Not to be outdone by any other retailer, Nordstrom has added a beautiful bounty of new items to its sale section at up to 40% off. Plenty of the markdowns are Summer leftovers but just a little bit of hunting reveals Fall favorites that have been marked down too. You’ll find everything from trendy items like the Ruffle Sleeve Sweater (now $42, above and in 4 colors) to classic pieces like the Belted Fit & Flare Dress (now $77).
For me many of the new markdown delights are in dresses, where plenty of layering-ready pieces await. I can easily see wearing a blazer, long cardigan or sweater over the likes of the gorgeous white-on-black printed High Neck Embroidered Midi Dress (now $45) or the similarly shaped floral-on-black Floral Square Neck Midi Dress (now $37) as well as on the mocknecked and fun swingy Plissé Pleat Shift Dress (now $42, loooooove the lavender!). More classic shapes like wrap dresses await in items like the Olivia Wrap Dress (now $30) which comes in two solid colors or a pretty patterned version.
When you’re ready to layer over those lovelies you’ve got lots of options in sale. I’d begin with a cardigan, where the Long Ribbed Cashmere Cardigan (now $199) stands out of the crowd. It’s an investment to be sure but considering the high customer ratings, timeless design and multitude of colors available, I think it’s a worthy one. That cardigan is pretty sleek; if you prefer something more oversized and modern then the I’ll Be Around Cardigan (now $77) is the one I’d point you to.
Wanting a more sleek top layer? You could do a blazer like the Tweed Peplum Jacket (now $190), or perhaps a very chic quilted leather jacket in the Quilted Leather Moto Jacket (now $335). I am of course enamored with this minty blue-green Leather Moto Jacket (now $570), but also really liking the warm green Do It Right Faux Suede Moto Jacket (now $112).
