Thursday’s Workwear Report: Belted Skirt (And an Early Look at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018!)

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.First off, big news: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has started! If you’re not familiar with the sale, this is the one time of the year when Nordstrom brings out NEW fall merchandise — and marks it all down for a limited time. It’s a great time to stock up on undies and bras, get limited edition beauty sets, and of course get a ton of great workwear and accessories for work. I’m still poking through the sale, but we’ve got some links to some early favorites below. Note that even though this is the Early Access part of the sale (meaning you can’t purchase if you don’t have a card for another week now), you CAN get in to take a sneak peak — as well as to sign up for your own Nordstrom card, get approved, and start shopping today. One of the early picks in our price range for today is this new Halogen skirt for fall, which is temporarily marked $58.90, but will return to $89 after the sale. I like the fun color, the pockets, and the fact that it’s machine washable — and it’s always nice to have the option for petite and regular sizes. Belted Skirt

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 workwear early picks

 

Pictured above:

  • pants, now $150 (will be $229 after sale ends)
  • suit: blazer, now $94, will be $142; skirt, now $45, will be $69 after sale ends
  • block slingback pumps (reader favorite brand for comfort!), now $239, will be $369 after the sale (5+ colors)
  • stacked heel ankle strap pump (another really comfortable brand), now $149, will be $225 after sale (4 colors)

Also, a few notes from the Beauty sale (where there are lots of limited edition sets that sell out pretty quickly!): this Butter London primer/top coat nail set is $19 (down from $36) and free of all the bad stuff; and I know this Sunday Riley Triple Threat set ($49) will probably be one of the first to sell out (here’s my review of Good Genes). I’ve got this Lancer skincare set of bestsellers in my cart, and I’m seriously pondering this set of Living Proof Perfect Hair Day stuff or this set of Caviar Alterna haircare (here’s my review). This looks like a nice Kiehl’s Age Correcting set ($89 down from $131), as does this Clarins Super Restorative set ($159 down from $280) or this La Mer set ($330 down from $469). Good basics: this Eve Lom cleanse set ($60 down from $90) or this collection of MAC Idols lipsticks ($32).

Stay tuned for a deeper diver into the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for workwear later today!

No one wants to think about wool coats in July, but there are some great coats in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year. This is one of my favorites — I like the sort of floppy collar, the military influence with the buttons, and the huge patch pockets, which feel kind of chic and are a nice detail on an otherwise simple coat. I also like the price, which is just $109; it’ll go up to $198 after the sale. The coat comes in the pictured moss as well as black and is available in regular and petite sizes (lucky sizes only). Funnel Neck Wool Blend Coat

Here’s a plus-size option (Cinzia Rocca, huge discount).

Dum dum dum… we present Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017: Picks for Work!

Updated 8/3 to reflect restocked inventory! Anything that only has a few sizes left has been marked with an asterisk — if you like it, you may want to move fast! 

I’ll be honest: Based solely on the presale catalog, I was a little worried that this sale was going to be (to quote recent news articles on other matters) “a big nothing burger,” so I’m thrilled to report that it’s actually really good once you wade past all of the ruffles (my God, why all the ruffles?) and odd off-the-shoulder/cold shoulder looks.  There are a TON of great dresses from Eliza J, Ellen Tracy, Classiques Entier, Halogen and Vince Camuto; tons of investment pieces from BOSS, Lafayette 148 New York, and for the weekend a lot of great pieces from AG, Paige, Wit & Wisdom, Articles of Society, Kut from the Kloth and NYDJ. Reader favorite workout gear Zella is included in the sale, as is lingerie from brands like Natori, Chantelle, Hanky Panky, Spanx, and Yummie by Heather Thompson. (Oh, and this reader favorite brand for pantyhose and tights is in the sale too!)

Without further ado, here’s our initial picks for workwear from the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale…

Kate Spade has little colorful stud earrings that have been hugely popular for a long time now, and since I hate studs I’ve never pulled the trigger. I love that now they’ve got little drop earrings made with the same colorful crystals — I think they’re fun and a little festive. I kind of like the blackish “jet” (pictured) or the blueish “sapphire,” and there’s a lovely “berry” and “emerald” — but they also have a simple clear crystal with either gold, silver, or rose gold. These are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale; they’re $31 and will go up to $48 after the sale. If you’re not a big fan of these, Nordstrom has these very similar drop earrings that are NOT part of the NAS but on sale anyway! Bright Idea Drop Earrings

Psst: Note that the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now OPEN to the regular public — you no longer need a rewards card to get access!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is chugging along, and there are still a lot of great things left, including this really lovely, sort of boxy tote from Vince Camuto. It comes in black and gray, and it has a padded laptop compartment. I love the detail of the pocket on the front and the zipper, and I also like the very wide gusset, which is 6″ deep. The tote is $198, and after the sale it’ll go up to $298. Elvan Leather Tote

Here’s a more affordable tote with some interesting details.
