I'm 55 & a Former Nordstrom Buyer—I Want These 6 Items From the Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is more or less one of the biggest shopping events of the year. As we’ve highlighted this week, the mega blowout offers majorly discounted prices on a plethora of coveted buys. Today, we thought we’d highlight even more standouts from the event. In fact, we thought there could be interest in what one of our favorite follows, Susie Wright, thinks is A+ from the Anniversary Sale. After all, she is a former Nordstrom buyer, so it’s safe to say that she gets the merchandise and understands what's worth buying now. Oh, and she also happens to be 55. And no, age has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn’t wear, but that sartorial experience after years of style trial and error is also quite intriguing.

If you peep Wright’s site, So Susie, you’ll see that she’s already been shopping the sale during the preview stage. Keep scrolling to uncover the six general categories Wright is shopping from Nordstrom right now, complete with a range of inspired products to suit a variety of styles. Go on—there could be serious add-to-cart action in your near future.

1. Leather Jackets

"Adding a black leather jacket during the Anniversary Sale is a great investment. It’s a cool classic you’ll wear for years to come and can be styled in many different ways." — Wright

2. Cardigans

"Another staple that’s always in style is a cardigan that can be worn most months of the year. I recommend a neutral color like black, gray, or camel." — Wright

"Picking up a couple of pairs of jeans is a must during this sale because you can get the top brands at great prices! I’m loving lighter washes and a straight-leg silhouette."  — Wright

4. Dresses

"There are many great options on sale if you want to pick up a buy-now, wear-now dress. Then, when the weather changes, just add a cardigan and booties for extra warmth!" — Wright

5. Sweaters

"I know it’s hard to think about sweaters in the middle of summer, but the prices are so good now’s the time. My favorite brands are Vince and Nordstrom Signature." — Wright

6. Lightweight Jackets

"AllSaints is always a favorite during the sale, and you would be surprised at how versatile the lightweight jackets are from this brand and others." — Wright
