Dec. 2020 Update: Alas, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale has ended; but stay tuned for the big Half-Yearly Sale that should be coming at the end of December.

As I mentioned this morning, Triple Points are available at Nordstrom from today through May 7 — and the store has a TON of classic wardrobe essentials if you’re looking for advice on how to build a work wardrobe for summer or freshen up an older wardrobe.
A lot of these pieces in our Workwear Hall of Fame, but I thought I’d feature them here — as always, note that Nordstrom has long been a reader favorite because of their excellent customer service, long return policy, and all the reviews and ratings.
(You can earn Triple Points through the Nordstrom credit card, of course (you can check out our review on becoming a member here) or, in a newish policy, just by signing up for a Rewards card. For every 2,000 points you earn by spending at Nordstrom, Hautelook, or Nordstrom Rack, you’ll get a $20 Note to spend on anything you want.)
(Psst: I’m thinking of turning this into a series, in part because I vastly prefer to shop from/return purchases to one store rather than 15 zillion little store purchases — plus it’s been ages since we talked about how to build a capsule wardrobe for work, how to build a wardrobe for your summer internship, or how to revamp your work wardrobe.
What other stores would be at the top of your list if you wanted to build a work wardrobe? Perhaps ShopBop, Boden, Bloomingdale’s, J.Crew, J.Crew Factory, or Target? Talbots?)
