I spent a really long part of my life getting frustrated over fashion. Nothing fit me right, and the only stuff that came in my size looked like it was made for my grandma (no offense to Grandma Barb, but your style isn’t exactly mine). So, I decided to resort to baggy, cozy T-shirts and the same jeans or leggings every day. Thankfully, those days are behind me.
Now that companies have started taking a hint, fashion has become something I’m excited and passionate about—I love putting new pieces together, trying trends, and of course, shopping. What’s better than shopping is a good deal, and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the epitome of good deals. It’s a fashion lover’s dream! Nordstrom has a plethora of plus-size options from all of our favorite brands (BP, 1.STATE, Good American, and more).
We pulled together everything we’re loving from the sale (I’ve bought a few of these items for myself already)—everything from winter coats and sweaters to the best leggings and denim. Grab your wallet. You’ll need it!
A classic faux leather moto is a quintessential item in everyone’s fall wardrobe for how versatile and chic it looks, regardless of what you’re wearing underneath (trust me: I wear my leather jacket with sweats and a tee all the time and always feel good). BlankNYC is also one of our most trusted brands. Their faux leather feels so much more high-quality than others given the price point, and we love the way they add special details like gold hardware and pockets that make it look unique.
There’s a reason these sell out every single year—they’re the most comfortable leggings on Earth that actually look put-together. You can wear them to the office with a long sweater or blazer, to the bar with a lace cami, and I’ve even seen girls wear them at the gym (and I can’t lie, they’d probably be pretty dang good). They’re the most versatile pants in any closet, so don’t hesitate to grab an extra pair. (Yep, that good!)
For the office
A cute dress that makes you look and feel like a knockout is an essential in anyone’s closet. If you thought leopard print was gone, think again. Leopard print is a big fall trend, especially on statement-making items like dresses and coats. Aside from how good it looks, it’s Good American, so you know the fit is impeccable, even on a plus-size body. The wrap detail and tie waist are so flattering, and the material is thick without feeling heavy. I need this in my closet ASAP.
Lounge and activewear
This isn’t just your regular, run-of-the-mill sports bra. It’s basically the antithesis to the uncomfortable, unsupportive sports bras we’ve been sold time and time again. With padding, built-in underwire, adjustable straps, and a hook closure in the back, this bra is made for the hardest of workouts, regardless of your chest. It comes in bra sizes and goes up to a 44G so everyone can have a good workout without having to tug at their bra the entire time.
Everyone needs a comfy gray crewneck come the fall and winter, whether it's for running errands, hanging around the house, or with your leather leggings for a cool look. We love this one from Nike because it makes the classic gray crew stylish, and it’s beyond comfortable. I’ll be wearing this over my sports bra to the gym practically every day this fall.
