It’s the most wonderful time of the year: sale season! At least that’s how I feel, as a fashion editor who shops for a living (and also for fun, in every spare minute I have). Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is not to be missed, for savings on trendy must-haves and classic wardrobe stapes alike. Here are my 16 picks for the pieces that are editor-approved.

1. Frank & Eileen Joedy Stripe Shirt

Wear it with denim shorts for the rest of summer, then layer it under grey cashmere come fall.

BUY IT ($248; $140)


2. Monica Vinader Fiji Skinny Diamond Huggie Hoop Earrings

Diamonds are forever. But these prices are obviously not!

BUY IT ($250; $150)


3. Halogen Crewneck Cashmere Sweater

Run, don't walk, to get your hands on this under-$60 cashmere.

Upgrade your black sunnies with a designer pair that's sleek enough to be worn with anything in your closet.

BUY IT ($500; $335)


5. Mother The Insider Two Step Fray Hem Crop Jeans

There's a reason why cropped flares have remained cool for so long: They're ultra-flattering and inherently stylish. Seriously, this black pair from Mother will make even a white T-shirt look dressed up.

BUY IT ($228; $150)


6. Jeffrey Campbell Troye Square Toe Bootie

These basic black booties look like a million bucks (it has something to do with that square toe) but won't exceed your $100 budget.

BUY IT ($150; $99)


7. Theory Oaklane Glen Plaid Coat

When winter rolls around again, you’ll be so happy to already have this hanging in your closet.

BUY IT ($795; $400)


8. Clare Vivier Simple Animal Print Suede Tote

Roomy enough for your laptop, your lunch and your makeup bag. Plus, it comes with a red shoulder strap, for an unexpected pop of color.

BUY IT ($540; $300)


9. The North Face Cragmont Fleece Jacket

If you already know your fall aesthetic is going to be "cozy," make sure you have all the necessary gear on hand. Like this fleece jacket from The North Face that will actually keep you warm.

BUY IT ($150; $105)


10. Spanx OnCore Mid Thigh Shaper Shorts

Here's a fashion editor's secret: When we find our fave pair of Spanx, we always stock up. Especially when they're on sale.

BUY IT ($64; $42)


11. BDG Urban Outfitters Shaker Stitch Cardigan

This sweater only looks vintage (meaning, it doesn't smell like mothballs and you don't have to physically dig through a pile of clothes to find it).

BUY IT ($74; $50)


12. Alo Airlift High Waist Leggings

You'll want to wear these leggings for more than just a Zoom workout class; they have a second skin feel that gives your booty a major lift (no squats required).

BUY IT ($118; $79)


13. Maggy London Puff Sleeve Pleated Midi Dress

A flirty dress that you can wear to a summer picnic and the big interview—although maybe not in that order.

BUY IT ($164; $100)


14. Blondo Helen Waterproof Hiker Boot

Waterproof hiking boots that will have you dreaming of snowstorms...even in the middle of August.

BUY IT ($179; $100)


15. Sam Edelman Faux Shearling Moto Jacket

Shearling is the one coat trend that just won't give up. And you know what? That's exactly what we love about this warm, fuzzy winter piece.

BUY IT ($240; $146)


16. Tory Burch Classic-T Bracelet Watch, 30mm

It's worth investing in a gold bracelet watch; once you find the one you love, you'll wear it every single day.

BUY IT ($295; $197)
