My Friend Wanted a List of Affordable Items—I Sent These Nordstrom Sale Finds

Given my role as a fashion editor, I’m typically the one in my inner circle who gets messages about shopping advice. And what can I say? I love it, and I’m always here for it. One of my friends routinely inquires about affordable items I’ve spotted in the market that ring in under $100 but look elevated and expensive. During one of our recent exchanges, I mentioned that Nordstrom is currently having its big holiday sale (yes, before Black Friday technically starts), so I sent her a list of my favorite six items from the sale.

Below, you’ll find the affordable picks in question (the first six in the list). If you’re personally looking for even more shopping inspiration as we head deeper into the holiday season, I also rounded up a smattering of other top-notch finds I think you’ll also love. Keep scrolling for a curation of chic items from the Nordstrom sale.

My friend wanted new relaxed jeans, so I sent her this cool distressed pair.

I think this coat looks far more expensive than it is.

I know my friend would be into under-$100 cashmere.

An oversize bomber jacket is the moment.
