These Under-$150 Nordstrom Sale Finds Are Peak Extravagance Yet Affordable



My closet is currently stuffed to the brim, but I'll never turn down the chance to at least browse a sale. The latest event I'm fixated on is none other than Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. And if you know anything about sales, this one is pretty legendary. I've already talked about the viral accessories the retailer has seriously discounted, but now, I'm shifting gears to one of my specialties: expensive-looking staples for less. 

When it comes to scouting affordable fashion finds that deceptively look designer, it's best to go for pieces with simple details and hefty materials. Think thick knits, crisp poplin, and denim as well as structured jackets with minimal touches. Scanning Nordstrom's epic sale, I spotted several of those go-to items, including blazers that I'd never guess were a cent below $500. To run through all of the luxurious staples I discovered, keep scrolling below. Each of them is guaranteed to serve peak extravagance.
