All fashionistas know that Black Friday is just the preamble to the real main course of an extended weekend filled with deals, sales and shopping. That’s right: For those of Us who didn’t quite get our fill immediately after Thanksgiving dinner, there’s always Cyber Monday.
Cyber Monday is the perfect shopping holiday for those of us who can’t stand the idea of waking up early to wait in long lines for hours. Most stores are having major sales to commemorate the big day and one of our favorite destinations for all things stylish, Nordstrom, is hands-down treating us to some of the best deals of the year.
Not only are thousands of items marked down up to 60 percent off (yes, you read that right), but shoppers who spend over $250 can get $50 back. That’s literally like getting a gift card for splurging on a pair of booties you had your eye on or that stunning coat you had sitting in your virtual cart for weeks.
Nordstrom rarely offers deals like this, so you bet we’re taking advantage! Not only are we getting everything we need for a decidedly stylish winter wardrobe, but we’re also racking up must-have gifts for everyone on our list. Move fast, though: With markdowns this deep, we don’t expect our picks to stay in stock much longer.
See our favorites below and be sure to check out everything that’s on sale!
1. A pair of leather-look leggings to pair with tunics, oversized sweaters and sweatshirts
As much as we love our skinny jeans for everyday wear, wearing denim all day can get a little ho-hum (not to mention uncomfortable). These moto-inspired leggings from celeb-worn brand Alo are designed to dress up your everyday pair of black leggings with pintucked panels and mesh. They’re super stretchy, have a high waistband that sucks you in and provides support and smoothing to your tummy, hips, thighs and butt. We like to wear ours with sweater dresses and oversized sweatshirts for a cozy yet put-together look. Multiple reviewers suggested wearing these to the gym, while some insist they’re the perfect style to wear to work if your office dress code is on the casual side. A handful even recommended wearing them on nights out, paired with either heels or tall boots.
2. A pair of tall boots that look like they cost hundreds (but are only $150)
Booties and over-the-knee boots might get a lot of love from stylists, celebrities and fashionistas alike, but if you ask us, there’s something so timeless about a pair of knee-high boots with a high-heel. This Sam Edelman pair is equal parts stylish and preppy, complete with a leather upper and simple lines that give the style plenty of understated elegance. The heel is almost four inches, so it’s that perfect height between being short enough to be walkable, yet tall enough to give you an extra couple inches of height. Most reviewers agree that these are surprisingly comfortable (though many note that they wouldn’t recommend wearing them for hours on end) and suggest styling them with jeans and skirts alike.
3. A relaxed jacket to wear to virtually everywhere
A relaxed jacket is the perfect piece to pull together any outfit. Not only does it add a casual touch to a pair of slacks and a tee, but it also completes a cozy loungewear look, too. This Caslon terry jacket has a stylish asymmetrical zip and a pretty flowy drape collar, too. Reviewers recommended pairing the style with leggings, as the back is just long enough to cover the backside.
4. A classic pair of booties for all-day wear
It’s the tiny details that can upgrade an affordable boot to a luxury one, and this BP. bootie has plenty of thoughtful touches that make each wear feel special. It has a slightly distressed finish, a stacked heel and a zipper on the side for ease. It comes in five warm neutral shades, including a burnished black, an oiled cognac and a playful grey suede.
5. A slouchy turtleneck for layering all winter long
There’s just something so effortlessly stylish about a turtleneck. Whether you pair it with a necklace or tuck your hair into the neckline, it’s flirty, a little bit cheeky and casually cute. This rolled turtleneck sweater is lightweight and cozy, perfect for layering with vests, leather jackets and even under your trusty puffer. Roll the sleeves up to showcase your bracelet collection for added glam.
6. A classic coat that exudes “borrowed from the boys” style
Sure, double-breasted peacoats are always going to be a wardrobe staple, but this single-breasted design has a sleek and minimal design that makes us think of a beloved guy’s coat. It’s a warm wool blend and purposely lacks bells and whistles for a streamlined (read: not fussy) look.
7. A leather carryall to take to work, the airport and beyond
We’ll always go wild for Tory Burch and this tote is a perfect example why. It’s super roomy and can fit virtually everything you need for a long day — think a laptop, tablet, binders, a notebook, flats and any other odds and ends you might need to schlep along. The straps are totally sturdy too, so no need to worry about one of these snapping in the middle of your commute home or on the way to happy hour.
8. A versatile pair of jeans you can wear literally any day of the week
Where would we be without black skinny jeans? They can be dressed up for a party or date night and down with sneakers or flats on jam-packed days. This particular pair has plenty of stretch, so you’ll feel like you’re wearing leggings instead of having to deal with something digging into your sides all day. Plus, multiple reviewers swear these are “the best jeans ever” and we can’t help but agree.
9. A ruffled wrap that you can wear over dresses and t-shirts
A cashmere wrap is the ultimate do-all for your closet. It can be worn as a scarf, draped against the back of an office chair, kept handy in your house to throw on for chilly days, or can even be styled over a basic black tee and jeans on a casual day. This one comes in four shades — black, gray, camel and burgundy — and is the softest thing you can possibly ever imagine.
