Though we may still be in the middle of summer, I'm already thinking about fall shopping. With so many great trends coming up for the season ahead, I'm currently mapping out which pieces I'm going to add to my closet to wear in the coming months. If you want to get a head start on the biggest trends that will be huge this fall, it's prime time to shop them yourself. If you aren't ready to make a huge investment, you're in luck because I've found some of them sitting at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Although there is a long list of fall trends to have on your radar, I've narrowed in on the best ones to add to your cart right now—from the shoe trend that is already everywhere to the bag shape I'm predicting will be big to the jacket that is making a major resurgence. Ahead, shop my picks from the Nordstrom sale.

One of my favorite trends for fall? Hyper-pretty things, ranging from corsets to sheer, delicate fabrics to shades of pastel like soft pink and baby blue. One thing that makes me think this will be big is how unexpected the trend is for fall.
Bomber jackets have already started gaining momentum but are set to be even bigger as we head into fall. Spotted on the runway at brands such as Louis Vuitton, the silhouette is decidedly oversize, so consider buying your jacket in a size up.
XXL bags have been on the rise for the last several years, but the fall/winter 2022 collections included styles that feel more wearable than those from past seasons. Functional, practical, and cool, big totes are here to stay.
It may seem odd to pinpoint tank tops as a trend, but with so many styles on the runways for fall, they can't be ignored. Brands such as Prada and Bottega Veneta made a major case for tank tops, and they're primed to make a resurgence as a key staple to own.
Slip dresses are a subset of the "pretty things" trend our editors are excited about for fall. A piece that was huge in the 2010s thanks to Phoebe Philo, the slinky dresses are back and bigger than ever. Style yours with knee-high boots next season.
Though there are many shoe trends on the horizon for fall, I expect to see ballet flats really take off. Fashion insiders have been wearing them this summer, and as we move into the upcoming season, I predict we'll see them paired with ribbed socks—as seen on the Miu Miu runway.
