Shop Royal-Approved Fashion Deals at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

So many brands celebrities love are on sale at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, including many styles from big brands that the royals — Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry — love and wear all the time. Select jackets, boots, sunglasses, jewelry and more from fashion favorites like Theory, Ray-Ban and Barbour are on sale right now, and we’ve found sale styles similar to what the royals have rocked.

Normally held in July, the sale is beginning a little bit later than usual this year due to safety concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic. After weeks of early access pre-sale deals for Nordstrom cardmembers, everyone is able to shop and save right now. From Aug. 19 to 30, the Anniversary Sale is open to all. On Aug. 31, prices go back up.

Blake Lively in Sequined Chanel Couture

Featuring a ring of flowers at the hip!

There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In ‘Great Outfits in Fashion History,’ Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.

Copy Blake Lively, of course! The actor is constantly landing herself on best-dressed lists with her self-styling prowess, so why not, right? For this occasion, I’m specifically thinking of the oxblood-red dress Lively wore to the premiere of “The Town” at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.

The Most Influential Fashion Trends, Decade by Decade

In the course of history, 100 years isn’t a particularly long time. But in the course of fashion history, it’s the difference between trying to get around in a bone-cinching girdle and ankle-length skirt and easing into the Nike leggings and Vans sneakers you’re probably wearing today. In the intervening years, there have been major shifts in technology, politics, culture, and social norms, and fashion has reflected that in its ever-changing cycle of trends. From the sky-high platforms of the ’70s to the high-waisted bikinis of the ’40s, we see plenty of the popular looks of decades past serving as inspiration for designers today. Below, take a look back at the most influential trends from the 1900s through today (and see which ones you’d actually still consider wearing).

The Edwardian period saw the introduction of the “S-bend” or “health” corset, a style that altered the
