If I’m being honest, the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale doesn’t have as many standout Contemporary buys as it usually does. But, that doesn’t mean the sale isn’t worth a good look.
I spent a good chunk of time browsing through the Contemporary site section, as well as the Savvy and T.B.D. store sections. I narrowed my favorites down to these top picks, which I think have the just right mix of style and savings. Check them out…
This modern dress fuses a traditionally menswear henley with a feminine, body-conscious fit. The easy shape will feel effortless on a warm summer day, but still look sharp. Plus, James Perse fabrics are to-die-for soft.
→ Buy the James Perse Short Sleeve Henley Dress, $134.98 (was $225.00), at nordstrom.com.
Frame Denim is one of the hot new denim labels on the block, so it seems like a no brainer to pick up a “test” pair when the deal is this good. I particularly like the nubby texture of these Nordstrom-exclusive jeans – if it’s not true ring-spun denim, it sure is a great imitation.
→ Buy the Frame Denim Le Grand Garcon Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans, $143.40 (was $239.00), at nordstrom.com.
I originally tried on this open-front Joie blazer via the new “try before you buy” online shopping service Lyon + Post. I fell in love with the combination of crisp fit and dark navy linen construction. But, I had already picked out too many other items and had to pass for the sake of my budget. Glad I did, because this sale price is fantastic.
→ Buy the Joie Mehira Blazer, $166.80 (was $278.00), at nordstrom.com.
This lightweight cotton shirt has a subtle, laid-back vibe that screams French girl street style. I’m picturing it tucked into black leather or coated denim pants, paired with midi heels.
→ Buy the Splendid Back Pleat Pinstripe Shirt, $76.80 (was $128.00), at nordstrom.com.
One of my favorite things about big sales is that it presents the perfect excuse to try a style that seems a little too much of a risk at full price. Like these Joe’s jeans. Lightweight denim fashioned into a jogger pant style is risky, but so, so cool.
→ Buy the Joe’s Off Duty Groove Slim Jogger Pant, $99.00 (was $165.00), at nordstrom.com.
