Whether your style is classic or trendy, laid-back or edgy, Nordstrom has a wide selection of accessories to get the job done.
And there’s no time like the present to pick up some new pieces, because Nordstrom is once again holding its famous Anniversary Sale, where you can get amazing deals on nearly everything your heart desires. “Anniversary is the perfect time to rethink your entire accessory wardrobe as we return to the office, going out, and traveling—from rebuilding your shoe closet to incorporating statement bags and colorful jewelry,” says Nordstrom’s fashion director, Elizabeth Kanfer. This year, the annual sale runs July 15–31, but if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, you get to shop during Early Access, which begins July 9 or earlier, depending on your Nordy Club Cardmember status. We found the best Nordstrom accessories, from jewelry to shoes, sunglasses, handbags, and beach bags that will take your wardrobe from drab to fab ASAP. Keep reading to see our top picks—and your new favorites.
Dolce Vita Paily Slide Sandal
One of the best Nordstrom accessories that’s trending right now, this Dolce Vita block heel will escort you to all your spring, summer, and fall celebrations. The braided strap detailing adds an elegant yet fun touch, and the block heel makes it one of the more comfortable summer heels available. This Nordstrom sandal is so stylish, you’ll want to grab one in every color.
Coach Leather Crossbody Bag
If you don’t have a high-end purse in your closet, it’s high time you bought one. In fact, accessorizing with one is a simple fashion upgrade that can elevate your style instantly. “Statement-making bags in fun colors and new shapes are on trend and take you through the summer and into the next spring,” says Kanfer. We like this Willow Pebble Leather Crossbody Bag from Coach because it features a modern take on a classic crossbody style—and it comes in statement colors including papaya and aqua.
France Luxe Elodie Cuff Ponytail Holder
Squeeze an extra day (or two) out of your blowout with some dry shampoo and a styled ponytail. This sleek cuff ponytail holder will give your days-old blown-out hair an effortlessly chic and polished look. Just tie your hair back with the elastic, open the cuff, position it over the elastic, snap it closed, and voilà! You’re good to go.
Kendra Scott Elle Filigree Drop Earrings
When it comes to jewelry, Kanfer points out that “for Zoom calls and weddings and events, jewelry looks best bold and colorful.” These stunning drop earrings are the perfect size to wear every day and at formal events. They’re a highly reviewed Nordstrom accessory and come in five bold colors that make an eye-catching statement, just like Kanfer suggests. Wear them with a stylish top for video calls or with your favorite athleisure.
Maui Jim Kini Kini 54mm Gradient Polarized Rectangular Sunglasses
If there’s one summer accessory that everyone needs, it’s a pair of quality sunglasses. These Italian-made glasses feature bold angles, glossy frames, and ultra-thin polarized lenses. Worried they might be too big or too bold for your face? So were we—until we tried them. Turns out these frames are actually average size and look good on just about everyone!
Sam Edelman Garret Bootie
If you’re looking to update your shoe collection, start with a pair of boots that hits on fall’s biggest trends. According to Kanfer, “the must-have boot is a lug bottom” (bonus points for choosing an unexpected color). She suggests this style of utilitarian-style leather boots, which have a lace-up design and zipper closure. We’re going all in on the modern ivory pair so we can keep this bootie in rotation all season long.
Skims Soft Lounge Tank
While we all love a good loungewear set, not all loungewear is created equal. But this soft lounge tank happens to be a cut above the rest. Made from a blend of modal and spandex, this tank is buttery soft and fits like a glove. Wear it on its own with cozy coordinating joggers, or layer it under a sweater or denim jacket as the weather gets cooler.
Sterling Forever Baguette Huggie Hoops
Want to look and feel expensive without actually breaking the bank? These simple and elegant huggie hoops feature a glowing 14-karat gold-plate with baguette-shaped cubic zirconia dangles. They’re the perfect accessory for date night, brunch with the girls, or everyday office wear when paired with these Amazon work dresses.
KUT from the Kloth Helena Denim Jacket
Denim jackets are a wardrobe staple, but finding the perfect one can be tricky since they’re often stiff or boxy. However, more than 600 Nordstrom reviewers rave about Kut from the Kloth’s denim jackets. This new dark-wash version of the fan favorite is made from a cotton and spandex blend, has adjustable waist tabs, front-button closure, and long sleeves with button cuffs. In other words, it has all the features of a classic denim jacket without sacrificing comfort. One reviewer writes, “This is hands down the best jean jacket I have ever tried on and purchased. It has a nice softness to it, so it doesn’t feel scratchy or restricting. It’s not bulky at all—it follows your curves.”
Steve Madden Friends Pointed Toe Mule
Everyone needs a good pair of mule slides for everyday office attire and dressing up outfits. This pointed toe mule from Steve Madden features a loafer-like shape with gold chain hardware for an elegant feel. Plus, it comes in three different colors and fabric finishes. If you’re a die-hard flip-flop fan, check out our list of the best flip-flops you’ll want to live in for the rest of the summer.
Fjällräven Kånken 15-inch Laptop Backpack
Believe it or not, this backpack is what put Fjällräven on the map. Why, you ask? The answer is as simple as the design. It’s simple, functional, and virtually indestructible. Company founder Ake Nordin set out in 1978 to make an affordable backpack designed for school children as a way to curb the rise in back pain that many young Swedish citizens suffered from. The backpack made its way to the States in 2010, and it’s been a cult favorite ever since. The Kånken can be carried as a backpack or rucksack and will hold a laptop or iPad up to 15 inches. Plus, it comes with a removable seat pad, so you can be comfortable wherever you go.
Adidas Relaxed Strap Back Hat
Whether your blowout is a few days past its prime or you’ve worked up a sweat during your morning workout, this classic Adidas cap has you covered. It’s 100 percent cotton and adjustable, so you can achieve the perfect fit. Work out in it or wear it as a summer hat for other outdoor activities and throw it in the wash when it needs a refresh.
Longchamp “Le Pliage” Large Tote
Whether you’re heading out for a much-needed girls’ weekend or a quiet wellness retreat, this roomy, nylon tote bag will hold everything you need for a quick getaway. Its embossed leather handles, zip-top closure, and outer snap tab make it easy to carry, as well as open and close. And once you get home and unpack, the entire bag folds up for easy storage.
Anne Klein Ceramic & Stainless Steel Apple Watch Bracelet Band
Instantly elevate the look and feel of your Apple Watch with this rose gold band from Anne Klein. It looks just like a high-end link chain watch, and the length is adjustable to comfortably fit your wrist.
Note: This bracelet-like pick is best for 42mm and 44mm Apple Watches.
Tory Burch Perry Colorblock Leather Tote
This Tory Burch tote is about to become your new favorite. The large, versatile bag holds everything you need to make it through the day—even if you don’t travel lightly. Pack everything from your wallet, cell phone, and makeup bag to a laptop, books, and even some snacks and water bottles. It has a top zip closure to keep your belongings safe, and it easily transitions from daytime to date night. The colorblock design adds a delicate statement that’s guaranteed to make people wonder where you got this tote from!
BTB Los Angeles Hola Beaches Straw Tote
Let everyone know you’ve arrived with a little help from this cheeky straw tote. At 17.5 inches wide and 14.5 inches tall, there’s plenty of room to hold all your beach essentials, including your favorite beach towel, sunscreen, cover-up, and beach read.
Bandanas are trending big time right now—and no, we’re not talking about the standard paisley ones. This stylish bandana comes in several colors and patterns, immediately dressing up any ‘fit. Wear it in your hair or around your neck for an effortless look that can be worn from spring to fall.
Brixton Joanna Straw Hat
Whether you’re spending the day at the farmers market or taking a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk, you’ll want a summer hat to keep the sun out of your eyes. This wide-brimmed straw hat is the epitome of classic style, and it has hundreds of nearly five-star reviews to back it up. While most reviewers can’t say enough about its versatility and affordability, several caution that the hat runs big. We suggest ordering a size down if you want a nice, snug fit.
Brook and York Maisie Initial Layering Necklaces
Calling all minimalists! Layering your necklaces is super trendy right now, but if you’re not into wearing tons of jewelry, then consider this simple set, which consists of two 14-karat-gold-plated necklaces that can be worn together or separately. The simple bar pendant comes engraved with the initial of your choice. Choose your own initial or give it to that special someone as a sweet personalized gift.
Tory Burch Quilted Convertible Leather Bag
The small shoulder bag is a trend we never thought would make such a big comeback, but we’re surprisingly pleased it did because it makes a stylish addition to any capsule wardrobe. We like this Tory Burch quilted leather handbag because it can be worn as a shoulder or crossbody bag—and it has more than 100 Nordstrom reviews. Plus, four color options are available.
Pro tip: Reviewers note that this bag is small, similar to a clutch. We recommend wearing it as a statement piece or when you only need to carry a few essentials like your phone and lipstick.
