Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is arguably the shopping event of the summer. There are tons of amazing discounts on everything from contemporary labels like Cult Gaia and Coach to classic brands like Levi's, New Balance, Ray-Ban, and so many more. My jewelry go-tos like Jenny Bird and Monica Vinader also have stunning creations included in the sale.

When you start looking under the Anniversary Sale tab on the site, though, the realization that there are over 2000 items to sort through in a limited time—prices go back up on August 7—can be more than a little bit overwhelming. After all, a proper deep dive into this year's offering could take hours. Lucky for you, I spent my time sifting through the discounted lot to bring you 32 of the best pieces from the sale. What can I say? I take my responsibility as a fashion editor very seriously.

Ahead, find everything from under-$100 picks to Nordstrom stylist faves, but be warned: Things tend to sell out extremely fast. Keep scrolling for some seriously standout finds and get 'em before they're gone.

Freelance Fashion Editor

Lauren Adhav is a freelance fashion editor based in Los Angeles. Originally from Orlando, Florida, she always wanted to work at a fashion magazine. After finally getting an internship at Town & Country in 2015, she moved to New York City and continued to get her footing in the industry with stints at Cosmopolitan, W magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and Moda Operandi. In 2017, she returned to Cosmo full time, starting off as the beauty and fashion editorial assistant and working her way to fashion editor. She contributed to both the website and print issues, pitching new ideas, forecasting trends, covering red carpet events, and informing the overall coverage and brand voice. After five years in NYC, she moved to the West Coast for the sunshine and the change of pace. As a freelance fashion editor, she still contributes to Cosmo and now Who What Wear. She's always trying to get ahead of the next big trend before it goes mainstream and loves discovering fashion brands with a unique point of view (Chopova Lowena, Sandy Liang, and Bode being some of her current favorites). She also spends an unhealthy amount of time online shopping for the perfect piece, and now that she's in L.A., she's rediscovering her soft spot for malls. On the weekends, you can find her walking around the Silver Lake Reservoir, trying to catch up on her tan at Venice Beach, and probably ordering a Chinese chicken salad at Joan's on Third.
