I’m honestly blown away.
Some sales have big blowout moments, like Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale or Amazon’s Prime Day. There’s a ton of build up and PR, and to be honest, sometimes it can consequently feel overwhelming and or quickly picked over. That’s why I’m a big fan of the sly little side sale (don’t forget to bookmark the page with all of our sale coverage). Usually they’re not hyped up a ton, and accordingly actually has a ton of hidden gems. Nordstrom’s River Island sale falls in that category—25% off now through February 2nd—so I had to take a peek, and was actually surprised at how many great items I found. I scrolled through all fourteen pages of products and culled the best here, all while taking mental notes about which products I’m going to text to my friends. The sale just got started, so start scrolling while the getting is good, and before my friends get there!
From the caramel color to the shacket details like the pocket, this jacket is an absolute winner.
This coat also comes in a pretty, wearable green.

In our book, these jeans are the perfect fit. The crop makes them easy to wear, they are form-fitting around the top, and relaxed through the leg.
Just in case you need the matching cardigan too.
The cozy polo top is the ideal trend. Easy to wear and stylish, without looking like you’re trying too hard.
Three words we love to see together: stretch cotton trousers. Basically these will feel like workout pants, but look much more put together.

I wouldn’t call gold pants a staple per se, but I think they’re more wearable than you’d think and could be downright fun to own.
The longer the shacket the better in my book.
Plissé is a dream fabric; it never wrinkles and looks incredible luxe.
The kind of throw-on-and-go dress that will become a wardrobe workhorse.
You coolest vegan leather pants just got a sporty makeover.

This is your sign to start wearing more color. Besides, this blazer looks very expensive.
Best for last? Quite possible with this luxe caramel number. Next up, a Nordstrom designer told us the trends that will be big.
