If you like the thrill of picking up a bargain and dressing stylishly on a budget, now is the time to go shopping.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially started and this year the savings are as impressive as ever. Major brands such as Nike, Steve Madden and Marc Jacobs have cut their prices by up to 50 percent.

The sale is on all departments, from fashion and beauty to luxury interiors, and runs until August 8, but the best deals sell out quickly, so it’s worth shopping early.

Here are our top eight picks to quickly add to your basket so you don’t miss out.

Marc Jacobs The Shutter Leather Crossbody Bag, $199.90 (was $335)

A crossbody bag never goes out of style, especially if it’s a bag from the king of laid-back chic, Marc Jacobs.

With a double J logo on the side, this is a classic Marc Jacobs piece, made even more stylish by the brilliant white colour.

Inspired by the classic silhouette of a camera bag, this pretty accessory features two zipped compartments so you can stay stylishly organised.

Wear it for picnics, shopping trips or nights out and travel light, it’s roomy enough for your smartphone, makeup, keys and a credit card.


Steve Madden Cedar Bootie, $89.90 (previously $134.95)

As we head into summer, it’s a good idea to plan ahead for fall, and these Steve Madden boots are just the footwear you need to rock the end of this season and the start of the next.

The timeless design confirms this one as a great deal as the V-cut topline and pointy toe style will never date. The gray suede and brown colors are ideal for fall and much easier to wear with denim jeans than black or brown.

An added bonus is that they’re super comfortable thanks to a stacked block heel and cushioned footbed.


Girlfriend Collective High Waist 7/8 Leggings, $40.80 (was $68)

Are you looking for cute leggings that are smart enough to wear every day and for sports?

These Girlfriend Collective leggings are super flattering thanks to the high waist, which ensures that you are supported and pulled in where you need it, whether you’re running, hiking or downward dog.

You will also notice that your legs feel and look slimmer thanks to the compression fabric, which makes you a little slimmer and helps your muscles recover after exercise.

Made from fabric made from recycled water bottles, these leggings are eco-friendly and a real bargain at $40.


French Connection Duna Broderie Anglaise Shirt Dress, $88 (was $148)

Every closet needs a white dress for summer and this dress from French Connection looks great in all sizes.

The knee length makes you feel comfortable when you walk around in it and dresses that fall just above the knee are a lot more flattering than midi dresses that fall mid-calf.

It has a fitted waist detail to sculpt you and the arm ruffles not only add a cute girly detail but also draw attention to the bust so you can show off your curves.

When fall hits, wear knitwear to get even more out of it.


All Saints Balfern Leather Biker Jacket, $325.90 (was $489)

All Saints have almost never discounted their classic biker jackets because they sell well, so the fact that you can now save over $150 is a huge bargain.

Made from buttery soft leather, you can see the quality of this jacket from a distance. But when you put it on, you notice the durability and strength.

With silver-tone hardware and a buckle strap, you can tailor the fit to your outfit. Wear loose with jeans and buckle up with a maxi skirt for some outfit definition.


MAC Award Winning Lip Set, $35 (worth $55)

Beauty fans will be happy to see several great deals on makeup and skincare products in the Nordstrom sale, but the number of MAC products you can buy for $35 stands out with us.

This limited-edition lip set includes the beauty brand’s Prep + Prime Lip, Love Me Lipstick and Lipglass, in coordinated neutral shades. Or you can opt for a bright red collection.

MAC lipglass and lipstick are designed to last all day, so a little goes a long way. Plus, the packaging design of these little beauties would look great in any makeup bag or dressing table.


NIGHT Vegan Satin Pillow, $33.90 (was $50)

If you haven’t invested in a satin pillow yet, now is the time to do so with a savings of over $15 on NIGHT’s super soft satin pillowcase.

Beauty sleep takes on a new meaning thanks to the synthetic satin of the pillowcases that reduces the headboard, sleep wrinkles and the impact of the weight of your head.

You may even find that the smooth surface helps you slide off faster, because sleeping on a soft surface feels really luxurious.

Choose from white, sand or beautiful marshmallow pink.


Nike Tempo Dri-Fit Running Shorts, $22.50 (was $30)

Good running shorts are important when it gets warmer. Nike’s signature Dri-fit technology lets you run for miles in comfort in these sweat-wicking shorts.

Designed with curved, non-restrictive legs, you’ll find these protect your modesty without getting in the way. They feature breathable mesh for cooling ventilation, so you can feel a refreshing cooling breeze as you run.

Nike products are built to last, so these $22 shorts will be used summer after summer and still look the same as the first time.
