What To Buy In The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale [TOP 100 PICKS]!

July 12, 2018


Erin Schrader

Cue the confetti, pop the champagne bottles and get those online shoppin’ fingers READY, it’s go time baby! The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just kicked off for early access and believe me, it’s GOOD. We’re talkin’ I’m a little nervous about if my online shopping cart can hold the weight of everything in it. If you have early access, [this means you have a Nordstrom debit or credit card] you are able to start shopping TODAY! If you don’t have a card, no worries, you can still look at the entire sale, add things to your shopping bag or wish list and simply check out next Friday (July 20th) at the sale price!

Because this sale is completely overwhelming [we are talking thousands of BRAND NEW items for fall/winter at prices up to 40% off!] I thought I would make things a little simpler on you by scrolling through each and every item and putting together a complete list of the best of the best! Below are my top 100 picks from the sale [I literally looked through every.single.item and yes, my eyes are burning] for you to shop below! While today primarily covers women’s fashion, over the next few weeks expect to see a ton of blog posts covering top picks from men’s, home, beauty, kids and more [for now, you can view our top picks in these categories by clicking on the NSALE menu at the top of this blog]! Before we jump in a few things to note…

Shopping tips for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: 

  1. Click around, find your favorites and add everything you love to your shopping bag or wish list. You can view the entire sale here!
  2. Keep in mind when shopping the sale that Nordstrom does offer free shipping and free returns all of the time! Because of this, I will sometimes order two different sizes or two different colors to see which one fits and looks the best and then return the ones I don’t want. They make it super easy by including a prepaid return label with each order so that you can simply put it back in the box it came in and send it back – you simply drop it off at your local post office and don’t have to wait in line to do so! It’s SO easy!
  3. While the sale goes until August 5th, I encourage you to shop early as sizes, colors, and items will disappear FAST! If something was out of stock that you wanted, or it currently isn’t available in your size or color keep checking back as things are constantly getting restocked [we will do constant restock alerts over on Facebook and in our Insiders NSale Group]! After August 5th, everything will be back at full retail price so stock up now before it’s too late!
  4. Be sure to join our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Insiders Group on Facebook where we will be posting outfit photos with sizing info, restock alerts, giveaways and so much more. Think of the Facebook page as the megacenter for all Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coverage!
  5. HAVE FUN!

And now, for the real fun and point of this post — my top 100 picks from the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Come back tomorrow where I’ll spill all of the details on what I actually purchased.
