What to Buy at the Nordstrom Summer Clearance Sale

Friends, the Nordstrom Summer Clearance Sale is here!

For a limited time (through Sunday, 7/19) clearance styles are marked an additional 25% off, for a total saving of up to 70%! (The prices you see online reflect the extra 25% off. Some exclusions apply.)

This is a great time to grab a few fresh pieces to get you through the rest of the summer, or fill any remaining holes in your warm weather wardrobe.

I put together a look I created with some of my Nordstrom summer clearance sale purchases. Unfortunately, a few have since sold out, but I’ve got a big roundup at the end of this post with all my top picks that are still in stock.

This studded v-neck tee is perfect for pairing with jeans or shorts. The stud details take it up a notch from your basic v-neck t-shirt, and it also comes in a universally flattering periwinkle blue.

It has a traditional fit with shorts sleeves and a straight hemline with small slits for easy front-tucking. The fabric is a comfortable cotton blend, and it runs true to size. Shop more Nordstrom Clearance tops and tees.

I paired it with these Paige Verdugo skinny crop jeans. These are super flattering, and so soft and comfortable. The Paige Verdugo has long been one of my favorite denim styles. They have a 25″ inseam with a 10″ leg opening and a 9″ front rise. Shop more Nordstrom Clearance women’s jeans here.

I also snagged this leather tote in a versatile stone color. It’s the perfect everyday size, with a great little smartphone pocket on the outside.

If you’re the type to carry just one bag all the time, this color will go with literally everything in your closet. Shop more Nordstrom Clearance handbags.

And these snake print wedge espadrilles are perfect for dressing up or down with all of your summer going-out looks.

These have a padded footbed and are very comfortable to walk in, and you can’t beat the price.

They run TTS, or size down if in between; I have the 8. Shop more Nordstrom Clearance women’s shoes.

And don’t forget about accessories!

This Gorjana compass coin pendant is perfect for layering with other delicates, or it can stand alone. Shop more Nordstrom Clearance accessories.

As always, you can count on Nordstrom for free shipping and free returns, and if you want your order sooner, opt for their contactless curbside pickup! (You can filter your results when shopping their site by items available for pickup at your local store.)

Also, if you aren’t yet a member of The Nordy Club, now is a great time to start earning points towards future purchases! And if you opt for the credit card, you get a $40 Bonus Note when you make any purchase at Nordstrom,, or Nordstrom Rack on your new card the day you’re approved.

The credit card is also your ticket to Early Access at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! FYI, I put a clickable link to all of my #NSale 2020 coverage in the menu bar at the top of my site for easy reference. If on mobile, just tap the 3 bars at the top left for a drop down menu.

  1. Well darn, the studded tee is sold out! 🙁 I placed an order with Nordstrom Rack last night, as they are having a good sale also.  I bet it was nice walking around the mall yesterday.  It was so nice seeing Caroline in one of the pictures.  Both of you look so nice in your maxi dresses. Have an awesome day!

  2. Thank you for always including the men in your Nordstrom posts! Just ordered one of the Nordstrom brand shirts for my husband – I have heard such good things about them. At $26, it’s a steal! Thanks for keeping us AND the men in our lives looking good JLS! 😉 Caroline is beautiful, just like her mama. 🥰 Have a great day!

  3. So sad–I typically love new shoes, but all I’m wearing these days are my ugg slippers or ugg slides and sneakers only these days.  I can’t imagine buying a whole new shoe wardrobe for the fall.  Nonetheless, I tried two pairs of those P448s.  They are too big in the heel for me it seems. I was surprised and quite disappointed.  Are the Vejas more narrow in the heel, for example?

  4. Great post. Lots of hard work on your part. Good to hear knee high boots are going to be in……. then it will mean skinny jeans will be too?????  The wider crop are hard for me to buy online. I’m short so the length doesn’t always hit right. Can’t believe we are already close to the Nord Anniv sale and it’s late this year. You’s think with Covid the days would be longer but doesn’t seem like it. Cases are going up and my daughters Mother and father in law have it so I’m backing up in going out too much again. Scared me. Be safe.
