The Best of Workwear from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I started this blog back in 2012 because I wanted to share workwear fashion tips from outfit ideas to the best bags to carry to the office to classic staple pieces you’ll wear for years to come. And although I’m now working from home full-time, I still find myself incorporating workwear items into my everyday looks. I’ll throw a blazer over my athleisure sets, wear heels with my jeans, and style my button-downs with distressed denim. All of which create a more polished look when it comes to my everyday outfits.

As you can see, I still love workwear pieces, so I wanted to share my top finds from this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with you. The sale opens to the public on July 28th and I highly recommend stocking up on workwear pieces because they are extremely versatile and will get lots of use during the upcoming fall and winter months!

And if an item says sold out, keep referring to this blog post because Nordstrom is constantly restocking these items!


Faux Double-Breasted Blazer

Sale: $85 // After Sale: $129

Starting off the workwear roundup with the ultimate workwear piece: a black blazer. This is that one staple item that I believe everyone should own because can be worn both in and out of the office.

Collarless Knit Blazer

Sale: $58 // After Sale: $89

I love this one because it’s a blazer and cardigan all in one. A must-have piece for fall that you can pair with trousers or with jeans for a casual Friday look!

Kenzie Double Breasted Bouclé Blazer

Sale: $397 // After Sale: $595

A bouclé blazer is timeless in my opinion. They are chic and feminine and even look amazing with a white tee and jeans.

Pinstripe Double Breasted Blazer

Sale: $45 // After Sale: $69

This pinstripe blazer will make you look elongated, sophisticated, and very put together. And the best part is that it’s under $50!


Sleeveless Cutout Ponte Dress

Sale: $49 // After Sale: $75

I love the detail on this midi dress. The cutout is fun yet still appropriate for the office and can be layered with a blazer or cardigan if your office gets cold.

Squareneck Puff Sleeve Mini Dress

Sale: $84 // After Sale: $139

I love this adorable mini dress, but I highly recommend wearing it with tights. Mini dresses can be worn in the office when done appropriately, just make sure it isn’t too short!

Kaytee Sleeveless Sweater Dress

Sale: $134 // After Sale: $229

I shared this dress on stories recently and you all loved this piece! The tan color is beautiful and creates a great base for an outfit. Super cute for fall with nude heels.

Wrap A-Line Skirt

Sale: $174 // After Sale: $295 

A unique piece that you’ll continue reaching for throughout the fall months. This skirt creates the perfect a-line look. I styled this skirt with a long sleeve black top but it would look extra chic with this wool shell.


Everyday Poplin Shirt

Sale: $45 // After Sale: $69

Similar to a black blazer, a white button-front shirt is #2 on the list of workwear must-haves. This crisp cotton shirt is sure to get tons of use in your office wardrobe (and even outside the office).

Cross Front Blouse

Sale: $34 // After Sale: $59

This cross-front blouse comes in white and black and pairs great with skirts, pants, trousers, and jeans because of its length, not too long, but also not a crop top.

Wool Jersey Turtleneck Shell

Sale: $85 // After Sale: $129

I love shells, especially this turtleneck one. One of my favorite workwear pieces to style with trousers and skirts. And I love the sleeveless look with the turtleneck because it can easily be layered with a sweater, cardigan, or blazer.

Tie Neck Shirt

Sale: $39 // After Sale: $79

A fun take on the classic white button-down shirt! I love the detail because you don’t need a necklace and you still look put together.


Stretch Knit Trousers

Sale: $78 // After Sale: $119

Trousers are a must-have when it comes to workwear. They can be worn with so many things and are much more professional-looking than black denim.

Split Hem Knit Pants

Sale: $29 // After Sale: $49

I love the split hem trend, especially on these pants! This style elevates the typical black trouser and will look cute with nude heels and mules.

Slim Leg Tech Ponte Ankle Pants

Sale: $58 // After Sale: $89

A cropped trouser that’s perfect to wear with boots and tall heels in the office. These are also great if you’re on the shorter side!

Faux Leather Trousers

Sale: $39 // After Sale: $59

These are the ultimate fall workwear pants! So fun and can be worn both in and out of the office with a chunky knit sweater or bodysuit.

Pinstripe Skinny Pants

Sale: $29 // After Sale: $49

These pants go great with this Pinstripe Double Breasted Blazer and give you a classic office-wear look. I love the split hem detail on these, very trendy for fall!

Wide Leg Flannel Pants

Sale: $52 // After Sale: $89

I love having wide-leg trousers in my closet because they look professional with a tucked-in button-down. These are almost half off the original price!


Large Le Pilage Canvas Backpack 

Sale: $92 // After Sale: $140

I love Longchamp because their products last a long time and never go out of style. This backpack is great for taking to the office and looks like it will fit most laptops!

Pebble Leather Crossbody Bag

This black crossbody is timeless and versatile. I love how there are two different zippers/pockets, great for organization! A great bag to carry to the office that’s not too small but not too oversized. This is the bag I’m carrying in the photos above!

Maxx Pointed Toe Pump

Sale: $66 // After Sale: $99

A classic nude heel is a necessity in your workwear wardrobe. These can be worn Monday-Friday with skirts, trousers, jeans, and dresses and these pumps are under $70!

Finn Chain Pointed Toe Mule

Sale: $59 // After Sale: $89

For those days when you can’t be bothered with heels, I always reach for mules. Easy to slip on and run out the door while still looking sophisticated. These pointed-toe mules also come in lots of fun colors/prints!

Gigi Leather Watch & Top Rings Set

Sale: $149 // After Sale: $225

A really simple way to elevate your look is with a watch. It’s functional and fashionable and this one has interchangeable tops so you can match your outfits to your accessories!

2ct tw Cubic Zirconia Earrings

Sale: $26 // After Sale: $46

Diamond earrings without the diamond price tag. These cubic zirconia studs can be worn daily with any office look and will make you look extra professional and chic.

Briar Chain Necklace 

Sale: $61 // After Sale: $100

A simple gold chain necklace is a great jewelry piece to add to your collection. This one by Jenny Bird also comes in silver if that’s more your style!

And there you have it! My list of Nordstrom’s top workwear pieces that I guarantee you’ll wear year after year. I like to keep my workwear pieces basic and timeless so you can add trendier accessories and shoes to switch it up!
