The 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here, and we’ve been elbow deep in trying the pieces so you don’t have to! We’re sharing what was a hit and what was more of a swing and a miss in today’s post, specifically for tops and sweaters! Don’t forget to join the LIY Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Facebook Group where there are nightly giveaways happening!

PS You can check out Erin’s FULL Hit’s & Misses blog post in one spot right here!

PSS Consider THIS your NSale headquarters, with all the content in one spot!

While we’re hitting publish today on this post, we still have a decent amount of items to try on. With that being said, we will be updating this blog post often with new hits & misses so keep checking back! 

If you have been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale already, you may have missed a thing or two, but have no fear – you have until July 31st to purchase the products at a major discount. After that, prices will go back up to normal.

ANNIVERSARY SALE SHOPPING TIPS & TRICKS

  1. Anything that you love and want for yourself, add to your wish list and check out once the sale is live for your card level [reminder: if you don’t have a card, the public sale starts July 15th]! If it isn’t currently available in your size and color preference, things are always coming in and out of stock, so check back often!
  2. Remember that Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns! Because of this, I would recommend ordering two sizes on things you are unsure of, to make sure that you can get it at the sale price and return the one that doesn’t work!
  3. Some of the items I mention may currently be out of stock, but check back often for restocks! We’ll also be notifying you of restocks over on our Facebook page and #NSALE group [highly recommend joining the group for a ton of helpful info and nightly giveaways!] 
  4. Keep in mind that while the sale lasts until 7/31, things go quick so don’t be like N*Sync and have to say “bye, bye, bye” to everything before it’s gone – shop early!
  5. If there’s anything I didn’t cover and you still have questions, ask away below and I’ll answer right here so check back! For more Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts, click here!

MISSES

Erin’s Misses

Plaid Shirt Jacket • BP [true to size, wearing in small] // Miller Water Resistant Chelsea Boot • Caslon [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I felt quite lumberjack-like in this one! Not my favorite.

Sun Dazed Slub Cotton Blend Sweater • Billabong [true to size, wearing in small] // Good Legs Raw Hem High Waist Cigarette Leg Jeans • Good American [true to size, wearing in 4] // Dolce Vita Sandals [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: This was way shorter and boxier than I was expecting, not flattering on me!

Women’s Dare to Dream Rib Cotton Blend Cardigan • Free People [size down one, wearing in XS] // Caslon Thermal Tee [true to size, wearing in small] // Kut from the Kloth Fab Ab Jeans [size down if in between, wearing in 2] // Chaya Pointed Toe Bootie • Steve Madden [size up .5]

Why it’s a miss: It felt too bulky for me! While I don’t mind the look of it, it seemed to have a lot of extra volume in the arms and well, I’m not always lookin’ for that 😉

Puff Sleeve Square Neck Sweater • Halogen [size down if in between, wearing in XS] // Monroe High Waist Slim Cigarette Jeans • Pistola Denim [true to size, wearing in 27] // Chaya Pointed Toe Bootie • Steve Madden [size up .5]

Why it’s a miss: There was nothing comfortable to me about this sweater. The neck seemed too big, the body seemed too short, it was a total pass for me!

Long Sleeve Thermal Knit Top • Treasure & Bond [size up, wearing in small and too small] // Dre Low Rise Slim Boyfriend Jeans • Rag & Bone [true to size, wearing in 27] // Ethyl Low Top Sneaker • Sam Edelman [true to size]

Note: I did not love the fit of this at all!

Steph’s Misses

MISS: Thread & Supply Cotton Corduroy Shirt Jacket

Thread & Supply Cotton Corduroy Shirt Jacket [Size down, wearing in L in Chocolate Brown] / Zella High Waist Studio Lite Pocket 7/8 Leggings [TTS, wearing in M] / BP Sleepy Lounge Tee [Size down, wearing in S] / Hoff Art Royal Mile Sneaker [TTS]

This shirt jacket is SUPER comfortable, it’s just way too big in this current size! I may size down to Medium and reorder because I do like the idea of it and how it looks with my shoes!

MISS: V-Neck Wool & Cashmere Poncho

V-Neck Wool & Cashmere Poncho [One Size / Olive Dark Heather] 

MISS: Free People Owen Thermal

Free People Owen Thermal [Size Down, wearing in Small]

MISS: Free People Dare to Dream

Free People Dare to Dream [Size Down, wearing in Medium]

I cannot get over how heavy this cardigan was!

Katy’s Misses

MISS: Topshop Polo Sweater 

Topshop Polo Sweater [sized up for pregnancy, wearing Small] // Zella High Waisted Live In Leggings [sized up for pregnancy, wearing Small] // Blondo Booties [size down .5] 

Personally, this sweater is a miss for me just because it felt boxy and unflattering! 

MISS: Topshop Long Sleeve Polo

Topshop Long Sleeve Polo [size up one] // Express Boyfriend Jeans [size down] // Toms Platform Wedge Sandal [true to size]

This top is a miss simply because I am being picky with what I truly love these days, and didn’t absolutely love it when I put it on! I think overall it’s a cute, ribbed top though!

MISS: BP Rib Crop Sweater

BP Rib Crop Sweater [size up] // Spanx Faux Leather Leggings [size up one] // Dolce Vita Sneakers [size down .5]

I LOVE the color of this sweater and HELLO it’s on sale for $10 but unfortunately the cropped look during pregnancy made this a miss for me.

MISS: BP Thermal Henley

BP Thermal Henley [sized up] // Spanx Faux Leather Leggings [size up one] // Nike Platform Sneaker [size down .5]

The crop, the boxiness, it was all just a no for me with this tee.

Claire’s Misses

MISS: Free People Off the Shoulder Top

Free People Off the Shoulder Top [size up one, wearing medium but could do large] // Good American Denim [size up if in between – no stretch] // Mules [size up .5 if in between] 

I wanted to love this top, but it kept sliding up and wouldn’t stay in place around my broad shoulders. If you decide to try it, size up if in between! 

MISS: Madewell Henley Sweater

Madewell Henley Sweater [runs large size down if in between]  // Good American Denim [size up if in between – no stretch] // Mules [size up .5 if in between] 

Nothing wrong with this sweater, it just didn’t “wow!” me! It runs large and I found the oversized fit slightly unflattering and seemed to add extra weight to my figure!

Hannah’s Misses

MISS: Zella Relaxed Long Sleeve Shirt

Zella Relaxed Long Sleeve Shirt [size down one, wearing in XS] // Nike Dri Fit Shorts [Size up if in between, wearing in Medium] // Kut from the Kloth Exposed Button Jeans [size down if in between] // Sperry Duck Boots [true to size]

While this one is a great basic that can be worn with activewear and denim, it was too oversized and long for my personal preference!

MISS: French Connection Square Neck Sweater

French Connection Square Neck Sweater [wearing XS] // Kut from the Kloth Donna Fab Ab Raw Hem Skinny Jeans [TTS, wearing in Petite length for 5’2”] // Steve Madden Mules [TTS] 

The fit of this top was way off… it was too short, the square neck didn’t even cover my bra and I had to keep adjusting it… 

MISS: Halogen Funnel Neck Top

Halogen Funnel Neck Top [Size up if in between, wearing in XS but need a Small] // Kut from the Kloth Donna Fab Ab Raw Hem Skinny Jeans [TTS, wearing in Petite length for 5’2”]

While the material was stretchy, this top was WAY too fitted for my liking and I felt very sucked in and like I couldn’t get out of it!

MISS: Madewell Square Neck Puff Sleeve Top

Madewell Square Neck Puff Sleeve Top [TTS, wearing in XS] // Kut from the Kloth Fab Ab Jeans [TTS, wearing in Petite length for 5’2”] // Steve Madden Mules [TTS] 

I don’t know what is happening with this top but it’s almost like the seam where the sleeve and body of this top meet is in the wrong plays!

MISS: Open Edit Balloon Sleeve Top

Open Edit Balloon Sleeve Top [TTS, wearing in XS] // Kut from the Kloth Fab Ab Jeans [TTS, wearing in Petite length for 5’2”

MISS: French Connection Turtleneck Sweater Vest

French Connection Turtleneck Sweater Vest [TTS, wearing in XS] // Kut from the Kloth Fab Ab Jeans [TTS, wearing in Petite length for 5’2”] // Steve Madden Mules [TTS]

The arm holes were WAY too big! It might be cute with a lace bralette but I didn’t’ love it enough to try!

Cassidy’s Misses

MISS: Rails Pastel Button Up Sweater

Rails Pastel Button Up Sweater [TTS] / PAIGE High Waist Straight Jean [TTS]

I liked this sweater, but I didn’t LOVE it. For the price tag, I wanted to LOVE it. 

MISS: Free People Button Up Shirt

Free People Button Up Shirt [TTS] / MOTHER Raw Hem Ankle Jean [TTS – Bought these last year and love them!]

MISS: Madewell Oversized Button Up Shirt

Madewell Oversized Button Up Shirt [TTS] / IETS Frans Tank Top [TTS] 

Again, I just didn’t love it and the tank had zero stretch! 

Macy’s Misses

MISS: Belmont Donegal Mock Neck Sweater

Belmont Donegal Mock Neck Sweater [TTS] /  KUT from the Kloth [TTS, wearing in Petite]/ Booties [TTS]

I really liked this sweater, but wanted to love it for the price. It’s super cute, but I found the material to be a little itchy/scratchy.
