The Best Investment Piece on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I love helping all of you select the very best items on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! And, after many years as a Nordstrom Buyer and Personal Stylist, I kinda know a thing or two about navigating the sale 😉 One thing I learned very early on is that investing in coats and jackets is worth every penny. I’ve said it over and over again — a great jacket or coat makes every outfit. And,  based on my own experience, these are the pieces we all still wear (and love) years later. Ironically, my first buying assignment with Nordstrom was in the coat and suit department, which might be where my love of coats comes from!

This year on the Anniversary Sale, there are many excellent choices — and the prices are incredible. My guidance to clients and friends has always been to pick up a few coats and jackets while they’re reduced. The prices are really good, and trust me, you’ll be happy you have them once the weather changes! So, keep scrolling to see my latest finds: everything from an under $100 blazer to a beautiful camel coat to a comfy cashmere cardigan. And, I’ve put together several style boards to give you a little outfit inspo. I really hope you like them and find them helpful. Happy shopping!

P.S. Yesterday I went LIVE on Instagram straight from the Nordstrom dressing room, click here to watch the video, and click here and here to see everything I shared.
