When it comes to retailers whose sale sections nail the trifecta of including affordable deals, cute clothes and free shipping, I’m of the opinion that Nordstrom pretty much reigns supreme. Case in point: the retailer just totally restocked its discounts, which are now bursting at the seems with tempting markdowns. Even better (or more hazardous for my debit card balance)? So many of the styles are under $40.
To make combing through the retailer’s massive selection a breezier pursuit, I’ve rounded up the can’t-miss sale finds. From little black dresses with thousands of reviews to minimalist capsule wardrobe pieces, the list below includes pieces you’ll want to wear again and again. (Now *and* when the world hopefully goes back to normal soon too, that is.)
Shoppers should note that there is one catch to Nordstrom’s discounted items, which is that they historically sell out and fast. Ahead, the can’t miss finds to shop before these looks inevitably start to sell out left and right.
