This is probably part 1 of our roundup — we’re covering blazers, dresses (so many cute ones!), coats, and a few pants. (I still have yet to round up skirts, and have yet to look at shoes and bags.) What’s on your wish list when the sale opens for most cardmembers on July 9?
July 14 update: note that items in italics are currently sold out; if you really like it keep checking the link, though, because items do come back in stock!

Here are all of our picks from the 2022 Nordstrom anniversary Sale!
Note that anything marked with an asterisk comes in plus sizes as well, and anything marked with a + comes in neutrals.
If You like to dress in Neutrals…
I tend to feature more colorful items because I feel like you can see the details better on the screen, so I’ve marked everything on this page that comes in a neutral with a + — but I thought I’d feature some here as well.
top row: black dress / black dress* / turtleneck / sleeveless blouse / cropped cardigan / boxy cardigan / print blouse / short-sleeve sweater
Bottom row: long cardigan* / gray blazer / gray suit* / black suit / black blazer* / brownish coat / black coat / tan coat
Great blazers in the 2022 Nordstrom anniversary Sale
If you’re hunting for a solid blazer separate, check out our suits roundup — there are many blazers in that roundup that would work as a separate. A substantial trend in the NAS this year: plaid blazers. We’re rounding up our favorites, but you can see all of the plaid blazers here. (Oh, and one of my top picks keeps disappearing and reappearing in the sale — this plain black structured blazer.)
Pictured ($79-$119): chevron / greenish plaid / purple+ / houndstooth
Pictured, $98-$439: pink check / brown plaid+ / purple leather / red plaid
(I personally couldn’t do moto/leather jackets for work… but this TikTok from the governor of Michigan convinced me of their general appropriateness.)
The best dresses for work in the 2022 Nordstrom anniversary Sale
There are soooo many terrific dresses this year — and the vast majority are under $200. (I’m not including a section on sweater dresses because I feel like those are such “know your office” items, particularly with the midi dresses — but here’s a link to get an idea. I have a few selected for myself but they feel more weekend than work to me.) Ditto for this “maxi” dress from Club Monaco — it could work in some offices, but not all.
Great dresses for work Under $200
Pictured above, $59-$79: burgundy+ / navy / red / green / black
Pictured above, $79-$105 (*plus sizes*): burgundy* / black* / green plaid / teal / red*
Work dresses with fun Prints
Lots of prints this year, with a lot of them in “know your office” styles (mini dresses, midi dresses, tiered dresses, etc). Julia Jordan has a lot of them in the under $100 range, as does Maggy London and Eliza J (the latter two with lots of plus-size options). I’ve noted which ones come in plus sizes with an asterisk.
Pictured above, $81-$118: blue-teal* / black floral / blue floral / tropical print* / diagonal print* / rose floral*
Plus size dresses for Work
Note that a lot of the dresses above come in plus sizes as well! We’ve marked them with an asterisk.
