- Nordstrom's most popular sale of the year is back
- 100+ new brands this year, plus 300+ Beauty Exclusives
Just like that, the highly anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary sale for 2021 is HERE! Early Access began on July 12 or July 16 for select Nordy Club cardmembers, but now it’s time for the public access which begins Wednesday July 28 and runs through Sunday August 8. The Anniversary Sale is Nordstrom’s most popular sale of the year and features savings on new arrivals from the best brands including clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty and home. The NSale always feels like Christmas in July because you get to buy the upcoming season items for a fraction of its retail price. If you’ve not had a chance to drop some items in your cart with early access, you’ve probably been checking and rechecking the site for the items to add to your wishlist and buy when its time (hopefully still in stock). Been chillin in sweats all 2021 WFH and heading back to the office soon, it’s time to refresh the closet. Heading off to grad or business school? you’ll definitely want to grab a few things to add to your closet. If you’ve been meaning to buy a few more pairs of underwear, now might be the time to do so. Retail therapy is great but if your bank account is looking lean, no need to go broke trying to stunt, there are still some things under $50 you can grab. Without too much talking, here are my picks (apparel, home, beauty bags & sunnies, Mens) from the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I like multi-use comfort pieces when it comes to fashion so I am allover rib knit dresses cause they can be dressed down and very up.
Let’s start with the tough news, due to early access starting off July 16, some of the highly coveted items like Olaplex are now sold out and no telling if they will be stocked when public access opens up. That being said, Nordstroms is adding 100+ new brands like Outdoor Research, IVL Collection, Club Monaco, Dyson, La Ligne, Jenni Kayne, Reiss, Cinq et Sept, Moncler, as well as customer favorites, Nike, UGG, Good American, Veronica Beard, Barefoot Dreams, Nécessaire, Zella, Treasure & Bond, Vince, Le Labo, Malin + Goetz, Dior, Jo Malone, Bobbi Brown, Nars, Tom Ford, Olaplex, Kiehl’s Since 185 and more to the sale this year, so there’s A TON of other items that are top tier you can still snag but as always, in order not to have shoppers regret (oh I loathe it!) add it and buy it, last last you’ll return it if it doesn’t fit or work the way you want it to.
