Summer is beginning to give up her fight, and fall is ushering in. And, lucky for you, that means a lot of fashion savings on autumn essentials and end-of-season pieces. There's a ton of stores where you can find bargains. The Nordstrom Labor Day Summer Sale, for example, kicks off on Friday, Sept. 1 and runs through Sept. 10. And you need to take note of what they have in store.
The Summer Sale follows the retailer's massive Anniversary Sale, which features deep discounts on high-end and highly coveted items. The Summer Sale follows suit, with brands like FRAME Denim, Rag & Bone, Alice + Olivia, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Kendall + Kylie discounted up to 40 percent. There are bags, leather pants, skirts, sneakers, and more.
The Summer Sale applies to both in-store items and items on Nordstrom.com.
I'm going to pause and let you absorb those nuggets of information because they are bound to give you all of the fashion feels.
The beauty of this sale, besides the obvious savings, is that it's not a blowout of swimsuits, tanks, shorts, and summer attire. Most of these pieces can function in a transitional capacity. They can be effectively incorporated into your fall look because many of them invite layering.
The Nordstrom Signature Stretch leather pants are a rock 'n' roll investment piece at nearly $600. But they will last forever and ever.
The Rebecca Taylor One-Shoulder jersey dress is perfect for any formal occasion through the holidays. It's $177 formal wear. You can't beat that.
This Frame Le Mini Split Denim skirt is just $123, and will remain in style for years.
Vince's Cashmere Cold Shoulder Tunic is $195 and will take you from day to night through October.
How adorbs is this Alice & Olivia Bess slipdress? It's $210, and is an essential for those of you who live in a warm climate year-round.
Don't fret, cold weather dwellers. This baby can be layered with a cardi and opaque tights and then it morphs into an instant Zooey Deschanel-inspired ensemb.
This Kendall & Kylie combat boot will anchor any fall outfit.
This blue and ruffled Cinq dress will add a pop of color and brightness as days get darker and shorter.
Bootie call! The Via Spiga suede booties are $150 and will go with all your autumn outfits.
The Joie Emelda Bell Sleeve blouse is $137 and so on trend.
It's worth noting that if you find yourself gravitating towards a piece that may be more summer appropriate, the prices are so good that you may as well grab 'em. You'll get a head start on next summer with pieces that are classic enough to work for years to come.
