Our 20 Favorite Things to Shop from The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Our editors independently research, test, and recommend the best products; you can learn more about our review process here. We may receive commissions on purchases made from our chosen links.

The final days of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are in sight, and if you haven't shopped yet, what are you waiting for? The last day to shop the sale is August 30th, so if there's something on your wishlist, you better act now before prices go back up to the regular price.

For the uninitiated, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale offers a first look at fall's latest trends—and at a deep discount. Savings can be found across the entire store, but we love to use the sale as an excuse to stock up on cult-favorites and exclusive items that rarely go on sale from top brands like Smeg, Boll & Branch, and Matouk.

The sale opened to the general public starting Aug. 19, and just be forewarned—many customer favorites tend to sell out fast. Due to the nature of the sale, items may go out of stock, but we are constantly checking our lists to make sure items are available for you.

Here, our top home picks from Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale.
