The best sales of the year have officially arrived now that Black Friday is here. The sheer volume of pieces to choose from can be overwhelming, so I’ve combed through the biggest sales of the season to highlight the very best items to add to your cart. That includes Nordstrom, where I did a deep dive to uncover the Black Friday sale items that are most noteworthy and likely won’t last very long before they sell out.

My short list includes wardrobe staples, such as Reformation pleated trousers and New Balance sneakers, that are already stocked in my closet and ready for a replacement. But I’ve also included pieces I’ve been eyeing for many months but haven’t splurged on yet. I’ll be adding Khaite’s strapless satin dress to my shopping cart first. Ahead, see the best Black Friday shopping finds from Nordstrom, according to this fashion editor.
