We don’t have to wait for Black Friday to score some serious steals. Why do you ask? Because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially back! Christmas in July has never been more of an IRL thing than it is right now. It’s the perfect time to score new styles at incredible discounts to wear for the end of summer – and it doesn’t hurt to shop for the coming fall months.

Two of the top-selling categories are still dresses and shoes, especially sneakers. Honestly, the two go together perfectly when you want to rock an outfit that’s both cute and casual. So we’ve decided to give you the best selection of the two from the sale below!


1. Our absolute favorite: We love ruched bodycon dresses like this one from Treasure & Bond because they’re so versatile and undeniably flattering – originally $49, now just $36!

2. We also like: While not your typical day dress, this tennis dress from Zella can be worn both for training and as a daytime casual ensemble – originally $79, now just $50!

3. We cannot forget: If boho styles are your thing, check out this Chelsea28 maxi dress which has lovely, ethereal, floaty layers of chiffon – originally $119, now on sale for $79!

6. Summer-Fall transition number: As summer draws to a close and fall begins to roll in, you’ll be able to wear this BB Dakota Button Down Dress by Steve Madden – it used to be $79, but now it’s $50!

7. Best Simple Dress: This knit tank midi dress from Vero Moda is simple, but that’s what makes it so chic – originally $59, now on sale for $40!

8. Favorite sales splurges: Sales like this are a great chance to save on all the items you’ve been eyeing, and we’ve got this bodycon dress from Allsaints in our sights – it was $229, but now you can score it for $150!
