We are officially one week out until early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unlocked. Each year Nordstrom releases the items that are a part of the sale early so that you can browse around and save items to your wishlist. I took a peak at this year’s items and they are so good! I’m so excited to share my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview picks with you below. A few brands were even kind enough to send me some of the items before hand so that the Loverly Grey community could get a sneak peak at a few styled looks. A few of the pieces you see are from last year’s sale, so I’ll be linking this year’s version.
In case you are new to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I’m sharing all my shopping tips, along with key dates and more in my Ultimate Guide to the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post here! I also did an Instagram Live recently answering all your questions about the sale. You can watch it HERE!
Boots + Booties – These are a great investment piece to grab during the sale. I have a few pairs or both ankle booties and knee high boots that I love and wear constantly throughout fall and winter. The Steve Madden booties are back if you didn’t grab a pair last year! I’m also loving this year’s Sam Edelman knee high boots in the color sesame.
Faux Leather Leggings – Highly suggest grabbing a pair of Spanx faux leather leggings. I’ve been wearing Spanx leggings for a few years now and love them. I get my normal workout leggings size, small. These are a wardrobe staple that you can pair with everything from over sized graphic tees to chunky sweaters or even heels and a nice top for a date night!
Sweaters – One of my favorite items to stock up on is sweaters and cardigans. This year I have my eye on this Madewell cardigan and and this BB Dakota Cardigan as well. I’m always a fan of the oversized Free People Sweaters as well. The Nordstrom made brand, Caslon, always has great quality pieces as well. I’m loving this one!
Sneakers – This is a great time to stock up on sneakers. I bought a pair of Addidas running shoes last year and still wear them all the time. This year I plan to grab another pair of UltraBoosts and the On Cloud Running Shoe. I prefer to size up half a size than my normal in my running shoes.
Zella Leggings – The Live In Leggings have become a FAVORITE of mine! I prefer the 7/8 length leggings. If you are pregnant, I highly recommend the maternity option. They were my favorite maternity leggings during both pregnancies. You want to get your normal legging size when purchasing the maternity option. They are also great for those post-partum days too!
Denim – There are tons of great designer denim at a great price. I am loving the Good American options and I always grab a pair of Wit & Wisdom jeans. I have a pair that I picked up last year and wore them non stop. They were great for everyday wear.
Barefoot Dreams – I bought my first Barefoot Dreams Blanket two years ago and was OBSESSED! They are 100% worth the hype and are SO SOFT!! This blanket is still pricey but is one that will last forever! It would make a great gift if you want to stock up for the holidays. They have great cardigans and cozy items that you won’t want to miss too!
Coats/Jackets – I usually buy one or two jackets from the Nordstrom Sale that last me the next year or two. If you on the hunt for work wear, they also have a ton of great blazer options too!
Beauty – This is a category that you can’t forget about. I am always pleasantly surprised with their selection and tend to stock up on everyday essentials and gifts for others. Things like the Living Proof bundles are such a good deal. I also like to pick up a few Slip silk pillow cases to have as gifts when I need them throughout the year!
