5 Best Clothing Bets from the Nordstrom Clearance Sale

Thursday, February 12, 2015 • Permalink • 

It’s that time again. The Nordstrom Clearance Sale is in full swing and the deals are plentiful. Maybe too plentiful.

There are literally thousands of items on sale. 8,053 items to be exact (as of this writing). In an effort to narrow down the options, I focused on clothing in the Contemporary section, better known to the Nordstrom faithful as where T.B.D. meets Savvy with a side of Via C. That was plenty for me to tackle in a single sitting. I waded through pages and pages of goods and came up with these five can’t-miss finds.

This natural colored merino wool cardigan has a timeless, vaguely Chanel-inspired look. The gunmetal hardware is a particularly nice detail – not nearly as garish as a gold or silver would be against the pale knit. Wear it with jeans for a pulled together casual Friday work look.

I had no idea how much I would love a sporty-chic jumpsuit until I ran across this beauty. Now it’s all I can think about. It’s a perfectly sophisticated spring night out ensemble, but without trying too hard.

Equipment cashmere is a smart investment-level sweater choice because it wears well and lasts for years. This wardrobe-staple crewneck – available in 6 colors – is an excellent deal thanks to Nordstrom’s new price matching policy.

There is an alarming amount of Burberry Brit on sale. Really, quite overwhelming. But, this military red wool coat was an instant standout, both for the color and the classic Burberry style.

Burberry Brit Marstead Long Wool Blend Coat


→ Buy the Burberry Brit Marstead Long Wool Blend Coat, $896.98 (was $1,495.00), at nordstrom.com; shipping and returns are free.


I found a few pair of Rag & Bone jeans marked down, but these boyfriend jeans feel like a smart buy heading into the spring and summer seasons. The looser fit and lighter color won’t be overwhelming on warmer days, so you’ll get to wear them now and later.
