The sale fashion lovers wait all year to shop is finally here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to all shoppers, and this is your chance to grab the best clothing and accessories on super sale. This Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is especially good because it includes tons of markdowns on closet essentials that you can buy while the price is low and wear for years to come.

Because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is so popular but only lasts for about two weeks, it’s important to shop with a bit of strategy. Rather than just scrolling through page after page of sale items, think about what’s actually missing from your wardrobe. If you already have lots of trendy pieces or items that are on their last leg, your focus should be on timeless classics that are well-made when hitting up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Don’t have much time to check out every single item on sale at Nordstrom right now? Start with the seven closet essentials at Nordstrom that are marked down for the Anniversary Sale and worth adding to your closet right away.
