Capsule Wardrobe Essentials In The 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has started and Icon Level cardholders can shop the early access sale! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is considered the most important sale of the year. While Nordstrom holds half-yearly sales throughout the year, this sale has become legendary among Nordstrom customers who enjoy outstanding savings on the most exciting new Fall and Winter items. There’s also summer items on sale too at deep discounts!

I have been shopping at Nordstrom for several years now. I first discovered the department store when I starting this blog in 2014. I was blown away at everything they have in the stores and online. Shopping online at Nordstrom is super easy, convenient, have fast free shipping and they have free return shipping too!

I’ll be doing blog posts throughout the sale so you’ll know what to shop for! You can easily get to all the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Posts by clicking on the “Nordstrom Ann. Sale” yellow button on the top menu of this blog.

Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

The Anniversary Sale is when I buy most of my core closet essentials that I use in my capsule wardrobes, like tees, jeans, sweaters, cardigans and shoes. If there are any clothes or shoes in my wardrobe that need replacing, the Anniversary Sale is the perfect time to buy quality-made items at low prices.

I have found several core closet essentials in the sale that you may be interested in grabbing for your capsule wardrobe. Several of these essentials are in the Simplified Style®: Dressy and Casual Collection – A Year-Round Core Closet Essentials Capsule Wardrobe. This Simplified Style® collection includes a complete year-round, 4-season capsule wardrobe with convenient shopping links, over 450+ outfit ideas for all seasons, outfit calendars and more!
