While we would love to snag a pair of Good American jeans or a coat for fall, sometimes our budget (is it payday yet?) doesn’t allow for it. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still score big at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Here, we’ve rounded up our picks for shopping the sale on a serious budget. Win, win.

You always need those "throw-on" pieces in the fall and winter for both warmth and that cute, layered look, and this one is already flying off the shelves.

Plus, we love this blue hue—it adds a bit of brightness to your otherwise dark fall color palettes.
One of the worst parts of adulthood is realizing that not only are bras super expensive, but also that finding one that fits you well is near impossible. After testing a bunch of bras, the best bra our editor tried was from True&Co.

No matter your hair length, silk hair ties will change your life. They are easy to remove on curly hair, cause less breakage for fine hair, and are strong enough to hold medium to thick hair too.
