Team LIY

The 2024 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 Consider THIS your NSale headquarters, with all the content in one spot

PSS 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 4th 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 8/4, 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. BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE — to see even more #NSALE looks from the team, be sure to check out our lookbook for even more goodness!
  6. Grab the Nordstrom app for the easiest shopping experience AND instant restock alerts when you add to your wish list!

MISSES

Erin’s Misses [5’4” Size 2/4 or S]

Treasure & Bond Jacket [size down, wearing XS]

Why it’s a miss: There wasn’t anything wrong with this jacket, I just didn’t love it on me. It was more oversized than I had anticipated, but overall it was a very soft fabric.

Zella Jacket [size up if in between, wearing small] // Zella Live In Leggings [true to size, wearing small] // Nike Sneakers

Why it’s a miss: I was so excited about this jacket leading up to the sale, but then I put it on and just didn’t love it. I don’t know if it was too bulky or what but it just didn’t vibe with me.

Steph’s Misses [5’4″ Size 10/12 or M/L]

Thread and Supply Vest [size up, wearing in large] // Zella Live in Leggings [size up if between, wearing in large] // Nike Air Max 90 Sneaker [size up .5]

Hannah’s Misses [5’2” Size 2/4 or XS/S]

Avec Les Filles Double Breasted Trench Coat with Dickey [size down, wearing in XS] // Steve Madden Mary Jane Mules [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I don’t know what to really say about this one lol Maybe don’t buy this… OR if you’re super tall, try it!!

Cassidy’s Misses [5’4” Size 0/2 or XS/S]

Patchwork Double Breasted Blaze [size down if in between, wearing in size small] // Rib Sleeveless Sweater [size down if in between, wearing in size small] // KUT from the Kloth Raw Crop Hem  [size down at least one, wearing 0] // Clemens Chelsea Boot [size down .5 if in between, wearing in size 7.5]

Why it’s a miss: This jacket just felt a little too oversized for me. I LOVED the pattern/print but I don’t think it’s something I would reach for often in my closet.

Claire’s Misses [5’5″ size M/L or 8/10]

Free People Pullover [True to size, wearing medium] // Zella Leggings [size up if in between]

Why it’s a miss: This is a really nice pullover, but I have a VERY similar one from Amazon for half the price! It wasn’t worth the splurge to me.

Devon’s Misses [5’8″ size S or 2]

Zella Hybrid Jacket [true to size, wearing small] // Zella Biker Shorts [size up if in between, wearing medium] // On Cloud X 3 Shoe [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I had high hopes for this jacket, but it was a major miss for me. It was not comfortable and did not fit my body right.
