Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Look #1:

The look I’m wearing is perfect for a transitional to Fall look since it’s bold and vibrant. I’d easily wear this outfit now during the summertime without the coat. But I couldn’t resist this statement coat for the upcoming season! Unfortunately, it is almost sold out but this one is very similar and there are tons of other statement coat options here. I love a good tonal look that coordinates together, so I paired the blue coat with this baby blue blouse. It comes in 5 colors and makes for the best wardrobe staple that’s classy and chic. Then I added a pop of color with my yellow handbag and pop of animal print with these snakeskin heels, both of which come in several other colors. Keep reading down below for more on the animal print trend this season. You can also find similar aviator sunglasses like mine included in the Nsale. And my jeans are old, but here is a great premium denim option that’s similar. Most of my look is still in stock as I write this. But if not, always remember to check back in case things are restocked.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Look #1:

My assistant Ramsey also incorporated the animal print trend into her outfit with this leopard tee. It seems to be sold out, but again I suggest double checking to see if it was restocked. There are more leopard options noted at the bottom of this post as well. This blue crossbody purse added the prettiest pop to her look (comes in 5 colors). As you can see, we both love color! Plus, color blocking is huge this season. And aren’t her button up jeans so fun and unique? These jeans would also be adorable with her outfit. Her shoes are available at Nordstrom but not included in the Nsale, so here is a very similar black mule on sale!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Trend Alert: Animal Print

I feel like it’s not fair to call animal print a trend. It’s been popular for a while now and some people even consider it a neutral. Shopping through the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I noticed that there is a large quality of animal print. Including leopard, tiger, and snake or python prints. You can find my picks in the boutique below.


Leopard is probably the most popular right now. One of my favorites is these leopard flats. You can wear them casually, to work, to lunch, or wherever. They’ve sold out and restocked already so grab them while you still can. I also think a scarf would be a fun way to add a pop of leopard. For an edgier touch of leopard, this leather jacket is gorgeous. It has just enough of the print and I love that it mixes black and brown.

Snake Print

Snake or python print is another popular one. I like the print because it’s bold but the colors (whites, grays, and blacks) can be more subtle. If you love this print and want to make a statement, get these chic python skinny jeans. If you want to try it without going all out, this cami is very classic and will be easy to layer under jackets, blazers, and cardigans.

Tiger Print

Tiger print is one of the prints I was surprised to see more of. I think it’s a cool print and might be fun to try. I love this v-neck sweater. It’s a flattering fit and would be perfect with skinny jeans.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Trend Alert: Check Mix

Check mix can mean anything from plaid to houndstooth and more. There are so many variations of this popular check mix. You can find my top picks below.

Plaid Print

Plaid is easily the most popular check pattern. If you want to try out a print but aren’t crazy about the animal print trend…this might the classic print you’ve been searching for. Add a pop of plaid with these heels or a scarf. If you know you love plaid, throw on this sweater and the matching pencil skirt for a really chic look.

Houndstooth Print

Houndstooth is a tricky print. I think it’s a classic but also a little edgier. If you’re going to wear it, make sure you go simple with the rest of your look. My favorite houndstooth piece is this colorful coat.

Windowpane Print

This windowpane print is essentially a larger scale plaid print. I think it’s the perfect workwear print. It’s sophisticated and chic. You’re wearing a print but it’s not overpowering. I love this white and black top. Or you can try these leggings. Another favorite is these pants.

What are some of your favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks? Going to try out any of these trends now?
