Nordstrom’s clearance sale may be called “Summer,” but it’s chock full of goodies that one could wear well into the Fall and beyond. With prices up to 40% off now is a terrific time to shop the clearance, which ends on Sunday!
My picks? There are many. To begin, here are some clothing picks sure to please you well into the coming seasons…
Let’s begin with some great workwear options that have been marked down.
I know that very few people wear suits any more but I absolutely love the Anne Klein Stretch Denim Suit because the pieces work so well either separately or together! The Stretch Denim Suit Skirt (now $50) runs true to size and has slight give to it; the Slim Stretch Denim Suit Pants (now $60) ran tight around my hips so I sized up. Unfortunately the blazer has sold out at Nordstrom, but luckily the same blazer is available at Macy’s, where it’s also on sale! I found the blazer to run true to size.
Another versatile workwear piece that I love is the Vince Camuto Crepe A-Line Dress (now $89), which comes in a range of colors in both regular and petite sizes. I own it in the Sea Blue myself which is a warm jewel-toned teal that looks great with my pale-skin-dark-hair-light-eyes combination. I’m also rather enamored of the Azalea and Magenta colors. Some reviewers have noted this dress runs tight through the arms which was not an issue for me — I went with my regular size. I like to wear the dress with these sandals (not on sale but already a great price) and a necklace similar to this one in pink (on sale!), which compliments the teal well.
Though my office has a very casual dress code, when clients come to visit I do like to add a touch of extra professionalism to my outfit. So this Olivia Moon Knit Blazer (now $60) has been a great buy for me! I have it in the black (which reads as a dark grey to me). It’s mediumweight and the knit material keeps it from feeling too stodgy. My favorite items to pair it with are a basic white tee like the Caslon Relaxed Slub Knit U-Neck Tee ($25, not on sale) in white, the AG ‘The Legging’ Ankle Jeans (10 Years Recreation) (now $165), the Ivanka Trump ‘Boni’ Pointy Toe Pump (now $55) in black and the Panacea Spike Collar Necklace (now $21).
Speaking of those AG ‘The Legging’ Ankle Jeans (10 Years Recreation) (now $165) I just mentioned above, I get asked all the time about the AG Legging Jean pictured above, which is showing up on Anthropologie’s website right now often in product photo outfits. Unfortunately, those jeans are from 2 years ago and no longer available (except in very limited sizes on the AG website and via Amazon). The AG ‘The Legging’ Ankle Jeans (10 Years Recreation) (now $165) is a very close jean to these sold out AGs!
Other good destroyed jean options include the Paige ‘Verdugo’ Undone Hem Crop Jeans (Slate Black) (now $134), the Free People Destroyed Skinny Jeans (now $47) and the Lucky Brand ‘Lolita’ Distressed Stretch Skinny Jeans (Morrison) (now $60).
Looking for jeans with no distressing? The Current/Elliott ‘The Stiletto’ Skinny Jeans (Hawk) (now $133), Hudson Jeans ‘Lilly’ Mid Rise Skinny Jeans (now $140), Joe’s ‘Honey’ Curvy Skinny Jeans (Cici) (now $100), KUT from the Kloth ‘Stevie’ Stretch Straight Leg Jeans (Limitless) (now $45), 7 For All Mankind ‘Kimmie’ Straight Leg Jeans (now $134) and Free People ‘Peyton’ High Rise Skinny Jeans (now $47) all look great!
A few more versatile picks from the sale include the Barefoot Dreams Cable Knit Drape Front Cardigan (now $99) which I took the S/M in; the cute Bobeau Ruffled Sleeveless Peplum Top (now $27) which works well under cardis or on its own and runs TTS; the Ten Sixty Sherman Stripe Ribbed Mock Neck Tank (now $21) which would make a sleek layering piece and the Paige ‘Deandra’ Embroidered Cotton Top (now $130) which is a beautiful cotton button-down, to round out tops.
There is oh so much more great stuff in this sale! (I’m totally drooling over this Burberry Coat for instance.) More picks on the way this weekend. Have you shopped the Nordstrom Summer Clearance Sale yet?
