Summer is the best season to be a fashion lover. It’s a time for pulling your most joyful clothing out of storage—summer dresses drenched in prints and riddled with cut-outs, sandals with soaring heels, straw bags infused with the essence of the French Riviera—and wearing them in the sunshine with abandon. It’s also a time for replenishing your wardrobe at highly anticipated summer sales, starting with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale’s fashion deals.
We spend months counting down until this particular sale arrives in early July. Nordstrom’s annual event isn’t quite like other nice saves covered with regularity at BAZAAR—it’s bigger and has a lot to offer true fashion connoisseurs. Each year, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale fashion deals include pre-fall and fall collections from participating designers, so you can get ahead on shopping for the season ahead while soaking up all summer has to offer. The breadth and depth of the savings are also worth noting: Past installments of the Anniversary Sale have included everything from activewear basics to designer tote bags and suiting—with a whole lot more in between.
With less than a month until the official sale preview, get prepared for this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale fashion deals with all the information we know so far below.
When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023?
Let’s get the most important date of the sale on your calendar first: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 will open to the general shopping public on Monday, July 17, and end on Sunday, August 6. Just like past years, Nordstrom credit card holders will get to access the sale early. Members of Nordstrom’s highest credit card tier, Icons, can enter the sale on July 11, followed by Ambassadors on July 12 and Influencers on July 13. All three cardholder tiers will have exclusive access to all the fashion deals until July 16.
There’s still time to move up a few tiers. If you register and are approved for a Nordstrom credit card, you’ll be able to access the sale at the earliest on July 13. Eager shoppers can learn more about application requirements on Nordstrom’s website.
Which brands and designers will be included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year?
Nordstrom will reveal exactly which styles are included in the Anniversary Sale on Monday, July 3, during its annual sale preview. (The better for planning exactly what to shop when your sale tier gains entry, of course.)
Until the full reveal in July, the sneak preview of participating designers on Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale 2023 tips page looks promising. Names we anticipate shopping on-sale each year are once again listed, including Good American‘s size-inclusive clothing, MOTHER‘s editor-favorite denim, and suiting essentials from BOSS. Veronica Beard, Rails, Frame, and Vince are also mentioned in early announcement materials. Then in footwear, Nike, Stuart Weitzman, and Franco Sarto are also guaranteed on the lineup.
Nordstrom also hinted in its post that some brands will appear in the Anniversary Sale for the first time ever this year. Those include Birkenstock’s iconic slide sandals and Cotopaxi’s B.Corp-certified clothing.
Of course, the list gets a lot longer once the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview begins on July 3. Some of BAZAAR readers’ favorite deals from last year included savings on La Ligne sweaters, Farm Rio dresses, Alo Yoga activewear, and Tory Burch bags. Fingers crossed that we’ll see them again this year.
Can I shop any Nordstrom Anniversary Sale fashion deals early?
While the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale doesn’t officially start for several weeks, there are still hundreds of shop-worthy deals to take advantage of in the meantime. The retailer is currently having a designer clearance sale with savings on Prada, Chloé, Balenciaga, Versace, and many more for up to 60 percent off. Plus, there are deals on best-sellers in beauty to complement your fashion finds, like Dior’s Lip Addict lip balm and Tory Burch’s Essence of Dreams perfume.
