"Denim is always a great buy on the Anniversary Sale. The good news is that this year the selection is really great. Since denim is truly the backbone of our wardrobes, investing in a few new styles can update all your outfits. So, stock up. You'll be happy you did!" — Wright
Shoes and Boots
"The boot selection on the Anniversary Sale is usually excellent. You'll always find a new trend that helps get you ready for the fall season ahead. I recommend buying early in the season in order to have a longer wearing time. Shoes and boots can be a great investment, so getting them on sale is a bonus." — Wright
"Coats are some of the very best items to consider purchasing during the Anniversary Sale. The prices are incredible, and there are always a few new styles and colors from which to choose. Coats tend to sell out pretty quickly, so if you find one you like, grab it immediately." — Wright
"A couple of years ago, I bought a beautiful necklace on the Anniversary Sale, and I've worn it almost every day since. This is a good time to treat yourself to a special piece of jewelry, ideally, something you'll wear all the time." — Wright
"The Nordstrom sale is the perfect time to stock up on sweaters. There are so many styles and options, everything from cool cashmere to versatile cardigans to novelty pieces. All are perfect for work or casual. Stock up while the prices are low." — Wright
"Many of us are still building our workwear wardrobes, and you'll find some great essentials on the Anniversary Sale. Think blazers, trousers, and silky blouses—all versatile, and great for your off-duty outfits too." — Wright
