Start The New Year Off Right With Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale

Kristine Lofgren

Christmas is over, and Black Friday and Cyber Monday are well in the rear-view mirror, but there are still some stellar shopping deals to be had at places like Amazon, Kohl's and Target. Then there's one of the biggest sale events of the year. Nordstrom's half-yearly sale is happening, and it's the perfect place to get that coat, bag, or pair of shoes that you've been longing for at a fraction of the retail price.

Nordstrom has slashed prices on thousands of items, and you can pick your items up in-store or have them shipped directly to you for free. The sale ends January 2, so now's the time to snag your fashion deals to start your new year off on the right foot. Brands like Free People, Madewell, Topshop, Rebecca Minkoff, Nike, Halogen, J. Crew, and Tory Burch are all on sale. You can get your hands on outerwear, shoes, accessories, workout gear, and high-end denim, all at around 40 percent off.

Even designer collections are marked down and, in addition, you can get 60 percent off at the Designer Clearance shop. Nordy club members can use their double points day to rack up the points.

Feeling a little overwhelmed by all the options? To make things easier, we've narrowed down the top items that you need to be adding to your shopping cart no matter what your budget.
