The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now live to the public and anyone can shop, whether you’re a Nordstrom Cardholder or not. Here are my tried and true must-buys from the sale.

Have you checked out the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (I have a huge round-up of favorites HERE)?? It’s a huge sale of things that are coming out for next season. Usually a sale happens at the end of the season, but this is different because the items go on sale at the beginning of the season.

There are lots of good pieces in the sale, and Nordstrom always has lots of good basics and closet essentials. But today I want to narrow down your shopping list by showing you my top ten favorites from the sale. These are all items I’ve purchased in the past and have loved and worn year after year. They are my tried and true favorites.

Some of them have been updated over the years, so if it’s slightly different than the version I have been using and loving, I’ll share that in the details.

Top Ten Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Buys 

1. Chelsea Boots

  • These boots are TRUE TO SIZE. Get your normal shoe size. They will be stiff for the first few wears.

These boots are my number one must-buy from the sale. I bought the original version of these back in January 2021 and have worn them about a million times since then. They are the perfect boot that you’ll wear all fall and winter long. The ones in the Anniversary Sale right now are the updated version of my original pair. They added a side zipper, but besides that, they’re basically identical.

They are slim in the shaft so they don’t give you a bulky ankle, they have a perfect almond toe, and they’re extremely comfortable. They also work for tall, petite, and girls with wide feet. They’re true to size, and work even with thick socks during the winter.

They take a few wears to break in, but they soften up after that and they’re extremely comfortable. I have worn them walking miles and miles all over New York City, Chicago, Paris, and many other cities, and have never had any issues.

The original ones were discontinued last year and have been out of stock for almost a year, but somehow they got re-stocked last week and are the same price at Nordstrom Rack as they are in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so you can choose between the old version which has elastic on the shaft, or the new version that has a side zipper. I heard from a reader last week that she has both the zipper and non-zipper version and reaches for the zipper version more now since they’re easier to get on and off. So that’s one opinion — take it or leave it!

But DEFINITELY take advantage of these boots during the sale.

A FEW POSTS THAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL FOR STYLING YOUR CHELSEA BOOTS:

2. Zella Joggers

  • These are true to size. I wear a size XS.

I’ve had these joggers for a few years, and found them after trying like 20 different highly rated pairs of black joggers. These were the CLEAR winner.

They are so comfortable, have a great ankle length, and a comfortable drawstring waist. They’re made out of athletic material that has great rebound so you don’t get saggy knees or booty after a few hours of wearing.

They are a great alternative to leggings or jeans, and I especially love them for travel.

A FEW POSTS THAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL FOR STYLING YOUR BLACK JOGGERS:

3. Natori Dream Bra

  • True to size. Get your normal bra size.

I heard amazing things about Natori bras for years, so finally I bought one two years ago during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale when they were discounted. I tried a few styles from this brand, and there was one clear winner in the bunch, and it was THIS ONE.

Once I put it on and started wearing it, I quickly ditched all my other bras. These are so comfortable, and very supportive. Highly recommend grabbing one or two while they’re on sale, since normally they’re pretty pricey!

4. Zella Leggings

  • True to size. I wear a size XS. If you’re in between sizes, size down!

These leggings have been a long time favorite. They’re a great pair of leggings that you can wear to exercise, but also wear with sweaters and tees during the year.

They’re a nice soft, brushed athletic fabric, so they aren’t shiny and look too athletic.

They also have a really high waist that holds everything in, and they’re long so they’re great for tall girls. If you’re shorter, use THIS TECHNIQUE to shorten them, or get them hemmed.

The only downside for lots of you with these leggings it that they don’t have pockets, but the new LUXE version that launched last year has pockets and is a little more of a luxe fabric. It’s slightly more expensive, but it’s a fantastic legging.

5. Pillow Talk Lip Kit

Of all the beauty items in the sale, this lip kit is my very favorite. It’s a lip kit in the perfect neutral color, and is perfect for everyday. It comes with a pencil, lipstick, and gloss, and it’s a must have for me!

You can see how I apply it right here!

6. Moonlight Pajamas

  • These run a little big. I’m wearing an XS.

These are some of my all time favorite pajamas. They are so incredibly soft and luxe feeling, and they last for years.

I buy myself a new pair every year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and now I have a pretty big selection cause they stay in such great condition.

They come in a few style options — long sleeve with long pants (I’d recommend sizing up in these if you’re taller cause the pants in an XS are a little short on my 5’6″ height), short sleeve with cropped pants (that’s what I’m wearing above), long sleeve with short shorts, and short sleeve with shorts, so you’ve got lots of options!

This brand also has a ribbed pajamas set, but I tried it on in store and it felt cheap. Definitely not the same quality and luxe feel of the pair I’m wearing above.

7. Natori Sports Bra

  • runs TTS – get your normal bra size! I wear a 34C.

I bought these sports bras last year during the Anniversary Sale cause I was looking for a sports bra that clasped in the back and didn’t have those stupid pads that fall out or fold over in the wash.

These were a MAJOR WIN and quickly because my favorite sports bra.

They have underwire so they’re super supportive, but you honestly can’t even feel the underwire! They are so comfy. The straps are also super soft and thick and stretchy so they don’t cut into your shoulders while you work out. And the clasp in the back makes them really easy to pull off after a workout.

I washed and worn them dozens of times since I bought them last year and they are still in great condition. If you’ve been looking for a good sports bra, look no further!

8. Good American Jeans

  • Run big, size down one size. I’m wearing a size 0/25, and my normal jeans size is a 26.

I bought these jeans two years ago during the sale and still have and wear them ALL THE TIME. They’re sturdy material, fit so well (especially in the waist) and they’re a perfect dark denim.

They’re also fitted nicely all the way down the leg so they fit well into boots, or you can tuck them into taller socks when wearing ankle boots.

This WIT AND WISDOM pair is another good option in a dark wash, and the elastic waistband makes them super comfortable and flexible if you’re postpartum, are prone to bloating, or are just in a phase of your life that your size is fluctuating. They also come in BLACK!

9. Layering Tee

  • Runs true to size. I’m in a size XS.

This long sleeve white tee is a fantastic closet basic that’s super affordable and so luxurious and comfy. It’s a great white tee that you can wear by itself or layer with a sweater or tunic or poncho or shawl in the fall and winter.

It comes in a few colors and is definitely a good closet staple. Just a heads up, the white is pretty thin and slightly sheer.

If you’re looking for a short sleeve version that is NOT sheer, THIS TEE is the ultimate. It’s double lined so it’s totally opaque and it’s a great tee you can wear with jeans or a skirt or dress pants or anything.

10. Activewear Jacket

  • Runs TTS. I wear a size XS, which is my normal jacket size.

This jacket is the perfect lightweight jacket to wear during the cooler month for the gym or running. I have to wear something warmer in the winter, but this jacket is perfect for fall and spring when you need a layer but don’t want anything bulky.

It’s super sleek and fitted so it doesn’t flap around and bother you, and it has pockets and thumb holes.

It’s fantastic quality and I love that it’s not bulky or oversized. Highly recommend for your colder weather workouts.

The Nordstrom sale can be totally overwhelming, so I hope this is helpful to show you my tried and true favorites!
