The 2023 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 jackets and outerwear! 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!
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 August 6th to purchase the products at a major discount. After that, prices will go back up to normal.
ANNIVERSARY SALE SHOPPING TIPS & TRICKS
- 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 17th]! 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!
- 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!
- 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!]
- Keep in mind that while the sale lasts until 8/6, 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!
- 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!

Heather [6′, Size Small or 4]
Thread & Supply Shacket [true to size]
Heather here! Grab this now for the fall and winter (or wear it today to a hockey game like me)! This shacket is super cozy, great length in the arms for my tall girl friends. I think it looks great buttoned up or left open. It kept me warm at my son’s hockey game today at the ice rink! Great staple to snag from the sale!
Lisa’s Hits [5’3″, Size S]
Loving my Nsale find! This bright pop of pink is going to be much needed on those dreary fall and winter days. I would suggest sizing up if you are wanting to wear with bulkier items like sweaters. Otherwise, this beautiful coat is TTS.
Erin’s Misses [5’4″, Size S or 2/4]
Miss: BCBG Coat
Hannah’s Misses [5’2″, Size XS, 0 or 2 in Bottoms]
No matter how I styled this it was just BAD… Not worth the money in my opinion!
Miss: BP. Fleece Jacket
I wanted to love this jacket and granted it was WAY too small, should have tried a different size! But it was pretty bulky and not flattering in my opinion!
Katy’s Misses [5’4″, Size XS, S or 2]
While I love the outdoorsy and comfy look of this pullover, it just felt too bulky in person!
Zella Hybrid Ventilated Hooded Jacket [size up if in between, wearing small] // Zella Studio Luxe High Waist Flare Ankle Pants [size up if in between, wearing small] // Nike Max SYSTM Sneaker [true to size, wearing 8]
While I loved the overall look of this jacket I didn’t love the “frill” look when it was zipped and pulled!
Claire’s Misses [5’5″, size 10 or Medium/Large]
I was so excited about this jacket, but didn’t love the way the mesh area draped once it was on and didn’t know what to do with the ties in the front! It just didn’t turn out the way I envisioned it. Pass for me!
MISS: Zella Quilted Jacket
While I loved the idea of this jacket, the white version felt a little bit like a lab coat on. If you like the quilted look, give the black version a try!
Love the look, hate the feel. This shacket is darling for Fall, but it was itchy, stiff, and felt a little boxy. There are better shacket options in the sale! If you decide to give it a whirl, I would suggest a long sleeve shirt for layering!
Jen’s Misses [5’7″, size M in tops]
I really wanted to love this one … but it was just a little too much all on top from material to pattern!
Macy’s Misses [4’11”, size 000/00 or XXS/XS]
Miss: Corduroy Jacket
Miss: Oversize Fleece Jacket
