Best Dresses and Sneakers To Shop

We don’t have to wait until Black Friday to score some serious steals. Why? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is back! Christmas in July has never been more popular than it is now. It’s the ultimate time to score new styles at amazing discounts to wear for the end of summer — and it doesn’t hurt to get shopping done for the upcoming autumn months.

Two of the bestselling categories are always dresses and shoes — specifically sneakers. They work well together if you are looking for a casual, but cute outfit. We have compiled the best selection of both for you below!


1. Our absolute favorite: We love ruched bodycon dresses like this one from Treasure & Bond because they’re seriously versatile and undeniably flattering — originally $49, now just $36!

2. We also love: Though it’s not your typical day dress, this tennis dress from Zella can be worn for both working out and as a casual daytime ensemble — originally $79, now just $50!

3. We Can’t Forget: If boho styles are your thing, check out this Chelsea28 maxi dress that has lovely chiffon layers that are floaty and ethereal — originally $119, now on sale for $79!

4. The Perfect LBD Shoppers say this French Connection mini dress is ideal for any type of occasion — it was $148, but now it’s $90!

5. Fun & Flirty: Round out the rest of summer in style while wearing this mini dress from Free People that comes in two different floral prints — originally $98, but now you can get it for $65!

6. Summer-to-Fall Transition Number As the summer draws to a close and fall starts rolling around, you’ll be able to wear this BB Dakota by Steve Madden button-down dress — it was $79, but now it’s $50!

7. The Simplest Dress: This knit tank midi frock from Vero Moda is simple, but that’s what makes it so chic — originally $59, now on sale for $40!

8. Favorite Sale Splurge: Sales like this one are a great opportunity to save on any splurge items you’ve been eying, and we have our sights set on this slinky slip dress from Allsaints — it was $229, but now you can score it for $150!

Comfortable Sneakers
