End of season sales are my absolute favourite time to buy clothes, because even though the discounts are applied to last season’s merchandise, if you shop smart you can always find basics that will last you year-round. Unless something is a limited edition item, it’s rare that I’ll ever pay full price, even if that means waiting for pieces I love.

We’re coming to the end of Nordstrom’s end of summer sale (it ends Sunday!), and I’ve already taken advantage of the great deals in store and online. Though the sale has been going on now for a couple of weeks, the much-loved department store isn’t slowing down when it comes to savings.

Nordstrom has just added hundreds of new markdowns to their sale section, with deals of up to 50% off on clothing, shoes and accessories for both men and women. Ahead, shop our favourite pieces that are on sale now that you’ll be wearing all through the coming season and beyond.
