Everything You Need to Know About The Upcoming Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022

jo malone candle set

1. Jo Malone Home Candle Duo

K-Middy is such a fan of Jo Malone’s Orange Blossom scent, she had candles of it burning in Westminster Abbey during her wedding ceremony. Unfortunately, this set doesn’t contain Middleton’s all-time fave, but it does include Peony & Blush Suede and Lime Basil & Mandarin, so you can discover your own signature Jo Malone scent.

2. Hunter Original Short Back Adjustable Rain Boot

Princess Diana, Markle and even the Queen herself have all been spotted wearing Hunter rain boots through the years—that’s how reliable the heritage brand is. This calf-height pair is constructed in a light, flexible rubber, so you don’t have to second-guess throwing them in your weekend bag if the forecast calls for rain.

3. Diptyque Travel Size Scented Candle Set

Speaking of beloved royal candles, Meghan and Harry reportedly used floral candles and sprays by fancy French brand Diptyque to set the mood for their wedding day, and multiple scents, including Tubereuse, have been ID’d in the background of various video calls with Markle starting in 2020. So we’re totally thrilled that that fragrance is included in this candle set, along with three other quintessential Diptyque favorites.

4. Longchamp Le Pliage Expandable Tote

Both Kate and Meghan have been spotted toting Longchamp bags dozens of times. And this nylon version can be extended to fit your laptop or gym clothes during the week, or made smaller for a night out or weekend lunch date.

5. Ray-ban 55mm Rectangular Sunglasses

It’s no secret that Middleton loves classic sunnies, so of course she owns a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Last summer, she was spotted with them in hand at Wimbledon. This classic style is so versatile, we have a feeling it’ll become your everyday go-to pair.

6. Aquatalia Brigitte Luxe Bootie

Middleton has worn Aquatalia’s suede Rumba boots more times than we can count, so it’s safe to say they’re a staple in her closet. Sadly, her preferred pair isn’t featured in Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, but we have no doubt the Duchess would approve of this ankle boot iteration.

7. Laura Mercier Hydrating Pure Canvas Primer Duo

Preferring to keep her makeup natural and light, Meghan is a major fan of Laura Mercier’s Illuminating Primer. Unfortunately, that particular product isn’t included in Nordstrom’s sale, but this lightweight primer sure is and can help set you up for a stunningly smooth, dewy canvas over which to layer your favorite cover up or foundation.


8. Madewell Stripe Strap Transport Tote

When Meghan opted to carry Madewell’s affordable canvas Transport Tote on her 2020 tour of South Africa, it understandably sold out almost immediately. Luckily the brand has continued to restock fairly regularly, and has also released new variations, like this leather stunner with a multi-colored striped strap.

9. Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Mascara Set

This classic mascara is reportedly Kate’s go-to for finishing off her signature smoky eye looks, though she’s not the only famous fan. Anya Taylor-Joy, Penelope Cruz and Kourtney Kardashian have all praised the voluminizing formula for its ability to lengthen and thicken their lashes without clumping. Best of all, this set comes with two tubes of the stuff, plus a mascara primer and makeup remover.

10. Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Cheeks Set

Markle swears by Charlotte Tilbury's Very Victoria matte lipstick, so why not try the brand’s highlighter and blush duo as well? The cult-favorite shade is flattering on all skin tones and gives you a natural-looking glow just like the former duchess herself.
