Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dupes

The Nordstrom Sale opens to all shoppers today. It’s been my experience that the things that sell out or are the most popular in this sale every year, are a very good gauge for what will be popular this fall and winter.

I know not everyone cares about what is popular or on-trend, but I love this watching the sales and seeing what people are going to snap up!

Not everyone can pay- or wants to pay, name-brand prices, so I’ve scoured the stores, read reviews until my eyes bled and stalked a TON of my favorite bloggers to give you good options for dupes at lower prices. While I can’t tell about what Nordstrom will sell out of or restock, I’ve tried to be sure that each other item that I’m linking is fully stocked so that you don’t have to waste time. So let’s dive into the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale dupes!


These are the main shoes that have been the best sellers in the Nsale this year. And let’s make one thing very clear: Snakeskin print is EVERYWHERE.


The Style Takeaway for Fall/Winter 2019: Snakeskin print and any other animal print will be huge. Even though block-heeled booties are still clearly having a moment, to-the-knee and over-the-knee boots are still very popular so wear!



Holy Cardigans! The long cardigan is really popular in the sale and the Barefoot dreams cardigans are deeply discounted. I bought the waterfall cardi in last years sale and it is definitely a favorite. They are so soft and they drape in a way that is figure-flattering.


The Style Takeaway for Fall/Winter 2019: Pairing a long cardigan over the top just about anything will give you a longer, leaner look. This is one style trend that I can definitely embrace!



Lace cami’s, wrap front tops and more animal print are very popular sellers this year. I honestly didn’t see any tops in the sale that I feel like I can’t live without and really nothing “wowed” me in this department.


The Style Takeaway for Fall/Winter 2019: Tops that are silky, that wrap or tie and anything with animal print are very popular this year, along with layering cami’s. All of which would look great under that longer cardi above.



The Spanx leggings are in the sale and will most likely sell out at that price, as well as the awesome Zella Live In Leggings. If you don’t have a pair of Spanx faux leather leggings, I highly recommend grabbing them at this price. If they sell out you can grab them here at the same price. High waists and flares are the best sellers in denim this year. With Madewell, Good American, FRAME and Madewell being deeply discounted. P.S.- “Dad jeans” are a thing……I think I’ll be passing on that one!


The Style Takeaway for Fall/Winter 2019: Legggings are still a staple and all. the. things. are popular in denim! We are finally moving away from the low rise and into mid and high rise jeans, which are much more forgiving around the middle! Skinny’s are still everywhere and the true flares are having a moment again.


For The Home

The Barefoot Dreams blankets are deeply discounted and will probably sell out. The Nordstrom throws are also in the sale at a great price and are excellent quality. The Dyptique Candles are an excellent price for the travel set! If you’re in the markey for blankets, I definitely think the Nordstrom ones are worth this price, and they’re gorgeous!




The real surprise to me in accessories was how many wool, fedora-style hats there were! Kendra Scott jewelry always sells well in this sale and the Quay Sunglasses are at an excellent price. See all the sunglasses in the sale here.


The Style Takeaway for Fall/Winter 2019: I suspect we will see fedoras gracing the heads of bodies clad in some sort of long shawl or cardigan, creating a cool, boho vibe.


I hope you liked this post! Do you like seeing looks for less? I actually really love finding them! Did you clean up at the Nordstrom sale this year?

    Great post! So much useful info, thank you! My secret is that so many of the things that were in the sale last year that are in the sale this year are sold at Nordstrom Rack. I have shopped this way for a few years now. I have found the last year’s version which is almost identical to this year’s version at amazing prices. It’s so fun to find a deal!

      Cheryl- thats such a great way to shop! And you are SO right about Nordstrom Rack! They sell out fast in sizes, but totally worth the hunt when you get those bargains. I’m a bargain girl at heart totally, lol.

      Thanks Julie! And I agree I mean lets face it, it’s not the only store in town, lol. (But their marketing game is on point! 😀 ) I’ve gotten some really great cardis from Amazon this year! Loving their easy returns policy now.

    Great list of dupes, Melissa. I noticed a few of the same things you did, i.e., fedoras, flares, and “meh” tops-haha! I want a fedora so badly, but our weather wouldn’t allow it except for a couple of days here and there. It’s taking my eyes awhile to get readjusted to flares, but I’m “all in” on the wide-leg trend.

    I love the idea of finding even less expensive pieces like this Melissa!! I may have to copy this one of these days.
