What’s the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to spruce up your wardrobe? By adding the right accessories, of course! Bags, baubles, boots, and the like can take you into the next season as you incorporate trends and make even the most basic outfit look more polished—it’s one of the tricks personal stylists use all the time. 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 from July 28 through August 8, but if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, you get to shop during Early Access, which begins July 16 or earlier depending on your Nordy Club Cardmember status.
Ready to get started? We found quite the selection of jewelry, shoes, sunglasses, handbags, beach bags, and more that will take your wardrobe from drab to fab ASAP. Keep reading to see our top picks—and your new favorites.
Sam Edelman Lex Boot
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 and looks best in an unexpected color.” She suggests these utilitarian-style leather boots from Sam Edelman, which have a lace-up style and zipper closure. In keeping with Kanfer’s advice, we’re opting for Mineral Green. Here are more of the Nordstrom shoes (and sandals!) we’re buying right now.
Coach Leather Barrel 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 Spring ’22,” says Kanfer. She recommends this chic leather barrel bag from Coach, which has two top handles, a removable crossbody strap, and a top zip closure. It measures 9.5 inches wide and 5 inches high, making it the perfect size for your wallet, phone, and other small essentials. It’s available in three colors, and we think Twilight is perfect for summer and early fall.
Monica Vinader Siren Mini Nugget 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 three-inch drop earrings were inspired by the colors and coastline of Southern Italy, and they’ll add the perfect vacation vibe to your everyday work wardrobe. One important note: You’ll want to act fast on these. They were a part of Nordstrom’s online trunk show, and they’re only available for a limited time from July 12 through August 8.
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, and we’re betting that this newly released pair from Maui Jim will become an instant favorite. 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 that these frames are actually average size and look good on just about everyone!
Tommy John Lounge Tank
While we all love a good loungewear set, not all loungewear is created equal. But this lounge tank, my friends, happens to be a cut above the rest. Made from a blend of acrylic, 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.
Electric Picks Teardrop Pendant Baby Hoop Earrings
Want to look and feel expensive without actually breaking the bank? These simple and elegant huggie hoops are plated with 14-karat gold and feature delicate, teardrop pendants of faceted cubic zirconia. They are the perfect accessory for date night, brunch with the girls, or every day at the office. Speaking of which, they pair beautifully with these work dresses, which you’ll also need if you’re heading back to the office soon.
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 of 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. Very comfortable and also very flattering. It is not bulky at all—it follows your curves.” Side note: Have you ever wondered why denim is blue? We investigated!
Franco Sarto Bridget 2 Mule
Slide your feet into these faux-snakeskin mules for casual Friday or pair them with a little black dress for a girls’ night out. Not feeling the pattern? They’re also available in three solid colors. These leather shoes have a tapered, square toe and a flattering asymmetrical top line that, even if you opt for a classic black or cognac, make them anything but boring.

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. Looking for a different style? Take a look at these other top-rated laptop bags at a variety of price points.
