans and a silky top. Think gold is better left in the Federal Reserve? It’s also available in black, nude, gray and a cherry red.
