It’s finally here — the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Early Access! In case you missed this post, we’ll give you a quick run-down. This is the biggest and best sale of the year. We love it so much because it’s all-new pieces for fall. Not things that didn’t sell the past few months. Not things that last season. Not things that were overstocked. ALL NEW ITEMS! We love to stock up on cardigans, leggings, and booties…but we also love to buy fun statement pieces that we know will jump in price as soon as the sale is over.
Head to our stories now for our first try on and our exact orders! We will do several extensive posts broken down by category and price – but today we are each sharing our top picks from the sale – these are the. items we think will sell out ASAP.

Shop NSale 2021:
This is the first thing I am putting in my cart because I know it will sell out ASAP. I’m grabbing the faded rose color for baby girl – Baby Joe sleeps with three BFDs, just like his dad!
Another item that is going to absolutely sell out is our favorite faux leather leggings. These are going to be a post-partum dream this fall! I love to pair them with an oversized sweater or a long t-shirt and jacket. These are the best because they look amazing with boots, booties, sneakers, even heels. So many ways to wear them!
These are new to the sale this year and I can’t believe the price. I’m not joking when I say I lived in these last fall and winter! Definitely size up for a looser, more relaxed fit! I get the XL.
This is the only item that made both mine and Em’s top 10! I love grabbing Free People sweaters during this sale because you can’t beat the price and they will last you years and years.
I cannot wait for the day this Fall that I can wear this! It comes in green and black, and I don’t know which one to get!
I won’t actually be buying these this year sadly but you absolutely should. These are my all-time favorite cut of jeans and I have them in multiple washes.
I’m not joking when I say that I have an entire drawer of these. They are my favorite and are so so so soft! Loving the new prints and colors for the sale! Gimme all the leopard print!
I plan on spending the last six weeks of my pregnancy wearing this. I am obsessed with the length and how versatile it is.
Last year’s Free People thermal style top sold out SO fast and never came back, so this is a must-have this year!
Slogan Knit Jacket
This is my one designer purchase this year and I am pumped for it. Shockingly, I don’t really have any black jackets like this in my closet, so this will definitely become a staple.
I just ran out of this shampoo and conditioner so I was PUMPED to see it on the sale. Plus, it comes with my fav dry shampoo and I love that the bottles have pumps!
This is, without a doubt, my absolute #1 pick for this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The NSALE is the best time to grab fall and winter essentials while they’re discounted, and this Leah Wool Blend Wrap Coat is the perfect winter coat! Not only is the camel hue chic and classic, but this wrap coat is typically $620 and on sale for nearly half off at $369! I love this winter coat because it makes the outfit. You can literally pair it with whatever you’re wearing and your look is instantly and effortlessly elevated.
I’m also in love with this Plaid Shawl Collar Coat. The big, exaggerated shawl makes it playful and unique, and I love the black and camel plaid pattern. It’s two neutrals in one and keeps you warm while looking cozy and cute! What more could you want in a fall/winter coat?
Good American makes incredible pieces, there’s no doubt about that. And this Blazer Dress by Good American is show-stopping good! I mean, if you have the legs for this, by all means, add to cart ASAP. I haven’t seen a blazer dress done this well and, what’s more, you can wear it to the office and transition seamlessly into dirty martinis right after work without skipping a beat!
Huggie hoops are the easiest and most low-maintenance earrings to wear, which is why I love them. These are a part of the NSALE and come in both a silver and gold finish, have an easy snap closure, and look good in literally anyone’s ear. They bring just enough bling to your face without going overboard!
Everyone needs a more casual fall/winter coat, and this Cragmont Hooded Fleece Coat is perfect for just that. I love throwing mine on over my athleisure or whatever I’m wearing when I run errands during the fall and winter. It’s incredibly cozy and warm, plus it’s by The North Face so you know it’s of the highest quality. It’s also perfect to wear in your own backyard during the winter when throwing on your nice wrap coat doesn’t fit the mood!
This summer has been all about the quilted heels, and it looks like that quilt craze is making its way to coats for fall and winter! I love this Diamond Quilt Trench Coat by Nordstrom. The deep navy is a perfect rich winter color, and this modern take on the classic double-breasted trench coat has a shawl collar and a removable tie belt as well!
I practically live in black blazers. They’re not only chic and sophisticated but incredibly versatile. Having a black blazer you love is a wardrobe essential, and this Boyfriend Flannel Blazer is under $100 during the NSALE! The soft flannel keeps you warm, and the slightly oversized profile of this blazer brings comfort and ease. This is such a stellar piece to add to your cart immediately!
This asymmetrical split-sleeve dress is EVERYTHING! The gorgeous oatmeal color, the ribbing for texture, and the slim, fitted skirt will have heads turning. This exactly my kind of dress—sexy yet modest. I just think it’s gorgeous and an amazing under $200 splurge!
Like I said, the NSALE is about stocking up on fall and winter essentials, and this Swim Too Deep Turtleneck sweater from Free People is most definitely an essential! Paired with your favorite pair of jeans and a great pair of booties? I’m ready for fall, like, now! Also love that it’s available in four really strong colors.
This Rounded V-Neck T-shirt by Calson is as essential and basic as they come. It’s woven from a lightweight slub-knit so it’s soft and perfect for layering. At just $12.90 per t-shirt, it’s definitely worth getting a few colors during this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
