My closet is currently stuffed to the brim, but I’ll never turn down the chance to at least browse a sale. The latest event I’m fixated on is none other than Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale. And if you know anything about sales, this one is pretty legendary. I’ve already talked about the viral accessories the retailer has stocked on serious discount, but now I’m shifting gears to one of my specialties: expensive-looking staples for less.
When it comes to scouting cheap fashion finds that deceptively look designer, it’s best to go for pieces with simple details and hefty materials. Think thick knits, crisp poplin, and denim, as well as structured jackets with minimal touches. Scanning Nordstrom’s epic sale, I spotted several of those go-to items including several blazers that I’d never guess were a cent below $500. To run through all of the luxurious staples I discovered, keep scrolling below. Each of them is guaranteed to serve peak extravagance.
