It’s finally that time of year, friends: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! It’s a big event for us around here, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was sadly delayed this year. Thankfully, it’s back in full force, and even if you’re not an Icon or Ambassador member (more on that later), you can get your wish list started. 

The number of quality items in stock can be a bit overwhelming during this sale. That’s why we’re here to do the heavy lifting for you. We’ve sifted through a multitude of closet staples, beauty exclusives, and home decor to find you the best of the best.

Here’s the breakdown of when and how you can access the sale this year: 

July 24: Anyone can preview what will be going on sale, but you won’t be able to purchase sale items just yet.

August 4: The sale starts for Icons (Nordstrom credit card holders who spend at least $15,000 in a calendar year).

August 7: Ambassadors (Nordstrom card holders who spend at least $5,000 per year) can start shopping the sale.

August 10: Influencers (Nordstrom card holders who spend at least $2,000 per year) can start shopping the sale.

August 13: The sale begins for Insiders (those who spend over $500 per year or have a Nordstrom credit card. All Nordstrom credit card holders are Insiders).

August 19: The sale is open to everyone.

August 30: Sale ends.

If you’re not a Nordstrom card holder, don’t fret. There should still be plenty of markdowns when the sale opens to the general public. Hopefully, this list will help you narrow down your choices and prepare.

Paige Verdugo Ripped Raw Hem Skinny Jeans

No wardrobe is complete without a comfortable, go-to pair of jeans. We love the Paige brand, and these ripped, distressed jeans are perfectly on trend. The waist isn't too high to pinch your middle, but it's high enough that you won't be sporting the passé low-rise look from two decades ago.
