Nordstrom Rack has consistently been one of our favorite places to pick up chic clothes, shoes and bags on a budget, in addition to beauty and home goods. But right now might just be the best time of all for scoring amazing deals because the retailer’s Clear the Rack sale event has officially begun. 

During the sale, you can save an extra 25 percent on select clearance items, both in store and online, no code necessary. The deals last through end of day on Monday, November 13, but for the most-wanted items, we highly suggest you move fast to avoid having them sell out. That includes the Barefoot Dreams CozyChic cardigan (was $145, now $65), Marc Jacobs Grind tote (was $350, now $170) and UGG Pearle slippers (was $80, now $70). Do note that expected shipping times range from five to 11 days and all sales are final. If you need a little shopping inspiration or simply don’t know where to begin with all the fabulous options, here are some of our favorites. Happy shopping!

Few things beat wrapping yourself up in a cardigan and sitting by the fireplace on a snowy day. (Hot chocolate in hand, of course.) You’ll want to snag this Barefoot Dreams cardigan before it sells out (one of the colors is already low in stock). The ribbed knit features the brand’s signature soft and cozy material with a long silhouette—perfect for draping across your lap. The shawl collar keeps your neck warm, and the piece is available in sizes small to large and is machine washable and dryer safe.  

2. Marc Jacobs Grind Tote 

Marc Jacobs

Refresh your handbag collection with this little number from Marc Jacobs. This tote comes in six colors, including peach, pomegranate and a slew of neutrals. Wear it as a top handle bag, or attach the strap to make it a crossbody. The bag is adorned with lock and key charms, plus the Marc Jacobs logo on the interior of the asymmetrical interior. It’s a handbag that will keep your organized: There are two compartments, a zip pocket and key clip so that everything is exactly where it should be. 

It’s not winter without a pair of slippers, and this popular pair from UGG will keep your toes toasty all season long. They’re roomy slip-on shoes with a rounded toe box, leather upper and grippy sole. The UGGplush lining is a moisture-wicking wool blend that mimics the feel of shearling (but you can say goodbye to cold and sweaty feet). Plus, they’re available in six colors including lilac, mustard and chestnut.  

Have a snowy vacation in the works? You’ll need some boots, and now’s your chance to pick up a pair for under $100. The insulated Sorel Explorer II boots feature a lace-up design with faux shearling and a (manageable) platform heel in five colors.  

One of the downsides of winter? Looking like a giant snowman with all the layers. Enter: this Kenneth Cole puffer jacket that promises to keep you warm and looking chic. With its quilted texture, hood and generous pockets, it’s functional and fashionable. Oh, and did we mention that it’s machine washable and can be thrown in the dryer? 

There’s no such thing as too much denim, so why not add this high-rise pair to your closet? The cropped length and distressed details make the pants both trendy and timeless, while the high-waist keeps everything streamlined. The jeans have five pockets and are made from cotton and elastane for a little stretch.  

7. Love By Design Ottoman Dress 

Love By Design

Simple? Check. Warm? Check. Stylish? Also check. Whether it’s an office party or after-work get-together, this off-the-shoulder sweater dress has you covered. Just throw on a nice coat, a pair of comfy boots and the outfit is complete.  

You can’t go wrong with a pair of Chelsea boots—but Chelesea boots with a Western silhouette? Yes, please. These stacked-heel booties have the design’s signature gored details, pull tabs and a padded footbed that will keep you comfy as you stroll through a charming Christmas town this season.  

The sun still shines, even in winter (thankfully). And right now, you can pick up a pair of Armani sunnies at 61 percent off. It’s hard to go wrong with timeless aviators, and this Italian-made pair has a statement brow bar for a unique twist on the design.  

Long coats not your thing? You can still stay warm in this Sebby short puffer. It’s got a high collar, hood, pockets and a gathered hem to keep you insulated and toasty in the cold.

11. Adornia Halo Necklace  


Time for a little holiday sparkle. This dainty halo necklace features brilliant Swarovski crystals set in 14k gold or silver. The pendant dangles from a simple chain with a lobster clasp, drawing the eye right to the center stone.  

12. kate spade new york Lexy Bag

Leave it to kate spade to create a versatile and fun handbag. The Lexy is a gusseted shoulder bag with a roomy interior with pockets—perfect for an extra lipstick, your phone, wallet and tons of essentials, like that new read you just downloaded on your Kindle. It comes in two pastel shades—pale hydrangea (a light blue) and frozen lilac.  

We still want to exercise when the temps turn chilly, but preferably not in a sports bra. Puma’s soft fleece pullover, with its drawstring hood and kangaroo pocket, promises to keep us toasty when we head out on our daily run.  

14. Nine West Denie Boot 

Nine West

It’s safe to say the soft goth aesthetic will stick around for a while, and these combat boots from Nine West fit the bill perfectly. Don’t be intimidated by the laces: There’s a convenient side-zip closure so you can slip them on in a jiffy. The block heel is just under three inches, with a one-inch platform—a helpful boost, especially if you’re petite

15. By Design Velvet Dress 

By Design

Consider this your uniform for the season’s formal engagements. Holiday parties, the ballet, the theater...the simple and flattering halter cut is flowy with an elegant side slit. Added plus: It’s machine washable and partially lined.
