Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Must-Have Outerwear

I’m always excited to shop for outerwear, but most oftentimes I’m let down because of fit. I’m telling you, petites have the hardest time finding coats and jackets that work for small frames. I didn’t have a ton of luck while shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – some I bought and tried on were way too big and others I waited too long and they sold out (I should have snagged this one in the nutmeg color). I did score 2 that I’m obsessed with and one I’ve had for a year. All petite-friendly and all of them I would recommend jumping on because they’re still in-stock!

Bernardo Packable Jacket petite xs – I’ve had this coat since last fall/winter and it’s my favorite! The style is so chic for a puffer jacket and I can go on and on about the fit. I’ve never had a petite jacket fit this well. The black color goes well with everything and the rose gold hardware really pops. The jacket is super warm and has a hidden hood in the collar (although, it’s not the best). The Down & PrimaLoft fill is super soft and lightweight and it’s packable, meaning it can be packed in the little bag it comes with (great for travel). I wear this to the gym, to walk the dogs, to run errands, seriously, it’s the best!

Sam Edelman Anorak petite xs – This was such a pleasant surprise. I’m such a sucker for anoraks and the faux fur hood made this a no brainer for me. While the petite xs fits a bit oversized, I don’t mind it at all. The sleeves hit right at the wrist and there’s pull-ties on the back to help cinch the torso of the coat. Not the warmest, but definitely chic and easy to throw on with layers in the fall and winter.

Bernardo Hooded Packable Coat petite xs – I now have 4 Bernardo coats after adding this one to my closet. You probably think I’m crazy, but they’re the best fitting puffer coats (except maybe my wintress coat from J.Crew). In Oregon you need as many of these coats as you can fit in your coat closet. I already have a longer black one, so I opted for this soil color. It’s a green/gray I want to say. It’s super pretty in-person and the rose gold hardware pops and really makes this coat stand out. Petite ladies, this coat is the perfect length. Not too long and not too sure. I couldn’t recommend it enough!
