Nordstrom Sale 2022

Once the fun of the 4th of July dies down, you can almost always count on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale being right around the corner! This annual event is Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year where you can find major discounts on all the new fall styles hitting the shelves in the coming months. You can find savings in every category from clothing, shoes, and handbags, to accessories, jewelry, cosmetics, fragrances, and even home items! Since items in the sale are heavily discounted, popular items do tend to sell out fast! That’s why I love covering the sale—so I can give y’all updates when items restock, share my top picks, and alternative options if you aren’t able to snag the item you’ve been eyeing. This post is your one-stop-shop for the sale with everything you need to know and when you can shop, along with all of the sale picks I’ll be sharing throughout NSale!

Frequently Asked Questions About the Sale

Can I shop the sale in person and online? Yes! I personally think it’s easier to shop online since you can build a wishlist and essentially add items to your cart ahead of time so once the sale opens to you to shop, you can just checkout! Plus, Nordstrom always offers free shipping + free returns!

Styling Sale Pieces on Different Body Types

Bonnie- I’m 5’1 and usually wear a medium/large in pieces.

Top: medium | Bottom: medium | Cardigan: medium

I like the length of this top! It’s long enough just to show a little of the mid section so super flattering!

Sam- “5’3 and I go for a small or xs if it runs on the bigger side since I prefer a tighter fit.”

Top:small | Bottom-xs | Jacket(similar): small

They didn’t have an xs top in store so I couldn’t compare with the small but it does fit well! I have a bigger chest so the xs probably would’ve been too tight. I like the stretchy fit of the leggings and really liked how high waisted they were. The length was perfect on me!

Ariel- 4’11 and I grab a large or xl depending on the piece!

Top-large | Bottom-large | Flannel-medium

“I’m usually really picky about workout sets but loved this one. The top erminded me of my Lulu one, its really supportive. It has pads but I took mine out since I don’t like when they move around, I do that on all of mine lol. The pants are compresive and they dont roll which I hate. I did have to fold them up at the bottom but I do that with most of the ones I get since I’m on the shorter side.”

Dede- 5’4 and normally a small or medium!

Top: small | Bottom: small | Thermal top: small

The color of this set is so good! I like that it can be worn for workout or athleisure.

Bonnie- I’m 5’1 and usually wear a medium/large in pieces.

Top: large | Bottom: medium

Runs a little big. Love the color and the stretch. Was definitely comfortable to wear and fit nice on the hips!

Sam- “5’3 and I go for a small or xs if it runs on the bigger side since I prefer a tighter fit.”

Top:small | Bottom-xs

I love these honestly for year round! I would wear these now like this or add a jacket or sweater for winter and fall! They were a little long but you can roll them in to make shorter.

Ariel- 4’11 and I grab a large or xl depending on the piece!

Top-large | Bottom-xlarge

I was surprised by how soft these were. They have a lot of stretch so forgiving in the waist. They do bunch around the crotch area which I wasn’t a fan of.

Dede- 5’4 and normally a small or medium!

Top: small | Bottom: small

These were really flattering, I think because of the soft and stretchy material!

Bonnie- I’m 5’1 and usually wear a medium/large in pieces.

Blazer: large |Top: large | Jeans:30

Where’s to begin lol! In love with this blazer, gives me Rachel green vibes. Its trendy yet classic. I did have to roll the sleeves a little bit since a little long but not bad. Definitely going to be a staple for me!

Sam- “5’3 and I go for a small or xs if it runs on the bigger side since I prefer a tighter fit.”

Blazer: small | Top: medium | Skirt: 25

I loved putting together this outfit! All the pieces can be worn so many different ways.

Ariel- 4’11 and I grab a large or xl depending on the piece!

Blazer: large | Leggings: medium

Dede- 5’4 and normally a small or medium!

Blazer: smalls | Top: small | Jeans: 28

This blazer fit really well and can be styled casual or dressed up!
