Even if you prefer to shop on a budget, some investment pieces are worth the splurge. Leather jackets, cashmere sweaters, designer bags, fine jewelry, and more are just a few pieces that have heftier price tags—for a good reason. Their dupes, no matter how much we love them, just don’t live up to the real thing when it comes to quality. So instead of re-buying dupes every year to “save money,” take advantage of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale when long-lasting, investment pieces are discounted, and you will have them in your closet for years to come. Here are some of the highly sought-after Nordstrom Anniversary Sale pieces you can’t miss:
your one-way ticket to your cool, calm, and collected era
Leather Biker Jacket
If you're looking for a timeless piece to add to your closet, this absolutely perfect leather jacket is it. It's one of our fashion editor's most-worn pieces of all time, and with a full $200 off, this is the lowest price we've ever seen it. You'll thank yourself for buying this every time you put it on.
Block Heel Bootie
There are few wardrobe staples as essential as a classic black boot, but finding the perfect pair is harder than you'd think. You want a just-right heel, chic toe, and high enough quality that you know you won't need to replace them even remotely soon—and this pair checks all three boxes. Their sleek style gives them the versatility to dress up or down, and we'd bet they're the only boots you wear all fall and winter long.
Essential Diamond Necklace
If there are two things that never, ever go on sale, it's diamonds and gold—but somehow, you get a mix of both for over $100 off in this timeless, beautiful necklace. It's that never-take-off piece that you can wear both alone and stacked with your other pieces. If you've been looking for a sign to treat yourself, consider this it.
Cashmere Crewneck Sweater
Nothing says cozy and classic like a cashmere sweater. This crewneck sweater's easy fit with ribbed trim at the neck, cuffs, and hem will pair seamlessly with every outfit come fall and winter, and it's hardly ever this well-priced. Grab it in a few colors now to wear jeans, skirts, and even layered over fall dresses.
1.25" Ceramic Curling Iron
T3 has a cult following, and for a good reason. All of their products are high-quality and create long-lasting, polished styles with ease. If you are someone who uses a curling iron (or any heat tool) on a consistent basis, do yourself a favor and invest in one that lasts.
Mini Starter Kit
Looking to make your first step into microcurrent treatments? This set valued at $209 (and on sale for $135) is an investment you'll be glad you made. This device gently works to stimulate the larger surface areas of the face to provide a five-minute facial lift. What more could a girl want?
Advanced Night Repair Serum Set
Treat yourself to this Estée Lauder set of one full-size Advanced Night Repair plus three deluxe travel sizes—valued at $209 and on sale for $110(!). This serum works double time by protecting your skin from harmful pollution and also from blue light. You won't be able to live without it once you try it—so you'll be extra glad it came with travel sizes you can take anywhere you go.
Hydrocotton Bath Towel
Donate your old towels and make room for new ones. Nordstrom's hydrocotton towels and washcloths are specially woven for maximum absorbency. Plus, they get softer with every use—unlike so many other brands that lose their plushness.
400 Thread Count Sheet Set
It's no secret that high-quality sheet sets cost a pretty penny, so add this 100% cotton luxe sheet set to your cart, sleep tight, and thank us in the morning when you're well rested. This set includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. Our advice? Grab a few sets so you are never without them when they are being washed.
Supernova Running Shoe
Hit the ground running (or hot girl walking) in a sneaker that is as supportive as it is stylish. The Supernova running shoe by adidas is perfectly cushioned and ventilated to deliver consistent comfort with every step, and for under $75 during the sale, they can't be beat.
